3 Reviews of Desert Dunes of Maine Campground
Nice campground

A nice campground. Clean sites and shaded. Watch out for ticks in the leaves and trails. But the desert/dunes are an interesting attraction and the campground is close to Freeport, ME which is home to LL Bean and local breweries. About 30 minutes from Portland, ME.

Great for late arrivals!

While on the road on a Saturday night, it was difficult finding an available tent site for Saturday night only in the area. Called Desert Dunes and the man helping me couldn’t have been more friendly or helpful. We weren’t even sure if we would make it but he posted a campground map with my name on it and directions drawn out to an available tent site. We got there well after dark and ended up with a great little site (T3) and lucked out with no neighbors. The desert tour looked very cool but will have to wait for next time as we had to get back on the road.

Desert of Maine

What a lovely campground! We were tucked back into T8 which is a walk down campsite under the trees near a small stream. The benefits were not only a little bit of privacy but close access to the bathrooms and showers (free) which was most excellent as well as the washer and dryer ($1.50 or so a load for each machine). The folks working at Desert of Maine were ever so helpful and so very friendly. With the location being a short drive from a gas station, grocery store and the LL Bean shops in Freeport as well as Portland, we were in the perfect spot at a reasonable cost especially because they offered a military discount. The desert itself was really cool and those camping get 1/2 off a guided tour. In addition, there is wifi near the camp check in and gift shop which was a plus. Definitely more of an RV place but tents are definitely welcome, although I would say go for T8 if you have a tent. Definitely a quaint campground for those passing on through!
