The bunk houses are really nice. Spartan, but clean and comfortable. The bathroom and the outside trash area need to be clean every day. The staff was really nice and helpful, especially Richie.

Rates listed are per person per site, view is great, in 6 days I was there the bathroom was never cleaned and say a lot of use by the large amount of AT hikers, trash was piled high. The free breakfast was ok similar to what you would get at a motel.

Wanted to stay within the park but was booked out. Looked around the area and found this cute campground. Best decision! Worth getting up extra early to drive to the park gate. After tackling Katahdin, it was nice to be able to take a shower which was very clean. Then to be able to have the choice not to cook and get some homemade food, Bonus! The views of the campground were great and the staff is very friendly. I have to go back to hike North Brother, Would consider strongly staying here again! :)

We had the most beautiful site so when we stepped out of our tent there was the river and Mt Katahdin as beautiful as ever! It's a memory I will never forget-breathtaking! The campground was clean and so were the bathrooms. I loved the free breakfast too.

Stayed during a climb of Katahdin, hiking, and whitewater rafting. Store clerks, waitress, and cook were friendly and accommodating to any needs. Campground clean, found other campers to be quiet and peacefull. Food was good at the restaurant. Good place to stay.

Excellent place to stay prior to hiking to Katahdin to finish my Appalachian Trail hike. Cottage was very clean & comfortable. Staff at camp & restaurant was very pleasant & easy to deal with. Food was GREAT. I would highly recommend this campground to anyone passing thru this area.

Snowmobiled to Abol a few weekends back & enjoyed a great new stop for us along the way! Nice to have a good lunch and facility use while out on a cold day in the woods. Met Zach the young owner. Very hospitable. And the store was well stocked with a few things we needed. Will be back for sure!
our favorite spot

Just want to thank Zach for hosting us this year. The place is so beautiful. Linda is missed, but she surely handed off the torch to great people. Can't wait to come back for season eleven. Definitely one of my favorite places in the world.

Have been going to Abol for over 20 years and was a little skeptical about new ownership. Boy was I surprised, everyone was fantastic and I love the new improvements. Kitchen addition is wonderful beats having to cook when it's hot. Pizza's are delicious. New reservations system takes some getting used to, but its better than snail mail. Wish Zach lots of luck in his new endeavor. See you this fall.

Brian and young woman clerk helpful and friendly. Steak sub great! Lots of useful grocery & sundry items. Camp site reservation not satisfactory; we reserved a site and when we got there after dark tired and unfamiliar to area to set up tents, the site was taken by someone else. Showers turned off at 9:30p not 10:00p as posted.

The new owners are great. A lot of upgrades since they took over. The store is packed with everything I needed then some. Great food. Try the steak and cheese sub. It's real. not that shaved stuff, yuck! Campground was cleaner than it's ever been. Good Luck to them.
