Water on 3 sides!

Municipal CG, very well cared for. Very popular, so difficult to get weekend reservations. Our site (86) was level, partly shaded. No hookups. Generator hours are very limited and enforced, which we appreciate. Free hot showers. There is a sandy beach for swimming in Casco Bay, if you can brave the…

Not friendly.

Called to make a reservation, no customer service here. Unfriendly and short responses.

Quiet campground on the lake

We loved this campground, quiet, a lot of seasonal campers, the lake is a decent swimming temp. The bugs were kind of vicious. The bathrooms and showers were decent. People were friendly. It’s tucked away in the woods, pretty cool spot, they only take cash or check so keep that in mind.

River view

What a beautiful and well cared for campground! We got a space on the water (82) and the view is so beautiful. Picnic table is clean and sturdy, bathrooms very clean. It’s a quartet for a shower but that’s fine with me. Lots of trees and plenty of space. Would definitely recommend!

Noisy and crowded

The campground is beautifully maintained and clean, with lots of pride of ownership. Nearly all sites are occupied with seasonals, right on top of each other. So it's like camping in a small city with a few trees overhead. The sites are close enough to hear every word of every conversation and…

Quant with awesome views

This is a great quant campground. It was built back in the 50’s but there are plenty of sites for those of us with large campers. The sites are right on the lake with gorgeous views. Some sites even have their own pier to sit out on and fish or swim from or simply watch nature. They rent kayaks and…

Best Primitive Camping Around

I have been camping at Hermit Island for my entire life. Every year we have an annual camping trip there with friends and family. I believe this is the best primitive camping experience you can have.

Some info that may be helpful. Campsites do not have any electricity, there is no water at the…

Second stay

We tented for two nights mid-week in 2020 and booked the cabin for Memorial Day weekend 2021. I thought we might like it less completely booked but that wasn't the case. The owners are quality people, the seasonal folks are super nice, the facilities are lovely. The weather was cold and rainy but…

Campground under new ownership

Hello! The Desert of Maine Campground changed ownership in the winter of 2018-19. All of the reviews of this campground on The Dyrt are from before a complete renovation by the new owners (me and my wife, actually). We are anxious to have as many users of this platform look at what we have done and…

So peaceful and relaxing!

We visited this campground in May 2021. The sites were clean and the owners very friendly and helpful. The ocean view was beautiful! Picnic tables and several chairs and benches to sit and watch the ocean scenery - porpoises and seals and the sunrise was amazing! There was also a cute wooden swing…

Halloween!

This visit we had our hybrid camper in one of the wooded sites. The Halloween celebration is really well done- campers decorate their sites, there is an in-costume parade, and the central, bigger rigs are set up for trick or treating. The haunted house is scary enough that I waited by the exit!…

Great spot, great hosts

Kid and pet friendly. Lots of activities for kids including a flashlight candy hunt, water slide, and s’more roast. We’ve been coming back for years and the addition of a glamping tent, cabins, and domes have made it even nicer!

Great Beer, Great Food and Great People

My wife and I just spend an overnight here.  The brewery is really cool, and the wood fired pizza is some of my favorite.  The folks who run this place are really friendly and accommodating. Both my wife an I really enjoyed ourselves.

This is definitely an RV park.  The sites are close…
