It's a beautiful, well maintained camp ground. I enjoyed staying here for four nights over Labor Day weekend. Great views of the water at some camp sites. It was relatively quiet. They staff is pretty low-key and helpful. The showers are free and good. Many of the pit toilets are closed to the pit until you flush, and they flush with water. The camp store is pretty convenient. the prices aren't too bad. I noticed a pack of 4 AAA batteries was comparable to the price at Walmart, maybe 50 cents to a dollar more, which is a reasonable convenience fee. A 5-lb bad of ice however was about double the price at a grocery store though. Downsides: despite being on the water, there's no real beach on the site (or swimming), and the camp grounds aren't that convenient to beaches or other natural sites. Kayaking/canoeing is only at limited times, due to tides. The closest attraction outside the campsite is Freeport, but most people don't camp in order to go shopping. One friend complained that the price is a bit much for what you get. There are some decent hiking trails on the site, but it would have been nice to have a trail map. The site doubles as a farm and in some places you can smell the cows.

My family and I recently spent a week camping at Wolfe's Neck Campground. We choose this location because our kid was actually doing farm camp for the week at Wolfe's Neck and you get a discount on camping if you stay there during the camp week. We had a water/electric site in the "East Bay" section, which I really liked. I normally avoid "field" type sites, but here, the field in the 400 section was super quiet and tons of room. Our site was huge and grassy and had great hookups and the wifi signal worked perfectly here. The grounds were really fun to explore including the hiking trails, animal barns, and the ocean area. THe campground is really spread out between different areas and has RV sites with and without hookups, tent sites, and even a "quiet cove" quiet section for tents. There is an on-site restaurant which we never tried, and a camp store with all of the basics including produce from the farm. I did use the showers in the main part of the camp near the office and they were basic but clean and FREE! Location wise the campground is perfect. Just a few miles outside of downtown Freeport, Maine the location was great for exploring Portland, Boothbay and the rest of the costal region. We can't wait to come back next year for another stay!

My husband and I stayed one night while passing through to our final destination. We found this campground on Google and we were lucky enough they had one primitive site (that was all we needed). The price was right coming in around $42. The campground is located on a working farm. Their snack shack and store had so many fresh foods to choose from! We had an AMAZING lobster roll. Our site had a picnic table and fire ring. In walking distance from VERY CLEAN showers and bathrooms. In walking distance from a large field/ playground. The best part was it was in walking distance from the ocean! You walk out to Casco Bay, it is so beautiful. We hit the jackpot finding this campground. We will definitely return for another visit. It was so worth it!

The campsite we reserved was on the oceanfront of West Bay. The picture on the website made the spot look a lot bigger than it actually is. If you are looking for some true quiet time in the woods, this campground is not the place. There's hardly any privacy between each site, and many are so small that people's cars and tents were right by the road where cars drive through. They have quiet hours in the evening, but throughout the day there's a lot of noise coming from a lot of people - all having good fun, but definitely rowdy. We also did not realize that the shore access for kayaks are actually down very steep steps, and it was not in any condition for us to carry our 2-person kayak. We had to drive over to a bridge (just a minute drive) and launch it there. This wasn't a problem when it was high tide, but when the tide went down, it was a muddy mess trying to get the kayak up (there's no boat ramp or dock). I can see this campground being fun with a big group of people and if you just want to have good food, drink, and play outside, but it's not a great place for those who like spending quality time in the woods in silence. It's cute that they have farm animals and gardens around, and I can see it being fun for families with little kids. We just wanted to camp in peace and quiet, grill up some good food, and go fishing and kayaking.

The campground is beautiful. Kids loved the farm animals. it was very relaxing. Bathrooms are nice and cleaned regularly. Although I did see some dirt on the shower stall floor that was still there after the cleaning. My only complain is with the shower stall door in the men's bathroom. There is a wide gap between the door and the wall and one can see clearly through the gap. And what do know, the toilet is right in front of that gap. It felt a bit unsettling sitting in that toilet while people (specially kids) were coming and going. Campground stuff, if you are reading this, please fix this gap!

Nice place, pretty, tent site not level. Staff was not that helpful. Probably won't go back. Low value. Did not feel welcome at all. Lot's of rules and regulations. Too bad they couldn't have been nicer!

This place was fantastic. Lots of open space for the kids to spread out and enjoy. There are bathrooms literally everywhere, though most are the primitive type. I didn’t mind at all. The camping spaces were very large and spread apart from others. Everyone had room to have a good time without bothering other campers. Waking up to the sound of the cows and chickens was so cute. This place is so close to downtown Freeport, Brunswick, literally anywhere. The showers were hot! There are dishwashing stations all over. Lots of programs going on everyday. The barn was cool! You can take the kids everyday to watch the milking. The views were super cool too. We will definitely be back!

We had a recent visit to Wolfe’s Neck, a large eco farm in Freeport. It is located along the shore and in a lovely setting. The campground is larger than we prefer and the site difficult to access, but it is obviously a very busy and popular place. The staff were very nice and helpful, in particular Rebecca , one of the Managers. Big thanks for all her help!

We camped at site 116. We have a 21’ travel trailer. Barely backed it in,with little space because of many trees. This site is not feasible for this unit! What were they thinking? Don’t know how we will get it out? Going to be tight! Not impressed!! In my opinion this is the worst campsite in this campground!!!

We love Wolfe's Neck Farm and the campground! We have been coming here every summer for the past 5 years, and it it PERFECT for young kids. We always opt for the larger sites that are open and grassy, because it gives the kid lots of space to run around and play. The 830s sites are our favorite and often available because they are in the sun. Fortunately, our family has lots of melanin so we aren't bothered by that, but we usually bring a tarp or awning to get a bit of shade on hot, sunny days. We aren't big fans of the bathrooms here, but that is the only complaint. I suggest bringing everything you need to toilet and shower onsite, and avoid the bathrooms altogether. I mean, they're not horrible, but we don't really like public restrooms--especially in the era of COVID. I can't tell you if they were cleaner than usual because we didn't set foot in there. The staff is friendly, there are lots of amenities and kids' activities on site, plus where else can you be on a farm, campground, and seashore all at once? The website is quite thorough and really does cover everything that is available without leaving the grounds. There is plenty to keep kids occupied, but sign up quickly because access to organized farm activities is extremely limited in the COVID-19 era. Even if you don't get to participate in the farm events, there is still plenty to do and explore on your own. Kayaking is one of our favorite activities and is normally available for all ages (we took the 2 year old). Unfortunately, all boat rentals and swimming were unavailable on our last trip due to a recent shark attack in Casco Bay, but normally, it's great to explore the bay. The location is perfect for families that are new to camping or have young ones--just close enough to town to feel comfortable taking a baby on a camping trip, and just far enough to feel like you're off the grid. The stars and moon are really beautiful at night, and sometimes you can hear the ocean lapping against the rocks...and an occasional farm animal in the distance.
