Wells, Maine is a very special place to us. We have been traveling there almost every summer since my husband and I have been together. We have loved bringing our children here and watching them grow. This was the first time we camped, however. So here we are with our family camping review #4 – Sea- Vu Campground!
It was such a great experience. We saved a lot of money and it was nice to have a different change of pace after long days at the beach. The kids having more space to run and get out energy back where we were staying was also a huge plus.
We had the ability to cook meals where we were staying, which we don’t always get to do so that was a money saver. It also allowed us to eat healthier! Bringing a family of 5 out to eat for all three meals of the day can be the most expensive part of any vacation!
Family Camping Review #4 – Sea-Vu Campground
Location: Wells, Maine
A campground with spacious sites, especially for being an ocean destination campground. It was incredibly clean and well maintained and the amenities were wonderful to have for the children.
The Sites- Se-Vu Campground
We really were amazed at how much space each site provided. And while not overly private, how they were situated between the trees made them feel more separated. There was plenty of room to set up and not be on top of your neighbors.
Sites were mostly grass with full hook ups!
With a lot of seasonal sites the campground has a very family feel. We enjoyed walking down past those sites and sitting looking out over the marsh of the ocean.
Amenities – Sea-Vu Campground
The bath house and showers were basically brand new and wow were they clean! The showers are free to use, not coin operated like most campgrounds. There was a second building as well with bathrooms and coin operated washing and drying machines.
There was also a great playground in a large sandbox with a basketball court and swings. The office is also a gift shop with all your essentials for camping, too. They have a small arcade room and a pool table room with lots of games, books, toys and movies you can rent.
We enjoyed having this for the kids to be able to burn off some steam before nap time or just get a change of pace from being down on the beach for the day!
The small but gorgeous pool was perfect for the kids! Even with it being a chillier weekend we still made sure to make time for a dip. There is a small 1 foot kid pool and the main pool does not exceed 5 feet, so very safe for families!
The Recreation – Sea – Vu Campground
Of course, the ocean! Wells Beach is a wonderful family beach but there is also a more quaint small beach called Moody Beach just down the way. We enjoy Wells Beach for the softer sand because Moody tends to be a little more wet sand being that it isn’t as wide of a beach and the tide covers the entire section when it is in. It is very quiet there though!
They have a trolley service from the campground will take you just about anywhere! The grocery store, restaurants, shops and even up to the beach. So if you don’t want to drive anywhere, plan your trip using the trolley!
With a wide variety of incredible places to eat some our absolute favorites are Billy’s Chowder House, getting lobsters and steamers from Wells Lobster Pound, breakfast from the Maine Diner or a sweet treat from the famous Congdon’s Donuts.
