Campsites are the largest and most private I've ever seen. Fantastic. Good privacy.
Dunno why others are complaining about the 3 rocks as a fire pit. Plenty functional and directs the heat out towards the seating area.
The pool is as good as it looks in the pictures. Your kids will be here every day and love it. The deepest the pool gets is around 4 feet. There are 2 slides and they are pretty well monitored.
The check in staff and the store staff are great. Very helpful. The camp store is pretty well stocked.
The needs improvement:
The café staff are completely incompetent. I went through 3 people to find someone that spoke English. A very basic order of 2 slushies took over 20 minutes and they were both wrong. I watched the same thing happen to the next 4-5 families while my kids drank their slushies. It has a ton of potential but terrible execution. I tried again a day or two later and bought some lunch, it took an hour and the order was wrong.
The playlist at the pool area seems to alternate between Jimmy buffett / Bob marley (great!) and a 5 year old's sunday school religious kid songs (wth??). Super annoying. Combine that with the pamphlets handed out at check-in, it's a little preachy. Save that for church, I'm here to camp, Thank you.
Point Sebago fills a niche that makes it my favorite place to go.
It is full of family activities happening all throughout the day and separated by age group, which makes it easy for everyone in the family to have something they want to do.
I hesitate to call this a campground because this is kind of a resort that offers camp sites and camp houses instead of a hotel.
The key draw to this place for me is Sebago lake, which connects to Long Lake, and is some of the best boating I've done. The water is clean and clear, the state park has a great beach, as well as some nice sandbars and beaches elsewhere on the lakes.
To be clear: If you like to camp at state parks, traditional campgrounds, the normal camping experience, this may be too built up for you. As this is a large resort with a golf course attached, there are golf carts everywhere. Probably 75%+ of the sites are camphomes, which are single wide 2 bedroom rentable cabins. I'd love to see a few of these go away and it transition to more RV sites.
We enjoyed this campground. It has a few bumps and bruises that could be improved but overall it was a safe place with lots of families.
It appeared to be mostly seasonal / long term campers and people that had developed good relationships with their neighbors. Everyone was friendly and helpful.
Most of the campsites seem to have an open area in the middle between them that allows for maneuvering and socializing.
The camp store is small but well stocked and the prices are very good.
The beachfront is nice, the canoe and kayak rental is reasonable.
Electrical at my campsite could use a little work.
The sewer on my site overflowed after only ~15-20 gallons of dumping.
The swimming area has a 'icky bottom' (kid term :))
The entrance / office setup is confusing. If you come in from the West you'll see an entrance, if you pull in you'll then be able to see signs that tell you to go another 1/4 mile to the office to check in. This area doesn't have enough room to make a u-turn unless your rig is pretty small.
After checking in, you go back out on the main road to the aforementioned entrance.
Overall we had a good time and the issues were minor compared to having a safe place with lots of kids and things to do. All entrances are gated with key codes and there was a security guard on staff part of the time. The office staff was super nice and understanding when I lost my way coming into the wrong gate. :)
We did memorial day weekend 2019 here.
A lot of good things to say:
A pretty, wooded, natural looking campground.
The waterfront area, the trail, most of the campground in general is pretty.
It seemed like everyone respected the quiet time, after 10pm it was very quiet and peaceful.
The camp store is one of the best I've seen, very well stocked.
I really liked that it was a gated community and well enforced
The playground and kid area is centrally located and was full of kids
The 5mph speed limit is well respected, and it needs to be because there are kids darting around all over the place.
If there is a chance you'll be coming and going very early or late just get a gate card and save yourself some frustration.
"Heated Pool" is not a lie but don't assume this means "warm pool". Both pools are heated by 3 smallish solar panels on a nearby roof. The large pool was in the low 50's, the kiddie pool was probably mid 60's. I'm sure late July and early August it's pretty warm. Adjust expectations accordingly!
Our campsite was quite large, but there were a lot of trees and getting back out of it took quite a bit of back and forth. The wooded sites make navigating more challenging. If you have a large rig or if you are nervous about navigating in tight spaces, you may want to ask for a pull through (most aren't) or go into the overflow area (no sewer)
The sewer hookup had no cap. Just a rock. It wasn't threaded. This means it smells if it isn't attached. Also you need to use a brick or rock to stay attached with the lack of threads.
Water, cable connections are there but you may have to hunt for em a bit - mine were about 25 feet behind the parking portion of the site.
Lots of family oriented activities. Fire truck ride, flashlight candy scavenger hunt, etc.
Things appear to be clean and well maintained. 50amp didn't seem to work at my site but 30amp was fine.
The mini-golf is in bad shape.
The camp store is well stocked but pricey, even for a convenience store.
The sites are very close together with very little trees or anything to break it up. You are right on top of your neighbors.
This is a cute campground biking distance from Brattleboro.
The store and ice cream are cute, prices are very reasonable. Staff is fantastic and friendly.
The mini-golf course is in kind of rough shape, ask for a few extra balls because a few holes are going to eat them.
Main detractor is the neighbor blares really terrible music at obnoxious volume for about 16 hours a day. Get a site as far in the back as possible to get away from the noise.
