We stayed with friends for two nights on the west bay site 149, an open, field-ish site near the new bath houses. The site was well maintained but certainly not our first choice because there is no shade. (There weren't many options by the time we were able to make reservations). However, despite that, the new bathhouses were terrific and being close by was helpful, also the little path to the rocks was a nice place to eat our campfire breakfast. We love this campground, and haven't had a bad experience. The west bay has a lot of families that are up early, not an issue except for that one morning we wanted to sleep in after a fun night. We indulged in the Lobster bake, which was terrific and a great value. This is our second time to Recompence, the first time we stayed in middle bay and we loved our wooded site, so we would probably shoot for that area again. Overall, an easy camping trip within close proximity to shopping, entertainment and other creature comforts.
