Wolfe’s Neck Oceanfront Camping, formerly Recompence Campground

With nearby outlet shopping, on-site fishing and hikingbiking and kayaking, and more – the whole family is bound to have a Maine vacation to remember.  Enjoy wood-fired pizza nights with produce from our organic fields at our Farm Cafe, and visit our Camp and Farm Stores to pick up local goodies and camping supplies.  Head down the road to visit Wolfe’s Neck Center’s barns and gardens.

If you have kids age 4-14, considering enrolling them in one of our week-long Farm Camp programs. Kids can learn and play all day while parents get some well-earned rest and relaxation! We even offer a “Camp and Camp Discount.”

Wolfe’s Neck has something for everyone. Each campsite here is unique, unlike the cookie-cutter sites you will find at many campgrounds. Spread out over 626 acres with over three miles of shoreline, the campground has three distinct areas to choose from:

East Bay: Camper Conveience

East Bay includes some of our more private tent sites and our 30amp Electric and Water RV sites. Sites 100-200 are mostly shaded, with the convenience of our Farm Café, Shower Building and Camp Store nearby. The 400s loop is set in an open grassy meadow, giving RVers the best of sunny days and starry nights (with WiFi!)

Middle Bay: Where the Forest Meets the Sea
This tents-only area combines the serene beauty of the forest and sweeping views of the ocean. Tall trees provide well-spaced, shaded campsites. Stairs to the shore and a kayak launch slide provide access to the rocky shoreline, where you can watch osprey dive for fish and enjoy the ocean breezes.

West Bay: Where the Farm Meets the Ocean

West Bay is perfect for families with small children. This area features our recreation field, playground, and shower building with flushing toilets. Most sites are wide open and grassy, and have panoramic views of Casco Bay and our vegetable fields. RVs allowed on certain sites (no hookups). This is an awesome area to enjoy the sun and stars, and to see our farmers hard at work.

NEW Quiet Cove:  Zen in the Pines

This walk-in section of the campground is perfect for those looking for a back-to-nature camping experience. On the edge of a tidal estuary, this area will quickly become a favorite of those looking for quiet and solitude. Campers agree to keep voices low at all times, and refrain from using amplified music or bright lights. Each campsite comes with a hammock, and is limited to three people and one tent. This area can also be reserved for those wishing to hold group retreats.

Cabins & Cottages

Bayview Cabin

Set on its own private lot, this traditional Maine cabin offers sweeping ocean views and private stairs down to the rocky shoreline. A great room offers lots of space to spread out, and a patio provides outdoor seating with a view. Bedroom has two queen-size camp mattresses, and there is a twin-size cot as well.

Cove & Point Senior Cabins 

Built in 2014, Cove and Point Senior have similar layouts. Galley-style kitchen opens into the living/dining room. Bedroom features a queen-size pillowtop bed, and twin-size bunkbeds. The sleeping loft (up a ladder) offers two additional twin beds.

While they both have lovely views, Point Senior has the additional benefit of a campfire out on the “point” as well as private stairs down to the rocky shoreline.

Our campground is part of Wolfe’s Neck Center for Agriculture and the Environment, a leading organic demonstration farm and educational resource center with the mission of transforming our relationship with farming and food for a healthier planet.

Recompence has something for everyone. Each campsite here is unique, unlike the cookie-cutter sites you will find at many campgrounds. Spread out over 626 acres with over three miles of shoreline, the campground has three distinct areas to choose from:

East Bay: Inland sites. All of our Electric & Water Hookup sites are here, as well as some of our most private tent sites. Sites 2-56 are shady, and sites 60-70 are in a more open area. This is the closest area to the Camp Store, Snack Shack.

Middle Bay: Tents only area. Forested and shady, Middle Bay gives the feeling of being deep in the woods, yet with many waterfront sites.

West Bay: Tents and RVs welcome (no hook-ups). West Bay has tall trees along the water line, and open fields and pasture. This area is particularly suited to kids, as it hosts the playground and recreation field.  This area was recently improved with our new shower building.
