Camped in site 114 in the open field. It was a pull through site within 1.5 in of being level side to side. It had full hookups including cable and wifi. Wifi was easy to connect and reasonably fast. Lots of cable channels inclung all major networks.

Sit had an above ground patio with picnic table. Could walk right out of trailer to patio.

Has laundromat and 2$ shuttle to downtown. Grocery shopping and drugstore within 5 miles. A little farther to harbor. They are cash only so bring lots. Pet friendly. We camped at Shore Hills Campground and RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Shore Hills Campground had about 150 sites, all of which are dirt/gravel. Most of the roads are the same so if it rains, some parts can get pretty muddy. I think that we were in a newer loop, as the sites were a little bigger, and some had wood deck patios next to the parking pads. They have about 20 pull through sites in the loop that are advertised as "No rig too big", and they are about 100' long. We had a back in site with patio and fire pit. There is also a picnic table on the deck. Not all sites are full hook up though, some closer to the water are W&E only. We paid $53 a night for our site, and even though we stayed for a week, there was no break on the daily fee. One notable issue though, they do not accept any electronic payments. Cash or check only. The utilities at the sites worked well and were placed conveniently. The restroom facilities though older were clean. However they are NOT handicapped accessible. Raised entry's at the doors and narrow doors would be difficult to navigate. Their showers are also pay showers, like .50 for three minutes. They offered WiFi, but our Verizon air card worked OK. They did have a nice big dog yard for off leash dogs. There is a lake at the campground, but the older wooded sites are on quite an incline and may be difficult to navigate if you have any mobility issues. The nice part about this campground is that we were only a few miles from Boothbay proper and we made several trips in to various shops, stores, and restaurants. I would stay at this campground again. We camped at Shore Hills Campground and RV Park in a Motorhome.

This was the best RV park I encountered on a road trip from Texas to Maine and back! Helpful and friendly staff, nice campsites among the trees, just off the highway but without significant traffic noise, and just 3 miles from Boothbay Harbor. They even operate a free shuttle into Boothbay Harbor. The facilities were very good, including a 'rec room' with good live music on Saturday night! If I am ever in the area again, this will definitely be home base. We camped at Shore Hills Campground and RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed in this campground the second week of September. It is a commercial campground catering to the Maine Costal area. It was clean, set up for everything from the really big rigs right down to tent camping. The sites were generally level and large enough to be easy to get into and out of. 30 amp power was adequate. No sewers in our area. It was very well run and the people working for the CG were friendly and efficient. We camped at Shore Hills Campground and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Boothbay, Maine - Shore Hills Campground and RV Park - cost for just water and electricity $53. $50 deposit to hold your site and total of 149 sites Reservations recommended in the summer.

This campground was recommended by a number of campers so we thought we would try it for one night. There are full hookups sites with 50 amp/ w & e sites on the waterfront/ tent sites/ 30 amp sites/ cable in some sites/cabin rental sites/ 131 in total. The campground overlooks the water in the Boothbay area. We had a w & e site in the Riverside area which was very nice overlooking the bay. We were here on a Tuesday night in late September so reservations not needed. Bathhouse was very clean with showers ($). Pets are allowed. Deposits are non-refundable. They have a shuttle bus to Boothbay Harbor. There is a camp store which has fire wood, ice, propane, supplies and gifts. Sites are close together depending on the loop you are in. Nice campground with easy checkin and if you want to tour the Boothbay area of Maine with its restaurants and island ferries it is a very convenient stopover. We camped at Shore Hills Campground and RV Park in a Motorhome.

This was our first time in Maine. Shore Hills Campground is located just off ME-27. Easy to get to and easy to get in and out. Central enough to visit a lot of locations and most are less than an hour away. The area for the big rigs is large and most sites are flat. Each site has a picnic table, all seem to be very sturdy, there is a fire ring and trash can at each site. They come around and pick it up for you. There is not a lot of room between sites on the pull thrus. Looks like more distance between sites in the back ins. Some of the back in spot have a small wooden patio that seem very nice. The WiFi is open and not secure, but it is a good signal and we were able to use it all week with no problems. The boat ride to Monhegan Island is a must. The Island is beautiful. Hike to the lighthouse then to Whitehead. The view is unbelievable. I would recommend Shore Hills to anyone. The area is very nice and the park is well maintained.

Lovely park. Staff (all experienced campers) could not be more helpful or friendly. Easy access for the largest motor coaches. Sites are mostly level and large and you have a choice of shade or sun. Good 50 amp service, great water pressure, dependable Wi-Fi and great cable TV service. Bathrooms and laundry facilities are always spotless. Camp is conveniently located for exploring all of coastal Maine. Shore Hills also offers a shuttle service to and from Boothbay Harbor which is invaluable due to the parking issues in town. We enjoyed our stay so much we expect to come back for the whole season next year. We camped at Shore Hills Campground and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Endless dining opportunities nearby. You can even walk from the camp to the best place to buy fresh lobster. Recommend the boat excursion from Boothbay Harbor out to Monhegan Island which has the highest oceanfront cliffs in Maine. Spectacular! The clam bake on Cabbage Island is also a must.

A nice park to hang out, about a ten minute drive north of Boothbay Harbor. All of the class A's & large 5th wheels are directed to the north section of the park with very spacious back-ins & pull-thrus. Mgt. is very nice and accomodating. The area is beautiful with lots of places to go & see & I have to say a lot less crowded/busy than the Bar Harbor area. Would stay here again. All utilities were good, except wifi was a little sketchy from time to time. Nice park, but maybe a little pricey for the value. We camped at Shore Hills Campground and RV Park in a Motorhome.

This was our 2nd visit to this terrific rv park. I just love this park and the Boothbay area. We stay in the open section of the park. Sites are spacious and open. Big rig friendly. The other sections are woody; like a state park. Those sites are also very spacious and the setting is beautiful, but just too dark for me. Staff is friendly & efficient. We hope to return in October. We camped at Shore Hills Campground and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This park was excellent. We stayed 4 nights on site 121 while attending a wedding nearby. The staff was super helpful and incredibly friendly and accommodating. The lots were clean and very well cared for with a trash receptacle at every site so we didn't have to lug trash to a dumpster. Hookups were in good shape, electrical was great. Site was pretty level (gravel). We were in a pull through area but walked the CG a few times and enjoyed walking out onto the island which was very secluded and quiet and we watched Ospreys catching fish and blue heron feeding. The Wifi was excellent at our site. Site 121 was nice as most of the pull throughs were completely in the open, but that site has morning sun, but shaded by a row of trees in the afternoon. The pull throughs have a decent lawn area but are closer than most of the back ins, but not so close you can pass a cup of sugar from your slideout to a neighbor like some CG's. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Shore Hills Campground and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Boothbay Harbor is a beautiful and quaint Maine coastal town. Have a meal at the "Boathouse" downtown and sit on the open deck on 3rd floor and enjoy the harbor view while enjoying their peach sangria. Lots of interesting shops to visit down town Boothbay Harbor. The Botanical Gardens are also not to be missed! Whale watch tours are available. Take a ride south to Southport Island for some kodak moments too.
