Considered Mid-coast Maine's premier oceanfront campground, on the shores of Penobscot Bay, located between bustling Bar Harbor (Acadia National Park) and charming Camden village, you can find camping sites overlooking the ocean. Searsport Shores Ocean Campground offers old-fashioned camping fun in a family atmosphere.
Park your RV along the ocean or in a pull-through site. Pitch your tent in a shady spot or camp under a canopy of stars. From this ocean front campground you can kayak right from the beach, hike the nature trails, eat Maine lobster on the shore, fish from the beach, explore tidal pools and join the kids in a basketball game on the playground.
Want solitude? We'll direct our campers to 900 uninhabited acres on an easily accessible island, only 5 minutes away, for day use exploration including hiking, boating and biking. At Searsport Shores Ocean Campground, the fishing (and shopping) is good, the people are friendly, the campfires are crackling and the ocean is inviting.
If you really need to keep track of your life in the digital world, we offer an online computer station, free wireless or an ethernet hookup.

"This mid-coastal Maine campground, boasting 1,200 feet of scenic ocean shoreline, is one of the top in New England. The views of rocky coastline, picturesque coves, Sears Island (the largest uninhabited, undeveloped island in the state) and open ocean are spectacular. Campers have a long stretch of private beaches to enjoy, ranging from rocky tide-pools to water smoothed pebbles to soft sand.
Keep meandering and you’ll run into Moose Point State Park, just down the coast, within walking distance from the campground.
The grounds include ocean viewing decks and sitting areas, arbors and trellis, and artistic wood carvings. Facilities are top-notch, including new rest rooms and showers, a large rec hall with a library lending area, an array of musical instruments, and an indoor play area for young children.
