  • Beautiful camping and picnic sites. Camp sites are well spread out and allow for privacy. The park was clean and well maintained. Unfortunately, the Maine State Park stamp was missing.  more »

  • This campground was clean and quiet. The rangers were very polite and friendly. The latrines were spotless. And the price was right. I would recommend this campground to anyone visiting the northeast area of Maine.
  • Great campsites. You can buy ice and firewood right at the gate. Lots of well placed water spigots and pit toilets so you don't have to go far, and a nice central shower block with coin op hot showers. Playground for the kids and picnic tables and charcoal grills in the day use area. Online reservations are very easy and the park rangers are very helpful about local points of interest.
