Campground has changed ownership in last several years. The maintenance of the grounds and roads has degraded since the change but the attraction here is the Big Eddy on the West Branch of the Penobscot and the fantastic fishing and wilderness experience. We are 35' long, had some trouble backing into our site due to the placement of stones following a "curved Pattern" -- but got in OK. Next time will try for a different site. We were on the river - electric is available a few hours in the AM and PM and the rest of the time you're on your generator (if you have one). A big negative with this CG is no dump station. You have to carry into town and dump at the municipal water treatment plant or your next destination. The access road(Golden Road) to the CG is VERY rough. Go slow or expect to have repairs needed when you leave. Closer to Millinocket than Greenville. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
These primitive sites are huge along the office side of the Penobscot River. The sites we were in were large with multiple backup sites for trailer tents. The rushing sounds of the rapids were the only background noise heard. Speaking of noise, there is no cell phone reception and radio reception is poor to none. By far the most peaceful campground I've ever visited. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
If you need hook-ups, do not even think of going to Frost Pond Camps. By the same token, if you want to experience camping at its essence you cannot find a better location. The owner is helpful and friendly. He ensures that Frost Pond Camps remains quiet and peaceful. There are cabins for rent at the campground in addition to the six campsites. The campground is located in a secluded area, approximately 1 1/2 hours north of Greenville, Maine. The road leading to the campground is dirt and can be rough on your vehicle. But the bumps just add to the remote feeling. Literally, you can place your hand in front of your face at night and not see it. It is that dark. The sky is overflowing with stars. The pond is beautiful and many fishermen were catching large brook trout. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is another great Maine State Park way up north on Moosehead Lake. The sites were wooded and many right on the water. We had a wooded site and it is quite private and peaceful. There are hot showers but no utilities. You can boat, fish, swim, hike and see a lot of wildlife. Just outside the park we saw a number of moose on different days. Be careful though -they are big and will be protective especially the mothers with their young. It gets very dark at night even in August, if you are in a wooded campsite, so bring flashlights. It is a beautiful area of Maine and the campground is great. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very primitive State Park way up in the mountains on Moosehead Lake, it is awesome. This was our first visit to Maine and we stayed here for a couple nights in a tent. Awesome scenery, great hiking trails nearby, fishing, sightseeing. Very clean and after 10pm you could here a pin drop it was so quiet. We are already talking about going back up there, but we live in NC so it may be a while. Could not find any reviews on the park before we booked a reservation but sure glad we stayed here. We camped here in a Tent.
Our stay here was a wonderful camping experience! We had a extremely large, private, wooded site. The owners are very pleasant and helpful. The price was good also. The reason we gave an 8 rating was there is no sewer, no TV reception with antenna or dish so cable would certainly be a plus. There is also no laundry and the Wishy Washy in town is extremely dirty and equipment malfunctions abound but your only option. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Campground is clean, quite and staff is very helpful. Camp is older but in good shape, sites are nice size. We stayed at a site that had 30 or 50 amp service and we opted for the 30 amp as it was cheaper, I thought this was a nice option. Restrooms are clean with pit toilets. No sewer at any site, but host will provide a pump service free the first week and only charge $10 for the next pumping. This is typical of the camping in the area. No cable available and no TV reception using the antenna. Very close to Greenville and the lake. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Excellent small park. Very quiet with huge sites and you'd be hard pressed to see more than two rigs from any site. The layout is meandering with trees between sites for privacy. There are no sewer hookups but they have an excellent pump out system and a dump station. Your first pump out in a week is free. We love this place. The rate reflects a one week stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
What a wonderful place, each site had apple trees and privacy. Owners are wonderful,helpful and pleasant. The CG was grassed, shaded, level, a pleasant to walk around. Can't say enough about this place, its far away but worth the trip. will go again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice clean friendly park, owners very helpful. Some large pull through sites and plenty of room between sites. Suggest that if you are coming from the south go by the entrance about a quarter mile and turn around at the Indian Hill store and enter from the North as the entrance road switches back and is slightly down hill. Stayed 7 nights, one night free. They also have a sewer pumper and will pump one time free then $10 per pump or use the dump station. We camped here in a Motorhome.
There are not a lot of choices in Greenville and this campground is very convenient to downtown and both the east and west sides of the lake. We had a long but narrow pull through with a 50 amp breaker but it kept popping and we weren't running all the AC's, dryers etc. The site was not very level. Although we have our own facilities, I did peek in the bath house and the "game room". The bath house was pretty dingy and appears to have an outhouse style potty. I'm very glad we had our own facilities. We would go there again, simply because there are not a lot of choices. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A small and very friendly campgrounds campground! The owners go out of their way to assist you in what ever your interest of activities are for the area. Though we stayed only a short time after visiting other areas of Maine, our thoughts are that on our next Maine trip this is where we will start. Moosehead Lake and the surrounding area is breath taking. Combine that with a clean, private campground with large level sites and all the peace fullness one could ask for and it does not get much better than this. Only regret, we didn't see any moose! Oh well, just another reason to get back as soon as possible. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice people running the park. The interior roads were gravel, but easy enough to maneuver. Our assigned site was a large pull-through with some trees for privacy and a nice fire ring. Only water and electric at the site with a dump station on the way out. We did not use the bathrooms but did look inside; they are one step up from a port-a-potty. I've seen better out houses than this park and glad we use our own. This area does not have many places for large RVs, but this one is conveniently located to town. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were able to choose our site. We picked #7 which was secluded, grass lawn and gravel, level site and beautiful. Campground was neat as a pin. This was one of our favorite sites compared to other campgrounds we have stayed. The staff was friendly and very helpful with region info. We are already planning on going back to this campground. We saw six moose during our stay at different areas around the lake and surrounding ponds and bogs. People in the area were friendly and made you feel welcome. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We would recommend this campground if you are looking for a smaller park with wooded and private sites. The park is easy to maneuver around, and the sites are level, although it is an older park. It is well maintained and manicured. It does not have a laundry room. We really enjoyed staying here because the campground was clean, quiet, and convenient to Greenville as well as other sight-seeing areas. The owners are on site, and were very helpful and friendly. They were a wealth of information about the area and what to see. We really enjoyed staying here and would stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a very friendly campground with level sites. They are typical of New England campgrounds in that it is all grass and gravel. The only disadvantage is there are no sewer hook ups but they do have a dump station and offer honey wagon service. It was very quiet and we would definitely stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
