This campground is on a knoll that faces west. The entry road is rough gravel and uneven so, figure on going slow. There were several big motor homes and other trailers there during our stay. Our site (#44) was level, grassy and we enjoyed a fiery red sunset. Our rate was based on AAA. WI-FI is available back at the laundromat (downhill from the campsite). The signal however, was intermittent. The staff was friendly and accommodating and, we did enjoy our stay. We would come again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The person who previously reviewed this campground in 2003 described it to a tee. The only other thing I could add is that you receive 2 TV channels, and it's intermittent. After the first week, we purchased a Dish receiver from Radio Shack. The TV issue, along with the dirt road (it rained a lot while we were here) were the only real issues. There aren't many RV parks around the area to choose from. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We were disappointed with this park and did not complete our reserved time here. In all
fairness, some of this was due to personal preferences. The park appears to have been a farm at one time that has been converted to a campground. Check in
was a bit confused. The "store" does not stock any perishable food items such as bread. The sites are located on a hill behind the office and the access road is dirt with several very sharp and narrow turns,one of which is totally blind. At the top is a large open area with some pull-thrus and back-ins all of which are W&E only. There is a nice view of the surrounding farm land. The 10 full hookup sites are a little further up and are terraced. The owner described them as "pull-in/backout" sites. We observed some larger units having some difficulty getting into and out of these sites. It is very difficult to pull in, unhook your tow vehicle and then get the tow vehicle back out. The campground does own some riverfront property and they do rent kayaks and canoes but the river can not be seen from the campground. It is located across the highway and then down thru a field. We would recommend if you go here and you have a full hookup site, walk up and check it out before you pull your rig up. We would not return here. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a small state park campground that caters more to tents and pop-ups than to RV's and motorhomes. That being said, there are several sites large enough to accommodate larger fifth wheels and MH's. No hook-ups of any kind. The campground entry road (1/2 mile) is steep and a bit rough, but the distance to the campground is short. The campground is heavily wooded and shady. In addition to outhouses in the campground, they have a very nice showerhouse with five rooms. Three of the rooms contain showers, sinks and toilets, and are large enough for a parent to use with children. The other two rooms (also quite large) have sinks and toilets only. The showerhouse was spotlessly clean. The park is on a beautiful lake, and rents canoes and kayaks very cheaply. There are some good hiking trails, including a climb of Quaggy Jo mountain's South and North Peaks. Maine residents pay $10 plus tax, while out-of-state pays $20 plus tax. The town of Presque Isle is only about 10 minutes away, and offers all services and shopping that one might need. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Located 5 miles south of Presque Isle with over 700 acres. Maine’s first state park. There are 30 sites in the woods with water and a washroom near the first sites. There is no electricity. The bathrooms have been redone. Very interesting – there are at least 7 private bathrooms with a shower stall and wash basin (great for families with small children). Very clean. There is a place to swim on a fresh water lake with a place to put in a boat. A quiet spot to camp with privacy in the woods and the drive on route 1 from Presque Isle or Houlton to get there is beautiful. The best part about this campground is that they have one of the nicest group of rangers working there that greet you at the entrance and offered all sorts of help and assistance. They drove around during the night and day to see if anyone needed help. There is a playground and 3 hiking trails up Quaggy Jo Mountain, which in the winter some of them are used as cross county trails. We camped here in a Motorhome.
