Let’s be real. Camping near ANY water, fresh or salt, includes high likelihood of bugs…warmer weather makes it worse, of COURSE. And perhaps predictably, any odor, fecal or otherwise, is amplified with heat…hence the effectiveness of scented candles, no?
I just spent the most splendid two nights at this gorgeous place, in site 103. We brought our kayaks too, and waved off launching not because of the steep path to the water, but simply due to the fascinatingly rapid tidal movements. We’d been camping for a week at a couple of lake places and had enjoyed enough kayaking to hold us over. And for the record: the government website clearly shows a diagram that describes all campsites designated as “walk-ins”, and most adults could be expected to be capable of using online topography and aerial photos to preview applicability of specific sites for shore access…ahem.
That permitted plenty of time for casual touring locally and innumerable amazing photography opportunities on trails and at the sea coast. Breathtaking is a word overused but I have zero hesitation to apply it here.
Locals are congenial and rightfully proud of their beautiful homeland, and happy to share information and recommendations.
We stayed at the very beginning of October-leaves near peak color, no crowd and no bugs. Never smelled any poop except when contributing personally.
Clams are so easy to harvest at low tide that the park sets a 1 Peck limit! Look it up-a peck is a sizable volume, haha, and refreshingly non-metric.
DID find showering first thing in the morning to be an exercise in personal fortitude! Air was frosty and the facility was open to ambient conditions so there was quite a difference in temperature between the air in the stall and the hot water from the nozzle. Oh sure, the curtain was showing signs of a long season yet still functioned to shield my fresh towel and clothing from direct spray, and the stall had a plywood door and latch for privacy regardless. Hot water lasted fine and bathing success achieved.
PLEASE consider general realities of outdoor environments and do not pass up any chance to stay here. It’s as nice as any place I’ve ever stayed and I’m a geezer with lots of comparators.
One of the best campgrounds we’ve been to in America, beautiful views, close to amazing hiking (highly recommend bold coast trail). Fisherman’s wharf 20 mins away has great lunch with amazing view and service. Site 66 is very private with a short walk to site from your parking spot. We loved the little walk to get a more private feel away from the road and other campers. We were right on the water which gave a beautiful view of the sunset. We were even able to walk down on the rocks along the water to get a completely clear view of the stars and Milky Way. Couldn’t ask for a better campground 12/10 recommend for anyone looking to see scenic Maine!
Camped during Covid restrictions. Everyone seemed to be following the guidelines that were clearly posted by the campsite. The snack bar in the office/shop area was a great fallback plan if we were too lazy to cook, but wasn’t needed. People who ran the place were very accommodating. For some reason our fire ring and table were missing when we arrived, and they had replacements at the site within 30 minutes. They also delivered our wood to our campsite when I asked about where to purchase it while they delivered the missing items. Campsites were roomy enough, but set a bit close together.
