The park is for 55 and older. Spots close, but no noise what so ever. Close to portland and Scarborough with restaurants and other venues. Management extremely helpful. Tall Trees abound in the park. We camped at Wild Duck Campground & RV Park (Adult Only) in a Travel Trailer.

This is a very nice spot to stay when visiting Portland, ME. The campground is quiet, clean and all hook ups work well. Some might find it tight, but we got our 35" class A in a pull through spot with no problem. There were a couple of 42-45 footers here as well. There are a few permanent sites around the edge, but all well kept and very quiet as well. Someone mentioned mosquitos, but we didn't have any. I didn't try our DirecTV as the park is nicely shaded but we got 17 over the air channels. They have cable-tv, but we didn't try it. All in all, a very good park. We camped at Wild Duck Campground & RV Park (Adult Only) in a Motorhome.

Downtown is just under 20 minutes away. Take a city tour of Portland first. Book it ahead of time for the first morning of your stay. Then you can pick out things of more interest to you for the rest of your stay. We took the Portland Explorer 2 hour tour and it was well worth it.

Heavily wooded, we could not use our direct TV and we have a 100 foot cable with a tripod also. They do have good cable but we like our satellite. Mosquitos were REALLY bad. Pull thru sites were very close together. Very quiet, good kayaking and bike riding and hiking close by. Plenty of shopping/eating very close, beach very close. Sewer was uphill I had to build a pain in the butt ramp to get it to drain. We camped at Wild Duck Campground & RV Park (Adult Only) in a Fifth Wheel.

If you are looking for peace and quiet during your vacation time. You need to come to the wild duck camp. It is small, quiet and clean. Owners are great people and very helpful. No kids allowed here. Campground is for adults only. Bathhouse, bathrooms and laundry very clean. We camped at Wild Duck Campground & RV Park (Adult Only) in a Travel Trailer.

Great location, nice mix of long term and shorter stay residents, beautiful facilities, well cared for. Can’t say enough about how lovely this park was. We had a site that backed onto the Salt Marsh and watched heron’s searching for dinner. The care the owners have for this park is evident in both large and small details, and they were helpful and lovely to talk with. We would happily camp here again! Although the lots are relatively close, there is plenty of shrubbery and trees to give you a sense of privacy. We camped at Wild Duck Campground & RV Park (Adult Only) in a Travel Trailer.

Walking distance to an Ace Hardware, a good ice cream store (the dairy corner), a fancy grocery (on the vine market) and a small shop that is a bakery and fishmonger that had the best lobster roll of our trip (pine tree seafood and produce).

Of all the places we have stayed in the lower 48 states this park deserves more than 5 stars. Immaculately clean from the showers, laundry and to even the sites! Fire rings clean, sites raked, garbage and recycling for can/bottles in separate cans. A pristine location with quiet which makes you thing about do you really need the cable tv which is available. Sites for big rigs, pop ups and beautiful tent site too. All on a salt marsh here bird watching is premo. You will be close to Old Orchard Beach, can use your bike, kayak and just enjoy life at its best. You are off the main road, gated park after hours with gate code, but close to Old Orchard, Scarborough, Rt 1 and Portland an easy ride. Many places for eating and shopping within a short ride. Park has DRY' firewood available, owner wants you to enjoy your stay. A personal touch for sure. There are full time seasonal people here, very friendly and helpful. Work campers too. They make you feel like family. Here for 3 nights and looking forward to coming back next weekend! We camped at Wild Duck Campground & RV Park (Adult Only) in a Motorhome.

We stayed one night as we headed South from Canada. Navigation of roads was a bit tight with 3500 GMC and 32 ft 5'er. Our 32ft 5th wheel was a tight fit for the campsite. Be prepared to back in with some close trees nearby. Lots of helpful folks to assist in getting it placed. Appears to be a very popular seasonal campground with many folks returning year after year. Positioned by a body of water that is beautiful. No issues with check-in. I'd stay there again. We camped at Wild Duck Campground & RV Park (Adult Only) in a Fifth Wheel.

An adults only campground. My first impression was that the sites were too close together. The pull through sites are very close together. The back in sites, however, have decent separation, although there are a lot of campsites on a small plot of land. The sites are mostly dirt. About half of the fairly small campground is seasonal. The seasonal is on one side and the transient is on the other. All of the back in sites have views of a slough. Pull through sites have views of other pull through sites. Our site was dirt. Not sure I would have been happy in the rain, but it didn't rain while we were there, so I don't know. Everything, absolutely everything, was perfectly maintained and spotlessly clean. The site had been raked before we got there. That was a first for us. Our first impression wasn't all that great because of site spacing, but the place grew on us because of the cleanliness and maintenance. We camped at Wild Duck Campground & RV Park (Adult Only) in a Motorhome.

We've been camping here for years but this was our first seasonal stay. The campground is exceptionally clean and well maintained, the owners work very hard to make improvements and ensure their campers are happy. The ducks are adorable We camped at Wild Duck Campground & RV Park (Adult Only) in a Travel Trailer.

Traveling in a 38 foot coach we stayed 6 nights in a site for big rigs. This park is adults only. The site we had was level but like most sites in our area it lacked gravel on the dirt pad. The park has new owners and they have been adding gravel to many of the sites. I compliment them for the great improvements they are undertaking and all the work they've done so far. There are a lot of full-time residents in this park and their sites are well kept and clean. Our satellite did not work here (to many large trees to get reception). If you have a dog there is ample area to walk. If you are looking for a quiet and clean park where you can sit outside and relax... go here. We enjoyed our stay, and would go back.

This is a nice well-maintained park. It is quite obvious that the owners take pride in their campground and work hard to keep it up. They have full utilities, wifi, ($1/day and they gave us a couple of days free), good cell coverage, cable TV, and our site was a flat dirt back-in site that had been freshly raked. We had two complaints, one of which was out of their control. During our stay at the end of July the mosquitoes were fierce. We really couldn't go out without spraying or fully covering our arms and legs. Very annoying and I would not go back during mosquito season. Our other complaint is the two narrow drainage ditches that cross the entry road and rack your truck, car or trailer every time you go in or out; that got old immediately. Also, the campground has a lot of trees and satellite reception is virtually impossible. We tried and tried with our portable because we wanted to watch Tour de France (we ended up watching it live on their cable TV). We found this a good base for exploring the Portland area.

If you're looking for a place to stay that is quiet, this is an excellent choice. This is an adults only campground so there were no children running around. It is a very small campground with no extra activities offered other than camping and canoeing in the marshy area next to the campground. We have a 45' motorhome and had no trouble getting here. The campground itself is a little tight to maneuver around in, but it is doable. Paved streets are narrow, but the sites are spread out enough that we could get our motorhome easily into our site which was sandy. The owners are very helpful and will work with you to make sure you have a site that works best for you. We had to get out our old leveling blocks to get ourselves level (our motorhome is a bus conversion that uses air bag leveling rather than leveling jacks). The owner came and saw our problem, and offered to move us to a different site if that would help us. We camped at Wild Duck Campground & RV Park (Adult Only) in a Motorhome.

This is a small, older, but very well kept facility. The staff is continuously cleaning and keeping things orderly. They are very friendly and proud of their CG. This is billed as an "adult" campground so there is nothing here for kids or activities. That being said, it is in a perfect location to visit Portland as well as the Scarborough and Saco area. There's plenty to do and see. It is, however, a crowded area in the summer. As stated elsewhere, the camp roads are paved but narrow. Just be careful. After checking in look up the entrance road over/next to the pond as it is only one vehicle wide. At night the entrance is gated with a key code. Water, sewer, and electric are fine. Other than the big rig pulls through in the middle, most sites back up to the woods or salt marsh. We had a great view of the marsh. It is very, very quiet here. I would definitely stay here again.

It's only a 9 mile trip to Portland. There are two nice state parks close by that are oceanfront joys. Also, visit Portland Head Light. It's spectacular. There are plenty of beaches and beach towns if you like that stuff. Get a lobster roll at "Sea Salt" Restaurant in Scarborough.

Very friendly managers, park is very clean, our site was pretty level. Some sites appear to be more spacious than others. Lovely flowers in bloom not only grounds maintained by campground but in pots from other seasonal campers. Very quiet area away from any main roads, yet also very convenient to Portland and Cape Elizabeth. Interior roads are paved but narrow, bumpy, and rutted - doable if you go slow. We camped between a park model and permanent trailer and backed up to the woods. We would stay here again if we were in the area. Price reflects weekly rate minus tax.
