“Lots of campsites, people, children and noise”

Reviewed Jun 30, 2015

Overall Rating

I want to like this campground, but it is not our idea of a relaxing peaceful camping experience. Unsuspecting first timers who don't know where to camp are going to be subjected to very loud music three nights a week for three or more hours. Luckily we were on Loon Point and barely heard the music. If you camp along Turtle Bay for a bit, and perhaps around the Athletic Field you will hear less of the music. But all the remaining campsites, about two-thirds of the campground is subjected to the noise/music. They have a DJ and live music Thursday - Saturday in the season. The quiet hour doesn't start until 10:30. In spite of this there are a fair number of seasonal campers and people who want to come here.

Most of the sites are wooded, but some sites are not shaded along the water or near the athletic field. The sites along the water tend to be very close together. You need to pick your site carefully. We had a nice site that had water views and was away from the music.

They allow a lot of people on one site, so depending on how close your neighbors are it could be noisy. This place is very popular with young people and families with children, because it is an RV resort with lots of amenities - pool, hot tub, game room, miniature golf, entertainment, beach, boats, etc. Parents allow their children to roam the campground and often children are riding bikes after dark, which makes it a bit of a challenge to take a walk in the evening.

The lake is a narrow finger about six miles long which provides a variety of places to paddle. It probably could be rather busy on the weekend with boat traffic. The lake is rather shallow and rocky in spots, so it you bring a boat with a motor, be very careful. Paddling may be a better option or bring a boat with a small motor.

Wifi is in a central location - the dance hall where they play music, so not a very inviting spot in the evening. We had okay cell at our site, but I am sure it varies from place to place in the campground.

You are several miles off of Route 1, but near to the lovely town of Damariscotta, shops, gas stations restaurants, and other wonderful places to visit - Pemaquid Light House, Coastal Botanical Gardens, Moody's Diner, Morse's Kraut House, sea kayaking, Bath and Brunswick.
