We stayed at the Pinderosa over Fourth of July weekend for 4 nights. I can't say enough about how pleased we were with the entire set-up. We are tent campers and most places treat you like third-class citizens and shove you in some neglected part of the campground, but here we were welcomed and given a very nice campsite which was large and easily able to accomodate our huge tent and dining area for the other 4 families that came with us.
The highway is close by, but it is kind of a "white noise" and after awhile most people don't notice it. If it does bother you I suggest ear plugs. There is no escaping road noise in this section of Maine, it will come from either the interstate or one of the other heavily traveled roads on the coast.
The bathrooms are clean no matter what time of day or night you visit them. There is a slop sink and washers and dryers right outside them. There is a swimming pool which we never used because we were at the beach all day. It looked well kept and clean.
Overall this campground is much better than the giant parking lot style campgrounds which dot the southern coast of Maine. The sites are large enough to allow some privacy and the bathhouses are centrally located enough to insure only a short walk to them.
As to the person complaining about their children not being able to have sparklers: There was a sign posted in the checkout which clearly stated that they were not allowed. Does the phrase "forest fire" mean anything to you?
I will most definately be back.
