Nice quiet park about one mile from the Pemaquid Point Lighthouse, which is obviously located on the ocean. Wooded campsites with fire rings and a playground for the kids. The park is cleaned and maintained daily. We have stayed here several times on our trips to Maine. - Mike DiRenzo

If you like a laid back, quiet setting this campground is for you. This is a small campground with very friendly staff. We were amazed at how quiet it was, we stayed 4 nights and never heard anyone camping around us. The nearby shops, kayaking, seafood, lighthouse, historic fort and beach were great. The only downside was limited WiFi (at office only) and the small number of sites with sewer. Most sites are smallish with limited privacy but ours was fantastic. - Maineiac

High price for what you get. I had requested full hook-ups when I reserved but was told no sewer sites were available when we checked in. Since they don't take a deposit or confirm reservations, we had no choice but to take a site with water and electric. We had no AT&T phone or internet service, wi-if at office only. No cable TV and satellite was blocked by trees. Our site was mainly dirt and grass, little gravel. The campground is very dusty. There are a lot of old campers in poor repair. We stayed for 2 nights and left a day early. - Bunci

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. - BobbyG2016

We had spacious level pads in the open. There were numerous sections to the campground that included treed areas and sites by the water. - Dragoon

Large park with very nice sites with bushes and trees around.
Staff was pleasant and efficient.
We would stay here again. Highly recommend this park. - DCM/JMB

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

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

Just a relaxing campground that we will return to when we're in this area again. Full hookups. Shaded on one side of the campground. Sweeping view from your campsite. Newspaper delivery to campsite a luxury . - Airstream 25

Beautiful setting. The sites are tiered and hard to pull out of. Had to back up plus it rained so it was very muddy. The women running the campground are awesome. We "heard" that they are revamping their sites to be more accommodating. The pictures on their web page are a tad deceiving. But still awesome. - Ohioan

This was possibly the most beautiful campsite we have ever had. It was huge with a wide open view of the tidal river. Lots of birds in the patches of trees and bushes left standing between sites. This campground is quiet (we were the only people there for most of our stay). Nearly all the sites are large and grassy. You would likely have problems pulling out if it had rained a lot. There is not much to do and pre-teens and teens would likely be bored but it would be fine with small children. We plan on returning. - sbradley

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

Right on a large tidal bay, great for shallow swimming (high tide) or clam digging or walks (low tide), sandy beach adjacent. Very scenic area. Easy to find with directions from campground. Toilets are portapotties scattered throughout campground. Ocean sites are in large field area with no sewer connections, but honey wagon is available and dump site near entrance. Campground is not particularly well kept although the owners are very nice and helpful. Lots of room for kids to wander and play. Excellent lobsters (cooked or uncooked) available delivered to your campsite by local lobster people. Exceptionally buggy (mosquitoes and green head flies) when we were there in late July. Just south of Bath. Overall the campground is spacious in general, outstanding scenic views, great location, but needs basic maintenance and groundskeeping. We suffered a bad black ant infestation at our site, which, with the mosquitoes and flies, made our visit a bit unpleasant overall. - ChamberlainCourt

This is an awesome location for kayaking and boating. The sounds and smells of the ocean are really just only a stone’s throw away. Tidal bay is sandy not muddy allowing you to walk out during low tide. The sites are grassy and some are level. The campground has no frills other than the location. Owners are very nice and they will di clams for you upon request. We stayed on the Molly Point and had fantastic waterfront views. - Monika

We stayed at Meadobrook because it was close to what we were doing. It' location is excellent. We didn't spend much time at the park.All the staff were friendly and they had a place at the park that cooks fresh lobsters every night and you could get hot coffee and breakfast sandwiches in the morning. It's not a real pretty park and our site wasn't very level but it was spacious. We would probably stay there again if we visited the area. - Lefty and Donna Barba

Stayed here last minute over Labor Day weekend. Great location near beautiful scenery and beaches. Bath is a cute little town. Employees were awesome. Really went above and beyond, especially helping us with technical issues with our pop up. The lobster dinner was amazing, and such a nice treat. Amenities are rustic. But when camping, I don't expect much. Pool was nice and clean. My only complaint is that the sites are small and need to be graded a bit better. Overall great place for the money. - Kirsten Fischer

Large private campground, big-rig area on loop w/pretty tight spaces, all open with gravel spaces (mostly 'seasonal' folks); full hookups; tenters & smaller spaces in trees; optional lobster/clam dinner cooked on site every evening; small pool; recreation hall; large campfire & local entertainment most weekends; nice family spot. - North Texas DJC

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

To be honest, I have mixed feelings about writing this review, because Sandy Shores is a hidden gem that very few people know about and because I don't want to tell anyone it's here so I can keep it to myself. Let me begin by saying that this is a private Co-op park but some of the individual site owners have opened it to seasonal and monthly renters. The rate shown is the seasonal rate divided by 180 days. The park operates from the beginning of May through the end of October. It's located on South Pond which is an approximate 600 acre fresh water lake. There is a boat ramp and dock. The roads in the park are crushed stone and the sites are large and grassy with plenty of shade trees. There are two bath houses with restrooms that are lightly used and very clean. There are also two clean laundry rooms with very reasonably priced machines. The swimming pool opens as soon as the cool Maine spring permits. You can also play horseshoes, shuffleboard or tennis. There is a clubhouse that contains a full kitchen, a game room and library exchange. Yes, the park abuts a railroad spur. The train comes by about once each week during the day to drop off and pickup 2-3 bulk cars at the concrete plant. It is very quiet here. This is Mid-Coast Maine where there is plenty to see and do. There are a minimum of 6 lighthouses to visit within 1 hour of the park. Any number of state parks close by, 4 miles to groceries and gas, 1.5 miles to a farm stand and fresh fish is everywhere. There is a reason they call this vacation land. Shh, try not to tell anyone... please. - freckles1219

Our all time favorite campground. Perfect if you like quiet and the most beautiful sunrises and night sky ever. Counted 9 satellites in one hour last night. Not really a place for kids although there is a pool and there is no store. WiFi is ok but no tv. Weekly stays minimum but lots to do in the area and plenty of resources nearby in Rockland. - Alan S

My wife and I have been camping for 20 years, starting with tent to pop-up to hybrid and finally graduating to large travel trailer, and most of the joys we have experienced have been in the friendly people we have encountered. However, the Saltwater Farms Campground was, without a doubt, the most unwelcoming and unfriendly campground that we have ever visited. The staff went far beyond being unfriendly -- they were downright rude. In addition, the seasonal campers there acted as though we were intruders. We spent more money to stay at this campground than we have ever spent anywhere, yet we had the most unpleasant experience we've ever had at any campground anywhere.
This all goes beyond the fact that the "amenities" (and I do use this term loosely) were minimal to non-existent. For example, the campground advertises that they have WIFI, however, you'll need some luck on your side to get it to work since it didn't work about 90% of the time. Try not to use your microwave and AC at the same time. Also, we were told that we would probably be able to get 2 over-the-air TV stations, however, again, no such luck. So, notwithstanding having no internet and no television (yet spending $378 to stay here for a week), this still would have been acceptable in a campground that made us feel even a little bit welcome. However, this campground did not.
This is the first campground review we have given, however, we felt compelled to give it this time as this campground was such a major disappointment to say the least. We would not recommend it to anyone who enjoys a friendly atmosphere in a campground. - Washington Hogwallop

We stayed here to attend the nearby Rockland Lobster Festival. Our spot was closest to the river, so our views were great - unobstructed, wide-open views of the river in the distance. WiFi was pretty much unusable. Our AT&T cell service also was marginal (1 or 2 bars of 3G), but that's nothing that the RV park can do anything about. There is a long gravel & dirt access road in and out of the park, which means that our car was always coated in a layer of dust, and the park won't let you wash your rig or car, so you've been warned. No cable TV to my recollection, but we could pull in a couple of stations over-the-air. It was a peaceful setting, just nothing special. - coffeetime
