The Way Camping Should Be

Searsport Shores Ocean Campground offers old-fashioned RV,
Cabin & Tent camping fun in a family atmosphere.

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.


“Number 1 Most Beautiful Campground in Maine”

This Maine campground offers the ocean at your site and picturesque Maine Harbors around every corner. Worried about Maine weather? We’ll help you find lighthouses in the fog, blueberries in every restaurant and lobsters straight from the ocean every day. In the meantime, it’s not too early to start planning a few hikes before you visit us!
