“Love this place - will be back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

We came on Labor Day Weekend as most campgrounds were full in the area but I think they opened up some seasonal sites for rental which is where we stayed. Super quiet on Saco Ave side of the campground. They were very friendly at checkin and escorted us to our site. Some sites are little larger than others or have more trees but most of the sites are shaded. The pools and jacuzzi (there are kids and adult ones) are newer and very clean and oddly enough not too crowded. Showers are free and have great pressure (more than my house) - only complaint on bathrooms is no paper towels just the hand blowers and stalls could be a tad bigger.

They have an aerial adventure park/zip line that my teens loved and hated at same time because they were worn out after couple hours of climbing. It was only $20 and you could use it all day if you wished but they were toast after one session. This same activity outside of the campground in my home area is upwards of $80-150 each - so a bargain here.

If you want to go to the beach you can easily park down by the beach walk area of the park (get there early enough though as it fills up) and then take a 5 minute walk to what I consider a really nice beach which had decent waves on the days we went. The beach has public toilets way down at the pier but oddly enough they charge .50c to use and if you have younger kids there is full set of amusement rides at the pier also. My older teens took the trolley for $1 at night each way and it was packed with people heading to the pier for the evening - it come and goes from campground regularly.

The campground is full of French Canadians who are very friendly and I observed do enjoy wine and dinners in small and large groups. We definitely will head back next summer as along with Danforth Bay in NH - this is another favorite campground for us. Oh and they don't gouge you for extra kids - we were 2 adults and 4 kids - no extra daily fee - just the site fee - thats it :-)

We came with our motorcycles and toy haulers and the premium sites were great for 3 campers! the new owners have put alot of money to make this place look great and have even more plans. over 600 sites, great place! clean and safe! We will go back!

Got to meet Sandy the office manager, she was fantastic, really likes her job and sociable, gave us a tour as this was our 1st time and would return. Being close to the beach yet in the woods, was the best camping!! We do think that putting our camp fire out at 11:00 was too early. People like to sit around the fired after quiet time. Lots of fun things going on, yet we did not get a chance to zipline.. looked like great fun! keep up the good work!!

Room Tip: new cabins look amazing, but if camping get the back premium sites

We loved Wild Acres and wish we'd had more time to spend there. We rented one of the cottages - nicely appointed, some high end touches actually. We were a tiny bit cramped but I think we would've been fine in a larger cottage. Everything was very clean, loved that. I would've appreciated a handout that explained how to contact someone at the office (not just someone who works at the main office of the Resort Company...) and other details, like the times for the beach shuttle and where to pick it up and how much things cost, etc... Everyone was very friendly and helpful (we had a toilet "mishap" and they came right away and fixed the problem) A few more lights around the roads would be helpful if you're out at night for a stroll. Our only real complaint was that kids were allowed to drive the golf cart rentals which would be fine if they are responsible and considerate of fellow vacationers. The kids we observed were not only exceeding the posted speed limit, but were riding with 4 kids in the cart (teens and pre-teens) while holding 2 babies - yes, babies - on their laps. I was honestly worried for their safety and the safety of anyone who happened to be on the path. But aside form that, we will most assuredly return to Wild Acres it's a really fun and also relaxing place!!

I visited Wild Acres with some friends this past weekend and had nothing short of an amazing time. There was so much to do, we didn't have to leave the campground the entire weekend. We stayed in a queen villa, which looked brand new - granite counter tops, comfy beds, kitchen, a fireplace and ac that cranked.
The staff was amazing, extremely friendly and accomodating - everyone from the ladies at the desk including the management to the guys that ran the zip line.
We did the ropes course both days and enjoyed the 18+ hot tub after.
Friends stopped by with young kids and they got to enjoy the playground(s) which seem impecibally maintained.
Great time was had by all - I will definitely be back again!

My friend and I stumbled on this campground on our road trip down the coast. A bare-bones camp site was $51 for the night on a weekday, much more than I would typically spend to camp. After driving through, this camp ground had much more than we needed--mini golf, pools, rope/obstacle course, etc. Although we did not take advantage of these, it makes the price seem much more reasonable.
-Cleanest bathrooms/showers I have ever seen at a camp ground.
-Close to attractions
-Trolly picks up/ drops off at attractions for $1 (although it did not show up when we waited for almost an hour)
-Grounds crew cleans up each spot completely after guests leave. No evidence of previous campers.
-Staff was helpful. Jessica, a manager that we met while waiting for the Trolly, went above and beyond typical responisibilities. She was friendly, helpful, and more than accommodating when the Trolly never appeared. Her hospitality alone earns a definite recommendation from me.

This place was incredible! We stayed from 8/25/13-8/27/13, two nights in a deluxe cabin. There was so much to do right there. We have family in the area, and I actually asked them if they could just come to us and hang out at the campground, instead of the other plans we had. The golf cart rental was a blast! I saw one reviewer complain about the price (I think it was 65.00) but it's for a full 24 hours, so we had it all evening too. It was so pretty riding around at night, some of the long term campers have their sites decorated with lights. The entire park is so clean and beautiful, and the staff was great. Even the coffee at the store was good, and I'm picky about that. We will definitely be back next summer!

Just wanted to write a quick review since I read many mixed reviews! I booked this campground site unseen and have loved everything about it. Pools, hot tubs and activities are all excellent. All sites have new gravel and new bathhouses are under construction. Our family of seven all loved the campground as well as the location. FYI- The park is huge so I suggest bikes for everyone. Overall great vacation in a great location!
