The best campground we stayed at on our trip to Maine, we actually put in for an extra night but had to leave to return for a funeral. The sites are very spacious, shaded and pretty. We loved our site and the privacy it offered. The campground itself was beautiful. We took daily walks around the grounds and our dog loved the open field to run in. The staff was really nice as well. Very Close to Boothbay Harbor and they offer a shuttle service. The bathhouse are ok, and you pay for showers!! I say raise the price a couple bucks a night and offer free showers. The main bathhouse while not terrible could definitely use some updating.
Overall, we had a great stay and hope to return in the future
This was the best RV park I encountered on a road trip from Texas to Maine and back! Helpful and friendly staff, nice campsites among the trees, just off the highway but without significant traffic noise, and just 3 miles from Boothbay Harbor. They even operate a free shuttle into Boothbay Harbor. The facilities were very good, including a ‘rec room’ with good live music on Saturday night! If I am ever in the area again, this will definitely be home base.
8 nights at Shore Hills. Warm greeting when we arrived, our site was ready for us, just perfect. Wooded, nice and level, neat gravel surface, exceptional layout, picnic table, fire ring. 3-point hookup was accessible and everything worked. They run a shuttle to Boothbay Harbor at $2/person. We noticed a LOT of Class C units in and out of our area without toads, so the shuttle was handy for them. The campground is clean, everything works, nice paint on all the buildings. WIFI went down in our area of the campground one night, but they got it back up and running early the next morning. WIFI and cable TV are included, not extra. We enjoyed the steam locomotive whistle during the day from Boothbay Railway Village across the street, which seems to be a popular destination.
Note: Payment is cash or check only, no credit cards. They do take Good Sam discounts.
We were in our travel trailer, and we look forward to our next visit.
Stayed June 2016, traveled with family
We ended up staying an extra day because the staff and owners were so nice. The park was exceptionally clean and well maintained. The views of the tidal basin are burned into my memory forever. I LOVED this site. I am a veterinarian and can easily spot animal lovers. We brought our 2 dogs on the trip (a basset and corgi mix). The staff loved them and actually came to visit them . It was BY FAR the best experience we had during our entire 3,000 mile journey.
AAA Campground. Sites are beautiful and very accessilble. Grounds are kept immaculate with trash pick up daily at each site. Had trouble with the INTERNET service at first, but Staff member was there ASAP and very cordially fixed the issue. (Since I am somehat handicapped, I did not use the showers on site which apparently is for a fee. There, I honestly can not give a true rating.) Hope to return again.
