We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, even though it rained much of the time. The ocean view from our trailer was wonderful and, when the skies cleared, it was even better. The owners are friendly and very accomodating. There are plenty of paths and trails to explore. Nearby Searsport has some fun shops.
One reviewer complained about the view of a chemical plant that "runs tankers round the clock." It's hard to imagine where this individual was, but of the 180-degree view from the shore, the two or three liquified gas tanks that were visable probably only took up about 5 percent of the view, if that, and were hardly an eyesore. We saw one ship anchored off shore that didn't budge over the three-day weekend. My guess is the nasty reviewer is one of those few who do not require energy to fuel vehicles or anything else. If you can get by tenting by bike, more power to you. But those of us who do use vehicles appreciate having fuel. Please, can we do without the over-dramatization?
