The owners are fantastic, and the place is spacious and park like. Plenty of room for the kids to run and play, and there’s access to lots of trails. The pool is clean, and store is well stocked. They also have cute, well equipped cabins - not like the generic “Kamping Kabins” at most KOAs. This is the kind of place I would bring the in-laws or friends who turn their noses up at camping.

Easily changed our early summer reservation to early October - due to the pandemic. Loved the ease of getting to the campground and into our site. All sizes of sites, many with trees &shrubs between sites, some multiple family areas.Clean, modernized bathhouse, (handicapped accessible,) all the usual playground stuff and more. ATVs welcome, but not allowed to drive around the camper sites. Ample parking near the ATV fuel-up area and well-marked trail to the Maine ATV trails. Snack bar, small store, (game room not open during pandemic). Mostly shaded sites. Wifi available throughout the sites. Many locals on weekends, quieter on the weekdays, quiet hours seem well monitored and respected.

We stayed at Balsam Woods 5 years ago and loved the campground. Now 5 years later, the campground is still clean, friendly, level sites, offers large wooded sites and the owners are terrific. Of course, with Covid 19, there are not any activities during the week. Of course, you are asked to maintain social distancing and wear a mask in the store. There are activities on the weekend. We really think this is one of, if not the best, campgrounds we have stayed in. I hope it’s not another 5 years to visit again.

This is a great campground. The sites are described in detail in the website and that helped us pick a private spot. The bathrooms were super clean and comfortable. Staff was friendly and helpful. Loved the rec room and having a general store on-site was a nice bonus. Trail access from the atv parking area was great too. Only wish we could ride out Rzr to our site. We do a lot of camping and leave our truck at a trailhead.
