We stayed here for a couple weeks of downtime as we were traveling around New England. Most of the other campers appeared to be seasonal/regular weekenders. Everyone was friendly, they have lots of weekend activities, and it's every quiet at night. Nice lake, docks, loons, tall mature trees. Verizon cell and mifi worked just OK, no T-Mobile service. We had a level back-in site with a view of a wooded area out the front and partial view of the lake out the side. Campground was clean and well maintained. Interior roads were tight for our 40 foot MH, but no overhanging limbs and the manager gave us a good recommended path in. Rate reflects a discount for weekly rate. We would stay here again. - Roaming Together

Stayed here for a week in June. We made our reservations a couple months in advance so our choice of sites was limited; however, the sites are all very nice, wooded, and with space between the sites. Many sites have interesting ledges or large boulders left after the last ice age that provide great places for kids to climb and explore. One tip is that the sites are identified by the size of the RV that they will accommodate. I found these to be very conservative. Our Class C is approximately 30 foot overall with the rear slide open and we would have easily fit in the campsites identified as "small - pop up or tent up to 20 feet." I believe the sizes allow for an RV and one vehicle. Road in from the park gate is about a mile of well graded gravel surface and there were no overhanging limbs to worry about. Access to the lake was by a short walking trail to a beach/picnic area with side trails along the lake shore or through the woods. - ME for Maine

Peaks-Kenny State Park is in between Greenville and Bangor, Maine. There are about 56 sites in two loops a walk away from Sebec Lake. The sites are nice and good size and there is a central washroom with bathrooms, showers and a dish-washing area. The land was donated by the Mr. Peaks in the memory of his parents and one sister that was married named Peaks-Kenny. The walk down to the lake is about 5 minutes and there is a huge shaded picnic area on the beach. A playground, boating area and swimming area are all in this area. The lake looks out to the mountains up north and the views are outstanding. Beautiful lake. We arrived around 11 in the morning and from Sept 20 to 23 it is self-registration so we took our site and put our money in an envelope into the spot for it. We were one of two campers in the park at that time but as the day wore on more tenter's came in. Just a reminder the Maine State Parks do take reservations now for the summer months and after the mid of September reservations are no longer taken and the price drops too. Maine State Parks have really increased their cost for a night’s stay for an out of stater at their parks but with the drop in price it cost us $19.26 including tax for a night and that is without services. Nice stay – we stayed here about 19 years ago during the summer with our three children and it was quite crowded so this stay was so quiet – quite a change. - gsnakehill

Great location near Harvey's RV where we took RV for repair when transfer switch blew. Just a few minutes off highway. Lots of green space and room between sites. Quiet and peaceful setting. Playground, not sure about doggie park but if anyone needs a clean, pretty site near Harvey's, highly recommend. Not too far from Maine Mall, restaurants, supermarkets, shopping although I did not see anything right around park. - Andrea W

I have been staying here for more than 12 years every summer on our trek South in the USA. This campground is my favorite because it is cozy. It's friendly, clean, the owner is fantastic, and they will provide great service for whatever you need. The planes come in on a regular basis which the kids love!!! If you need a nice spot to hang for a few days and enjoy Banjor/Hermon, give these folks the business. As an RV'ER....it is a great spot! - Squappy

We stayed in our new to us trailer while our adult kids and friends stayed in the rental trailer - top notch campground! We have camped here a few time over the years and always enjoy this campground the most out of the other in the Bangor area. Owners are great and take good care of the campground. - daniel31

We stayed here in a 40' MH. The dirt road into the park was long with huge ruts you cannot avoid, resulting in a bone-jarring trip into and out of the park. Interior roads were dirt in poor condition with tight turns, lots of trees to watch for, and potholes. There was no gate into the park and no security.
Hookups: We were told when we made our reservation that only 30 amp sites were available. No problem, we can still use an AC on 30 amps. Except that the 30 amp site didn't generate enough power to keep our shore power running. With nothing running but our refrigerator, we had to unhook completely at night and run off our batteries otherwise the sound of the surge protector kicking on and off kept us awake. The campground manager walked to within ten feet of the electrical pedestal to "inspect" it and told us there had never been a complaint and there was nothing he could do (other campers we talked with told us that the park is well known for having poor electrical service.) The manager moved us to another site but we had the same low-to-no voltage. This had never happened before to us and hasn't happened since, so it wasn't a problem with our coach. Although sometimes water pressure was weak, we had no problem with the sewer hookup.
From Friday to Sunday it was party city with smoky campfires and loud music. The smoke was so bad we kept our windows shut but because it was still hot at night, the temperatures in the coach soared. People let their dogs bark at every passerby. Weekends were hell. The police showed up one afternoon to arrest some drug dealers in their RV and all afternoon there were officers with AK-47s walking through the park.
Site conditions: Sites were mostly filled with seasonal campers and were very close to one another. Site surfaces were dirt and grass was minimal. There's a general feeling of neglect. At night the only light were from the many campfires; there was no campground lighting.
The good: Check-in was fast and easy. Staff was friendly. The campground was set right on beautiful Pushaw Lake and there was a boat launch. The sunsets were very pretty. Kayaks were available for rental. Free Wi-Fi was available in the office. While the signal did not reach any of the campsites, a picnic table was set outside the office for those who wanted to bring their computers to utilize it. - Trisha_slp

We stayed one night while in transit. I would stay here again, even though it is a little over priced. Approach roads to and within this park is the worst I have ever encountered, they are terrible!!!! Many sites have permanent trailers, though most were well kept. The laundry consists of 2 washers and 2 driers, so expect to wait your turn. This park is right on the lake. - R V Camper

Camp ground has lots of seasonal sites with older units parked on them. Years of additions, decks, and out side attachments which makes the area "cluttered" looking. Assigned a site to us that was very difficult to put a 39' RV in due to the many trees in the area. There were other sites available that would have been easier to set up in. The lady on the phone was very friendly and accommodating, but the lady who checked us in gave us "no" greeting, was not busy, but gave us the impression that we were putting her out by having to check us in. Lots of dusty dirt pot hole filled roads around and many tent sites with high grass conditions. This is an older camp ground that appears to be getting run down. We would NOT return to the C/G. - Lakeside013104

After having spent a couple of months in two different family-friendly RV parks, we found Pumpkin Patch RV Park to be a WONDERFULLY QUIET respite...definitely geared more for adults, as there is no pool or other activities toward which families with children gravitate. (There is a grassy play area with ladder toss and cornhole.) Check-in was efficiently accomplished by friendly staff - we were escorted to our site by a staff member; the easily-navigable roads and wide, level sites within the park are gravel. Sites include a picnic table and are nicely spaced, with grass between. Although some sites are fairly tree-covered, most will allow the use of a roof-mounted satellite. We requested a site with no tree cover, so we could use our satellite, and were graciously accommodated. There is a group meeting center (we enjoyed a couple of ice-cream socials), two laundry facilities, restrooms/showers, and a dog exercise area within the park. Located at the entrance of the park is a restaurant, which at the time of our stay was almost completed and soon to open. While staying at Pumpkin Patch, we visited Acadia National Park and Bangor, Maine. - HRTravelers

We stayed here twice. They went above expectations on service. We needed to store some guns before going into Canada. We called other RV Parks, Gun shops, and storage units. Pumpkin Patch was the only ones that very willingly helped us out, locked them in a safe, and did not charge us anything. - LeeAnn Magel

The site was level with central hook ups. Wifi worked great at the site as did the cable. The workampers were very helpful. Restrooms were very clean. - Al and Anne-Marie

We stopped for a night on our way home from a trip to Nova Scotia. It is mid September, so the camp's residents were mostly seasonals. Seasonal sites occupy probably 70% of the campground, so if you are looking for a site in the height of the season you may want to call first.
We camped on site 22, right on Sebasticook Lake. The view was gorgeous and the site well maintained. There are only 7 lake sites and another 7 with front lake view out of 69. Lake front sites do not have sewer hook up. Full hook up sites are $30.00.
There are several docks and boat ramps and a small beach.
The owners were very nice and friendly. Our one night stay was uneventful and enjoyable.
The campground is conveniently located close to Hwy 95 and on Route 2 for travelers driving the scenic route East - West. - Catalina W

A very nice park. Judging by the amount of decks, sheds, etc. I'd estimated that 90% of the park is seasonal. Showers are .25 for 7.5 minutes or .10 for 2.5 minutes. I found the water pressure terrible. They are also very small and cramped. Laundry is reasonable at 1.25/wash and 1.00/dry. Firewood is 5.00 for a wheelbarrow full and paper and kindling is free. Great staff and a nice quiet location. - MSSW

If you enjoy small quiet campgrounds and your equipment is not too big, you will like this park. It is clean, well maintained and has easy lake access for water craft. The back-in sites are on the lakeside and the pull-thru sites are across the road from them. Just be sure to check if the site is level enough for your rig before registering since there are not many sites and some are not very level. They have Wi-Fi at the library (beside the pull-thru sites) and a large number of books for exchange. - JTD2

We stayed here in a motorhome. Roads are good and our site had full hook ups. Park is quiet except for the occasional airplane from Bangor airport. Wifi was slow as in most parks we visit. Park was clean and well maintained. - RayN

The facilities for laundry and restrooms were not acceptable at all. The "activity room" looked more like a storage room with a sofa, tv, pool table and video games scattered about. But the mop and mop bucket along with other cleaning tools and equipment, were just sitting around in there as well. The roads need some work, but were not terrible. The sites themselves are close together and grass and/or mud only. This park accepts Vouchers from the City of Bangor for the homeless. So you have tenters camping anywhere from 25 yards and sometimes closer next to expensive rigs. There was no enforcement of their own rules, i.e. pet leashes, speed limit, noise, etc. The grass at the entry and in the middle of the park is mowed often and well kept, but maintenance around the rigs, was spotty. Internet was iffy, sometime on, sometime off and when on, extremely slow. - Drtskirt

This is the second year we've stayed here on our way to and from New Brunswick. The management here is very friendly and the all the facilities are very well kept. I see some very trivial complaints in the reviews and wonder why the negative comments. It's supposed to be a campground not the Hilton. - johnny ringo

We stayed for 4 nights. Some nights the traffic noise from I-95 was really noticeable and other nights not so much. This is a small park with some seasonals and one section with about 5 pull thrus 1 of which seems to be a seasonal. There are 2 chickens, 1 cat, 1 old dog and a duck with a hurt leg that roam around. There is 1 washer and 1 dryer in the same building as the bathrooms. The pull thrus were fairly level and grassy and I was able to get my Direct TV dish locked in. The road the park is on is pretty rough. - mrracechaser

Good overnight transit stay. It is about 2 miles from the interstate exit on rough secondary roads, but is reasonably quiet even though the interstate is not far away. Chickens, duck, cat plus a very friendly host made for an interesting stop. No frills ... just a good transit stop. We would stay again. Arriving near dark, the mosquitoes were present and hungry. - cherib

Lots of full time run down sites. The manager was OK but the office etc was a mess. Tiny pool. One washer and dryer. The restrooms were clean but run down. $30 as weekend but I'm not sure I'd even stay here at the half price Passport America rate. - kiwitravelers

The Nightly rate reflects an average of 5 days. 3 at the passport america rate, and 2 at the Good Sam discount. Sites are level and long. Plenty of room for any big rig. From our site we could get satellite reception. Good WiFi, Verizon and utilities. I would recommend this park. Especially if you like to play Golf. - roybrody
Aug 2017 - $31.00
Large, level gravel sites with FHU's. Spacious grass "yard" areas, pool, shuffleboard, horseshoes, small playground, and clubhouse/store. Trees presented a satellite problem. Big plus, for golfers, is the 18-hole course on site. Location is a bit off the beaten path so sightseeing requires quite a bit of driving. They have the best wifi we have seen in quite a long time of full-timing. The rate reflects the weekly rate. The interior gravel roads need some attention for rutting/roughness. - rvrrat520

We stayed here in October 2018 in a travel trailer near the end of their season. The owner led us to our site and the owners were friendly and helpful throughout our stay. The park was decked out in fall colors, so despite the rain, it was a lovely place to stay. The staff was busy making improvements to the park when we were there so it will only get better. They also have a nice trail through the woods behind the park that our dog loved to run through. We did not use the showers or laundry, but we did have them fill our propane tanks. There is an area for seasonal campers. We were there in the off-season, but it looks like a very nice family campground with lots for kids to do. We would definitely stay there again. - Dahna

Very nice, helpful and friendly owners who directed us to our large, shady pull-thru site. All hookups worked well. Very good WIFI. Good cable TV until cable company made changes that eliminated the cable. But there were lots of OTA channels available. Laundry/rec building was clean with 2 washers and 2 dryers, a TV, a large table, comfy chairs and lots of books and puzzles. The campground has a nice pool, small store and sells propane. There is short hiking trail near the back of the campground. In addition to RV sites there are several really nice tent sites. Sites are back from the road so there is little road noise. It is quite quiet and peaceful at night. The roads within the park are gravel and easy to maneuver although there are a few potholes. The grass is kept neatly mowed. Good Sam discount is available. - MkvCjv
