My only complaint(s) about the campground was that the roads were somewhat narrow, my site was not all that level (it's hard to drain septic lines uphill), and it is not especially big rig friendly. That being said, this is a small campground that is very well managed! The staff are friendly, helpful and hardworking. When a camper checks out, the site is raked clean. I did not see any litter, the bathrooms are spotless. There are activities on weekends (movie nights, ice cream socials), etc. There is miniature golf, a ball field, volleyball, fishing & swimming. You have a choice between a 50ft pool, or a pond. This campground was a lumber mill in the 1930's and closed around 1963. The stream had been dammed up to create a pond and the logs were floated in the pond to keep insects out until the logs were ready to be milled. As a result, there is a lot of tannin in the water, and while it is clean & certified by the state of Maine, the water has a tea color to it. The camp store is average, the WIFI is fair. All in all, a very nice campground. I'd say about half the sites appear to be seasonal. It is a quiet, family oriented facility. I will definitely come back here when in the area. We camped at Beaver Dam Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Take time to visit Mt. Agamenticus! You can see all the way to Mt. Washington from the summit (79 miles distant). Then stop at Aggie's Ice Cream for a post-hike treat. She has 104 different home made flavors ranging from the traditional to the " You won't find this anyplace else". Have you ever even heard of Maine Lobster Tracks or Brown Butter Bourbon Truffle?

Another great stay at Beaver Dam. Our site was perfect, great location, full hook up, plenty of space and nice stone pad to park on. This was a beautiful, quiet peaceful weekend and we loved every minute of it. You can't go wrong camping here. We camped at Beaver Dam Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The park is kept pristine. The owners work from sun up until sun down to keep everything beautiful. Park is small and quiet. It has everything to make your stay enjoyable. It is a hidden gem that we enjoy and will be on our list of yearly trips. We camped at Beaver Dam Campground in a Motorhome.

Waterfront lots are quiet and enjoyable. Full hookup (sewer) sites are at a premium, so hard to get during busy times. We camped at Beaver Dam Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is a real nice park. It was extremely quiet the weekend we were there which is just what the doctor ordered. Peaceful and restfull was great. The owners were very friendly and made us feel welcome. Easy to walk around with plenty to do in the off season. Not far to the coast and Wells or York Beach. This was our second time here and my wife was wondering why we do not go here more often so I guess we will be back. It was an easy ride coming from exit 3 of the Maine Turnpike. We camped at Beaver Dam Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We really enjoyed the pool. Beware - ice, ice cold. For us, that was okay. Hot humid day, and low chlorine level made for a nice dip and good conversation. Putt-putt golf was fun, but pricey. We had a gorgeous lake site. With the good comes caution on tree roots. The fire pit was the deepest I've seen and rocks just stacked made for complicated marshmallow roasting. But I liked the artistry of it. The stock info on Beaver Dam said 60 sites, but I counted 73. Am noting this because restroom facilities are way under-designed. Three toilets and three showers. Coin showers were okay once you learned how to use them, but chances of an ice cold shower are high. Threading seems reversed for the knobs. I notice port-a-potties by the big rig section. Beaver Dam should consider putting in two of the new style solar latrines. Technically, staff cleans twice a day, but we found owners in often just sweeping and keeping things to a minimum clean. The floors take a beating. But overall, okay. Just adds to stress of the stay. Clearly, the owners work hard. I overheard a child zooming on a bike say to another," I want to live here all the time, don't you?" Not "I wish" but "I want". To be real...activities are limited during the week, and additional costs will add up. The lake looks great. Missed out on renting a boat due to structure of our trip. Neighbor boys appeared to fully enjoy fishing from shore and boats they launched. The dog park is a nice gesture, but it was empty and our dog un-interested. I'm a little dismayed at having to reserve more time at the site than neighbors who popped in and out. We also had a better experience with late check-in than others have reported. We lost 4 hours in severe traffic backup, and staff was good about allowing us entry before 9 PM. For proximity to Dover, NH, the coast and overall, Beaver Dam is a worthy choice. (I added the non-refundable reservation fee into the nightly rate) We camped at Beaver Dam Campground in a Tent Trailer.

Park is beautiful. The owners work nonstop. Office help was polite and helpful. They have a dog park that is in fair condition and gets used regularly. The majority of the sites that back up to the pond do not have sewer. But with that said they have a fantastic view. There activities are based on children and are run on the weekends. Close proximity to all of Maine's popular southern beach areas. You get one hour of free Wi-Fi each day but you can buy a daily/weekly service for a fair price. No cable TV offered. That I would have liked for an extended stay. Will return. We camped at Beaver Dam Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Very relaxing and peaceful place to camp. The staff were exceptionally friendly. There are so many things to do nearby in this tourism-friendly southern Maine area that I didn't take in much that the park offered, but they certainly offer a lot (waterfront walking, boat rentals, mini-golf, pool, & scheduled activities). I would definitely return, and if I lived nearby I'd certainly consider this park for my regular get-away spot. We camped at Beaver Dam Campground in a Motorhome.

We rented for 3 months. Had a waterfront lot and great access to the pond. Easily kayaked, lots of wildlife and flora. Clean as a whistle, not a cigarette butt or candy wrapper on the ground. Owners are hands on and run a tight ship. Services were reliable, neighbors courteous (the park is ~1/3 seasonals but no one is allowed to keep their rig on the campground so there are no unsightly structures. Is good for tenting and RVing and no one is more than 200 ft from the pond. Although it is small, it was peaceful for adults and fun for kids. There is a pool (also immaculate) and the beach. If you tire of fresh water, the ocean is 20 minutes away. Great summer stock theater can be had across the street. I can't say enough good about this place. (The price marked is based on our seasonal rate broken down by day.) We camped at Beaver Dam Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We are full timers and chose this campground to complete our tour of Maine based on location and what we had read here. The owners keep the grounds and facilities clean and in good working order. Sites are cleaned of any trash and pine cones, the fire rings are cleaned out, and the sites are raked as the occupants leave. Every two sites share a metal trashcan that is emptied several times each day. This is a family campground with lots of activities (swimming pool, lake with swimming area, canoes/kayaks, new miniature golf, a mining sluice, game room) and is very full on the weekends. However, it is quiet at night. For dog owners, there is an enclosed "Bark Park" where you can let your dog off leash; several toys are provided for the dogs to play with as well as "bags" for cleanup. Owners and staff are very friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable of the area. Only one washing machine and two dryers - could use more of both (we went to a laundromat in town). We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Beaver Dam Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice little campground. Plenty of room on and between sites. Nice little lake and pool. Well manicured park. Owners seem to be intent on keeping place clean and adding or improving grounds. Nice little but old rec hall. Plenty of activities for kids. We enjoyed this C/G. Close to major Maine attractions such as Kittery or Ogunquit. Definitely quiet here...nice and relaxing. A good deal and must try if you need some R/R. We camped at Beaver Dam Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Beaver Dam is a great small park if you are looking to get away. They have a average size game room. And a LARGE screen TV. They do have some theme weekend but I think they do need a few more activities or at least a few more workers. This park is So dog friends. They have recently open a nice dog park that is nicely fences in so your fury kids have a place to run. The campground is very clean and they have daily trash pick up in the cans that line the road with is also a plus. We camped at Beaver Dam Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We have stayed here many times and the beauty and cleanlyness never cease to amaze us. Great campground. Small enough to be very quiet and personnel, but big enough to have activities for all ages. One of our favorite places. We camped at Beaver Dam Campground in a Motorhome.
