When you want quiet relaxation on the Maine Coast, this place rates a “10”. Megunticook Campground is complete with tent sites, back-ins, pull-throughs, and cottages. Every site is well shaded and some are quite private. None of the sites are directly on the water, but the large deck with pavilion, benches, and BBQ’s overlook scenic Peneobscot Bay. Easy access from Route 1 allows for day trips to nearby Rockland and Rockport, and a State Ferry terminal is nearby for exploring the islands.The facilities at Megunticook Campground are well maintained with private stall individual showers, a nice pool, and well-stocked store. All the staff are friendly and eager to help make your stay fun.
We were on a Road Trip, but decided to stay an extra day to celebrate our anniversary. Six years before we were married on the schooner “Victory Chimes” while anchored in Pulpit Harbor on North Haven Island. We watched the schooners across the Bay as they sailed into Pulpit Harbor for the night.
Thank you for taking the time to write this review. We are leaving next week for this resort and your write-up made me feel much more confident about my choice of camping venue. Thanks a bunch!
We revisited Megunticook in July of 2009. Three years ago the campground was bought by Morgan RV Resorts, Inc and we were concerned about “corporate” policies that can take away the family-run charm. It was a pleasant surprise to see the place has not changed. Wi-Fi has been added to the office and laundry buildings, and the store has been down-sized to basic toys and novelties.
Our first visit was with our old Truck Camper so the sites seemed big at that time. Now we tow a 25′ trailer which gave us a slightly different perspective. Many of the Pull-Throughs and Back-ins are a bit tight for larger rigs. There are a few Big Rig sites near the office with 50-amp power.
We are inspired to visit other Campgrounds owned by Morgan RV Resorts. So far, it seems, they maintain a high quality standard at their locations. The web site is a good guide to all of their facilities throughout the Eastern US.
