Maine - Orland - Bucksport KOA / by Dave Hileman

I imagine it is very hard to transition an older, perhaps a bit run down or with different standards RV park into a KOA. My experience has been very positive with KOA overall and I have been pleased with the three parks we have been in that were in the midst of the transition. One in NJ had a long way to go, this park, near Bucksport and Fort Knox in Maine is well underway. It might be because of the engagement of the owners, David and Marlene. I was impressed with their plans and with what they had already accomplished. For our purposes it was a perfect stay. Why? We were headed to the NP campground in Acadia and there we would not have any services for five days. I wanted to: 1. fill the water tank, 2. completely empty grey and black tanks, 3. refill propane and 4. have all the batteries fully charged. We did all that at our site. It was a just enough angle to fully empty tanks, David had the propane filled and everything else worked. We were also only an hour plus to Acadia so easy access to MDI and we arrived early enough to settle in, take a couple of hikes and get ice cream. We MAY have gotten the ice cream first. Good stop, fair price, nice people lots to see in the area.
