We initially reserved 3 nights. We reserved a pull-through for our big rig. The registration process was very smooth. Our spot was very nice. The roads were paved. Our site was flat. You had to have a gate card to get in. This park was very clean. We liked it so much that we asked if our site was open for another two nights and it was so we extended our stay for another 2 nights.
We were at OLD ORCHARD BEACH area to see our grandson play in a local basketball tournament and found this campground real close to where he was playing. They had a shuttle every so many hours to take us down to the Main Street area where we found many reastaurants and shops to see. We loved it there. The sites were clean and big with electric, water & sewer hookups for us for the 3 night stay. It's a great place to camp. MARION
This park has been totally renovated 5yrs ago. I have been a seasonal here for 20yrs now, this is a very clean and quiet campground. I love the changes. Rest rooms are spotless, and roads are paved. They have a trolly that will bring you to the beach for only $1, and so much to do downtown. Give them a try, you will be glad you did.
We had such a great time. I was so impressed with how clean and well-kept this campground was. Also, we loved the option of taking the trolley to the beach or pier. We will definitely be returning again.
I’ll be honest … this is not the type of campground we usually frequent. We needed a place to hide during Labor Day, and they had an opening. The staff in the office is not very friendly – almost rude even. They don’t give you any information other than the standard map of the campground. No information on the trolley even though it stops right at the campground. Now the young men who worked the gate were very friendly so kudos. Interior roads are okay but can be tight when people park their cars on the side of the road. There are several different areas. Tall Pines is only seasonal. The other areas are a mixed bag of seasonals and transient. Bear Brook and Black Forest have more trees. A few sites may have satellite access but most will not. These are actually the nicest sites in my opinion. We were in the Grove section near the front. It is more open so satellite is possible in most sites. There is decent spacing between sites but no privacy. Our site was a short back in site with gravel and grass. We had to back the motorhome all the way up to the fence and still had to park the car sideways. They have cable but you had to use a box provided when we were there. WII FI in the Grove was terrible. It would work for a few minutes then go on the blink. We gave up and used our hot spots (Verizon was 4g 2 bars). It really irks me to pay $73 a night, and the internet doesn’t work. Road noise (especially motorcycles) can be heard throughout the park pretty much all day and night. It is noisier in the Grove section as it is right by the highway, and the trolley stops there. The store has some basic supplies but is a major rip off. They wanted $4.50 for a quart of half and half. On the plus side, the campground has lots of entertainment – wiffle ball court (didn’t know there was such a thing), corn hole, swimming pool, pool tables, and a basketball court. The campground is convenient to the beaches, Portland and Kennebunkport. IMHO it is nowhere near worth the price.…
