Old Orchard Beach, Maine

Planning a trip to Old Orchard Beach, Maine and looking for CG. I have heard of Powder Horn, Wild Acres and Old Orchard Beach.
Any feedback appreciated.

Actually if you want a quiet park (no one under 21 allowed) you should give wilduck campground a try, Wild Duck Campground RV Park - Scarborough, Maine Campground . Its about 10 minutes from Old Orchard Beach. Call ahead because they are usually sold out.

Thank you for all the good suggestions. I just booked next weekend at Bayleys's camping resort in the back at one of the pond sites. 1st time to Maine and looking forward to it.

Congrats. I think you will enjoy it. Depending on what you want to do while your there etc. there is alot to do. One piece of advice. Look at the directions to the place.

Follow the directions from the North

From the North

Follow the Maine Turnpike to Exit 42 (Scarborough). After the toll booth, go straight through the first set of lights, onto Haigis Parkway. At the next set of lights, take a right onto Route 1 South. Continue to the third set of lights. Turn left onto Route 9 (Pine Point Road). Continue 2.5 miles, Bayley's Camping Resort is on your right.

From NY you will be coming up the maine turnpike from the south ( AKA 95). but just skip exit 36 and head up to 42 it's only about another 5 or so miles I think. But it's much easier getting off and making the left onto pine point than the hard right.

Good luck

Looking forward to your post after you get back. Was trying to plan a trip up there with my parents, but Mom is complaining about how expensive it is. I have stayed at Bayleys, Wild Acres and years ago at Old Orchard Beach campground (now only seasonal). Checked out Powder Born this year too. Would like to know how full the place is while you're there. Bayleys was most expensive this year at $368.00 for Sunday to Thursday. Man, 4 nights at almost $100 a night for 4 adults! And that's not even the weekend, so nothing going on. Wild Acres was the lowest at $227. Still not sure if we're gonna go or not. Guess Myrtle Beach has me spoiled, just got back from 7 days with all kinds of amenities for less than $400.

I look forward to going to Myrtle Beach-I have heard a lot of nice things.
Wild Acres is booked until the end of August. I missed the enterprise special rates for this weekend but I called Bayleys for some answers and they told me about Prime Toyota Rentals. Anyone without a car they rent $38.50 and $44.00 per day and their weekend rates Friday-Tuesday are $104.00 and $124.00. This is tax included. They also have a shuttle to Bayleys.
Off to Maine in the morning! Yeah!
