Our kids smiled the entire time and did not want to leave. Shin Pond Village was very accommodating. We have stayed with them 2 Summers in a row now and the kids beg to go back. The rentals are clean!

I would not recommend visiting during the pandemic. The staff at the indoor check-in desk/ice cream bar/gift shop counter were not wearing masks. During check-in and check-out, we saw a few different unmasked employees (and never saw an employee with a mask). It felt like they have no regard for the safety of the guests.

OK, I don't mean that Shin Pond Village is Club Med with a meal plan, but it is a destination in and of itself with roomy, tastefully decorated cabins, a restaurant to catch a meal or an ice cream, enough provisions to make up for what you forgot, and even beach access on the pond. We were just in need of a base camp to explore Katahdin Water and Woods and the Matagamon entrance to Baxter and "the Village" more than fit the bill. Check out their website which offers great info on hikes in the area.

We camped here at a no amenity tent site with our ATV and utility trailer and tent. The owners and employees of the Villiage were all extremely nice and helpful people. The campground and property is ATV friendly, we were allowed to use our ATV to go to the store, bath house, dumpster. Two ATV trails leave directly from the property. The store had more than enough of everything including some souvenirs. The restaurant was excellent. The only tiny complaint I have is that everything is funneled through one cashier, ice cream, restaurant, gas, and store - So sometimes the wait was long in line. But, you are up North where things are relaxed so we didn't let our patience get us. Non-ethanol gas was available. We will definitely be back.

Every year we spend a lot of time in this little place. They are always friendly, have excellent ice cream and other food. And you can fill up the gas tank, get a few beers ans some light groceries to go . Check out the patten trail maps and enjoy some black raspberry or cotton candy ice cream ( the kids favorite )
