Advertised as big rig friendly, it is not. The entry road very rough with pot holes and tight turns with low overhanging trees make access undesirable. The dump station available is on a pull through with a sharp turn and a steep hill on exit. - Northern Star 3934

Stayed for 4 days/nights. We had a water site, and it had an awesome view of the lake. No problems with power. No sewer at the lake front sites, but we knew that when we made the reservation. The owner came by and pumped out our holding tank when asked. The pump-out fee was very cheap!
They have an entertainment room that we never visited, but there was often a flurry of children activity during the day.
No problems, and clean facilities. Oh, if you mingle with your neighbors, you might get Lobster for $2.50 a pound.
We would DEFINITELY come back again! Very quiet! - Bob Mac

Owners were really nice. Gave us a site close to the swimming beach and playground. Had our 6 year old granddaughter with us, it was very convenient for her to run over and play. My main complaint with the site is that it was grass, and wet/soggy from recent rains. This made it impossible to use our leveling jacks, even with boards placed underneath. Sites are small, but there was no one in the adjacent sites, so it was okay. - Michigal

This campground has some of the best on-the-lake sites in Maine and a nice beach. But that's where the good features end. Biggest negative were the showers and bathrooms. Stayed one week and bathrooms/showers were too few and very poorly maintained. Clogged toilets, no TP. On a very busy weekend, nothing was cleaned. Access roads would be difficult for larger rigs. Overall poorly maintained and not attractive. Most sites are seasonal with personable campers. I would go again for the lake and sites, provided I had my own shower and toilet, but the lake sites do not have sewer connections. The owner is pleasant and hard working, but appears overwhelmed based upon the conditions of roads, sites and lack of organization and landscaping. The desk person needs training on serving customers and making them feel welcome. Generally would not recommend, compared to many nice CG in Maine. However, in a pinch and without plans to use toilet/shower it can be acceptable. - Robic

Spent 3 nights at this resort. It is an older campground off route 90 in Rockport. Had a pull thru spot. Fairly level. Lots of trees. Nice pool. Rest rooms re very old. However they were clean. No cable tv, got 4 channels over the air. This campground is convenient to the area. It is off route 1 so it is much quieter. I would certainly stay again. - bigdomino

Let me first state you get what you pay for so take that in consideration. Staff is very friendly and eager to help you. 50amp✔ We had site 35 no cable TV , but there was a cable. Upon entering the driveway and seeing a like new RV RESORT SIGN was encouraging. Arriving is 2 different things. One could stretch it and go as far as saying the sign is,= a MISREPRESENTATION. Little to no stone anywhere, drive to site 35 was riddled with potholes, rocks sticking up, mudholes. Site was grass covered, narrow, level where camper sat, but once steps were down it had slope which added a problem since my wife is handicapped with balance issues. Pool is nice but never saw anyone in it. Looks like this campground was frozen in time from the 70's and no one put any money in it. Stone is cheap. A nice coating on the roads and sites adds curb appeal. They nickle and dime you to death. WiFi is extra. Using the dump station is $10 and booking reservation fee $2. The bath houses were clean, however they more deserve the term 'shack', shower stalls are extremely small, water pressure low, stalls may be clean but are stained. I'm NOT sure if any 2 picnic tables matched throughout the camp, but ours was old didn't feel so sturdy. The wood has succumbed to the elements and should be replaced. - 18445Mountainman

New owners took this campground over in 2017. It's a very nice wooded campground yet open spaces. The people checking you in are super friendly and very accommodating. Take you to your site,etc. they also own the other campground on Route 1. This is much quieter and yet still close to the Camden area. Highly recommend. - Ohioan

No services and you must carry your trash out. We stayed in Site 20 right on the lake. This state park is small but very nice. It is about 37 miles east of Augusta right on route 3. There are about ten sites right on the lake and if you have a boat you can tie it right up in front of your site. Restrooms are new like many of the Maine State Parks with individual bathrooms, showers and sink. Nicely done! The State of Maine got a grant to construct these washrooms a couple of years ago and most of their state parks now have really nice ones that are modern. No services here but for an overnight or a week most RV’s can live without it. There is a public picnic area that is very nice with a swimming area next to the campground. Since we were there in September the rates have dropped. We paid as an out of stater $19 but in season it must be close to $25 or higher. It is a good place to stop driving over to Acadia or to stops along the coast! - gsnakehill

An excellent facility. Clean, staff is friendly. Well-wooded, parking our 30' Airstream took 5-10 minutes dealing with the trees. Been before, will come again. Will come again. - dhroberts

Very nice, spacious and somewhat secluded camp sites. Our site was not level which was a bit problematic and OK for us but a larger RV would have had issues fitting in the space. Bathrooms were a 3 to 4 minute walk. The Rangers at the front were very nice & friendly. - Cinzia

Rate includes $5 processing fee for making reservations. Had called park directly and was told to use website. A portion of the sites are 1st come. Sites are selected by size and we found ours generous over the length specified. Some sites have electricity for added cost. Camping fee includes access to auto road to Mt. Battie summit. Most are back-in sites in the woods that are on a fair slope and some may have trouble getting level. Some are in an open meadow. Staff at the gate were excellent, View from the summit over Camden Harbor is stunning. Firewood was $7/bundle and supports the free albeit very slow WiFi. Exiting the State Park headed north can be a challenge with the considerable traffic on Rt 1. Our only negative was the cost for a state park site with no services. - Trailbuddy

Sites were a little narrow, but the walk to the bay viewing area worth it. The hosts offer a lobster bake on Saturday night @ the area and it is wonderful - cooked there @ the site while you meet your fellow rv'ers and enjoy the views! Only disappointment was having to pay $10 to dump even if you stay @ the Park. - Mommajeet

The owners are the most involved and motivated campground hosts we have met. We loved our stay here and know the next time we come it will be even better. As others have said, there are many recent improvements to this campground. The only difficulty we had was that our 30 amp power was pretty weak so our internal protection would disconnect over about 25 amps due to voltage drop. This is a wooded and natural campground, not a resort. They do have a pool but if you are used to resorts then you would probably want to check out Camden Hills. We love this property though because of the clean restrooms, outdoor cedar showers, and beautiful harbor views from the overlook. Our site 56 was good for our 40' rig and was easily leveled. Full tree cover. Verizon coverage good, AT&T unusable. Campground WiFi is strong and additional cost. The benefit is that not everyone there is using it, so it isn't bogged down trying to stream cat videos to every iPhone in the campground. You do actually get what you pay for. - leemhicks

Park is back under private ownership finally! New owners very helpful and very ambitious in plans for improvements. We saw lots of tree work being done and revival of the ocean overlook where lobster bakes were held in the past. Look forward to going back next year. - Maine-iacs

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

We did not have reservations on this Saturday night and managed to get a pull through shaded, grass site, gravel roads. Park was not near full. They did play music in the evening further in the back by the pool area which we enjoyed listening to because it was a nice variety. The staff was cordial. This managed us well for an overnight and got to walk pups around the campground. Cash only. Our site appeared to be spacious because the sites on both sides were vacant. - Sunnie-Wheelhouse
Sep 2017 - $24.00
The owners are very pleasant & accommodating. We were delayed on our arrival date by 2 weeks due to mechanical problems, but they held our site for our late arrival without any fees or penalties. The rate we paid was based on 1 month stay. Lots are large. We were in a 40' motor home with 4 slides. Water, sewer, & 50 amp electric all worked well. Over all the park itself needs some updating & modernization. Laundry is plumbed for cold water only & machines should be replaced. After 1 month they still has not cashed our check! - Biker2

This was one of the only campgrounds that did not raise their rates for the Maine Lobster Festival so we chose the 15 mile drive. The owners and staff were wonderful. They even offer doggie daycare for a minimal charge. The laundry was clean but the machines are slowly rotting at the tubs, still usable and only $.75 to wash and $.25 for 15 minutes to dry. The bathrooms needed paint and showers are starting to fall apart, but they keep them clean. If you have children there is a nice playground. There are a couple of ponds. The swimming pool died this summer so they decided not to charge for air conditioning. Overall this was a very pleasant stay and with some work, this could be an outstanding park. - DigMyPast
