We've stayed at this campground many times over the past dozen years. We camped in tent, VW Westfalia, back to tent, and now a Roadtrek. We are pleased with the improvements we've noticed this year. New sites have beautiful views of marsh. Other sites have been expanded, cleaned. Tent sites around 5,6,7 are still undesirable. We like the loop (site H!) and the RV sites (stayed in 61 and 64 this trip).

Pool is always clean, beautiful view. Laundry facilities are convenient. Bathrooms (3 stalls, 3 coin showers) are generally clean. Super convenient to Drake's Island Beach. Many restaurants and grocery store nearby. Very strict quiet hours, which we appreciate. No excessive noise at any time - again, much appreciated. E/W/Sewer/Cable $65/night (only site available, typically we don't worry about sewer or cable). E/W are $55/night. We camped at Ocean View Cottages in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Be sure to grab a meal at Fisherman's Catch! Best seafood around. Walking distance (for those who like to walk) from campground. Drake's Island Beach is $20/day for car parking. RV parking (allowed only in overflow lot) is $30/day. Get there early during peak season/days! Parking does fill up.

This was our first time camping in Maine and we were told by repeat visitors that the price and services are excellent considering the very high prices in Old Orchard and neighboring areas. From our experience elsewhere, the site assigned for our trailer was rather hard to access and we were worried about the tight path bordered by trees. With a lot of sweat and help from friends, we made it through and were able to park it. Great facilities with a beautiful view of the inlet and ocean In the far distance. Shuffle board and basketball courts were great for the kids. We had friends with us that rented the cottages (3 cottages in all). They were spacious but in need of upgrading, smell of mold and lack of a microwave or BBQ and cooking utensils made it difficult for meals. One cottage had mouse droppings in the drawers! Quiet hours are 24 hours; great if you like to sit around and not talk with your group, play music or have too much fun. Comment from the lady that greeted us regarding "Quebecers being noisy" upon our arrival and being informed that quiet hours applied at all times put a damper on our vacation. They may want to inform larger groups of travelers when booking that noise is not tolerated. We camped at Ocean View Cottages in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Groceries and restaurants within walking distance. There is shuttle bus service and a shuttle boat to get you to the nearby beaches. Parking at Wells Beach is extremely limited so the services are an advantage. Excellent lobster restaurant down the hill from the campground. Lots of traffic along route 1 to get to beaches and tourist spots like the outlets, take the freeway when you can!

Roads were tiny, sites were very poorly laid out. We have a small trailer and did not fit in two of the sites made available to us. The third site was extremely long and narrow and we had to back way in to get to the services. We camped at Ocean View Cottages in a Travel Trailer.

We paid for a site and asked about TV (Sat or Cable) and was told no cable and all trees. Price was very high, sites were very small. The one we got was too small for our 35' class A. I asked the manager about a good place for steak/lobster. He huffed and said, "I won't eat around here!" Well, we had a heck of a time getting wedged into the site and I am pretty good at backing. There was NO TV signals even by antenna. It appeared that they catered to tenters (OK by me) but the place was dirty and not really camping friendly. I went to the office and complained about lack of TV. The manager said, "this is a campground, not your home." We asked for a refund which we got after a hassle. We camped at Ocean View Cottages in a Motorhome.
