Nice campground, Clean.... quiet.... They helped me with last minute reservations. Not.... early check in friendly. I've got a big rig and the boulder placement around the park could be hazardous. Close to Ellsworth with some great eating

We finally made it to Maine after six months of experiencing so much beauty. Our first RV park in Old Orchard was a horrible experience. You can look that up on my other reviews. With that said our goal was to find a beautiful RV park located between Acadia National Park and Bangor. So I decided somewhere around Ellsworth. I started reading the reviews about Forest Ridge and the one star that someone wrote caught my eye. The things that the person said was exactly what I was looking for in a park. When my wife, two little fur babies and myself arrived at the park we were greeted by the owner(Jeff)and his wife. Immediately they made us feel like we were welcomed guest. The park is so beautiful with the top part being partial shade and the bottom half being mostly shade with a beautiful setting. The lots are huge compared to the other parks we had stayed at. The grass was constantly being maintained. Everyone we met at the park was so friendly to us. Most of all the park was very relaxing and safe. I walked my dogs without fear of being attacked by other dogs. No drunks, partying or craziness was allowed. The people drove their vehicles with respect for others. The restrooms and laundry was immaculate. The park was perfectly located exactly where we needed it in order to visit all of the beauty we traveled so far to experience. A special thank you to Jeff for checking on us and keeping a clean and safe place to stay while in Maine. We rode the free LL Bean bus a couple of times into Bar Harbor and was able to go inside several other RV parks on the bus route. They all looked so crowded and mundane. I honestly feel we made the best choice by choosing Jeff’s park, and don’t let me forget to mention we got to meet Darrel the famous ATF dog. Jeff please don’t ever change a thing in your park, it’s perfect just the way it iso

This is the perfect location for visiting Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. It is out of the craziness of the resort area yet within a short drive. The campground is well kept, secure and quiet with large sites and great facilities. We are considering a 2-3 month summer stay in the future. Jeff is the perfect host!

We have been seasonal campers since 2013 and would not stay at any other campground in the area/ The owners are great people and fun to be with. Every year they pick a substantial project to improve the campground and also keep up with other projects through the season. There are rules that you are given when you sign in like every other campground and if you can't or won't follow the rules you should just move on. The staff is always checking to see what needs to be done to keep the campground looking nice. The owners send out emails at least one day in advance so the sites are free of chairs and plants to make it easier for staff to mow and trim. the speed limit is 5 mpg mainly to keep the dust down as the roads are dirt and to be considerate of pets and older campers walking on uneven roads. This campground is nestled in a partial wooded area conveniently located between Bar Harbor, Blue Hill, Southwest Harbor, Stonington , Bucksport and Bangor as well as easy to get to downeast as well. The pool is heated when the temperature is down and the bathrooms and laundry areas are clean. There are a lot of moquitoes in the whole state and as far as I know there are no traps to catch them. I will always go back to this campground.
