We travel a lot of places across the USA and every once in awhile we are happy to find a campground that far passed our expectations. Shore Hills was a gem. Clean, nice paved roads, nice big private sites nice and level. They have a ocean fed lake at the back end of the campground that is so beautiful and natural. Just to sit and watch the day go by and the sunset was so nice every night. It's very clean and if your going to Boothbay Harbor, they even provide a campground shuttle they own and operate which was nice as well. They have a part of park for big rigs, as well. If we lived closer this would be a place we would visit often. Its that nice a park!
This was a really nice family campground. The atmosphere here was very family and the staff was friendly. Yet some sites are close and some in a field need a little leveling required, but not to bad, Their was something about the campground that made it special. My kids enjoyed it as did we. It's not a 5 star high class campground, but everyone seemed to enjoy being here including us. Main roads are all paved in good shape, as well. The shuttle comes every 30 min for free and takes you to Bar Harbor or to the National Park Acadia, so you can park you camper and take buses all over the area for free. This was one of our favorite campgrounds on our Coastal Maine summer trip.
We stayed here after viewing website and were a bit let down when we pulled in. It was a hot day the dingy office was not air conditioned and a bit dusty, the employees were nice but it just looked a bit run down for the price they charged. The roads were all dirt with loose rock pot holes and that's just the maybe 100 yards into the park I did not have to go past that to my site. I could not get level no matter how hard I tried.But as I looked around I was not the only unlevel camper. At 50 plus a nite just to park for the nite I was a bit annoyed. The bathroom we always check to see how they are. We both said rv showers tonight.The pool was ok, patched here and there but clean. At 830 am I was waken by chain saw by workmen getting fire wood, I thought your kidding me and he went at it for some time. Not many choices in this area to camp. Just feel its fair to ok at best. If I had to shower or use their bathrooms I may feel is less then fair but I did not use them.
