Most of the review of this campground are accurate. Nothing fancy. Gravel roads and campsites. Only a few sites with full hook ups. While not what we would call a resort, it is what I expected. Had we not needed to stay near Belfast to visit my daughter, we never would have stayed here to begin with. If you are looking for a campground near Belfast, this is the best one. The price is simply too expensive for what they offer. We camped at Moorings Oceanfront RV Resort in a Motorhome.

If you want authentic seafood, try Lobster Pound on Rt 1 in Belfast. The most genuine seafood we found. Recommended by the locals.

Sites are pretty tight, roads are narrow and if someone parks a big vehicle across from your site, you might not get it, Roads are dirt, uneven with a few nice pot holes. The road is one way so you have to drive through the whole park if you are parked in the smaller number spaces. The spaces are not long enough for your tow vehicle and the rv so we had to park next door. We camped at Moorings Oceanfront RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This campground was showing some end of season wear. Interior road was gravel and big rig access was fair. Our gravel level site was adequate, we pulled in to the back in site to get a wonderful view of the ocean and beach, this meant that the utilities 30amp plus water were on the wrong side, but no big deal. If you have a motor home choose the back in water front sites as the pull throughs will not afford you a view of the water through your windshield. The campground was very quiet with no road noise at all, no privacy between sites, there were a few shade trees but it did not interfere with satellite reception. We had space for our towed, a picnic table and fire ring. The bathrooms were clean and the laundry had a couple of washers and dryers. As other reviewers have mentioned it was not overly pet friendly, however there were doggie bags and a disposal station. WiFi and cell were good. Food stores, restaurants are close by in Belfast, and plenty of wonderful sightseeing up and down the coast. It's all about the view and we would stay here again. We camped at Moorings Oceanfront RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This small campground's prime asset is its location. It is right on the water with a private beach. We had an electric & water site with a water view. We had a gorgeous view of the water out of the front of our RV. The site was level. The site was of adequate size but I wouldn't call it spacious. We were only steps away from the access to the beach. The owners were friendly and helpful as were the other guests at the park. We were there during the Perseid Meteor Shower and had great views of the sky.

The only slightly negative item I would have is that they are very strict on your pets. There is only one small area behind the office where you are allowed to walk your dogs to do their business. As long as owners of pets clean up after their pets I do not see the need for this restriction. Maybe they have had issues in the past with owners that did not clean up their pets waste.

Even with the concern above, we would definitely return to this campground whenever we travel to Maine in the future. We camped at Moorings Oceanfront RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This "RV Resort" was the most costly of the campgrounds we stayed at during our two week tour of Maine's sea coast.

The camping area had very few trees. Most sites had an ocean view but space on most sites was limited. Our site (#40) had a sewer connection in addition to water and electric. Only 4 of the sites at this campground had sewer connections, the balance had pump out service available in addition to the standard dump station.

This campground sits on a hillside running down from US Highway 1 to the shoreline. There are steps to allow access to the beach area. Excellent area for site seeing and Acadia National Park a short drive away. We camped at Moorings Oceanfront RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Maine's mid-coast seashore, Acadia National Park and the very crowded Bar Harbor area...a tourist magnet.

Maine is all about LOBSTERS and lobster pounds are everywhere. You can buy them live fresh off the boats and cooked for takeout or eat-in...the choice is yours. Lobster rolls can be had everywhere from $7..99 to $15.00 each...many road side stands feature this Maine staple @ 2 for $15. We consumed way too many over our two week stay in Maine.

Happy Campers!

This is a small campground right on the bay in Belfast. There are some sites looking over the Bay and we stayed on one for one night in the Fall. Beautiful views and you can walk out when the tide goes out. Sites have full hookups or just water and electric, but they are close together and not much shade but views are all worth it. There are a number of seasonals here and they said the new manager this year has been doing a great job upgrading the campground. There is a restaurant on the grounds and the food was very good. Restrooms and laundry room were clean. It is expensive - in the off season (fall) we paid $64.80 a night. Easy drive to Acadia National Park from here. We enjoyed our stay and the beautiful sunrise in the morning. The reviews have been very good for this park and that is why we tried it. Seasonals are very friendly and have great ideas on what to do. Check-in was friendly and quick. Nice place on a hill but worth the views! We camped at Moorings Oceanfront RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We have been staying at the Moorings since 2003, missing only one year. For the past few years we have been seasonals. It is under new ownership in 2014 and the forecasts are favorable. We have been RVing for 50 years and motorhoming for 39, and this is our all time favorite spot. The location of the Moorings is its primary claim to fame. You can park (for a slight premium) right on the shore of Penobscot Bay in midcoast Maine. Most of the sites have only 30 amps and a bi-weekly "honey wagon" to handle the sewer, but that's a small price to pay for such a lovely park. There is a fine restaurant on-site. The park slopes toward the ocean offering everyone a wonderful view. The Belfast area offers a wide assortment of activities and excellent food. We camped at Moorings Oceanfront RV Resort in a Motorhome.

It’s a 10 if you can get one of the bottom water front sites. 8 or 9 if you have one up the hill but, even those have water views. Mostly an older crowd but, kids would enjoy the beach. The on-site restaurant (Papa J’s) is great, ate there 3 out of 5 nights. Would have been 4 but, they had a barbeque at the campground on the 4TH of July that had some really good eats. We camped at Moorings Oceanfront RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Wow, what a nice little gem of a park. Very small but the view is amazing! Very quiet, older crowd in mostly motor homes. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. Minimal playground equipment for kids. Would have given a 10 but the Wi-Fi was practically worthless. So slow. Traveled 500+ (nervous) miles to get here but was worth it. First time staying here but will try to return. Had the lobster pizza (yup, lobster pizza!) at the restaurant at park property - fantastic!

Very nice park. A little tight, but enough room to get around. Private beach was awesome and a good restaurant within walking distance. Ocean view was priceless. We would stay here again. We camped at Moorings Oceanfront RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Excellent view of the ocean. Beach at the front of campground and it's easily accessible. Showers were clean with lots of pressure and hot water. Wi-Fi service was excellent. Staff was friendly. Rules indicate no outside structures, remote or attached to the RV, but outside screen rooms and rain canopies were in use all over the campground and certainly helped due to the three days of rainy weather we had while camping here. I did NOT find the outside structures to be an unsightly issue, but a necessary one due to the poor weather conditions. Grounds were well groomed with ample room for large RVs. We camped at Moorings Oceanfront RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Met by friendly office staff with great information. Site was level with a great view of the bay. Bath house was clean and stocked. Very convenient to many points. Only issue was sewer system was up hill which was a problem with our low camper. We camped at Moorings Oceanfront RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

The setting and the view is a 10. There is a great ocean view and easy access to the beach for swimming, beach walking and just relaxing and listening to the waves. The bathrooms and showers are clean and modern. There is only 1 shower which can result in a wait to use the shower. The office staff and work campers were friendly and helpful. The laundry room was adequate. The grounds were well kept. The access roads and parking pads were gravel and reasonably level. The speed bumps were excessive. The Wi-Fi and cable TV worked well. There are no sewer hookups but free pump out service is offered if you stay a week or more. Many sites are suitable for big rigs. The negatives are that 2 activities that were offered and advertised were canceled with short notice and no explanation. Only 1 shower for men and 1 for women for the entire campground. I thought it was rude that they decided to mow the campground on a Saturday afternoon on the busy Labor Day weekend when campers were visiting and relaxing and couldn't hear each other over the roar of the lawn mower. The prices are high considering the limited amenities and canceled activities. If you have a dog be sure it can read as there are signs posted that, "Dogs can't go here." The great view and ocean front setting made it a very pleasant stay but if the owner was more considerate it would have been even better. We camped at Moorings Oceanfront RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
