Great time at Powder Horn Camp Ground Old Orchard Beach Maine

Just wanted to let everyone know that we just returned from Old Orchard Beach in Maine and had a great time at Powder Horn Camp Ground. Very clean and well maintained. The staff is fantastic! The camp ground is on the trolley route to the beach and Pier. Site is near Cabela's and plenty to do with kids of all ages. My 15 year old son wants to go back. That says it all!

We also booked powder horn based on your rave review. I had booked KOA but was going to have to move my site halfway through the week. Was willing to do that till I read your review of powder horn. The clincher was the hot tubs.
My one question is now that I've been reading their policies and see they don't allow fires after 11. Is this a strict rule? I often like to just sit by the fire and am not ready to end at a designated time. I'm not taking roaring blaze Just a small fire while the kids are sledding and enjoy a cigar. Just wondering?

Am going to check this places website out now. Sounds real nice. Only downside will be trying not to buy more ammo and hunting gear at Cabela's. Lol

Not sure about the campfire rule. We did not stay up too late.

We just returned from Old Orchard Beach too. We go every year, sometimes just for the day to get Chinese food next to merry_go_round and seafood other places. Last year we stayed at HidnPines, very crowded and this year was at Paradise Park. This one we loved, less people, extremely clean and at top of hill going to beach.

We went to lamb city campground in phillipston. It is only 25 minutes from us so it was a good weekend trip. We actually went up on Thursday night after work and just went to work and daycare from there Friday. That way we didn't use Friday evening getting set up, just started the weekend right away! Lamb city was good, the kids enjoyed it. We had a pull thru right next to the playground so that worked out for the kids. They have 3 pools. It was mostly seasonal sites but the weekenders were pretty much together. Our friends had the site next to us so that was fun.

Another good weekend trip is woodmore's in Rindge. We are going back labor day weekend. Again for us, just about 40 minutes away. My kids LOVE the mini fenway park whiffle ball field they just built. There were like a million kids to play with. Saturday night was a real party atmosphere.

I can't leave work before 5 on Fridays so weekend trips for us need to be within an hour drive! The weekend of September 5 we are going to Minuteman in littleton, ma because my older son has a hockey tournament in Chelmsford all weekend. Have you been there?
