We really like Old Orchard Beach for the old-timey beachfront community. The downtown area is just so fun with some good restaurants, good fun for the kids (young teens) and some really good campgrounds. We don't do resorts because all the extra "fluff" is not for us. We stay at Ne're Family RV Park on the hill above downtown. It's 3 blocks from the water and easy walking if you can do the hill.

It's about 30 minutes from downtown Portland and the original LL Bean, which is worth a day trip.

We love Wells Beach. Sea Vu and Sea Vu West are very nice campgrounds. There's a trolly that runs all around the area for $1. Great food. Nice beaches.

If you are heading up the coast 2 very nice campgrounds come to mind.
Shore Hills Campgrounds in Booth Bay. The Booth Bay Railway village is right down the road. A great day can be spent here, and of course Booth Bay Harbor village has some great shops and restaurants.
The Lobster Buoy Campsites in South Thomaston. It seems that all the campsites in this hidden gem are right on the ocean. It is located just south of Rockport and Camden.

We enjoyed Bayley's Resort when we stayed there a few years ago. It was only the two of us so we did not use all of the amenities but still had a great time. Close to Old Orchard Beach (free trolley if I remember correctly) and very nice pools and grounds.

That’s why I asked if he had kids.

We prepaid a week at Bayleys and we disliked it. No refund, couldn’t leave.

What, 450 sites? Most of them filled young kids and their friends running around like Hooligans.

They had a marshmallow gun fight and were under our camper and picnic table. They rent out big atv pedal big wheels and there were roving biker gangs sliding around on the gravel..almost hit our dogs when were walking them.

The pool had 100 kids doing cannonballs all day.

Parents sat around the campfire all day drinking beer ignoring their kids.

Then it rained and the unpaved roads turned it into a mud pit.

Meanwhile we found Wild Duck around the corner. Adult only, paved roads, salt marsh view. Stayed there a few weeks until we had to leave. Wonderful.

And no, we don’t hate kids. Have two and adore our grandkids. Former Scout leader.

Big Katuna, agree with you. We also stayed many, many years ago at Bailey's and hated it. First time we had ever heard of "piggyback" sites. But if op has children, might be up his alley. We also have stayed at Wild Duck and enjoyed it, however felt it took us a long time to get to some areas we wanted to explore. Another poster talked about Shore Hills in Boothbay, which we love. Some tent camping, which are at the water, some for smaller rigs, that have plenty of trees and shade, and then an area for big rigs that are pull thurs and back ins. Jean Reny and her staff are very nice. Day trips can be made from Kittery to Belfast. Many great places to eat, shop, see lighthouses from the area. And if you travel with dogs, most resaurants with outdoor seating allow dogs, which we love. If wanting to go to Bar Harbor, I would suggest going farther to find a campground. Boothbay to Bar Harbor is a 4 hour one way drive.
