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.

Room Tip: The size of campsites varies DRASTICALLY. Large, grassy sites are great for kids!

If you are tenting, older and want a free for all, from the city and want the country farming feel this is the place to be!! While the grounds are well kept, its easy to get lost trying to find your site, people riding bikes well after dark, people speeding down all roads as you need to drive or bike everywhere. It's not safe for kids to ride bikes alone. Hiking trail not what we thought either.
