    We usually pick a site out near the water, but this trip was a one-nighter during a very rainy spell. Thus we opted for site #4 right across from the office and main bathhouse. The site looks out over one of the fields, where you can watch the cows. This is one of just a few sites with hookups. A dump station is available.

    Site #160 is located in the loop called West Bay. Many sites in this area offer great views of Casco Bay. These sites can get quite soggy when it rains. The swimming beach is just below this site. These sites are a bit pricey at $40 and with no hookups. Other sites not on the waterfront are a bit less.

    The main bathhouse near the office offers hot, coin-operated showers.

    Verizon National Access coverage is available.

    Another site, this one in the East Bay loop, also offers views of the bay.

    There are over 100 sites, some wooded, some grassy, many with great views of the water.

    There are also three cabins for rent.

    Here's a view of the beach in the West Bay loop.

    Here we are on an earlier visit on site #168.

    Several privies are located out in the camping loops.

    Wolfe's Neck Farm is a working farm. Campers are invited to visit the various facilities, including the barns. Kids have a great time here. There are also some nice hiking trails.
