See what our customers are saying about Ocean View.

I spent so many summers camping at Ocean View and loved it!! Now my husband and I have taken our children three times and they have enjoyed the same great times I had as a child. The speed limit is enforced so the kids are free to bike. The pool is always clean, bathrooms too and quiet hours are respected. We love you Ocean View!! Love, Tina and Justin B. (Vermont)


WE LOVE OCEAN VIEW! Whenever we head to Maine, we always choose Ocean View! My Dad and his family have been coming since he was a little boy, then he introduced our family and we went every summer as kids to stay in the cabins. Now, I still come back every summer, this time to tent, and it just keeps getting better and better! -Katie M.

I camped at Ocean View a few years ago and thought everything about the place was great – location, price, sites; so this past weekend when I was looking for a place to camp in Southern Maine I knew exactly where I wanted to go. Unfortunately, as we went to leave the campground (after a GREAT stay), we discovered that our car battery had died overnight. I went to the office asking for help, and the guys at the campground spent at least an hour helping us to get it jumped. They were awesome and were so nice and so helpful, and thought nothing of spending all the time to help us out. I can’t stress enough how much we appreciated everything. BOTTOM LINE: If you want to stay at a phenomenal campground, for a great price, in a great location, and give business to some really awesome and kind people, Ocean View is the place to stay. -Pete Z.

This place is our home away from home. Every year we look forward to the changes that take place. We have met good friends over the years. This place is a MUST for you to see. A great family adventure for everyone. Can’t wait to return next year!! -Stephanie & Jim G.


I bet no one can top my history at OCV!My Methodist minister parents first brought me to Ocean View “Cabins” in 1942. I bet no other writer and ongoing vacationer here can top this!! Now my husband and I travel from Korea where we live and teach to Wells, Maine every summer, just to sit and enjoy the ocean view from the rocker on the screened porch of Cottage 10. I have been privileged to be close friends with the 3 generations of Trafton owners, as were my parents before me. No other summer place has a deeper place in my heart than Ocean View! “Thanks for the memories” and here’s to many more… -Sonia S. (Date Visited: Summers 1942 – 2012)

I have been coming to Ocean View almost every summer for over 50 years and through three generations of the Trafton family ownership. It isn’t summer without a trip to Ocean View and we enjoy being there in the fall also. It’s a great and welcoming family vacation spot! -Kathie L.

We always go off season when its more relaxed. My sister and our dog have been coming here for years. The people are friendly and the cabins are great. A home away from home. Love it! -Barbara O.
