Laundry Areas

Two self service laundry facilities with change machines and detergent dispensers are located  at each bathhouse and are open 24 hours a day.


With two playgrounds, kids of all ages are guaranteed a fun time. Our main playground which was recently updated is located nearest the lower bathhouse (closest to the river) . Our 2nd playground is located near our upper bathhouse.

Saco Country Store

Since Saco River Camping Area is such a big place to visit (nearly 50 acres !), the best way to learn everything begins at our store. Here our Guest Service Specialists will assist you with your site arrangements, help plan your itinerary, arrange for future reservations, and help to provide you with everything you need to have the best vacation possible.

Have fun in our old miners’ sluicing station.  Learn about many locally found  gems and minerals while enjoying a great time with your family doing some old-time mining.

Change machines are in the laundry areas in our upper and river bathhouses. An additional restroom facility with a toilet and sink is located behind the store (seasonally). 

Swimming Pool

Open seasonally from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day. Whether you’re wading, lap-swimming, or spending a lazy day in the sun, as long as you bring a towel and sunscreen our heated pool makes for a great place to have fun.  Remember, our pool is NOT staffed by lifeguards-swimming is at your own risk.
