1 Review of Pine Stream Campsite on the W. Penobscot River
Camp Perfect!

Camp Perfect is what we nicknamed this spot along the Western Penobscot River. It’s missing a sign, but clearly marked on the map as a camp spot. Although this is backcountry camping, these spots each have a picnic table, an established fire ring, and a very clean pit toilet (bring your own TP though).  There are bears and moose in the area, so come prepared with a bear proof container to keep your food safe.

We loved it so much, we stayed 2 nights and explored the stream nearby, swam in the bend of the river that offered a perfect swimming hole, and watched the gorgeous sunsets.   A truly gorgeous spot!

Note about costs: Located in the Maine North Woods, getting here is quite a journey, but ooohh so worth it. It’s on the way to nowhere, you have to pay to get through the gate along the Golden Road, pay a daily access fee, and daily camping fee. And, then there’s the shuttle. It’s expensive, but if you go with a group and share costs, it’s a treat! Maybe a once in a lifetime adventure for some people.
