This is an average Canadian campground. All grass parking. Narrow roads but no real problem with our 40'. Wi-Fi is only in a hot spot quite a way from most campsites. Pool looked nice but didn't use. Restrooms very dated but clean. Very low water pressure--had to fill fresh tank and use the water pump to shower. I like the park-like setting. I would stay again on an overnight basis if in the area. - jeffnbarb

Don't miss this one if you are traveling between Edmundston and Grand Falls in New Brunswick. Easy on and off the Trans Canada, but noise is buffered by trees. Very quiet and private, delightful park and hosts who are fluently bilingual and are RV'ers themselves. Sites are grass, long level pull throughs, and very spacious. The grounds are park like, well maintained, with a walking path along the river. There are trees, but not any that will interfere, just enough to be pleasant. Wi-Fi is in a building near the pool. Pets are allowed, but must be kept on a leash. Price is Passport America rate. - D and M

This park is rectangular with full time summer residents in the center of the campground and the rest of us on the perimeter. The grounds are surrounded by farm fields which is pleasant and quiet. Unfortunately a thunder storm preceded us so the perimeter sites were muddy, we couldn't walk to the lake due to downed branches, the wifi was not functioning, and the insects were abundant. The worst part was the cold showers on a frosty morning; the French word for cold is froid which is pronounced "fwaaaaaaaah!!!!!" We enjoyed the company of fellow travelers mostly from Ontario. Bring bug spray! - barkingbear

We relied on our Garmin RV GPS in our Class A with toad and were a bit concerned at times, what with many turns within the town, but we were reassured by several "camping" signs. Then we got to a chain link fence with a campground sign - do we turn right around the church (is that even a road?), or do we go thru the gate and plunge down the steepest driveway to a campground below? Always up for an adventure, we took the plunge-it was the park! But then the road forked, and both sides had BIG arrows pointing toward us painted on the drives! We stopped to debate what to do. Looking thru the parked RVs toward the office on the other side, we saw two people emerge watching us. Eventually one waved us to the right, so ahead we went. The attendant was super helpful, knows his park inside out, and fun. He gave us the option of back-in or pull-thru; he showed us the short pull-thru first and we chose it (fit our 40' fine; he says he's put 44' in there, and I imagine it would fit, just barely). It was fairly level and completely shaded (as are all the sites in the small park). All the sites in the middle are at odd angles, giving just enough space for benches and, in our case, to not feel it's too tight. But the sites are very close to each other. 30 amp electric was clean. Water 40 psi and good taste. Verizon data and cell worked well. We never saw a pool or playground, as some have checked off as available - but we didn't look either (seems too small to us to have them). The park was clean, but some people don't pick up after their dogs. Disgusting to accidentally step in! Hiking trail will take you to the falls, about a 20 minute walk, we were told. We can't do that, and were not sure we found them when we did drive. I suspect the dam above has diminished them considerably, from what we did see. - ragtop45

It's a small but clean and wonderfully located park. The showers were the largest and best we have ever seen. A 10-15 minute walk to town along a path that follows the gorge and leads to the falls. What a gem and serendipitous stop on our way to Quebec City!! - Dc22

This is a charming little city run campground right on the edge of a 250 foot deep gorge at the headwaters of the St John River. Sites are close together but are cut into the woods in an absolutely park-like setting. Only a few sites will accommodate big rigs, but the ones that will are level and well grassed. Sat TV reception would be iffy due to trees. Bring a DVD. Relaxation is the main selling point here. We will definitely stay here again. - Alworth

Nice quiet park right on a lake. Over 50 sites but never saw more than 10 campsites occupied. The park just joined the KOA network and is currently converting to KOA. Formerly called Watersedge RV. Very friendly people. Has three pull throughs and there was always at least one available. Park has full hookups, 30 and 50 amps as well as a couple tent sites, boat, kayak rental, laundry and sleeper cabins. Watch out for moose. It is very, very common to see moose crossing the road right near the park every morning and evening. - globemaster

Because of the last posting on this site we chose to come here. We are very happy we did. Large sites, good big rig access, washing the coach and toad is okay, satellite friendly, good water and power. A true northwoods experience. The lake is very pretty and does not reflect its name - Mud Lake. General store in the area is well stocked as is the local farmer's stand. This is a great place to spend a few days or weeks. For families it seems fine with swimming in the lake being a favorite. We hope to return soon. - grids

This is a beautiful little park with nice sized sites. Like many Canadian parks there are a lot of seasonal campers. These folks really keep their rigs looking nice. We would have stayed additional nights if we had time. - USA in a Chevrolet

Stopped for the night at this campground and used the Passport America pricing. At $20/night it is priced correctly but would think twice about staying at their full rate price ($40/night is a little steep for this campground in our opinion).
A small campground with seasonal campers and overnight sites. Pull-through (2 way service) and back-in sites (3 way service). Campground is well maintained and clean. Ample sized grassy sites, with some trees. Noticed there was a pool onsite but it wasn't ready for swimmers (no water in it) but we visited in mid June so the season was just starting up in the area. - Canadian Travellers

Stayed overnight on the way to PEI but would certainly stay again for longer and would recommend this campsite to others.
The owner/managers were very pleasant and helpful and allowed me to print off a large number of personal documents on the office printer without charge.
Our pull through site was level and grassy with lots of room and the water pressure was fine. - 2onthemove

This is one of the northernmost campgrounds in Maine that has direct access to the multitude of ATV/UTV trails. Its a beautiful spot overlooking the lake. Friendly, helpful staff. Good food & drinks at the the on-site restaurant. - User1684

Sites very large, arranged so sewer sites together (one rig facing in, one out); large covered area for campers' use; would have given a 10 rating except for check-in which is done in bar area of restaurant & restaurant VERY busy! Should have a special check-in site for campers. The restaurant food is very good & reasonably priced.
Sites 100 and up are new, facing the lake, high on hill. Beautiful sites but must be in even number if a MH, to face in right direction. Cable not in place yet in this area but in the works; good WiFi. Must be careful with phone...may connect to Canada service so keep 'roaming' off. Only complaint is of check-in service. - Mainiac

Many seasonal sites - they have the best views. Ours was OK but not very level. Wifi & cable good. Sewer hook up ran uphill. Registering was different - had to go into restaurant and find someone. - padre

It is funny how different reviews can be. I went back to make sure I was reviewing the same park! Beautiful shaded to open park. We stayed in a 30a full hook up. A little odd the 50a in the part that's open weren't full hook up, but OK. Great water pressure. Good wifi with park about 60%, wonderful almost empty. The camp hosts, that accept payment (cash or check) and, take you to your site, and assist with back-in... were friendly and wonderful. We were at the end of the small park, site 14, VERY level. These sites are on the small side, but we set up our clam at the end, very open nice view. Our site backed up to an manicured open area about the size of a small soccer field. The park was spotless. The park was quiet. There was an occasional train rumble, but muffled and distanced, we enjoy that sound. We absolutely recommend and will be back on the next Canada trip!!! We rated a 9, however, we love nature, don't care for the "resort" type park. We bring all the amenities we need. - Texanmark

The park is a nice location for an overnight stop when traveling E-W along the southern part of Canada. The park, however, is worth avoiding. The majority of the sites do not have sewer and even when you do, they do not allow you to do laundry in your RV. The sites are gravel and very long with many trees providing shade for the area. The water pressure is so low that we had to take showers with our pump and fresh water tank. They advertise wifi, but it did not work at all even with most of the sites empty. We would recommend avoiding this campground. See our updates, reviews and pictures at our blog at thegilliamsisland. - Gary Gilliam

Clean park and hosts were friendly. We were put at far end of campsite in an non-level spot where there is no wifi. Campground was not full and did not have to be put at far end. Poor placement for us - Mike Collins
