This is another “family” campground with lots of stuff for kids including a very extensive playground and lots of barnyard animals. Many seasonal sites that are apparently only used on weekends. The seasonals were all neat and well kept. We were here during the week so we missed what was probably a zoo on weekends. It is a very nice campground and way lower priced than most others in the area. You have a choice of FHU with 30 amp elect or W&E only with 50 amp. No difference in price. We took the FHU since we were there for 5 days. It turned out to be good voltage and satellite friendly. Not sure if you could get sat from the 50 amp sites. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Wow, what a nice find. The name really describes this place to a T. We co-hosted a small Rally of 8 Bounders here and everyone was impressed with the place. Very quiet and peaceful here. Most of us were in the huge pull through grass sites with 50 amps and water. Even with heavy downpours on two days we had no trouble with getting out. Might be an issue after really intense rain. Hookups are side by side, but we all had so much room between us that it was a non issue. TV via batwing and Verizon cell and broadband were both very good. This is a very good value compared to what the parks closer to the ocean charge. We paid $30 plus tax for our sites. We will definitely be back again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Homestead by the River stresses that they are a family campground. I have been to many campground where it is loud all night with people drinking, laughing, yelling and yes fighting and swearing. You will not find that here. One of my daughters hates camping and she loved it and wanted to stay another night and asked to come back next year. We were thrilled. She learned to ride her bike at this campground. I saw one person who drove above the speed limit and noticeably a bit reckless and she was a young girl. The team of husband, wife and father run a tight ship which for the camper who wants to get away and have peace and quiet this place is a 10. The sites are spacious, clean (no cigarette butts, and yes my husband is a smoker) and you won't find dog waste everywhere or trash. People respect the natural surroundings. The farm is wonderful for the kids and the employees could not be any more helpful and accommodating. My family will be going back next year. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Park is owned by a very nice couple who are working hard to clean it up from the previous owner. There are horses, llamas, sheep, ducks and chickens. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay there again. It is a family oriented park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a very quaint, quiet campground. The staff was very helpful and friendly. What we liked most was that our dog could swim all day in the river and no one bothered us. We camped there with friends and we were able to pull up next to each other awning to awning. All in all it was a great place for us. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Has a small arm gate for "security" operated from the office/camp store that, if someone wanted to, could be bypassed by driving around the barn before the gate. We got a kick out of the British flag flying under the American Flag on a pole next to the office. Alot of seasonals. No discounts of any kind on rates. A dumpster along the entrance road where they dump the animal waste with many flies buzzing about. We paid the 31.75 and set up. Since the coach was hot from travel and we had 4 dogs with us I asked if I could run the air for an hour to cool it down. I could, but it cost me another 3 dollars extra. I paid the 3 and went to the RV to get changed. I left the door open to get cooler air until the ac had a chance to start working, then changed into a pair of shorts. I had just finished pulling on my shorts when there was a knock at the door. The lady that owned the campground was upset that the door was open and the AC was on and we were wasting electricity (That I had paid extra for). After that fiasco, things went smoothly and we had a quiet pleasnt night. Loads of goats, chickens and horses around. It was a clean and neat campground but I would not go back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a real "old timey" trailer park that is still in the process of being updated. The park is in the middle of farm lands and was very quiet. We were only here for one night to visit a student at UNC and it was very convenient and the owner was very nice. It was an unexpected pleasure to have free Wi-Fi. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This campground is centrally located near some of the major attractions that southern Maine offers. We had a very pleasant stay. The facilities may be older, but they are kept very clean. Children have a lot of activities to keep them entertained; volleyball, full basketball court, inground pool, playground, woods, open fields, and nearby beaches (aprox 1.5 miles). This was a great vacation because the children were able to keep busy at the facility so we could relax! There is a good combination of families and retired adults who stay there. One of the most positive aspects of this facility is the owner refers to you by your name, even after check in. I have not had personalized service like that in a long time. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground itself is older and in need of some touching up, but was just purchased in May 2002 by a family who is working on that. The campsites are tucked into spruce trees (full hookups are in a field in front of the building). The the S. Coastal area of Maine, there are limited choices unless you want one of the huge campgrounds in Wells. The other neightboring campground Salty Acres actually looks better but we really wanted a full hookup and chose Shamrock. It is very quiet and private and since you are at a destination site, not staying to enjoy the campground, is perfect for the price and convenience to Kennebunkport, Oquinquit, etc. We were very glad we stayed here after viewing the mecca campgrounds off of busy Route 1 in Wells. We camped here in a camper.
