This is the closest campground to LL Bean. It is under new ownership and new management. The staff is very friendly and helpful. There are lots of improvements under way so it will get better and better. The atmosphere is more like a state park than a commercial campground. The place is very quiet at night and has a very pleasant wooded feel. We found the overall experience to be very good. Nothing fancy, just what you need. We highly recommend this campground We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We have stayed at this cg numerous times. If you like a big splashy facility, this is not your stop. However if you enjoy a friendly, family type atmosphere, drop anchor. This place has everything we need for a comfortable weekend or longer. Closest park to downtown Freeport shopping and easy to get to off I295 at exit 22. We will be back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Cedar Haven is a quiet, tree-covered spot near the Freeport ME Outlet shops, L.L. Bean retail stores and Wolf Neck State Park. The owner is very personable but the campground is a bit overpriced for its condition and facilities. Good Sam Park Affiliate. Open May 1 to Nov 1 GPS Coordinates: 43o 53.173’ N; 70o 05.356’ W We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park was absolutely awful. We were placed near the entry road and it felt like we were in the backyard of the house behind us. As a matter of fact I think our cable was connected to the house! It would have been more fun to stay home and camp in our driveway. The roads were dirt, the pond, if you want to call it that, is nothing but a mudhole. This campground is right next to a subdivision and separated by only a fence. Bottom line: stay away!!!! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park should not be allowed to advertise as being easy access for all size RVs. It is not big rig friendly. It is very rustic with lots of trees to get in the way. Roads were gravel/dirt. Sites were dirt. The park was not very well maintained. The electricity had very low voltage. It was 90 degrees when we were there and we couldnt run our A/C. When we complained, we were told to run our generator which we did. There was a muddy pond for swimming instead of a pool. We will not be returning to this park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The staff was courteous and helpful. They shared dining recommendations and local haunts to visit. The atmosphere was quiet and family friendly. There was an additional $3.00 per day surcharge for running our AC. Which we ran 2 of our 3 days stay. We would definitely stay here again. While we never used the rest room, shower, or laundry facility, they appeared maintained though small and rustic. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice campground at end of Desert Road. Tight maneuvering through tall pines in the campground but well maintained roads and nice fairly level sites with E-W-S hookups. No cable or Internet other than a hookup in the office itself. No Wi-Fi. Handy (2 miles) to LL Bean and all the outlet stores. Very friendly and helpful staff. We also stayed here for another over nighter in early October. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Extremely friendly and helpful people at check-in. We stayed in a water and electric site for one night as no full hookups were available. Site was sandy with lots of tree roots and tall trees, close to the pool, which seemed mostly unused. Not a busy park, but located close to Freeport and the many outlets. Although clean, the bath houses were old, had tissue paper thin walls, and an old washing machine and dryer were located outside the bath under an overhang. Full hookup sites were located around the bath house in the rear of the park. Narrow, tight dirt roads into campground area. A nice touch was the floral planters with hummingbird feeders at the entrance to the water/electric sites. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were pleasantly surprised at the quietness, cleanliness, and attention to detail that is evident at this park. Washrooms are exceptionally clean. Well treed lots, which are spaced quite far apart. The staff clearly checked the sites in between guests. The fire pits were cleaned out and the surface was raked clean. It's also less than a 10 minute drive to LL Bean. Too bad our commitments wouldn't let us stay longer: it's a very restful campground. And dogs are welcome as well. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
The Campground was very clean and quite. The pool was closed for repairs. There is no playground for the kids. There are some sights where tight for larger rigs. The staff was kind and helpful. The restrooms were clean but needed some TLC. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very nice, clean and very quiet campground. Sites are on the small side. Lacks a playground for children. Pool was out of order while we were there. The pool appeared to be of residential quality. We may camp here if in the area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a very nice campground. Our site did not have a sewer hookup, but there is a dump site available. There is lots of shade and it's an easy in and out. They only had two washers and one dryer working. In the morning, they delivered the newspaper. Nice touch! You must go on the tour of the "Desert of Maine." Very interesting information. And, of course, LL Bean's and other factory outlets are just a few miles away. This is a good campground to do the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a really interesting spot. It is a great location for exploring Freeport & Portland. It is also on the Desert of Maine - yes, a real desert. They offer tours of the desert at a discounted rate for campground guests. The owners are the best. They work very hard and the place shows it. The owner is going to fence in a portion of the park for a dog run with agility obstacles. They also are trying to get cable installed. It is a very quiet, lush spot. We would definitely come back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Overall nice little campground, Staff very helpful. Little tough if you have a large unit. They do have some sites for large units ( >35' ) these sites are in a open area near the store. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice campground with friendly owners and staff. Very helpful in directing one to area interests. Unique to see desert in Maine. This is off season, but I would imagine in peak season sites are pretty crowded. While we are in a pull through it is designated as two sites. If you are into chocolate you definitely go to Scarbough and see the 1700 lb moose made of chocolate, but be forewarned you will part with a few bucks if you purchase any of the chocolate. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a very friendly, quiet park in a unique location. We considered it one of the nicer experiences on our trip. The owners have made an effort to make the park enjoyable for all guests. The grounds and the pool were very clean. Although our site did not have sewer, we found the dump station a convenient stop on the way out of the park. We enjoyed walking through the dunes, and our grandson enjoyed hunting for "gem stones". The drive to Freeport is short so we were able to run into town for dinner. We camped here in a Motorhome.
In the woods at the "Desert of Maine" attraction of nature trails, an unusual sand desert of 47 acres. Big rig access at only a few sites - call ahead and verify. Many sites have no sewer hookup. Lovely shaded, wooded sites for smaller RV's. Great location right off 295 in Freeport, very friendly help. Lots of things to see easily accessible from here. Quiet, scenic, natural type campground, clean and well-kept. Desert is quite interesting to visit. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great place. Very quiet. You'd never guess that you were only 5 minutes away from one of the premier outlet shopping areas in Maine. Ocean on three sides. All sites are either ocean front or a good view. Large sites and large grassy areas between sites and ocean. Very few seasonals. Lots of elbow room. The only thing I missed was a sewer hook up but they do have a dump station and pumping service. Nice, friendly owners. They
escort you to your site and help guide you while backing in. Very thoughtful. No playground equipment so kids will get bored rather quickly. Close to L.L. Beans. We camped here in a camper.
This was a "do-able" campground. Small campground with mainly seasonal residents. Only 3-4 sites were accessible for motorhomes. Lots of standing water in sites and roads when it rains. Close to downtown Freeport and easy on-off from interstate. Owners very helpful and friendly. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice, quiet campground. Mostly seasonal residents with mostly nicely maintained sites. This campground had a friendly, open feel to it - not sure exactly why. We were quite comfortable here. Easy access for our 39' fifth wheel, but watch for possibly low branches on the main road getting to the campground (we were close to several, but we are 13'6" tall). We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice and quiet. Long pull through with lots of space between sites. Very friendly people. The owner provided lots of area information and we were invited to the evening social hour. Pool available. This is an adult community. Most are long term and seasonal. Only a couple transient sites available. Dirt/gravel roads. Looks like the owner is working to add a few more sites. 2 miles to Freeport for good food and shopping. Cable and internet no longer available so that makes this place a little too expensive. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We love this small campground -- this was our third visit -- a good base to go spend your money at LL Bean and the many outlets in the area. Wonderful, friendly people -- the manager and her team make you feel right at home. We like to request the overflow space in front of the office -- water and electric (50 amp) only, but the rest rooms and showers are spotless and only a few steps away, with lots of little amenities for guests. Very nice small laundry room at $1.75 per wash or dry. Not many transient spaces here, mostly friendly seasonals -- call in advance if possible. We will be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very friendly office. We had a large level pull through site with full hookups. This is a small RV park with mostly seasonal spots. It is advisable to make a reservation. They let you park in front of the office used as an overflow space. Very convenient for Freeport shopping. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Paved entrance, with gravel and dirt interior roads which are bumpy. A retired couple owns and runs the campground. Site mostly dirt, level and long. Good for satellite. A WiFi hotspot. Has the appearance of an older campground. A good location for shopping in Freeport. Not far from Brunswick and Lisbon Falls, home of the iconic Moxie Museum. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Quiet campground with friendly staff. They seemed to still be shaking off winter with a kind of half open feel to the campground (including the "Heated Pool"). I would go back again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park with friendly owner. 2 1/2 miles from LL Bean. WiFi available in office. 2 night minimum stay - they are strict about it. Most of their business seems to come from monthly/permanent folks. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The location is very good. Close to shopping in Freeport. The campground is sandy and isn't well manicured. It still looks under construction. They do have cable. Our site wasn't very level and was very sandy. There are probably better options in Freeport. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Campground has potential but appears to be stuck in a construction/developement stage. Sites are large but mostly sandy. Idle equipment scattered around the campground is an eyesore. Reception was friendly and professional. Appears to be primarily a seasonal campground with a few overnighter sites. We camped here in a Motorhome.
In 2003, we were so impressed with the campground owners and their +/- 40 acre property that we returned in 2004 for our second season. It is hard to believe that this spacious campground only offers 23 RV sites with so much room to roam. No
crowding here and DataStorm Satellites will appreciate the beautiful hillside and shade trees not interfering with their signals. BIG RIGS will enjoy the maneuverability and 50-amp full hook-ups with ample power! Our rig is 62' connected and we have plenty of room for slide-outs on both sides and plenty of space between our hauler and fifth wheel trailer. A seasonal camper who resides in the park May - Oct purchased a brand new Park Model. This is a nice option for others to consider for seasonal camping. Next year Freeport Village Campground owners plan to expand to a total of 30 campsites, adding 8 more campers that are seasonal for a great price of only $2500 plus electric monitored via meters! The entire campground will include basic cable TV service at every site. It was wonderful to meet so many new faces this year and we enjoyed seeing familiar friends from 2003 that stayed in touch. Somehow, campers seem to agree that Freeport Village Campground is a place that lightens your load while you fill your heart with love and overflow your soul with laughter. Maine's beauty beckons you to return year after year. The rocky shorelines, lighthouses, freshest seafood, fishing villages, State Parks, vibrant fall foliage, and hidden treasures take more than a season to explore. Next year we will discover more than before. Campers took day trips to Foxwood Casino, New Hampshire, Wells; Ogunquit - Perkins Cove Marginal Way - attended Playhouse Theater, Portland - Comedy Connection Show, Millinocket, July 4th lobster dinner and Bingo at Freeport Village Campground, and much, much more! Several of us took advantage of the opportunity to learn Quilting taught by one of the seasonal campers who is extremely talented and has 30 prize quilts to prove it, she patiently volunteered to teach hands on patchwork, and various quilting aspects until each camper's bed spread quilts as large as a king size projects were complete. The campground owner finished her first quilt, then immediately started and finished another one, both machine quilted, and now she has her favorite blue and white queen sized bedspread ready for hand tying yarn during her winter stay in Florida. The amazing thing is how she worked diligently between all the camper greetings, reservation phone calls, pond fish feedings, and Sunday dinner preparations for the campers. Her husband finished a lovely cabinet for storing the quilt materials and sewing machines in the recreation room for the campers to share with her. He played with his dozer - expanding the number of campsites to meet the demand, and still found time to play a little golf with the campers. This campground has a community feel to it and we heard many campers this year say they changed their plans to stay longer because they loved it here, just as we do - including our 6-year old golden retriever. Her warmth from her heart and her kitchen keeps all of us coming back year after year.See you in 2005! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

Stayed from June 3, 2003 - November 1, 2003 with our Golden Retriever. Campers were conservative to Million Dollar Coaches. Very unique experience with Sunday night dinners and everyone treated as family - Rita & Hal the owners and operators create a down to earth homey atmosphere. It's not a job, if it was they would retire! They run the campground because they love camping and meeting new friends. They are seasonal May 15 - Oct 31 and head south to Florida for the winter. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! We loved everything about our stay here from the Lobster Bake to the spacious sites with a variety of styles from meadow to bay to forest. Friendly staff. Kayak rentals. Farm animals you can visit!! The doors to the main restrooms should be shut. It lets in a ton of bugs in the toilet and shower areas. Near the sites are only pit toilets: which might be a turn off for some. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Camping is mostly around the periphery of a big, working farm and as such is charming for those who want this experience. The premium water-view sites don't have electric and many are more pop-top and tent oriented. We did fine Site #170 and #177 probably has the best view. I wouldn't recommend Recompense for anything much over 30 foot RV. Again no electricity in the water view sites. Showers are clean and modern but cost $1.00 for 10 minutes. Wireless is limited directly from of the Camp Office but works fine there. Cell reception was adequate. The peace, quite, and cool evening breeze was appreciated. We would certainly camp here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a very nice camping area. There are a variety of site options form ocean view, to wooded, or in a field. Our site was very level and easy to back into. The staff is friendly and accommodating. This campground is part of a working farm and has a barn that you are able to visit at any time. One down side is the dump site is a little tight to get into. Check out their website as they run several specials throughout the summer. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This campground has friendly staff that work at the office. However, this campground is not big rig friendly. The dirt roads are narrow with pot-holes and branches hanging low. We have a fifth wheel and it was difficult to maneuver in this campground. The dumping station would be more accessible if it was a pull through. Instead, you must back-up after emptying the tanks. Thankfully, there were no others waiting to use the dump station. This is a quiet campground if that is your priority. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It looks like a campground in the middle of a farmer's field. There are cows in the surrounding fields (no smell though) and a lot of open field to stay in. Most of the sites are along the water at the top of a hill so there are trees for shade. The showers are a bit on the small side but water is hot and plenty. As a note the office closes very early and seems to run mainly on a honor system for payments. Very nice and would stay there again (we have stayed in both 2005 and 2007). We camped here in a Tent.
