Searsport Shores is an awesome campground with incredible ocean side sites and views. A babbling brook runs through to the ocean and provides a wonderful camping experience.
The owners and their staff are friendly, helpful and always have time for you in spite of being very busy keeping things spotless and in top notch shape.
Check-in, check-out was flawless and all arranged months in advance on-line with great communication. We described what we were looking for and owners picked our sight in a show of blind faith. It was incredible.
Here is a letter I sent to the owners upon our arrival home from a week long stay there:
“Just wanted to thank you for a marvelous stay on site #2. We have arrived safely home in Canada this afternoon with terrific memories of a most enjoyable vacation at Searsport Shores.
The weather tried to test us, but as far as we’re concerned it was no match in the least.
We been camping for as long as we can remember, beginning in our youth, and every summer throughout our 27 years of marriage. We have camped in some wonderful spots but we always have said that as much as we enjoyed a particular location, there is too much world out there to see to return to a spot previously visited. For the first time ever, you folks broke the trend. We both confessed early on in the week that this is a place we could see ourselves coming back to. Not sure when, but we can see it happening and that is remarkable in itself.
We never had to wait to use shower or rest room facilities and they were always well kept and clean.
Every campground needs rules, but we always resent the places where they seem to feel a need to rub your nose in the “rules” every chance they get as if you are children. We never felt anything even close to that. Just warm smiles and tolerance to our many questions that we are sure you are asked over and over and over.
You made us feel welcome and that contributed to a fantastic vacation.
Next time, can you crank down the fog machine just a notch or two though? Never mind, it was worth it to listen to the loon calls, sending us off to sleep most nights, and the water coursing down the stream.
If anyone is waffling on whether or not to go for the Lobster Bake at the beach, please feel free to send them my email. Not just a fabulous meal (which it was indeed), but also an experience/event. The entire meal was just amazing. A highlight of our stay, for sure.
Take care, and thanks for the experience. We hope to see you again soon.”
