Jun 2014 - $36.00
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

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

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

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. - SargeW

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. - Jimstone

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. - gsnakehill

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

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

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

Loves the fresh lobster at $6.95/lb. Had it cooked with corn on the cob,and potatoes. The staff went above & beyond. We had to leave early and did get a refund for the entire amount. The proximity to LL Bean made it very attractive too. The site was fine for a couple of days. - Barbara Smith

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

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

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 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

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

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
