 We prove $L^p$ bounds for the maximal operators associated to an Ahlfors-regular variant of fractal percolation. Our bounds improve upon those obtained by I. Łaba and M. Pramanik and in some cases are sharp up to the endpoint. A consequence of our main result is that there exist Ahlfors-regular Salem Cantor sets of any dimension $> 1/2$ such that the associated maximal operator is bounded on $L^2(\mathbb{R})$. We follow the overall scheme of Łaba-Pramanik for the analytic part of the argument, while the probabilistic part is instead inspired by our earlier work on intersection properties of random measures.
