Papoose Pond Resort & Campground – Waterford, ME
Our family has camped at Papoose Pond Resort every summer for the past 5 years. We stayed there this past July and have already made reservations for this fall and can’t wait to get there!
The park has 180 campsites ranging from wooded tent sites to full hookup sites for big RVs. You can camp on a beachfront site, a site with a dining shelter, even a site complete with a kitchen and bath! We have a small Class C motorhome and there are plenty of site options for us.
The campground is actually two seperate areas. One section has campsites and cottages, fairly close together but you are near most of the campground amenities including the beach, general store and activities area. The other section is across the main highway (ME Route 118). This section has larger, mostly wooded sites. Most of them have more privacy because of existing vegetation that surrounds them.
The staff was friendly and the grounds and facilities were clean and well maintained. They have a daily trash pick-up service right from your site.
If you don’t have camping equipment, they have more than 60 rental units ranging from simple camping cabins located right on the beach to deluxe cabins, bunkhouse trailers, park models and lakefront housekeeping cottages with fireplaces, screened porches and great views.
Each week during the summer Papoose Pond offers an activities program with more than 100 fully supervised events and a nightly entertainment schedule featuring both professional entertainers and Papoose Pond Activity Staff.
Facilities include a one half-mile sandy beach, an 8,000 square foot recreational hall, 2 video arcades, a separate building for arts & crafts, an 18 hole mini-golf course, tennis, basketball, horseshoes, shuffleboard, a fleet of more than 50 rental boats, even a 1916 old fashioned carousel! They have a fully stocked “Trading Post” that has everything from ice, wood and groceries to clothing, toys and souvenirs. The Carousel Cafe, is their fast food restaurant, with daily specials. They also have free wi-fi.
I highly recommend Papoose Pond Resort… especially if you have kids. They’ll love it!
