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

The "beach" at this campground is all rocks and seaweed. We had expected to be able to sit on, walk on and swim at this "beach". Not possible. Also, watch out for the check in time. The maximum check in time on the Friday before the 4th of July was 8pm. We knew with the traffic we wouldn't be able... More

this was agreat week full relaxation. site 15 on the ocean was great. sat on deck watched the water. kayak along the shore and played in the waves with the kayak. swimming was okay suggest walk down towards the end for deeper water. check in was simple and will even park your rig or guide you in.

I cant say enough great things about this campground. This campground quickly became our favorite. The lovely owners, Astrig and Steve, have thought of everything from flowers in the bathroom to Saturday lobster bakes. Its a very family oriented place, but perfect for couples as well. They do a great job of creating a community, even with people coming in... More

This was our second stay at this campground. If you like a quiet, picturesque setting to park your camper for a mid coast Maine visit then look no further. Our site was right on the seawall and the views of the bay were spectacular! Well worth the little extra for a premium oceanfront site. We will definitely return!

My husband and I tent camped for 4 days. It was bliss! The campground is phenomenal with activities for the young and old. Our sight was right on the water and the view was stunning. The staff/owners made you feel more like family than visitors. Make sure your stay includes the Saturday Lobster Bake. It was heaven! Thank you Steve... More

Searsport shores is exactly what you want in an ocean front Maine experience. The owners are amazing, kind, hospitable, and eco friendly. Come here to let the ocean set you free, or doddle about learning how to pick berries or a new craft. Whatever you do, you will love it.

If the grazing goats near the gate don't spark your interest, maybe the raised garden beds, or the studio, or the owners. The clean bathrooms then, or the art tucked in here or there, or maybe that it's really a campground not a trailer park. Did I mention the bayside sites where you can sit and watch the tides, the...

We have stayed here 3 years in a row. Site 3 is amazing and once you get it, book it for next year before you leave. Don't be surprised if the following year you see the same campers. We also stayed in the cottages toward the end of the season. Taking a hot outside shower while frost is on the... More
