Riverbend is a park that runs along the Dead River about halfway between Lewiston and Augusta, Maine. It is a large park that is about half seasonal and half transient spaces. A section of the park is entirely seasonal, then there are occasional seasonal rentals sprinkled throughout the rest of the park. We were there the week before the park was closing for the season, and most of the seasonal rigs were already winterized. Sites are entirely grass, with water and, in the case of our site, 30 amp electric. The sites are the biggest I've seen at any park, anywhere. Really, truly spacious. For the seasonals, there seems to be little in the way of restrictions on what can be built or stored on the site, so most of the sites in the seasonal section were...how to say it...overbuilt. But that's in a section that transients will never need to go, except to do laundry. The laundry room has 2 washers and 2 dryers, and we were fighting for space, even though it was a Monday in October. The main part of the park is like a large park, with grass, trees, and the river. It's really quite lovely. The park has kayak and canoe rentals, and bass fishing in the river is apparently very good. Many of the seasonal renters have bass boats permanently on site. Showers and restrooms are nice, and everything is spotlessly clean. The owners are nice people who really care about running a nice campground. The camp store is well stocked. There's a pool, playground, and game room. Nature trails leave from the campground, and there are bike trails nearby. Highly recommended. - AnnP

It is an "ok" park for one night. Branches drug across our MH and really should be cut. They were very low. All grass sites. We had no sewer. Wifi was NOT free. Showers were free. Only one exit/entrance and not wide enough for another car to pass. That is bothersome to us considering it is very woodsy here. Careful how your GPS brings you in. "Waze" brought us up a steep,short, sharp turn at a RR track. The hitch hit the ground there and I'm not sure how we even did it without more damage. I'm not sure I would stay again. - User3274

Very nice campground with well maintained grounds. Some seasonal camping with well cared for sites. - sandawilliams

Like other reviewers, we needed a spot to get off the road and had a pleasant night's stay here. The transient sites are in a big grassy field. The laundry was very clean. The lady who checked us in was easily confused and had difficulty giving us directions. She dated our receipt in August instead of June. Bring cash or check to pay. - ShoreXplorers

Having some delays in Bangor, I had considered stopping earlier than planned, but we continued on to Dixfield anyway. Calling ahead, the lady said that the office would likely be closed on arrival but to just pick a site and come in the next morning. We don't usually arrive after dark, but this was easy to find and the short term sites were in a large level grassy area with lots of room. Finding a site couldn't have been easier. A seasoned couple own this place and couldn't have been nicer. They don't accept plastic, so bring cash. The WiFi and other utilities worked well. We didn't find any local OTA channels. There are a number of seasonal sites back in the woods. - Trailbuddy

We found this campground on the fly, and couldn't have been happier. We just needed a spot for the night and it delivered. Full hookup (no cable) in a big grassy field. Clean bathrooms, private showers, pool, quiet at night, view of nearby "mountains," friendly management, etc. While the campground has even nicer sites for seasonal campers, of which there were several, ours was great for a few nights. We'll visit again if in the area. - jerry6

Second time using for extended time. Used the upfront lots with sewer. Main area has none. 1-8 are nice long slots that are basically flat but not level sloping down towards front. Leveling system leveled, but you may have to block or look closely when parking to find leveler spot. Staff friendly. Slot 1 allows patio to face into woods with no neighbors, though the maintenance area is near and can hear that sometimes. Was not a problem. Main area is family campground not really designed for larger trailers. - lefield

The park has rough roads going to all sites. Our site was very rough ground. Hard to find a level area for trailer. Some are nearly impossible to get large trailer into. Do not show up before 2pm to sign in, or you will be charged an extra 20.00 dollars. - Charles Fournier

Nice camp. Tight turns if not in the front spaces 1-18. Weekends became basically a party atmosphere. Slots 1-8 were large though surprisingly had to problems leveling so bring some blocks. The road into the slot and out was okay for slots 1-8 but interior to the camp the turns would have been very tight - lefield

Entry road is dirt and rough. Playground had the same children everyday and they looked like they never bathed or owned shoes. Permanent residents have most of the lake front and are a little rude. No entertainment or things to do other than go to a pool full of kids screaming Marco-Polo. Even saw 2 kids in diapers which is illegal in a pool. Complained to the owners about the water going off and got back to the rig and found that the campground now had no water. STAY AWAY FROM HERE. - Robbie-1

Nice lake swimming during heat wave. Very close to neighbors. Sand and grave hard to keep out of camper. Electricity kept going on and off. Grounds are not landscaped and not attractive or inviting. We stayed here to be able to visit with nearby family and beyond that convenience was not particularly enjoyable. The park is almost all seasonal campers. - carmilake

This was a convenient one night stopover from New Brunswick Canada to VT. It has a lovely lakeside setting with many seasonals and families with kids. As mentioned by others, the access road to the park is 3/4 mile of unpaved and bumpy travel but once inside the park the roads were fine.
Our unshaded site was part of an interior circular grassy area. None of the shady perimeter sites along the lakefront were available. We had a comfortable distance from our neighbor for our slide-out and the grassy site was level. We had 30 amp service but did not use their water or WiFi. There was a dump station near the exit but none at the site.
There were several families with kids, both in tents and in RVs. It seemed very family oriented.
Management does have lots of rules and signs. At registration we were handed a plastic bag for trash and a list of 28 rules. Signage in the (only?) bathroom was "no washing dishes or pans in sinks" and "washrooms closed between 8a and 9:30a". Perhaps the park's emphasis on kids was the reason for having so many rules. - BP106

If you like being in the woods and mountains this is it. Doesn't have some of the amenities and updates of some of the more "urban" campgrounds but the beautiful location more than makes up for it. Awesome lake literally steps away from the campsites is great for the little kids. Watch the sun set into the mountains. By far this is the favorite getaway for my family and I! - neil814

This campground hasn't been updated in years. There are a lot of older trailers there, and the lots are unkept. If it rains there, the sites turn into a swamp. The power is 30 amp, but not sufficient to operate a single air unit without browning out. It appears that this is a campground for locals and does not cater to the traveler. When leaving here, my coach got bogged down in the mud at our site. We won't be going back there. I might mention that the roads in the western part of Maine are just awful. They are crowned and potholed, narrow and windy. - chuckfulltimer

This park is off the beaten path but you'll be rewarded with a very friendly and helpful staff and a beautiful quiet campground. Some of the RV sites have 50/30 amp electric which is a very recently added amenity. Not sure how many sites have electric but my site #7 did and I'm sure there are a few more. It's handy to some great hiking and cycling should be good since I observed that the roads had light vehicle traffic for the most part at least on week days. A well maintained place overall. - bgbassman

Mount Blue State Park was the first stop on our week-long ME-NH-VT camping trip. The drive was long but interesting. Once you get off I-95, it's another 1.5 hours out. Nice to look around and see the small towns then the scenery as you get closer. Our site was very nice and the loop was well occupied (this was the last week in August). No road noise at all, and you truly feel secluded and out in the wilderness. The park staff was very helpful and friendly. The campground has a sewer dump at the end of the loops, and water spigots and bathrooms were well-placed. The bathrooms were clean. We visited the beach area which is just a short hike from either of the loops. The best part of the trip was the hiking. We took the Brook trail up to beautiful Tumbledown Pond and had lunch there. We also took a drive out to nearby Smalls Falls on the second day. - NTL1991

Clearly a Gem! Huge park with multitude of activities for families and campers of all types. Super helpful Park employees who gave us extra info on hiking and maps of the region. Very pretty lakeshore with lifeguard, places to picnic and stretch out on clean, pet-free, grass. Our space was fabulous - very clean, nice table and good fireplace with a grill. Can't wait to return in the Fall when the leaves turn. - pakngo

Very nice owner's and host staff, restaurant and small supply store. Beautiful lake access with a dock for boats and visiting boats. Mostly outdated playground for kids but the lake is the main draw with a jump float and nice clean beach. Steady 30a power and decent pricing with flexible staff. We extended our stay by a half day and they charged me only $6. Now I have to be honest and list the bad - the access road is terrible and nearly 3/4 of a mile long with steep rises and falls, some overhanging tree limbs and rutted areas. Also, the sites are tight tight tight. This is NOT a place for anyone towing something longer then a 34' trailer of any type. The roads are narrow and people park their cars into the the road, I am still surprised (thanks to my wife spotting objects) that I didn't tear the roof or take out a corner marker. - mwebber78

NOTE: GPS does not recognize Norris Point Road. The correct address is Norris Hill Road which ends at the campground. Small, mostly seasonal campground. Sites can not be booked for less than 7 days until after Memorial Day. Minimal activities: crafts, bingo, weekend horseshoe tournament. The Saturday night we stayed they had a great band. Non seasonal sites are grassy with very little shade. Small store with basics. 6 miles to get to any services. Too many seasonals tear around on golf carts for such a small campground. Lake is beautiful and quite warm for Maine. We probably won't go back. - Everyboysmomma

The park seems to have great potential with the amenities available and area. But a lot of partying, golf carts riding all hours and fast, kids unsupervised in many areas. Owners very hard to reach and not approachable about problems. They are very short tempered when approached and rude. I have read many reviews saying the same thing so probably will find another park in the area. Too bad because it is a great area and may return under new ownership. - HappyCamper866

Check-in smooth, very friendly staff. We were with friends and we were put in what appeared to be the shoulder of the gravel road, in the back section of the campground. They had us set up with our front being in line with their back, felt like it was an overflow area. The roads were narrow. A lot of campers were set up for the season, it appeared. Saw two with "For Rent" signs on them. Only stayed one night. - dtfoster

They are changing over to a Yogi Bear franchise, seem to be making improvements to the sites and roads. Very shady campground, located right outside of town on a main road (stores w/I a few minutes drive). Our site was in the back row, had 2 neighbors several sites away for the first night but after that we were alone, so very private. Though the other campers seemed very aloof and unfriendly, they drove around in gas powered golf carts and no "hi", no waving. The sites are being leveled, though we almost slide off a ledge of gravel and this was our first big scare w/the camper in our 3rd yr of camping. The cable boxes are in the woods every 3 sites, so had to go out an buy 100 ft cable. The pool is huge, we didn't partake in the daily activities as we were out the 2 days there so can't comment on them. Our kids liked biking around and the huge fish in the feeding ponds, can't call it a "fishing pond". The small store was fine, kids liked the arcade.
We saw very little employees, or if they were employees they never introduced themselves or checked on us. The young girl in the office was sweet, but knew nothing about area or the campground its self, and had no means of finding us information. Asked about nearby fishing at the 20 lakes in a 30 mile radius, she knew nothing. Finally a local gave us directions to a hidden boat launch nearby w/a little beach, was perfect for kids to caught small pumpkin fish and pikes. An older lady at the desk was more helpful but only saw her the last day. The location is good, the KOA is so far out of town would not consider that. Maybe in a few years will try here again. - K S
