30 amp, FHU, back-in site. CG is very hilly, roads are very rough and rutted, would hate to see it after a heavy rainfall. CG was about half full of seasonal sites mainly near the lake which seems to be the main attraction here. A few OTA TV signals were available, no WIFI except at the office. At these prices I doubt we would return. - Bob & Stephanie

My site was grass, not too bad as far as side to side level. Up hill sewer run was a challenge. Roads were pretty bad but they were trying to fill in the pot holes. Power was good until they got busy on memorial day weekend. Voltage dropped to 105. Beautiful area. - MissingLinc

Tight turns and a steep hill lead into this tiny park. We were assigned a 30 amp back-in near the office which would have been a very tight fit for our rig. The one remaining staff member (they were closing for the season in a couple of days) suggested we just go down by the lake, take up two sites and enjoy the scenery. Only one other rig came in during our four-night stay. Most of the seasonal rigs were empty; the few remaining people were pulling boats out of the water and closing up for the winter. Water went off briefly due to a leak somewhere in the park. It was quickly restored. While most of the park could use a serious face lift and upgrade, it was peaceful, quiet and scenic. Steep, rutted gravel road and a tight turn made it difficult to get out of the park. - rfmscat

Stayed for 4 days/nights. We had a water site, and it had an awesome view of the lake. No problems with power. No sewer at the lake front sites, but we knew that when we made the reservation. The owner came by and pumped out our holding tank when asked. The pump-out fee was very cheap!
They have an entertainment room that we never visited, but there was often a flurry of children activity during the day.
No problems, and clean facilities. Oh, if you mingle with your neighbors, you might get Lobster for $2.50 a pound.
We would DEFINITELY come back again! Very quiet! - Bob Mac

Owners were really nice. Gave us a site close to the swimming beach and playground. Had our 6 year old granddaughter with us, it was very convenient for her to run over and play. My main complaint with the site is that it was grass, and wet/soggy from recent rains. This made it impossible to use our leveling jacks, even with boards placed underneath. Sites are small, but there was no one in the adjacent sites, so it was okay. - Michigal

Advertised as big rig friendly, it is not. The entry road very rough with pot holes and tight turns with low overhanging trees make access undesirable. The dump station available is on a pull through with a sharp turn and a steep hill on exit. - Northern Star 3934

Lake Pemaquid Campground $30./ no discounts We were quite surprised when we pulled into here. The road into the very woodsy Park is narrow, and signage is poor. We disconnected at what used to be the office and I drove car into the park to the store/check-in office to find directions to our site - a lake front site where we hoped my husband could fish. We found a site that was barely long enough for our 32' RV, and a lake that had so many lilies that fishing was next to impossible, especially with such a shallow depth. The sewer connection was a PVC pipe coming out of the ground at an angle, and above ground level. The electric and water connections were conveniently located at the back of the site. It appears that this campground has a lot going on during the summer season, parties, activities, etc. There seemed to be quite a few seasonal camps set up, with wooden patios, planting's, etc. Our site was in a culdesac and had some shrubbery between us and adjacent sites. As I started thinking about this place, the movie "Dirty Dancing" came to mind. The deeply wooded terrain, rustic wooden buildings and camp-like activities portrayed in the movie. This place was convenient for touring this area of Maine, but it was not an up-to-date, modern environment I was expecting. Lobster can be purchased from a dock at Owl Point Lobster, just before you get to the Owl Point Lighthouse, and my husband said the oysters from Scully's on River Road in Edgecomb were some of the best he's tasted. $1.50 each, but he said it was worth it. - TN Gator

Lake Pemaquid CG is a huge place with many features: beaches, boathouses, a store, playgrounds, etc. It is very family-friendly and there were lots of kids riding around on bikes and playing various games,swimming, eating ice cream, and generally having a good time. The upkeep of the entire facility is so-so. The main paved road is hard to tell from the many dirt roads because the paving is in poor condition. There are lots of trees and some grass but it isn't particularly manicured. The water is lovely and because it isn't the ocean, it is not too cold to swim in.
There are many seasonal campers and they are scattered around in the CG. There are a variety of sites and there's probably one to suit anyone's taste.
There was one area (near us) where a noisy group of seasonal campers seemed to gather every night to have a fire and drink and make way too much noise. This is a beautiful location and probably ideal for families who like outdoor recreation. - virginianola

No services and you must carry your trash out. We stayed in Site 20 right on the lake. This state park is small but very nice. It is about 37 miles east of Augusta right on route 3. There are about ten sites right on the lake and if you have a boat you can tie it right up in front of your site. Restrooms are new like many of the Maine State Parks with individual bathrooms, showers and sink. Nicely done! The State of Maine got a grant to construct these washrooms a couple of years ago and most of their state parks now have really nice ones that are modern. No services here but for an overnight or a week most RV’s can live without it. There is a public picnic area that is very nice with a swimming area next to the campground. Since we were there in September the rates have dropped. We paid as an out of stater $19 but in season it must be close to $25 or higher. It is a good place to stop driving over to Acadia or to stops along the coast! - gsnakehill

To be honest, I have mixed feelings about writing this review, because Sandy Shores is a hidden gem that very few people know about and because I don't want to tell anyone it's here so I can keep it to myself. Let me begin by saying that this is a private Co-op park but some of the individual site owners have opened it to seasonal and monthly renters. The rate shown is the seasonal rate divided by 180 days. The park operates from the beginning of May through the end of October. It's located on South Pond which is an approximate 600 acre fresh water lake. There is a boat ramp and dock. The roads in the park are crushed stone and the sites are large and grassy with plenty of shade trees. There are two bath houses with restrooms that are lightly used and very clean. There are also two clean laundry rooms with very reasonably priced machines. The swimming pool opens as soon as the cool Maine spring permits. You can also play horseshoes, shuffleboard or tennis. There is a clubhouse that contains a full kitchen, a game room and library exchange. Yes, the park abuts a railroad spur. The train comes by about once each week during the day to drop off and pickup 2-3 bulk cars at the concrete plant. It is very quiet here. This is Mid-Coast Maine where there is plenty to see and do. There are a minimum of 6 lighthouses to visit within 1 hour of the park. Any number of state parks close by, 4 miles to groceries and gas, 1.5 miles to a farm stand and fresh fish is everywhere. There is a reason they call this vacation land. Shh, try not to tell anyone... please. - freckles1219

$15 rate represents a $450 monthly rate plus electric. We intended to stay a month, ending up staying for over two. This is a little slice of heaven folks, the wife and I have RV'd over 30 years and this is one of nicest campgrounds and nicest people you will ever meet. The campground is for adults only, no frills for kids which is exactly what we look for. Very clean campground, beautiful landscaping, right on the Kennebec River. I caught several small mouth bass at the dock, sturgeon can be seen jumping out of the river, eagles soaring, very pristine setting. The owners are wonderful people, host regular Friday night dinners, and do a wonderful job of making you feel like this is home. The campground is centrally located, easy enough to get to the coast or to the mountains on day trips. Augusta is 10 minutes to the north, plenty to see. We will definitely return to this park. - JamBus

Rate is weekly rate plus tax. We are staying here for 2 weeks. The park is quiet and seems quite secure. Each vehicle gets a remote to operate the gated entrance. Most of the sites are seasonal but there are a couple sites available. Everybody we have met is quite friendly. Sat at the river yesterday and watched several eagles fishing. We are about 50 feet from railroad tracks but have not seen any train since we got here 5 days ago. Paved rail/trail is beside the tracks. Owner is very friendly and helpful. If space is available here when we are in the area we will stay here again. - User1984

We found this campground thru Passport America and the rate reflects their discount. The owner added 3 new back in sites this year, the other 11 sites are taken by seasonal campers. Our site (13) is wooded, full shade, with a gravel drive and pad. It is a short walk past the other sites to the Kennebec river and marina. This is a great stop for folks traveling to or from Canada or someone with a boat that is lucky enough to get a slip in the marina. - SunnyTravelers

Our all time favorite campground. Perfect if you like quiet and the most beautiful sunrises and night sky ever. Counted 9 satellites in one hour last night. Not really a place for kids although there is a pool and there is no store. WiFi is ok but no tv. Weekly stays minimum but lots to do in the area and plenty of resources nearby in Rockland. - Alan S

My wife and I have been camping for 20 years, starting with tent to pop-up to hybrid and finally graduating to large travel trailer, and most of the joys we have experienced have been in the friendly people we have encountered. However, the Saltwater Farms Campground was, without a doubt, the most unwelcoming and unfriendly campground that we have ever visited. The staff went far beyond being unfriendly -- they were downright rude. In addition, the seasonal campers there acted as though we were intruders. We spent more money to stay at this campground than we have ever spent anywhere, yet we had the most unpleasant experience we've ever had at any campground anywhere.
This all goes beyond the fact that the "amenities" (and I do use this term loosely) were minimal to non-existent. For example, the campground advertises that they have WIFI, however, you'll need some luck on your side to get it to work since it didn't work about 90% of the time. Try not to use your microwave and AC at the same time. Also, we were told that we would probably be able to get 2 over-the-air TV stations, however, again, no such luck. So, notwithstanding having no internet and no television (yet spending $378 to stay here for a week), this still would have been acceptable in a campground that made us feel even a little bit welcome. However, this campground did not.
This is the first campground review we have given, however, we felt compelled to give it this time as this campground was such a major disappointment to say the least. We would not recommend it to anyone who enjoys a friendly atmosphere in a campground. - Washington Hogwallop

We stayed here to attend the nearby Rockland Lobster Festival. Our spot was closest to the river, so our views were great - unobstructed, wide-open views of the river in the distance. WiFi was pretty much unusable. Our AT&T cell service also was marginal (1 or 2 bars of 3G), but that's nothing that the RV park can do anything about. There is a long gravel & dirt access road in and out of the park, which means that our car was always coated in a layer of dust, and the park won't let you wash your rig or car, so you've been warned. No cable TV to my recollection, but we could pull in a couple of stations over-the-air. It was a peaceful setting, just nothing special. - coffeetime
