Love it

We love Hermit Island. Very primitive, but thats part of the fun. Private oceanfront getaway. No dogs except one weekend a year. This was nice before I had a dog. No barking. No radios. Just peace and quiet. It has become a little cliquey with "regulars" and "third generation visitors" some feel…

About This Campground

Hermit Island Campground is a family-oriented seasonal campground located on a 255 acre peninsula in Small Point at the southern tip of Phippsburg. The campground is accessed by a right-of-way which goes across a sand causeway. Hermit Island is roughly 1.5 miles long and .5 miles wide at the widest point. Most of the campsites are on the southern end of the island. The northern end has several beaches, hiking trails, and a small marina and wharf.

Campsites & Cabins

Our 270 campsites are located near sandy beaches, on rocky cliffs, along the tidal harbor, and in the forested interior. Each campsite has a picnic table, a loose rock fire ring, and parking for one car. Campsites fall into 4 categories depending on how close to the ocean they are and whether they have a water view or direct beach access.

Ocean Prime sites have an ocean view and/or beach access. Prime sites are close to the ocean or beach and may have a partial view. Choice sites are not as close to the ocean as Prime sites, but are closer than Value sites. Many Choice sites are on the harbor side of the campground and have water views and/or access to the harbor directly from the campsite. Value sites are located within the wooded interior of the island and are farthest from the harbor and ocean.

We also rent 3 small cabins - The Hermit Island Cottage, the Log Cabin, and the Sou'wester.
