My family and I spent the weekend in the ‘Hummingbird’ RV area in August. Positive: Great Sandy beach area Easy/inexpensive boat rentals Dog friendly Numerous shower/restroom stations that are clean and efficient Fun/quirky store with everything you need Golf karts are available for rent Great access to local ATV trails ————— Negative: We called security twice due to children throwing rocks at our RV and dogs, screaming and physically fighting one another. Security drove past once without stopping and the second time told us it would quiet down eventually (it took till after midnight both nights). Adults were drinking and driving golf karts at all hours and there didn’t seem to be any age limit on who could drive (picture five 10 year olds yelling and chasing one another in karts all day) You are not allowed to bring your side-by-side or ATV into the campground, you have to leave them in an unattended lot outside the campground. The Disc Golf course stated it was 18 holes but we only found 9- we did find torn up areas where holes may have once been and secret camps full of discarded beer bottles but no additional baskets. We got yelled at for riding ebikes (following campground speed limits) and told we had to pull the battery out if we wanted to use them (there were not any rules listed online or in their handbook against ebike use). —————- Overall: it seemed like this place used to be a real gem with a fantastic location and great amenities that has fallen into disrepair and allows disrespectful behavior as part of its culture. If this place changed ownership I’d go back in a minute.

Camped here for1 week 8/13-8/20 2022. The place is large but not being well maintained. Lots of areas run down . They did have free magic show, and free animal shows which our grandkids loved. And the ride on the firetruck that went around the place was fun. Firewood was expensive as were many other things. Would not go back , the 3 mile rough dirt road leading into park itself from the main road should have been a clue as to what we were in for.

Let me start by saying we have stayed here before and loved it. We have sent friends here on our recommendation and they enjoyed it as well. The lake here is nice, enjoy different playgrouns throughout and ability to rent boats for the lake too. We loved it so much despite the 2.5 mile dirt road you have to drive to get there, we booked a 2 week stay here. The site we were given was a great size- no complaints there once you were in it. The super soft sand on a slope which you had to maneuver the camper up (we have a Travel Trailer) was definitely a huge challenge. One that clearly others have experienced as one family went by in their golf cart and told us about a previous recent family who bottomed out their camper trying to get in and out (scary!) But we made it up, set up and were happy. Unfortunately just a couple hours after setting up I went to take my 14 year old beagle mix dog for a walk and a Seasonal Camper's large dog broke loose and attacked him. We immediately reported to campground Security, who both advised there were no local vets they would recommend, and we maybe wanted to go back home for ours (2.5 hours away) and they did say we could call police ourselves. The mistake I made was not calling the police as I was so shocked and hoping my dog would be fine and that the seasonal campers would be decent enough to check in and exchange information (they were not). We did take issue with the security person advising it was our word against the Seasonal campers (mind you their dog was a large breed and broke his chain to get to my dog who didn't see theirs coming and many campers did witness it if they had asked anyone in that area, but sure, imply I am making it up). Surprisingly, the Campground has posted in their rules, "Vicious or unruly dogs will NOT be allowed in the campground. Pet owners are responsible for all actions of their animals" And yet, the owners of the dog that attacked mine were not asked to leave (you definitely get the sense Seasonals are not bound by the same rules). We stayed the next day to let our dog rest. He could no longer stand up from laying down unassisted, limping, sustained a bite wound we kept cleaning and refused to go more than 15 feet from the camper. We made a vet appoint at home the day after that and packed up to leave as we knew our dog wasn't well enough to stay. We asked the owners of the campground if we could have at least half the cost back. We recognize they are a business and weren't expecting a full refund, but given the extreme circumstances of our dog being attacked, their refusal to enforce their own rules, and now having to disappoint the 3 kids by cancelling their vacation, plus incurring vet bills, we thought this was fair. To which they responded it was unfortunate but would only offer a future credit. When we made it clear we couldn’t see ourselves returning to a place our dog was attacked, they still stuck to their "no refund" policy. So they do enforce some rules they post when convenient for them. I honestly am not someone who jumps to write bad reviews, but what irks me is when businesses put such a high value on their end profit and refuses to act with any grace towards customers. And the risk that having the dog still able to stay on property. I really hope this dog doesn’t choose a kid next time it breaks loose and the owners cannot catch it (again) before it causes any damage. Last thing I will add- I did try to speak to campground owner to CONFIRM the other dog is up to date on all relevant vax and they said they wouldn't help me because I had posted a review sharing my experience on Facebook. So because of that- I no longer had the right to ask for any assistance- even where my dogs health was concerned and that if I needed this information I should have called the police when it happened. Lovely, right? Just how every customer hopes to be treated.

Good news is that there are many nice sites well spaced apart with good shade. If your plan is to just enjoy the campground for a few days, a good choice. If this is the base of exploring surrounding countryside, think again. The 2+ mile dusty, teeth chattering, washboard access road is not pleasant. Other negatives are piles of junk and debris scattered around the campgrounds.

This campground has a dump station and wants to charge people $75 to use it. This is ridiculous pricing for the area. Other places charge maybe $10 to $15 and they are more than happy to accommodate RVers. The woman I spoke to on the phone was unfriendly and insisted this was not ideal for us because we'd have to drive several miles up a dirt road. When I explained to her that we have a heavy duty truck and it would be no problem with our setup, she laughed. I told her I was all set. We are now using another local campground for these services. But I would never give these people my business under any circumstance based on this interaction.

Great family campground! We’ve been going to Acres for the past 6 years with our kids. Plenty of activities and a great staff. Beautiful waterfront sites and clean facilities. We look forward to our time there every season. Great beach for swimming too!

AOW is an okay campground for the price, but you could probably find better. Camped last in July 2019 here (skipped 2020 due to the pandemic) and it was okay. ISSUES -Had to call security on guests shooting firecrackers and fireworks at midnight, and could not reach security very well. -Golf carts go way too fast on the roads and it's hard to walk on the roads due to this. -Campground could use renovations. Broken kiddie rides by the beach that haven't worked for years and often steal coins. Playgrounds are very lazily built and often with very little fun equipment. The blue playground by the beach does not have any regular-sized swings, despite the playground being the biggest. The playground by the restaurant is the only one to have swings, and they're tucked in the back by the woods. -Moody Stage and bathroom house removed for no reason in the field, leaving a sad-looking platform that is now used as a stage. -Rundown old vehicles by Chub Pond. -Neglected mini-golf course. -Arcade nearly empty, with like 6 or 7 arcade games left (and most are broken). Former bumper cars area left abandoned. Modern jukebox that could play any song removed for no reason, leaving the arcade empty and quiet. -Rude older lady in the store, always seems like you're bothering her when you shop in the camp store. -Very slow WiFi throughout the campground, despite upgraded modems in the last couple years. -No more paper activity schedules, forcing you to use an app on your smartphone to view their activity list. If you don't own a smartphone, you're kinda out of luck. -Blocking people on their Facebook for no reason. POSITIVES -Rainbow Lake is beautiful and a cool place to swim on a hot summer day. -Showers get nice and hot and are very private, each having its own stall and full door, although some are weak in water pressure. -Scenic location and only two miles from Sebago Lake. -3 miles down into the woods for a nice private spot. -Store is well-stocked and the baked goods are delicious! -Chub Pub Restaurant has delicious, if expensive, food. Did not open 2020 season. I would give the campground a try and see if you like it.

Our extended family (4 sites rented) have spent a long October weekend there for 23 years now and we have enjoyed them all. We have never had a major issue with this campground. It is clearly not a resort style campground but it is truly a great spot for family camping. Our only complaint is the golf cart rental situation. It gets very irritating when you have them buzzing by your site from early morning into late at night. Walking around is quite a challenge as the people driving them feel like they "own the roads". It is sad to find golf carts prevalent at almost all the campgrounds now so AOW is not an exception. What ever happened to getting some exercise? We will continue going here.

We’ve been before, but probably not coming back. Got out at a campsite next to the employees campers. Wouldn’t have been a problem, expect the employees staying at the sites were extremely inconsiderate about quiet hours. Quiet hours ‘start’ at 10:30pm, but they were blasting music and yelling until about 2am on Friday and Saturday night. Nothing against a party, but for a family campground, it wasn’t appropriate. Made it very hard to relax and then try and sleep in the evening. Unfortunately, no one attempted to quiet them down or enforce quiet hours. We tried calling the office, but no one answered and when we checked out no one even asked how the stay was. Very frustrating weekend... Other than this situation, our time would’ve been nice.

The staff here is absolutely horrible- go somewhere else! They’re rude, the spots overlook a dirty little pond. I overheard the owner yelling at some innocent young kids and another old grumpy employee yelling At patrons over something silly. There are so many other options in the area; seriously DO not waste your money here!!!
