Recompence Shore Campground at Wolfe's Neck Farm
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 June 2013

The location of this campsite is just perfect. It has plenty of outdoor activities offered with the state parks nearby and family farm that runs this place. The facilities are clean and conveniently located. It is also very close to the Freeport shopping area if you don't want to cook or if you need any outdoor supplies.

The location is ideal and it is a very family friendly campground. My kids love the playground and the farm, as well as fishing from the rocks. My family has been going here since 2000, and we are always happy. The updated cottages are nice an rustic and we enjoy staying in those too.

My family has been camping at Recompense for the last five years and look forward to going back each year. The location right on the bay is perfect. It is very family-friendly and well maintained.

Be sure to read the descriptions of the sites online. If you don't mind full sun all day, then choose one of the open area sites. If you like a little respite from the sun, be sure to choose one that has some shade.

Room Tip: Your "room" and your sleep quality depend upon what you pack!

Recompence Shore Campground is a beautifully located campground just 4 miles from LL Bean in Freeport, ME. This campground offers a wide variety of camp sites from grassy full sun to fully wooded shade to serene oceanfront spots. RVs and tents are both allowed. There are also cottages available to rent. Tenting prices range from about 30-100 a night and in most sites, 2 tents will fit comfortably. We had a great time and loved walking around wolfes neck farm as well! We highly recommend!

We've stayed at Recompense Shores/Wolfe's Neck Farm in each of the last ten years. Theocation is spectacularly beautiful, and the facilities are first-rate. The outlet stores in Freeport are just a few miles away if you need a diversion, but the area has plenty to offer aside from that.

My husband and I have camped at Recompence Shore Campground for years now. We have a travel trailer - 26 feet. We have stayed in sites both with a without hookups, depending on the forecast.

The oceanfront sites are by far the best, but there are none with hookups, and not all of them are private. Use the website to make the best choice for yourself.

The hookup sites are much less private and much less desirable. I think Recompence would do very well to add utilities to some of their wooded sites.

With all that said, the location of this campground could not be nicer. It is part of a working farm, Wolfe's Neck Farm, and there are paths for walking, animals for petting, and a rocky coast for climbing or sitting on. Freeport - home of LL Bean and lots of other outlets - is just a few miles away, as are many other day trips.

If you like lots of planned activities, a pool and a rec room this is NOT the campground for you. It is peaceful, pretty and natural.

Superb location, with eco credentials. Quiet, laid back and beautiful surroundings. Lots to do and visit locally and helpful staff. Check out wolves neck farm. Great views over the water too. Children will love it. We would highly recommend

Room Tip: Clicked rooms...but you need to bring your own. No swimming pool, but lots of water to swim in..
