Looking for Sea-Side camping in Maine or New Hampshire

Hi everyone

We are looking at taking a trip down to Maine or New Hampshire this summer. Can anyone recommend campgrounds that are on the shore (ocean view) that are clean & quiet? We only need 2-way connect.

Thanks so much

If you want a nice quite campground on the Maine Coast you couldn't fine a better one than Sunset Point Campground close to Harrington Maine. the owners are great couldn't ask for a better host in a campground. Its only 30 miles from Bar Harbor only a day trip to Canada and the Rooservelt- Campobello Int. Park, A day trip to Freeport and LL Bean or to Portland. The owner will pick up a Maine Lobster fresh from the boat and even cook it for you, if you want.


We planned to stay here a week but liked it so much we stayed a month and took a lot of day trips

I totally agree with Billy. We stopped there on our first night of a 5 week tour of North Eastern US and found it quiet, clean and very picturesque.
I couldn't get over the competitive pricing on wine. An easy days drive from Nova Scotia. Have fun and check our Bar Harbour

On the way to Maine two great campgrounds that overlook the water are Ponderosa Pines in NB. It is located vary close to Hopewell rocks and have sites that overlook the bay. Another nice place to camp is at St. Andrews NB. The campground is the Kiwanis Oceanfront Campground. We have camped here several times and you can see the water from most of the sites.

Thank you Billy Bob & Reinreb - this is great feedback. We will definitely check out Sunset Point when the time comes.
Caper - I've heard of the cg in St Andrews however the Ponderosa Pines is new to me but very interesting sounding. I have a cousin up that way so I may try to kill two birds with one stone.

Thanks everyone - very helpful. Great forum.

These two sound like nice places to stay. What are their prices and do you have any photos of the campgrounds

Recompense shores campground is on a nature preserve, down the road from a state park, in the tidal flats overlooking the bay in Freeport Maine. Close to the LLBean shopping area (10min) but still in a wilderness area.

It's been a few years since I was there, the very best sites are tent ony, but many of the other sits are also coastal view. Clam diggers will be seen in the flats at low tide harvesting alongside great blue herons and other aquatic birds.

Not much for hookups, it is mostly primitive with vault toilets but I have head they have recently put in some new bathroom/shower facilities.

Coastal Maine and New Hampshire is a massive tourist destination so many of the coastal campgrounds resemble larger field type RV layouts designed fr high capacity - shady, spaced apart sites are few and far between until you get out of southern Maine and into Downeast Maine. It gets better north of Boothbay Harbor and into Camden and Bar Harbor.

I do not have photos or rates but you can google the campgrounds and get more info. While we were at Ponderosa Pines a moose can down to the tidal flats.
