We have a transient site for Labor Day weekend. Great activities..without a doubt. But, the noise. We feel like we are staying along a freeway. Way too much traffic in this campground - both cars and golf carts. And no speed limit enforced. We can’t hear each other talk over the sound of the traffic. We will not return here.
And...when they say 3:00 check-in, it is strictly enforced. Never been in a campground where that is the case. So, at 3:00, a line of RVs headed to their sites. We are in a circle of 8 sites. Four of us pulled in at same time. NOT FUN!

This was our fifth year in a row at Point Sebago with our three kids (9, 11, 13). We love the place and will return but there is much room for improvement here.
One of our primary reasons for going here is the scheduled activities, which seem to be fewer with the new ownership. Furthermore, there seemed to be several activities that were canceled without notice or the staff just did not show up. When the activities did go as scheduled the equipment and facilities were lacking, e.g. a shuffleboard tournament with 30 teams, 9 courts but only enough equipment to run 4 games at once. Seriously, new sets of pucks could be ordered off of Amazon, there is no reason that they should be lacking equipment. Pickleball and Washer toss had similar issues with equipment and courts in very rough shape.
Sunset and pirate cruises are gone, with no indication that they will be returning. Too bad, we enjoyed those.
We were disappointed that our tradition of going to the breakfast buffet on our last day had to be canceled, apparently they are not serving that anymore. We did attend the twin lobster dinner, and while the lobsters were good the 'service' was non existent. We had to bus our own table before sitting down and did not see a server once for a drink order.
Snack bar food is what I would expect it to be, but without exception it takes 30 minutes for them to make an order, no matter how busy they are. A pager system to let you know the order is ready would be a vast improvement here.
Finally, I'm hoping the team at Point Sebago can do a better job policing the activities and adherence to age restrictions. There were several that my son attended that were dominated by kids who were obviously much too old to be in the game.
I'm hoping the new ownership can address some of the issues and improve the resort so that we can continue to enjoy it as a family for years to come.
