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

Clean campground on the Kennebec River. Gravel roads, fairly roomy, level grass sites with large shade trees. Some pull-through sites, and some sites along the river. Pool and two docks for fishing, and enough green space to walk my dogs. Cable TV and good WiFi; Walmart and large grocery store nearby. We would stay here again. - FranM

Very nice campground right on the river with free use of water toys such as kayaks and pedal boats. Excellent cable and wifi. Facilities were clean and up to date. Will stay again. - Geodoc

Nice overnight stay. Good cable and WiFi. Friendly staff. Didn't use laundry but like the idea of a laundry in park. - bolljl

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

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

Mt. Blue State Park in Weld, Maine is in the western part of the state with mountains around it. The drive is interesting to get there, but follow the signs as well as a GPS. This is the third time we have camped here, but have not been back in over ten years. The camping sites are located in three loops all within a short hike to Webb Lake where one can boat, fish, swim, picnic and hike. There are 136 campsites – some are huge in loop two and three, but one should check out their site for low hanging branches, but there are sites for big rigs. The roads around the loops are small and narrow though. Since it was a Sunday night and in September we were able grab a host site right next to their new bathroom and shower complex. The pit toilets are still around the campground, but this new complex is very nice and clean. There is no electric or water hookups, but most of the sites are quite private. Plenty of hiking trails, and the lake is beautiful! It is a good stopover and a quiet place to spend a night or two when traveling. Others like to come up for a week or two during the summer for the cool nights, and many come to see the fall colors in early and late fall. They do take reservations now for the summer months, and after the middle 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 at their parks, but with the drop in price it cost us $18 plus $1.26 tax for a night and that is without services. - gsnakehill

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

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

This is a great campground. The owners are on site and very helpful. The restrooms are spotless and appear to be really cleaned about every 4 hours. The site was level with central hook ups. We could not get wifi at our site but no problem near the office. AT & T phones had spotty connections. - Al and Anne-Marie

More community than campground! Friendly owners have been running it for 35 years, and with the loyal repeat business they are obviously doing something right. We arrived just in time for the July 4th parade, bingo on Fridays and lots of other activities. And yet, so quiet at night you could hear a pin drop. Lots of birds. One evening another camper brought us firewood as a "welcome" - we've never had that before! We stayed here because it is close to Bigelow hiking, but it wouldn't be a bad spot to just camp and relax either. Verizon mifi worked just OK and cell had problems. Not surprisingly, no T-Mobile service. Very well maintained, lots of tall pines with pine needle flooring. Interior roads were easy to navigate, no low branches with the tall pines. - Roaming Together

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

Service at the Office was sketchy. Sometimes they were there, other times not. They couldn't find our reservation and had to call the owner at home to get the ok. Our site was quite uneven and the sewer inlet was up higher than our trailer outlet. Cable hookup was available but didn't work. If someone visits for any length of time...it's $5 per person. I'm an older guy and my son stopped by to help me hook up...$5. the park is situated on a pretty pond, that's a plus. - MCHug

All hookups worked fine. We were thankful for the cable since our satellite tv didn't work. The park could use a little extra TLC as it has a run down tired look. The bathrooms needed cleaning. There were cob webs that needed to be brushed away from last year and a coat of paint wouldn't hurt. Our GPS registered a 42% downgrade coming into the park. For some reason, they kept blocking the road as you entered (probably to stop people coming in too fast). A fox then a skunk lived (or died?) under the office making it smell so bad the managers couldn't even work there. The laundry room had two of four dryers broken and only two washers. They worked well but were also housed in the stinky office building. - Melodycthomas

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

Old smaller campground but buildings and landscape in good condition. Staff was very friendly and very helpful. Approximately 60 percent are permanent campers. Campground is right on the lake but most water view sites are taken by permanent campers. They do rent canoes and kayaks and would be a good place for fishing. Campground has some shaded areas and very limited number of 50 amp and a few long pull thru sites. Campground road had horrible potholes on road into camp. They did drag the road before we left which made the road bearable. We camped here because it was a good Sam Park but campground would not give the 10% discount unless you paid in cash. Never experienced this from a Good Sam park. - fulltimehusker
