Sep 2012 - $18.00
Passport America rate is $18 + 7% sales tax. Campground is run down. However, campground is out in woods and quiet. It is close to Maine coast for sightseeing and shopping. Manager pleasant. Rating of 5 due to run down state. About 1/2 mile drive in on dirt bumpy road. We stayed a week. Would stay here again for price and convenience. - Peter K

Rate reflects Passport America discount. In general facilities are in disrepair. One building falling down and one (had indoor pool I think) had big tarp on roof and signs that roof failing. Isolated and quiet are the best things I can say. Entry road was dirt and very long and VERY narrow with MANY potholes. Door to what I think was laundry had door knob removed and would not open. Would not stay here again. - ctpres

A beautiful riverside, wooded setting. Somewhat tired grounds with rough, potholed entry road. Electric hookups are somewhat shaky. Blew a circuit breaker making dinner and no one seemed to know how to reset it. Nice enough management. Would stay here again though, for the setting alone. PPA rate. - IslandBob

Extremely clean campground. Showers and park are kept up well. Lots of activities within the campground and surrounding areas. You can walk to the beach from the campground. They upgraded a section of the park this year and added sewer and cable hookups. - Rx for relaxation

Crazy expensive park and we weren't even on the water. The sites are CLOSE together.....like you can count the pores on the person's face in the next RV close. The picnic table it unusable unless you pull it in front of the RV because it is literally right next to the neighbor's sewer. There is no view of the water because of all the RVs that are packed into the sites on the water. I looked at their website and it looked like there was more room, but trust me, they pack this place like sardines. The staff is nice enough. There is no place to walk your dogs, so we had to load them into the car to find trails elsewhere. It's really small and really tight. We would not stay here again, it's just not worth the money. - scubajoe

Location is the only reason to spend $100 for an oceanfront site - we were at the edge of a bluff overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Right there!! The sites are very close together, but with the vast ocean and beautiful coastline views, we did not complain. The owners and their son couldn't have been nicer...and this was the last few days of the season. Wifi was strong, no issues there. Full hookups. - alm

Traveling in a 38 foot coach we stayed 4 nights in a site for big rigs (site 82). On their website they call this site a "pull-thru" site. But all the middle sites are back-in sites as there's a site directly behind. This park was crowded and mostly filled with full-timers. The sites in our area were dirt/grass and were very level. Unfortunately, the middle sites are cramped together with barely enough room to extend sliders and awnings. On the outside loop of the park are full-time residents, these sites are well-kept and clean. We didn't have a fire pit or a picnic table at our site. The park has really strict dog walking rules which I don't blame them...seeing as how some dog owners don't think they need to pick-up after their pets. Also, quiet time is strictly enforced. When I mentioned we'd need to leave at 7:30 am the next morning we were told that we could not leave that early as quiet-time didn't end until 8:00 am. If that's a problem, (and it was for us) don't stay here. It is their park and because there are only two RV parks in the entire area, they can do whatever they want. Although the owners were nice enough...I really can't recommend staying at this park because of this policy. - JDC10

10.00 a day for our small dog..was not told this until we parked our camper and went into office to pay balance. On top of that.. you take your dog outside of park and potty along side busy road or over in overflow parking area...they are nice people BUT cater to seasonal.. they should make it all seasonal . The sites were so damn close. We couldn't open up one awning. And couldn't sit between trailers for the smell from sewers. - TheRealMcCoys

This is a seasonal/full time resident park with few transient customers. Site had level issues, grass site they had a 2x12 ramp on the grass on the low side of the site. Utilities are at the rear of the space, water on the wrong side(passenger), the sewer connection too high off the ground. Sites are very tight, so much that the unit next to me had a petty b.s. complaint about my sewer hose laying on the outside of my sewer connection, which was "his space". There are no showers/bathrooms here, no activities other than scheduled games nights (board type games), no dog run with rules prohibiting walking dogs within the park, trees too thick for satellite, and WAY overpriced at $62 per night just for the ability to walk to the beach. The owners are very nice, but the park needs work. We would not stay here again. - rvrrat520

We camped in a motorhome. This was a stop on the way to a convention so necessary to dump tanks and fill with water. Staff was very friendly. Sites were grass with little distinction between the sites. Camp is situated on river with marshy area nearby. Whole camp was wet, perhaps from recent rain. Lots of mosquitoes so hard to enjoy being outside. One of two washers was being repaired (things happen) so did laundry in town. Lots of seasonal campers. No patio or designated patio area. - Al Z

This was an interesting place. Mostly seasonal who are responsible for cutting their own grass I guess because we heard plenty on lawnmovers and other sites were in need of a cutting. Place is quiet and many campers were inside by 9:00. We did not find it to be very buggy, just a little once it got dark. Views of the river were nice but you do get a smell of marsh at low tide. Staff was nice and were most of the campers. We found this campground to be very boring. Partly because it was small so walking it took no time at all and partly because there was nothing to do in the campground or the area. We did use the pool one day which was nice but it could have been a little cleaner. Not sure if we will return. - Happy Camper X2

Stayed recently, and definitely will not return. The mosquito problem is so significant that you almost can't leave your tent/RV -both day and night, and beyond the typical dusk/dawn mosquito feeding times. Took the dog for a walk at 8am in bright sunshine and we were both attacked by swarms of mosquitos - literally dozens. Off repellent with 30% deet was only marginally effective, and we could not sit by the fire due to the sheer volume of mosquitos.
Campground was clean, with good level sites for tents. The small staff was accommodating, friendly, and helpful, but we were prisoners inside our tent most of the time due the the mosquito problem. We were also sold firewood on-site that still needed a good month to dry/season and would barely light. This may be a good campground for the seasonal camper who owns a boat, due to boat ramp (but in water that you cannot swim in), but beyond that, there are far better choices out there. The owners really need to treat the campground for mosquitos and deal with this significant problem. In 20 years of camping, we have never seen such a significant mosquito issue. - Mr Joe P

Another Labor Day weekend and another great time. I guess many do not leave reviews for Old Stage so I will leave another. We had a wonderful time here again in our favorite spot. Sat at the fire enjoying movies and the DJ and all the kids playing, it is so much fun. As always the owners were great hosts and the other campers were as friendly as ever. This year most of our group enjoyed the hayride as I watched unable to participate. This campground is becoming special to us and I will enjoy our return next year. - Happy Camper X2

Another great Labor Day weekend. I guess I could copy and paste the review from last year. Really enjoyed sitting at the fire listening to the DJ. This year we had 4 sites but there was a mix up on our sons site, not sure if it was our son's mistake or the campgrounds but they did everything possible to fix it which they did and they made sure they were taken care of which was great, we really enjoy everything about this campground. We had a lot of rain on Sunday but the owners had some back up plans and were able to entertain the kids which was nice. The wifi is weak but in the end, we do not camp to use the wifi... We are booked for next year already in our favorite site. - Happy Camper X2

Just home from a nice Labor Day weekend. We like the campground more every time we go. The owners are very friendly as are the seasonal campers. It was fun to see so many kids out running around, riding bikes and playing basketball. From our site we could enjoy listening to the DJ while sitting by the fire. We found the evenings to be mostly quiet especially for a holiday. We have booked for next year already. Wifi was good at the start of the weekend but would kick us off often as the weekend went on. Our site was a pull through which worked out great and was a good size for us. - Happy Camper X2

Camped here in 40 foot coach, towing. Small, cramped camping spots. Wood shavings on wet dirt didn't prevent wheels from digging in when trying to back in to our site. Very treed campground. Power, water worked fine. Hosts very friendly. Cash only. Great location to access the wonderful Maine coastline towns quickly. So, while it wasn't the greatest campground, the price was reasonable compared to other RV parks in the same area. Especially if it's just a place to set up base, and be gone touring all day. - Txgranni

Good location within walking distance of town and Short Sands Beach. The people running the park could not be nicer or more helpful and everyone was friendly. The sites were very close and many of them were not very level. Roads are gravel and well maintained. The sites were covered with wood chips which were kind of soft when it rained. All in all not bad and we will come again. - Bosn

We had a great time. Very clean. Owners were very nice and helpful. Everything is in walking distance. Great campground! If your looking for a "resort" where you need constant activity this might not be for you. This is an actual CAMPGROUND!
Family bonding, campfires and the great outdoors. - Tsadm

The owners go overboard to see that you are satisfied and will do their best to make you comfortable. When we first arrived after a long dusty road we were assigned a campsite along the river. We hadn't paid yet, the owners would be by later to collect. The campsite was dirt and very crowded. We were very close to our neighbors in a run down trailer. Looked like the neighborhood had been there for years. We were ready to pull out and go somewhere else. The owner showed up and moved us to another campsite with more space and grass. We stayed for our two week commitment.
The campground is occupied by a majority of seasonal people who are friendly and very helpful. We enjoyed meeting them. The pool is very nice and clean. The river is dirty and the launch site is muddy, not a good place for your kayak. The electric service would go off for short periods of time and the voltage would drop. WIFI is available only at the store, no AT&T, no cable TV and too many trees for satellite service. Lowes, Walmart and groceries are near by. - Nautilus

This really isn't a very nice campground. I would have to consider it more of a trailer park for RVs. Most of the park is occupied by seasonal or full timers. The infrastructure is lacking in that the power lines are strung randomly around the trees, some of the water lines are just 1/2" abs lines strung around on the ground, and the sewer lines are pvc with some of it above ground. It's either very dusty or very muddy. There are mosquitoes aplenty with all of the standing water around the campground. The river is really not very inviting either as it moves very slowly and retains a yellowish color from the vegetation.
I do have to say that the two women that own the park are very pleasant to deal with but I'm afraid that's about the only positive attribute I can give the park. We spent a week here and would have gone someplace else but it looked like some of the other campgrounds in the area could have been similar so we stayed put. - hoppers4

We stayed here for a month. We were in between homes and decided to use our fifth wheel to stay comfortable. The owners of the park are two sisters. They are very, very nice and helpful. The family helps out with the campground and they keep it safe and clean. Our site was HUGE, very close to park and river. My two boys enjoyed their stay. Pet friendly and families have plenty to keep busy. They are really do a good job with activities. The seasonal campers were great!! I felt very welcomed and we will go back! - LisaC

We are staying for the first time as seasonal campers in a travel trailer. This is a family campground on the Lamprey River. It has a small sandy beach area, but no lifeguard. They have canoes and kayaks for camper use at no charge, which is great. They have a a playground, a rec room with pool and ping pong and games for the kids. There is also a dog park area. Folks have been very friendly and the campground is well maintained. The seasonal rates are excellent and very accessible to metro Boston. - bishoppe11

A seasonal campground with daily, weekly, monthly, and seasonal rates. Dirt roads are a little rough in spots so go slow. Some gravel sites, most are fairly level, 50 amp for larger rigs. The family is in the process of revamping the entire camp so it is in transition but still a great place for kids to ride bikes and swim/kayak/tube along the river. The sites along the river only fit tents, the upper section could fit some bigger rigs and a few on the lower area could fit up to a 45 foot. They have sewer tanks that they pump out and a dump site by the entrance. It is a family run campground, friendly and vintage but clean. They have horse shoe pits, tether ball, a small rec center with a pool table, grocery stores and restaurants are a short drive. We stayed for over a month and enjoyed the friendly atmosphere. - PERRELLAS
