I just returned from 3 nights camping at Shel-Al Campground and I will definitely visit there again. The grounds are well-maintained, the bathrooms are spotlessly clean and the staff have got to be the friendliest around. They even sang Happy Birthday to me one morning when I entered the office (I'd mentioned earlier that my birthday would be that day)....

We've stayed at Shel-Al for the past 4 years and love it. It's always clean, quiet, and well taken care of. My 6 yr daughter loves the playground here!!

We stayed here with our 32 ft RV. Site was nice and rates were great. All the staff that I ran into were very nice and helpful. This was our second visit there and would recommend this campground. Area was nicely kept.

We've been going there for the past 5 years. Bathrooms are very clean (0.25 $ for 6 minutes). Peak time (4ish) You might have no more hot water. Site is nice. 12 minutes from the beach. If you forgot something back home, no prob since home depot is around the corner. Very friendly staff!

Stayed this past July, we rented the 5th wheel and fit 5 of us confortably. The grounds are neat and groomed. Great grassy areas for tents, large playground. Plenty of trailers and tenters, but it never felt crowded. Staff very accomodating and full of info or just conversation. This will sound crazy, but the best ice I have ever gotten....

Clean, beautifully landscaped and a great location. We stayed 3 nights and went to Kittery, Portsmouth, Ogunquit, and Jennes Beach. The sites all seem to be grassy with trees for some shade. The office doubles as a store with some basic camping supplies. My only suggestion for them would be to open the office a little earlier. I need coffee...

Good location for going out to the beach or a wine tour. great for adults in RV's or tent campers. the staff were very nice too....

We booked 3 days at Shel-Al Campround for our Rye Beach 4th of July camping trip. We were tenting it and booked a non-service site. The folks on the phone and on-site were great.

“I really like camp site 56-66! They have a great layout and more space then others. I feel a lot of people with kids stay on the other side because of the play ground!”
