17 RV Parks near Boothbay, Maine
Sep 2017 - $53.00
Like others confirm, this CG has a nice old time feel to it. Mostly because it is. We would stay here again, partly because it was nice and convenient and partly because there aren't many choices near Boothbay. We couldn't get our 43-foot MH level on site 124 but the owners moved us to 120 which was excellent and even had a new concrete patio. We did see several back in sites that were not level and occupants had to use wood or pads to level. The sites are fairly close together but have trashcans at each end. Water, electric and sewer were just fine. You can only pay by check or cash and when you call, you will be told to mail a deposit check of $50. We were told our reservation will be held until the check arrives. Once they received the check, they emailed us a confirmation. There is $10 deposit for gate card. Bath houses are old but clean. Didn't use but saw there was a fee for shower. Cable was excellent, the wifi was good and our AT&T service was too. A staff member continuously rides through the campground on a golf cart. Got the impression he is a "monitor" of activity, open spaces and any potential rule breakers. We did get a note on our MH for exceeding the 10 MPH speed limit one day, but that kind of added to the charm. The "upper sites" are pretty wide open from trees for good satellite reception, plenty long, but the sites closest to the road definitely have noise as it is the only direct route in and out of Boothbay. - McGarrert50

We really enjoy staying here. It's quiet, the staff is friendly and helpful. The restrooms and showers are clean. No WiFi but our cell phone reception was good. This was our second visit here and we plan to visit again next year. We stayed in our motorhome. - docsouce

Shore Hills is a very nice campground with good big rig access. This is the second time we have stayed in the Booth Bay area and we found this campground well situated for points east of Wiscasset. If you go west on a regular basis you can get caught up in traffic going into Wiscasset. We stayed in the section closer to the road but found very little noise from the highway at night. There are a number of sites with a raised deck and picnic table. We parked a little too close to the deck as I thought it would be convenient to step out right onto the deck. What I did not allow for was the slide, which ended up taking close to a third of the deck space. The utilities are well located and there is a garbage bin on each site. Our site was a pull through with plenty of room for a tow. Did not really use the wifi as we use an ATT hot spot which worked well. This area is satellite friendly but we ended up using the cable which is very good. Had an initial problem with the cable connection as it was missing the male end. A visit to the office immediately rectified the problem. - Our V World

This is a rural campground on Southport Island just south of Boothbay Harbor. It does stretch the limits of "big rig friendly" and they don't have sites for anything larger than our 40' MH. The roads and sites are gravel and some people may find them challenging. The views from some of the sites are exquisite but those are rented on a seasonal basis. The overnight sites have no views but the beach is just a short walk. There are picnic tables and chairs at the beach as well as rental kayaks. Verizon 4G service is excellent. The owner is friendly as are the office staff. - docj

I had read reviews about the owner that concerned me. but he was very pleasant and helpful. We were supposed to be stay for 2 weeks but left early because of Irene. It is a beautiful and clean campground. The coast of Maine is spectacular. - mzc

This is a great campground if you are looking to purely camp. There aren't any activities, no pool. But the views from down at the beach can't be priced. And being able to get lobster right at the campground was the best. My husband and I would certainly return the next time we get to Maine. - Hummings102

This campground is very much like a good state campground. Lots of trees (well trimmed),and generous size sites. There are several full hookup sites, but most are water and electric. It was about half full when we were here. Can't understand why, its a good location and nice restful campground. Many of the Maine state highways in this area are in poor repair. - mroswell

Note: We did not stay here, but would have liked to. We are offering a warning to those who are considering staying here. The issue is that the power pedestals are at the front of the site. We have a 34' travel trailer with a 25' power cord that plugs into the rear of the trailer. Most of the available sites would not have worked for us because our power cord would not have reached from the pedestal to the rear of the trailer. There was one available site that may have worked for us, but we decided to look elsewhere. The woman we met was very nice and helpful, and we felt bad for leaving. - Merlinmurph

I arrived 2 days after the season opening and the office was closed but was left a map to find my reserved site. Unfortunately the site number markers were not out yet so I had a difficult time finding my site. They were put out the next morning :-). Very quiet campground, Manager/Owner Emily was very nice, Not all sites have 50 amp and only one site has a sewer connection, so if you are there for an extended period, you will have to use their dump station or honey wagon on Wednesday or Sunday; many sites have trees surrounding the area so if you have a roof satellite you will have a hard time getting reception. I found a site where I didn't have trouble getting reception. There wasn't wifi while I was there but was told it was being connected in the next week. This campground is within 10 miles to many local specialities, shops, outstanding lobster shacks, etc. I definitely would stay here again as long as it isn't over 4 days or so. - nyrngrz

Yes, it's expensive, so it's up to you whether it's worth it or not. We paid $75 for our site and loved it. The women that run the place are very friendly and helpful. Great to deal with, and their dogs are really nice pooches. The campground is geared mostly for tents, pop-ups and small trailers. Our 34' TT was on the large side, but there were a few sites that could accommodate us. Most of the sites are very spacious, especially compared to other private parks, which is why you're paying more. There are some really nice tent sites that are all by themselves. The campground is built on a small hill that rolls down to the marsh and the bay. Most of the sites have spectacular views of the marsh/bay, where you'll see deer, eagles, osprey, etc. What we really like about the campground is that they have kept it rustic, and keep it very well-maintained. There is a dirt road all around that is perfectly smooth. The bathroom/shower building is very simple, yet spotless. There is a saltwater pool (very nice), tennis courts, rec building, canoes and kayaks to rent (watch the tide). Some sites have no power, some 15A, and a few have 30A. Wi-fi at the office only is good, and Verizon service was good. There's a supermarket right around the corner along with other shopping. We hit the Montsweag Roadhouse for drinks - great place. Dogs are allowed. We were in site 17 once (shady). Easy getting in. Getting out took a few twists and pulling into site NN. Good thing there was a small MH there that was pulled up enough to give me some maneuvering room. We were in site RB, too (sunny). Again, getting in was easy, getting out required pulling into a site across from us. One thing that rubbed us was the guest fees. We had friends stay with us one night with their daughter, so that was another $30. We understand the need for guest fees, but $10 apiece was a bit much. There is a great campground to hang out all day in and never leave. - Merlinmurph

We have been staying here for approx 9yrs. You are always greeted like family by the owners. They are truly happy to see you and want you to enjoy every minute of your stay. It's quiet, clean and the views are breathtaking. Pet friendly and serene. Chewonki is our "happy place" and we choose not to go anywhere else when we camp. Once you try it, you'll want to come back, I promise! - Erinne Brown

After a horrible experience at a nearby campground we where lucky to find Chewonki Campground. It is a little more expensive and worth every penny. The owners 2 sisters could not have been nicer and made us feel like we were home, they even offered us leftovers for dinner.
The sites are huge and private with amazing views, we had a hard time picking a site. It was quiet and very relaxing. We have already booked another stay next month. Our favorite part was the salt water fed pool. Very clean well maintained, the nicest and most private camp ground we have ever stayed in. Its a must you will not be disappointed. - B Crossman

Pull IN site, so the view is in. All good utilities (except water stained our porcelain). Even internet access is good! Satellite friendly. Nothing to block our view our the bay. Lobster, ready to eat, delivered to our coach at the most amazing prices, you won't believe if you aren't a local! Clamming at low tide, right out your front door. So much to see and this is a great base. You need at LEAST a week! - Journey On

Looks run down driving in. Bathrooms were never cleaned while we were there and dirty. You had to drive to the bathrooms and shower, unless you wanted to use a potty, which was dirty. The showers and baths were back on the main road coming in and only one of the two showers had hot water. There were three or four nice ocean sites you could face and not have to look at the rest of the park. Nice ocean views, when the tide came in and out. - Reggie Butts
Aug 2008 - $57.00
On the positive side, the campground has a beautiful view of and is on Sagadahoc Bay, not the ocean. At low tide, you can walk out for several hundred yards on the bay's sandy floor and dig for clams or shell hunt. A lot of natural beauty to behold. The owner/wife was friendly, helpful and informative. A very nice lady. Fresh lobster & clams are delivered to your site on order. About 2 miles from Reid State Park which has four (4) great beaches. A great base for exploring up and down the coast as we did. Easy drive to Acadia National Park. On the negative, the place was shoddy at best. The bath house remained filthy for our entire 7 day stay. The bath house trash cans were emptied once. Trash on the floor. The toilets did not function correctly and were hard to flush, which often resulted in finding a full, over flowed toilet. The Port-a-potty at the bay side campground needs to be pumped out more than once a week, or they need to add another one. The dump station leaves a lot to be desired as well. The campground seemed just plain run down. The owner/husband leaves a lot to be desired as a campground host/owner. Not very pleasant and always seemed to be in a bad mood. Constantly complaining about the costs & effort involved with running a campground. Then he had the audacity to claim they were the highest priced campground around. This could be a great campground and has a lot of potential, but I would be hard pressed to return. - Neff 32S
Sep 2017 - $25.00
This campground has the advantage to accept Passport America and to be located in one of the most beautiful peninsulas of Maine. The rate above reflects PA discount, which is not available July-August. Also, to get the discount you cannot make a reservation, must pay cash and accept to move every 3 days, or whenever someone else has a reservation on the site you're on. In one 2-week and one 1-week stays four times we were told that other campers had reserved the site, so they made us move. When I suggested that the campground was almost empty and they could move the reservation to a different site, they came up with all kinds of excuses. Needless to say we felt like second class citizens. Also, no one came on our previous sites, so we moved for nothing.
Besides that small frustration, it was wonderful to smell the ocean air all the time, to be in an amazing location for so little money, to have lobster available every evening for as little as $6.99 / lb, to have a great laundry room, decent bathrooms, decent wifi, very nice fellow campers and, overall helpful staff. The sites are mostly sandy, i.e. lots of dirt inside the motorhome and the roads to the campground quite narrow and winding, but not too bad. - AandWK

We stayed here for over three months because of a family illness. We cannot say enough in praise of how accommodating the owners were for us - we never knew week to week how long we would need a site, but they stood by us without question throughout our time there. We did not need a lot of added service, but when we did there was never an issue in getting their help. Other reviewers have spoken eloquently of the lobster dinners - we won't try to expand on that, other than to say they were fantastic and an unequaled value. Though our sites were not paved, they were comfortable and the owners made sure we had full hook-ups for the entire stay. And that area of Maine is worth a visit by any RVer. If you judge a campground by the number of concrete slabs they have and how varied the menu is in their restaurant, you won't score Meadowbrook as high as we have. But if you judge them by how hard they work to make your stay a good one and whether or not the opportunity is there to enjoy your visit no matter what the circumstances, we believe you will not be disappointed at all. (Rate quoted above reflects an extended stay). - ClassOf64

What makes this rv park good, is the evening dinners , available after 5 pm every day..in our case lobster dinners at very reasonable prices. you get to chose your lobster from the holding sea water area. Toilet and showers are clean, a bit on the older side. Office staff is very friendly..and helpful. We were there at beginning of the season, in May, not too many campers there at this time and a bit on the cold side. It is a ways from the main roads..but worth it. They specialize also in Clam Chowder with Clams, Fish and Shrimp. They also have corn on the cob and baked potato on the menu. Office refrigerator has lots of beer and wine selections for your dinner. Excellent value for your money at this campground, especially if you get a discount, like we did for Passport America. - Joe O

Lake Pemaquid CG is a huge place with many features: beaches, boathouses, a store, playgrounds, etc. It is very family-friendly and there were lots of kids riding around on bikes and playing various games,swimming, eating ice cream, and generally having a good time. The upkeep of the entire facility is so-so. The main paved road is hard to tell from the many dirt roads because the paving is in poor condition. There are lots of trees and some grass but it isn't particularly manicured. The water is lovely and because it isn't the ocean, it is not too cold to swim in.
There are many seasonal campers and they are scattered around in the CG. There are a variety of sites and there's probably one to suit anyone's taste.
There was one area (near us) where a noisy group of seasonal campers seemed to gather every night to have a fire and drink and make way too much noise. This is a beautiful location and probably ideal for families who like outdoor recreation. - virginianola

Very family oriented park. If you don't have kids you won't want to stay here. Free WiFi is only in one building that is locked all the time. Poor AT&T signal. Pool and spa area overrun with kids. - AMM
Aug 2016 - $39.00
This is a huge park as RV parks go. The park is on a lake but the beach is not particularly nice, most campers use the pool for swimming. The playground is very good for the kids by offering unusual activities like a swing bridge and a small zip line. The camp store and snack bar operate well. Since the park is so large, it lacks the personal service that you receive in a smaller park. Weekends are hectic since the park is full, things quiet down some during the week.
The check out is somewhat awkward; you have to stop at the office to receive your deposit on the gate pass and there is no place to pull your rig over to the side. It can cause a bit of a bottle neck.
WI-FI is weak and only available at the rec hall, no cable TV. AT&T is very weak. We were able to obtain satellite TV from our site. We stayed for five days. - Nautilus

This place is a jewel for those who just want to primitive camp in a beautiful environment. We own a 5th wheel but bought a tent just so we could camp there. Beautiful surroundings, nature and clean but rough bath facilities are the only amenities. We camped off season, first come first served. We had a million dollar view, and spent two days kayaking, hiking and just vegging. We met other campers who had been coming to this place since they were children and now come with their own families. The only suggestion that I have for the owners is to update the baths and add a shower or two in the more remote reaches if possible. There are no bad sites. - dklrv

Not for everyone, but we thought it was a slice of heaven. Gorgeous views, peaceful and quiet, good utilities, perfect weather, long beach, friendly neighbors, few mosquitoes, gentle breezes. Currently there are no bathroom/shower facilities and you have to rent for at least a month with cash or check. Strong Verizon signal, but intermittent bandwidth issues. AT&T less strong. All major networks over the air. Most rigs are permanently parked, with nice decks and flower gardens. Not really a place for kids or people who don't like rules intended to keep things pleasant for everyone. - Keeping up with the Joneses

Our actual stay was from June 28, 2014 and then we liked it so much, we added week after week after week until August 9th! This year, we are staying for the entire season, Mid May through October, it was that good!
50 Amp power, good water, high and dry site, neat lawns and a pathway to the pebble beach. This campground is shifting toward seasonal rates, but there still may be some monthly sites available. - oldengine

We were looking for oceanfront camping in Maine. We are glad we found Orr's Island and this campground. The owners and seasonals are friendly and accommodating. The property is beautiful, with grassy sites. You must have a self-contained trailer as there is no bathhouse but all sites have full hookup. You can walk a path to a cove with a dock and swimming area from where you can set out in your kayak. Take a walk around the point and all you'll hear are the lobster boats and seagulls. We feasted on just- caught lobster and steamers. Then there were the sunrises and sunsets. Orr's Island is a jewel and this campground is a great way to experience it. - upstatetrout
