Since arriving at the campground in late May, Sears Island is quickly becoming one of my favorite places. Accessible by only one road, and completely uninhabited it is a great place to spend the day.
The island is full of hiking trails, biking trails, and even trails for horseback riding. One of my first days here was spent biking the length of the island. As you peddle through the island you are rewarded by the almost candle-like scent of the trees and the unique island ecology.
Besides all of the hiking trails on the island, the entire perimeter of the island walkable during low tide. On another one of my days off I set out hike around the island and it was so worth it. The island is simply breathtaking, and there are many unique rock faces that you wouldn’t even know about unless you hike around the back side.
If I had to describe my time on Sears Island in one word, it would be peaceful. Walking along the beach, looking at driftwood, shells, and sea glass. No sounds except the lapping of the water and the occasional bark of a distant dog. I would recommend that anyone who has a free day to check out the island!

Hello Astrig and Steve, Joel and I would like to thank you for your kindness during our recent stay. Just wanted to update you on Joels sudden illness. Thinking it was the flu and still not well a week later he finally went to the dr. and long story short, he has Lyme Disease. So now it all makes sense, he sure was ill. Thank you so much for helping me to move the camper, I could not have done it without you. You have a very lovely campground and we felt very at home there. Once again, thank you for your kindness.
