We had a campsite right on the Penobscot Bay & it was the most beautiful view ever. This Campground is a hidden gem.....wooded, beautifully landscaped, clean restrooms & showers. The owners, Astrig & Steve, are such wonderful, warm people. Our site had a deck & we had coffee on the deck every morning & a glass of wine on the... More

Excellent views of the bay if you get a waterfront site. Scenery great! However this place is overpriced. I can't believe they have minimums of 7 days on some sites, or others. Agree with the other poster on the overpriced lobster bake. Hit the Anglers restaurant in Searsport for a $32 Maine shore meal with clams, 2 lobsters, muscles and... More

Not a bad campground but for us it was hard to sleep so close to rt 1 and listen to traffic, boats and airplanes. We may be more sensitive then others because we live in a very quiet rural place but i thought someone should mention the highway in a review. None of us could sleep well so our three... More

The service for check in, questions and help with our difficulties was amazing. We had a tire issue, the owners called and helped us make arrangements for repair. They went above and beyond. We needed to stay an extra day and they were more than accommodating. Campground, showers, bathrooms and laundry are very nice and very clean. Pretty spot on... More

We had a very restful week at Searsport and were met with friendly and helpful staff. Nice touches at every turn. Clean bath house and rest rooms, laundry, and "studio" where an artist was in residence and available for guests and families. Kids were all around but had plenty to do with playground and water. Beach is rocky so water... More

The best; If you are lucky enough to get one of the waterfront sites, the view is spectacular. Many sites have private decks. Great playground and fenced in dog area. One of the owners is very nice. The worst; One of the most crowded campgrounds we have ever been in with virtually no privacy. Even the best sites are packed... More

We have an RV but the site has no sewage line, has to go to dump station. They have beautiful ocean front tent site, RV oceanfront campsite is too tight to each other in my opinion. Lobster bake was way overpriced, and can't believe a $20 kid meal only means getting one hotdog?? Lovely sunset with amazing view, too bad... More

An incredible campground for any camper or RVer. Family run with care and heart. From check in you knew this place was different. Our site had ocean view and was more than roomy. Even my cat loved walking the grounds (on a leash). Big dog park on premise also. Receipts room was very big and great for relaxing or to... More

Searsport Shores is pretty much as advertised. It's a full service campground with a tent camping area (with some adults only campsites). It is a "walk-in" camping area, although they do help you with available carts and occasionally golf cart help. The positives are a beautiful site with a nice picnic table and firepit; a Saturday night lobster roast on... More
