Quiet, private

Great park camping. The water pressure in the showers is a highlight. Large, mostly level sites, and most are rather private. Access to park amenities like lake and hiking trails.

Have camped here in summer (be prepared for bugs) and winter (no services) and enjoyed every visit. There are cooking grated at check-in for the fire rings if you want, and a spot to deposit trash and returnable son the way out. Super reasonable rates and easy check-in process.

Great amenities, friendly staff

Nice large, level site with water and electric hookups. Large, clean shared bathrooms with good water pressure.

Loads of amenities - general store with basic supplies, tons of activities for kids, pool, atv trail access and walking trails.

Was here in the fall. Campground was quiet and there were no crowds for the bathroom. Very enjoyable.

Remote and private

3 secluded spots on a dead-end road. Wooded, path to the lake. Each site includes fire ring and picnic table, and share a pit toilet. Strictly carry-in, carry-out. Road into camp is dirt and some of it can be rough. Cars can make it just go slow. Atv trail access from camp - can ride to Lincoln, Ellsworth, Grand Lake Stream, Machias and all points downeast from here.

No fee, first-come first served. I have never seen all 3 sites in use at one time.

Over 20 miles from paved road. Designated cell reception about few miles away. Accessible to Jack’s Snack Shack (seasonal food and firewood).

This cluster is a well-kept secret. It’s a great backup plan if the Unknown Lake sites are full. Being wooded, it’s a tad cooler here, but the bugs are still obnoxious. If you enjoy listening to Loons, they put on quite a symphony. The lake would be great for kayaking or SUPs and fishing.

Remote and scenic

Handful of spots, directly on the beach of a quiet lake. The road runs between middle and lower Unknowns and the scenery is wonderful. There is a pit toilet, shared by 8-10 spots. Strictly pack-in/pack-out. About 20 miles from paved road and 10 miles from spotty cell service.

No fee, first-come first served. These fill up FAST in the summer. Don’t worry - if it’s full when you arrive head to Duck Lake or Gassabias Lake camp sites. They don’t fill up (in my experience).

Bugs here can be THICK so be prepared.

Sites include picnic table and fire ring. Some are private and others are more exposed. There are also “group sites” on both sides of the road driving in, and they’re more wooded than the beach sites.

Our first viewing of Northern Lights was on the beach here. Super quiet, amazing sunsets and lots of wildlife.
