This campground will always hold a special place to my fiancé and I, as we got engaged here! We stayed right on the bay and there were gorgeous sunrises and awesome sites. There was plenty of space to spread out at camp and not have to worry about intruding on someone else. The rise and fall of the tide is a bit tricky if you want to kayak very much because you might end up dragging it through the mud if you stay out too long. Restrooms were close by but the only downside was that the showers were at the main store so you had to drive all the way up there! We arrived after hours but since we contacted them earlier in the day, they accommodated us by leaving a map to where our campsite was!
We camped next to the water and it was glorious. Mix of RVs and tents with a nearby farm to see animals and play. A playground in the center of the park and an easy distance from nearest town for groceries and LLBean supplies.
We stayed here this summer and was one of our favorites ever! This campground is located on an organic dairy farm. There is a farm cafe on site with local food. We loved that! We went into Freeport and did a lobster charter on the Jenny ellen boat. Beat memories of any trip we have been one and we camp a lot.
Absolutely fabulous camping experience. Stayed in "quiet cove" which is the tent-only location a bit of a ways from the main campground office, but much more natural and secluded. Was also created pretty recently so the bathrooms were clean and lovely, and all the pathways and landscaping felt really well maintained. Didn't try the food, but there is a nice food stand with woodfired pizza and a lobster dinner on certain nights. The trails and ocean views around Wolfe's Neck Park were fantastic - highly recommend for anyone looking to get out of the Freeport consumer scene.
A beautiful place with a farm, campground and state park all together! There are tenting spots, camper spots and field spots. I recommend any with tree coverage. There are bathrooms close by to all, the main lodge is nice and the food at the snack shack is sooo good!! burgers, pizza, salad- all local and from their gardens. The working farm is open to visit and walk around. Pet the baby cows and see the pigs and goats. they have a ton of activities going on through the summer. Our huge tent site was $60 for a busy August weekend. totally reasonable! we had a lovely time despite the rain and will try to go again next year! The grounds are a short drive to downtown Freeport for shopping at the outlets and LLBean.
My husband and I loved camping here! beautiful property, great little store on site for anything you forget, and it was really easy to book. we were so thankful that when we decided to stay an extra night they let us know when someone on a different site checked out so we could scoot over and stay. :)
One of our families favorite camping spots. We prefer sites near playground that overlook Vasco bay. Bathrooms are very clean and kids really enjoy running in field and that there is a working farm within the camp ground.
We enjoyed an oceanside site on a bluff over the bay (Middle Bay). An outhouse a short walk away. The other reviews give a good description of the whole property. I would think this would be a good place to bring kids to enjoy all there is to offer. We did rent a canoe and attempted a little fishing.
This campground was absolutely great. Like most campgrounds on the shores of Maine in the summer, it can get a little pricier. The campground offers oceanfront camping, hike-in camping, and your typical large gathering type camping. It has a camp office/store, farm store, and a cafe that is a hot spot. The bathrooms and trash/recycling are all in one central location, with outhouses scattered throughout the grounds. Freeport is very close for any shopping or grocery needs.
Your stay at Recompense Campground supports Wolfe’s Neck Farm - a working organic farm and non-profit organization. Wolfe’s Neck Farm is set on 626 acres with four miles of coastline and is the legacy of a local family farming operation. The family donated the land to the community based on their belief in useful preservation and protection of open spaces. The farm is now open to the public, free of charge every day and is committed to continuing and improving upon the long tradition of sustainable agriculture, recreation and education while preserving its open space.
The campground has oceanfront campsites as well as sites nestled in wooded areas. There are RV sites (some with hookups), tent sites, and even three oceanfront cabins. The farm also has a dump station as well as free showers. You can freely roam the farm (or hike in the adjacent Wolfe’s Neck State Park) or rent a kayak/canoe and explore Casco Bay. Definitely a unique experience and great educational opportunities for families with kids!
