Average from beginning to end. The owners are exceptionally nice. The upside is the price points for the basic experience was average, too. Not a destination place, but, if you're in need of a quick, cheap, overnight, look no further.

This trip was bittersweet because we were dropping our son off at college for the first time in Castine, but Marlene and Dave made the visit much easier. From the day we arrived with our son it was clear that they have a passion for what the do. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. They had many activities to be involved... More

We stayed for 2 nights this month. We really loved the cabin- so many thoughtful little touches you don't usually get in these kinds of accommodations- the porch with chairs was peaceful, along with firepit and provided chairs! Inside space was nicely laid out- included fridge and Keurig (with 3 k-cups for our stay). There was a small clothing rack... More

Cold showers. The woman said they'd leave the pool open a little longer for our kids to swim but then a man came along and kicked them out very shortly after they got in. A month after our stay they called me and stated that our kids wrote their names on the support beams and that the cops were on... More

When trying to book, the woman told us she only had a tent site in the woods available. I talked to a gentleman before her, and he was very pleasant, and told me there were a few sites available close to pool and playground. He said she would have to call me back when she got back in the office... More

We stayed here while traveling back from Prince Edward Island and loved it. The couple that runs this place were so friendly and sweet enough to keep the office open a little past 9 so we could get checked in. We stayed in one of the cabins, which has bunk beds---but they are full-size mattresses, and very comfy. The room... More

We stayed 2 nights recently and first off, Marlene came right out of the office to greet us at the gate. We hopped on her golfcart and she showed us our lot. It was a cozy site, well-shaded and had full hookups. We took our son to the pool. It was pristine. .. sparkling clean. Behind us was a sight... More

After looking for awhile online, we came across this gem of a campground. After making a couple calls to the owners and getting exceptional service, we decided this was the place for our family on our two week camping vacation. I am a native from Maine but not from this area, so the recommendations given to us by Marlene and... More

Marlene and Dave just bought the place in October and are working to make it the best. Everything is very neat and clean. Sunday morning is pancakes with blueberry sauce. They plan events for holidays. Some sites are not shady YET. Trees have been planted. The Estates area of the park is dog friendly with a nice fenced dog area.... More

While we were staying at the Shady Oaks Campground, we had truck problems, I phoned Marlene from a local gas station, and her and her daughter arrived within minutes to lend us her car, while ours was getting fixed. Marlene and her husband Dave, couldn't have been more hospitable and kind. The Campground has a really homey feel, and they... More
