Big Eddy's CG is a primitive campground situated on the Penobscot River. There are several water spigots to fill up with water and there is electricity in the office if you need to charge up your phone. Also, the office has wifi so you can check your email or receive text messages. There are two showers available for use and cost $1.50. The fishing on Penobscot River is excellent and I learned how to fly fish during my stay. There is excellent hiking all around as well. The Golden Road is a rough road whether you are coming from Greenville or Millinocket, so please take your time and make sure you have all of your provisions as you don't want to venture down this road more than you have to. I will have to say I was more relaxed at this campground than I have been in a long time, I finished five books during my two-week stay. There are books and puzzles you may borrow in the office, along with organic coffee for purchase every morning. Firewood is also available for purchase. We camped at Big Eddy Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

The drive on Golden Road isn't golden. Take your time and make sure you have everything you need during your stay, you don't want to venture down the road more than necessary.

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 at Big Eddy Campground 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 at Big Eddy Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
