This campground, in Brownfield, Maine, is located right on the border with New Hampshire. It is spacious, heavily wooded, and quiet. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely return.

Overall Rating: 4.1/5
Price per night / Discounts: $40 / None
Campground website: Woodland Acres Campground
Our Site #: 10 - FHU
Privacy Rating (how spacious and private do the sites feel):
5/5: Our site was a very large pull-through. It probably helped that we had no neighbors on either side, but even if we did, we think the site would have felt quite private. There's a lot of vegetation between the sites and lots of space within each campsite, so it was really a perfect set-up for us.
Location Rating (accessibility to points of interest or to major highways):
4.5/5: We were about 25 minutes away from the tourist town of Conway, and about 35 minutes from the beginning of the Kankamagus Highway, so if you're interested in those types of things, it's a great location. The Saco river is really popular for all kinds of water related activities and there are tons of options in the area. This campground would be a great summertime vacation destination or a solid place to stop while traveling from Vermont to Maine, as we did.
Site Quality and Big Rig Accessibility Rating (utilities and accessibility of campground hook ups):
3.5/5: Our pull through site was enormous, but we had to park at the very back of it in order to get level easily. The surface of the site was sand which A) made a mess inside the RV all the time, and B) made it harder to level without boards. I'd also note the trees on some of the interior roads could use some trimming back as they brushed our rig as we were driving in. It's nothing that would stop us from staying there again, but it is something to think about for really big rigs.
Technology and Customer Service Rating (online resources, reservations, and staff):
4/5: Their website has all the information you need, though you do need to call for reservations. Customer service was good. It's under new management and the owners live onsite. They were very friendly and are obviously working hard to improve the campground. They also offer various canoe and kayak trips along the Saco River which was pretty neat.
Internet Availability Rating (Verizon coverage or campground wifi):
3.5/5: No wifi at the campsites. Verizon worked well.
This is a large, heavily wooded campground right along a popular river. Other than the fact that our site was a bit unlevel and had a sandy surface, we really liked it. There were not many people in the campground the days we were there, but even if it was more crowded, I expect it would be a very enjoyable place to spend time. If traveling with kayaks, there is direct river access from the campground which would be useful, and otherwise, you can rent boats through the campground. All in all, we enjoyed our stay and would return.
