We were fortunate to have serendipitously timed our visit to Searsport Oceanfront Campground to coincide with the appearance of the quilting ladies from Gee's Bend, Alabama. This was a vastly informative experience since I had never heard of them. We took part in the celebratory...More
Clean campground, at check in the staff was very friendly. After that I didn't get 1 hello or good morning. As far as dog friendly, it is if you have a tiny dog that doesn't bark. We were constantly told to quiet our dogs, well...More

Ok so usually it would take a lot for me to give a bad review but for being so called "dog" friendly I STRONGLY disagree! Very rude about dogs barking the USUAL bark, like when someone walks by or they are startled, these are COMMON...More

My wife and I have lived with a dog in our families since being young children so we know how important it is to have them along on family adventures. To make that work in a campground we ask that pet owner's are diligent in the management of their animal by keeping them with them and leashed at all times, not allowing uncontrolled barking, always cleaning up after them, only bringing them if they are friendly towards others and carrying their vet.papers along.
To help with these policies we have an enclosed dog park, miles of trails and beach to exercise your dog so they can be relaxed with the family back at the site. I know I've been called prickly on occasion when asking pet owners to better manage their dogs. It is tricky to balance the pleasure/ comfort of others with the behavior of your/ our loved, very special dogs. But we'll keep trying to make it the best we can for everyone so that we can remain a dog friendly park without disrupting the vacations of non-pet owners.
Thank you for letting us know your concerns,
