    South Freeport, Maine

    Spread out over 626 acres with over three miles of shoreline, the campground has three distinct areas to choose from:

    East Bay: Inland sites. Electric & Water Hookup sites are here, as well as some of our most private tent sites. Sites 2-56 are shady, and sites 60-70 are in a more open area. This is the closest area to the Camp Store, showers and Snack Shack.

    Middle Bay: Tents only area. Forested and shady, Middle Bay gives the feeling of being deep in the woods, yet with many waterfront sites.

    West Bay: Tents and RVs welcome (no hook-ups). West Bay has tall trees along the water line, and open fields and pasture. This area is particularly suited to kids, as it hosts the playground and recreation field. This area was recently improved with our new shower building.

    Sebasco Estates, Maine

    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.
