My family has been coming here for years for a weekend of tent camping. They are always updating the facilities. There are clean toilets and showers, in addition to the outhouses. The waterfront sites are amazing. It's also nice to be in Freeport, especially if it rains. Plenty of shopping and eating downtown! Rent kayaks from the campground. It's a... More

Very nice campground on or near the ocean. Quiet sites and mostly shaded. Bathrooms and showers are a little bit of a walk. Fun things to do at the local barnyard. We were there during a craft show which was very enjoyable. Not too far from the Freeport stores and LL Bean. Would definitely camp here again.

We stayed at Recompence Shore Campground on a whim on our way up to Acadia and were very pleasantly surprised. I called and made a reservation over the phone and the staff was very friendly and helpful in picking the right spot for us. The campground was beautiful and we spent several hours walking around enjoying the scenery. There's lots... More

This is a pretty campground with a friendly staff. However, it is NOT set up for bigger trailers. We have a 30' trailer and had several problems. The campground roads are very curvy and closely lined with big trees and hard to see stumps. Though we are careful and very experienced at towing we caught the side of our trailer... More

Nice family place. Very helpful and friendly. Right on the water. So relaxing. Perfect for beginner campers. They helped us get to our camp sight when we arrived after dark.

We enjoyed our first night, and things were very peaceful. Second and third nights the campers next to us played very loud country music from a commercial radio station, which completely ruined our evenings. Requests to turn down the radio were ignored, and nobody does anything about it unless it's after 10:00 PM. Campfire wood was taken from our site... More

This was my first time camping and it was great. The facilities were new and clean and the other campers were friendly and polite. We will definitely camp here again. The camp ground is also well located just minutes out of town but far enough so it still feels like camping.

This was a phenomenal campground. Very easy to book, and I loved that you could choose your site and see photos of each location from home. Staff was friendly and very helpful, and even suggested that I change sites when a more popular one was available unexpectedly. Very well-maintained grounds and clean facilities. I loved having a site right on... More

Our overall experience was great. It is clean, the front desk is helpful, and it is very dog friendly. However, do not visit the snack shack. The employees and owner are rude. Small inconvenience in our wonderful stay.

We were worried when booking, as it was our first time camping in the states and we had no reference as to what the norm for campgrounds was there. It turned out marvelously. We had an amazing site, the location is just off the main part of Freeport. Only a 6 minute car ride to the core shopping area. Also,... More
