O.K. campground, great water views.

There is not much to say about this campground. We wanted to love it because of its waterfront location in mid-coast Maine but just couldn’t do it. The campground is located in S. Thomaston which is a great location and beautiful area. The access to water and views are really pretty spectacular but the campground leaves a lot to be desired and I wish the owners would realize the potential of this place and make improvements. 

Sites vary from those that accommodate RVs with water and electric to those for tents. There is no sewer but a dump station is available if you don’t mind packing up to dump. For the most part, sites are grassy with a picnic table and a fire ring. The bathhouse has hot showers and flush toilets that were just o.k.– a little on the old side and overused. We did spot a random port-a-potty which made us appreciate our self-contained RV. A small campsite store is located on-site and open just a few months in the summer. The cheapest places to buy firewood are the many roadside stands that sell them on the honor system for$3-4. Not all sites in the campground are level and the roads were in pretty bad shape so plan on going slow through the potholes. A lot of the sites are open to the sun but there are some shade trees along the edges. The lack of shade really isn’t a problem in this area because the evenings cool off and there is a nice cool ocean breeze. We were able to get strong Verizon cell service and internet but our over-the-air antenna did not work and we had to go to Dish satellite. There are very few amenities but that is o.k. because you have awesome water views and are in a great location for sightseeing, hiking, and paddling. 

We really wanted to love this campground because of the location, but just couldn’t get there. It is really tight for big rigs and many of the sites are just o.k. being too close, unlevel, or with no view. The location is great, if that is what you are after. Not too far away is the best lobster pound in the world– McLoons which has the best food and most amazing views.
