If you want to visit the Phippsburg area of Maine, your camping options are pretty limited. We chose Meadowbrook Camping Area for the simple fact we wanted to explore that particular area of Maine. The campground has a mix of sites from tent sites tucked away in the woods to large RV sites in the open. We camped in a 45’ RV and wanted a 50 amps full hook-up site severely limited our choices. We were assigned a pull thru that had such a steep incline we determined it best to actually back into the site so we didn’t bottom out trying to get up the hill. The site was unlevel and we were always on a bit of an incline. Our coach is pretty sensitive when it comes to leveling so this may not be a problem with other units or towables. The site and driveway were gravel and we had a decent picnic table and fire pit.
There are a fair amount of seasonals that have lots of junk around their campers and some sites are pretty unsightly. The restrooms were really old and not very clean. The office is a little run down and the maintenance shop behind it was unsightly with lots of equipment and stuff lying around. Needless to say, our first impressions of the campground were not that good. They tout themselves on the fact that they have fresh lobster on-site and will cook and deliver them to your site. But one look at the dirty water in the tank and we decided to head to the local lobster dock and wrangle up some fresh ones from the clean ocean water. They have a poolside café with a pretty all-day extensive menu. We didn’t eat there but it seemed to be pretty busy as it looked like lots of orders were always being. Our campsite was right next to the pool, café, and arcade area so we had a view of all the action. At least our patio side was not facing that busy area. There was an open karaoke night around a community fire pit that was very popular and everyone was having a great time.
People here were very nice and overall it was an o.k. stay. We choose this campground because it was the only one in the area we wanted to explore.
