Parks Pond Campground is located on 14 acres of beautiful Parks Pond in the small town of Clifton, Maine. Mike and Selina Lufkin and family want you to “come play in our neighborhood” soon. We have several “Theme Weekends” planned throughout the season along with karoake, potluck suppers, dances, hayrides, ice cream socials, movie nights, cribbage tournaments, horse shoe tournaments, and more. Our season opens mid May when Clifton is alive with spring in the air and closes mid October just in time for some leaf peeping. Check out our schedule on the web www.parkspondcampground.com for more details and reservations.

Total Trailer Trash

Date:

July 23, 2011

Thought this place may be good for extended stay and to make day trips to other Maine places down-east. Found the place to be 99% trailer trash occupied with "campers" from the local area. Our site was so close to the road we could count the lug nuts on the trailer trucks that roared by 24 hours a day. The locals were loud and mostly drunk...glad we didn't land there on the day after they got their food stamps.
Bugs were horrible and lake is muddy with borken glass found in the swimming area. Our 6 day visit lasted one horrible night and we could not get a refund on our lot fee as we reserved and paid in advance.
Staying at a Wal-Mart parking lot would be an improvement.

Tried this place during low season (post Labor Day). Many trailers on property appeared to be full season, but no one was around them. Would like a maybe option for the coming back question.

Beautiful location, our campsite was right on edge of water. Lots of ducks and also lots of mosquitos. Bathrooms were ok, not spotless, but not horrific.

Individual campsites seemed extremely close to each other, as is the case with most campgrounds. Wish more thought had been put into individual location positions along the water's edge, so more could enjoy the view right outside their unit, rather than looking at another unit between them and water. (sites were parallel with water, so those who came in later had to look at all the other units).

Saw (and heard) lots of kids in the evening - many bikes and skateboards in some areas. Too cold to go swimming in the lake (fall weather). Wish we had our kayaks.
