I see a lot of reviews on here about how much this places sucks because there are no showers or you are sleeping on a slope. What do you expect? You are camping! In the wilderness. If you need a shower every day, drive up the road 2 seconds to the public showers. If you don't like sleeping on a slope, find a less slanted place on your campsite and pitch your tent there. For people going camping, it seems they like luxury. If you like luxury, you should probably be sleeping in a hotel.
We stayed at Hodgdon Meadow two nights in August and had a great time. The first night we were close to the bathrooms, which was nice, but less privacy than some might want or expect. Bathrooms are clean enough for what they are. I wasn't expecting them to be pristine, since we are CAMPING, but they were always stocked with toilet paper and had a sink to wash your hands.
The second night we stayed near the Group sites and were much more secluded. I enjoyed this spot, except it was a bit of a trek to the bathroom in the middle of the night. They had a closer bathroom that was just a toilet that dropped into a really long hole so you can't flush anything. That was a little gross, but hey, you are camping and they had other bathrooms nearby.
Food storage lockers were sizeable. We had plenty of room for our food and belongings. Fire pits seemed taken care of. Campsite was free of trash. We didn't see any bears, even though we were expecting to. All campground rangers seemed nice enough, no one was overly loud and everyone seemed respectful. I would stay here again. Campground also has a BEAUTIFUL meadow. Definitely a must see!
