In August of 2012 we arrived at "our tent site" (which is premium bayview) which we had stayed in the previous 2 years. Much to our extreme dissappointment and dismay, the once pristine site was deeply rutted, a mud pit and slick with some fluid which had leaked from the RV that had just left the site. Despite the fact that it was Sunday and a major event was being attended to at the Recompence Shore Farm (which is the best farm we have ever visited as far as cleanliness and animal treatment is concerned), we had the camp manager and two of his assisstants respond immediately to our concerns for the horrible condition of the site.
Not only did the staff assist in moving all of our equipment and choosing the best alternative site based on proximity to the great playground, brand new bathrooms/showers and still a view of the Casco Bay but the manager supplied us with free firewood and comped the entire stay to insure we would return.
Our one improvement we would make if we were management at Recompence Shore Family Campground is to have a separate area for RV camping. RV's mixed with rain render the campground dangerous for tenters and completely obscure other's view of the bay not to mention the generator sound and smell.
We have recommended Recompence Shore Family Camprgound to many friends near and far (we live in Maryland) and cannot wait to camp there in 2013!
