Recompence Shore Campground at Wolfe's Neck Farm
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 1, 2010

This beautiful campground is only 30 mins from my house in the city but it feels like a distant place miles away in the country. The oceanfront sites are beautiful with great views of the bay. The farm is fun to explore with kids and the employees are always very friendly and accommodating.

On my last couple of camping trips, however, I've been kind of disappointed by the condition of some of the sites and general maintenance of the grounds. For $40 a night, I would expect the sites to be in better condition. Also, both of my last two trips have been ruined by rowdy campers drinking all night not obeying the quiet time of 10-7 which is a real turn-off when camping with young kids. I wish the staff would do more to enforce the quiet time hours.

Personally, I am not a fan of "car camping," but this is an exception! We had site 96, and it was amazing! Any closer to the water and we would have been swimming. The sounds of the lake were mesmerizing, lulling us to sleep and prodding us to wake up. Perfect location for sunset and sunrise. It was quiet (mind you, it was mid-May) peaceful, beautiful, and convenient. Reasonably priced as well, for the view we were getting. I will definitely be back.

We stayed at the Bayview cabin and were told that there were gas lights, a stove, bbq grill, pots, pans and utensils. Luckily we had plenty of lanterns and candles because the gas ones provided were extremely dim. There was a pot and a pan but they were too small and the only utensils were a few forks and plastic butter knives. So bring your own spatula, grill utensils, steak knives and cookie sheets. Lastly, the bbq grill provided was a tiny charcoal grill that was missing the racks, we would have brought our gas grill from home had we known. The sites are close together and most of the tent sites are right next to the road. Nice bay views but tough to swim unless you have a gradually sloping site.

This is my favorite campground on the coast of Maine. I'm originally from Maine but have been living in Boston for almost 10 years. This campground is close enough to everything but far enough away as well.

It's clean, comfy, there are showers and bathrooms with flushing toilets, laundry facilities, outhouses and faucets around the campground. The office even has food and other goods you might need. It's a simple but perfect campground. The location couldn't be better and when the tide is up you can swim. Being able to bring the dog was a huge plus.

We love the shore campsites as that is our preference. The campground has a website.

We also camped here in July 2005. We have reservations already for July 2007 and can't wait!

This is one of the most beautiful and affordable campgrounds in Maine. The view of the bays are gorgeous. It is very quiet and peaceful here. Pets are allowed which makes it nice for folks travelling with their dogs. The sites range from primitive to comfy. The most sites are surrounded by trees which give great shade on even the hottest days.
The weekend I was there the Canadian Geese were migrating and used the cove as an overnight stop. It was a fantastic to hear them communicate and know they were passing through just like I was.
The fees for the campground go to support Wolf's Neck Farm and it's Organic Beef raising and other positive nature programs.
