As the patriarch of a young active family we enjoy many outdoor activities. From the many sports my two teenage sons participate in year round to our active family vacations. As an active family our usual mode of summer time fun and vacationing involves camping. I don’t mean small pop tent &and a back pack to go off in some secluded back woods. Our family’s choice is in a twenty seven foot travel trailer with air conditioning, a microwave oven, a full bathroom with shower, and real comfy beds.
As a family that enjoys the camping experience with the sense of being amongst the trees and nature, but still wanting many available activities a resort style campground has to offer is key to our vacationing enjoyment. Pools, Jacuzzis, mini golf and many more fun activities offered is exactly our speed. We may not partake in all these offerings but certainly want them available just in case. Our most favorite campground by far is Wild Acres Campground in Old Orchard Beach Maine. It is undeniably the most comprehensive and family friendly resort style campground I have ever visited in my four decades of camping.
Wild Acres is located on seventy five acres of pristine open fields and woodlands in the heart of Old Orchard beach. It is only two tenths of a mile to the beautiful white sand beaches nestled in between downtown Old Orchard and the community of Ocean Park. The park boosts over five hundred campsites with many being thirty or fifty ampere electrical service. Wild Acres offers many amenities, that include but are certainly not limited to, free hot showers, four hot tubs (two adult, one older teen, and one under thirteen years of age), three pools and many other entertainment options.
They recently added a sixty foot screen that is centrally located within the park where movies and various sporting events can be seen and watched with other friendly campers and their families. This area also doubles for many fun filled shows like the interactive surfing band, Tequila Sunrise. Many other acts perform at this giant outdoor theater, they include, reggae bands, hypnotists, ventriloquists, karaoke, and other musically talented guests. Weekly barbeques and carnival styled events and parties also take place with great fervor in this area.
The park offers other types of fun and activities, way to many to name them all but some examples are; weekly horseshoe tournaments with surrounding campgrounds, basketball and tennis tournaments for both kids and adults, mini golf on site, volleyball, shuffleboard, and a giant air conditioned arcade. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the campground, all sites have cable television, and there is a large well stocked store with many goodies so each and every family member can dabble in a little guilty pleasure. You may also rent three or four wheeled giant pedal powered scooters to explore the park or just zip and zoom around aimlessly having fun. If you don’t want to pedal than golf carts are also for rent for those who simply want to drive around exploring leisurely.
Outside the park’s gated entrances are many more activities to keep a young family busy or allow one to just relax. Relaxing comes from the seven miles of white sandy beach. Either relaxing right outside the back gate or heading toward the pier, as long as you can sit back on that near perfect beach you can’t help keep from chillin’ out. The beach area by the pier will usually be more crowded but from the sand you can groove to the bands playing on stage from the open air bars and clubs overlooking the beach. A third beaching option is to head a short distance south and enjoy a natural water park or lazy river at Ocean Park’s own slice of heavenly beaches. Here the beach is privately owned so a cold beer, bring a cooler because you can’t just have one, or a glass of wine can be enjoyed guilt free.
The area also has a great assortment of amusement parks just a couple miles away. Right in downtown is a small antiquated if not somewhat obsolete amusement and recreation area. These rides will thrill you but value and beauty are not well represented here. The rides are expensive and range from five to seven dollars each. There is a slight “carnie” feel here so beware just a little bit. The main amusement area is just minutes away on Route 1 in Saco where there are several upscale and well maintained water parks and a thrill ride adventure park. The only draw is these are the typical tourist traps and are very pricy, thirty five dollars a person per day. Next year we will be purchasing season passes and go as many times as possible doing our best to make our money back and them some.
The area around Old Orchard is packed with other activities to partake in. There are many mini golf courses all around, there are also several batting cages and driving range facilities, several movie theaters and arcades, also bowling is available just to round out the most prevalent examples of how to stay busy. If none of these work the downtown area has many shops, restaurants, and more than it’s share of watering holes, many of which I have at very least sampled it’s décor. O. K. I sampled more than just the décor, happy hour anybody?
This area of Maine has always catered to visitors from New England, New York, and farther south to New Brunswick and Quebec, Canada. With that being said it can be a little too touristy and overcrowded. Until you head back to your peaceful campsite. Also with the importance placed on the all mighty tourism dollar things can be expensive inside and out of the park. Gas is higher than here than at home, many groceries seem more expensive, but luckily, beer, wine, and other alcohol can be purchased at almost any local store, and is in fact cheaper.
The campground itself is one of the most expensive that our family has visited. The cost, without discounts, is around fifty dollars a night, but deals are always out there in coupons, web-deals and free nights as incentives for paying early. That being said, it is still by far our favorite. With all the activities at our whim both inside and outside the campground, it is obvious that the little extra money charged goes to keeping the park and bathrooms immaculate. The fees also pay for the great and very friendly security staff that are always on patrol so you don’t need to worry about anything else except what you are doing for fun, what you are eating, and of course, what you are drinking.
Wild Acres has been our most anxiously awaited vacation each and every year for the last fifteen years. And while we enjoyed many other campgrounds that we have visited over the years none are so anticipated as our annual homage to Old Orchard. We are now joined by upwards of twenty other families each year who now camp with us in a giant roving fun filed gang. They to, have all fallen in love with all that the park and the area have to offer. After all the different places we have seen and visited we have finally settled down and purchased a thirty five foot nonmovable seasonal camper at Wild Acres. It has an attached twenty foot by ten foot Florida room that almost doubles its livable space. Finally we have made the decision to hunker down and enjoy this park all spring, summer, and into the fall. It should be a blast.

Price is way too high!

We have stayed at this campground at least 10 times for 2 weeks at a time and loved it. Unfortunately we feel the price has gone up way too much and now we travel to Wildwood NJ where it is more affordable ( a family is considered 2 adults and 2 children there) and the weather is guaranteed warmer).With the price of gas going up I think you should consider lowering your fees as less people will be travelling this summer and the tourists will not be coming especially at these prices!
