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

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

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

The entrance road was bumpy and hilly. The ad said cable and WiFi. When I called I asked specific lot about the cable and WiFi. She said oh yes it works. When we parked and payed, we found out it didn’t work. The campers next door said he has been here 1 week and it hasn’t work all week. So she lied to lure us in here. I called the office and she said , oh the last person there must have broke it. My husband will come and fix it, he didn’t and then the office was closed. Problem over for them. The site is very unleveled. Our front wheels are off the ground. - plp1280

Put us in a large back-in FHU site. Water quality seems good; electric good. We have cable but get only Fox News the best. We get some OTA stations as well. Not a large campground; it's laid out in circles that are not easy to drive around with an RV. Lots of annuals and looks like some full timers. Lots of trees and mosquitos. Sits on Webber Pond with docks so you can launch a boat or whatever. There is also swimming in the pond. They have a large tent set up for activities. - Kerch Family

Traveling in a 38 foot coach we stayed 4 nights in a site for big rigs. I urge you to think again about this place! We were four sites from the office and we never picked up their WiFi signal. One time when I was in the office another tenant complained about the WiFi not working. We also complained two times that our cable did not work. They.... NEVER fixed either! This park has a lot of full-time residents and they are trashy and messy! On top of all this, the water pressure was inconsistent with massive fluctuations from low-to-high. Our satellite did not work here (to many large trees to get reception). Today we live in the age of wifi technology and there is nothing to stop this rv park from investing in doing wifi properly. For some users (such as ourselves) wifi is an important feature. We know enough not to count on a good signal over the weekends, but during the weekday there is no excuse! We even had the Wifi-Ranger on our roof with a direct-line-of-sight to their wifi source (the distance was just a stone's throw away). - JDC10

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

$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

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

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
