Scroll thru the pics above to get a visual of the actual tent sites. ***SPECIFIC DESCRIPTIONS FOR EACH ARE AT THE END OF THIS WRITE UP.***

FROM THE HEART on Corona: our huge campsites are clean, with LOTS of SPACE between them...there are NEVER crowds. We are the 'un campground' in a scenic, rural area of Maine with clean air. Bathrooms are cleaned and sanitized regularly. BE SAFE AND STAY WITH US.

At WILDWALKWAYS, you are welcomed to a pristine, coastal forest in scenic, unspoiled Georgetown, Maine on the ocean. This quaint town is a gem of the Maine coast, near historic Bath, the enticing "mid coast" area. You won't find a more rewarding and affordable camping journey with so many natural "Maine" features. 

Your campsites are surrounded by a scenic lake, meandering rocky stream, active beaver pond, giant moss covered cliffs, majestic forest and more! All of this in a natural, untouched setting with pine needled trails ...the real Maine! Georgetown is the best of both worlds, as it has a northern, wilderness feel, yet is only 12 minutes to "civilization" in historic Bath, Maine. 

Even though 2020 was only our second full year operating, we ranked a very high "2nd BEST IN MAINE!" Campers were 100% enthusiastic and ALL sites were filled up often. Thanks to all who stayed, making the year a booming success! Plus, we added 4 spacious, in 2020 and made many enhancements for an even better experience. Two more sites are on their way.

WildWalkWays is a unique and really cool small campground with 10 tent sites total, in 3 sections with different price points. Our sites are PRIVATE AND SPACIOUS WITH GREAT VALUE. Unlike many campgrounds, with sites jammed together without privacy, ours are spaced well apart for MAXIMUM PRIVACY. 

It doesn't feel like a typical campground ...IT FEELS LIKE A PARK.

Even when every site is booked, campers tell us you genuinely get a sense of "owning the Maine forest."

***READ OUR  POSITIVE REVIEWS***  HAPPY CAMPERS RULE. ONE  REVIEW RANDOMLY PULLED BELOW

"I had the best camping experience I’ve ever had at the Cedar Meadows campsite, it was surrounded by woods and was the biggest campsite too. We hung our hammock up and listened to birds chirping, you can’t hear anything but wildlife. Having a toilet a short walk away was a huge plus. Mark was the best host we could ask for. He was extremely polite and helpful, he brought us an axe upon asking for one and even left out some wood for us and helped us to the site. The beautiful untouched land is amazing with a small waterfall and big cliff, well worth a visit here. Already planning on coming back for the fall foliage because of how great our experience was. If you want an extremely quiet and secluded campground away from big crowds and small sites, come here."

AT YOUR CAMPSITE   A lot of thought went into designing the sites for solitude, fun and privacy. Every camper has told us they loved the genuine camping experience. The 10 tent sites are spread over many acres, in our beautiful coastal forest, only two miles to the ocean. You can hear the surf many nights. Each tent site is unique, with views, stream, fire pits, peacefulness, cliffs, mossy boulders, wildlife and more. For your comfort, we have spread a thick layer of soft pine needles over each tent area, which makes for an incredibly relaxing, comfortable sleep. All sites have marked trees to hang hammocks from for added enjoyment. At WildWalkWays, you are in the real Maine woods with trees, deer and nature all around you but you are not isolated. Rest assured, there are no poisonous snakes or crocodiles! You will wake to the fresh scents of the pine forest and aromatic bayberry in the air. I know that might sound corny but it's true. 

CREATURE COMFORTS   There are quality, enclosed portable toilets a short walk from every site, with soft lighting near each one so you can find your way. They are cleaned and supplied daily. Each serves only 2 or 3 sites! Pine needled trails lead to these rest stations. They have lighting and a fan inside. Kinda cool and everyone loves them. EACH CAMPSITE has its own cold WATER faucet, right at the the tent site! A unique touch special to our sites.

WE CAN FURNISH YOUR SITE IN TWO WAYS, TOTALLY OPTIONAL: OPTION 1: For an additional $39 per Book, YOUR SITE COMES SUPPLIED WITH: a table, two chairs, cooking utensils (pot, saucepan, cast iron skillet, bbq tongs, spatulas, steamer, rotisserie pan with lid, plates, bowls, cups, knives-forks-spoons-larger knife, ( all real ones! ) cooking grate for firepit, scraper, veg. peeler, 2 oven mitts, kitchen scissors, paper towels, condiments-salt, pepper, ketchup, sugar, 1 gallon of water, and one nights firewood.  NOTE: 10 pds. charcoal can be subbed for wood.

OPTION 2: Just the table, chairs, cooking grate and one bundle of wood. $23

BOTH UPGRADES PAYABLE HERE. SAVES YOU LUGGING AND THESE ARE THINGS PEOPLE OFTEN FORGET. LET US KNOW BEFORE YOU ARRIVE IF YOU WANT THIS UPGRADE. WE RECOMMEND IT.

SAFETY   Every occupied site has a few motion or solar lights to softly illuminate the area. In addition, the logging road used to access the sites has occasional solar or motion lights so you aren't totally in the dark, it is a very subtle effect. NOTE: We always have a few LED flashlights on hand if you forgot yours.

MEANDERING STREAM  There is a meandering stream close to all sites, with several small waterfalls. Sites Morning Mist, Babbling Brook. Mountain Meadows, Waterfall Cove and Streamside Overlook are "on" the stream. ( it never floods )

MAINES BEST OCEAN SWIMMING NEARBY!  Famous REID STATE PARK and it's huge sandy beach is in this town, just 10 minutes away. At Reid, there is also the famous shallow "lagoon", where water temps are higher,  for a more comfortable swim. Small barbeque grills are there for free. (left side of Reid parking lot toward water) Reid is a jewel of the Maine parks and also a great hiking spot: check out the rock bluffs! Up the road a bit, is famous SEWELL POND for lake swimming and kayaking. It's a very scenic area. There is also a public boat launch nearby, where you can launch your kayak into a protected ocean inlet with amazing views.

PLANT LOVERS  Our property is also the home of our famous rare plant nursery, Eastern Plant Specialties, filled with amazing wildflowers, giant rhododendrons and native plants ...a botanical paradise if plants are your thing! The largest collection of gorgeous rhododendrons anywhere in Maine lives here. Trails thru the gardens abound. We offer a guided tour during rhodo bloom season, May thru July, which can be reserved when you book. Yes, you can buy plants and many do.

FOOD  The Georgetown general store is only two miles away on route 127 ...a nice walk or bike ride and it has a good wine selection. Bath, Maine finally has a good pizza place: Brunos Wood Fired Pizza on Front St. (ask for well done, they don't cook it enough) Here in town, there is a seasonal farm stand, farther down 127 south, offering local foods, wines etc. Also in Georgetown, don't miss Five Islands Seafood: This is a famous place, rated as one of the finest for lobster, with great take out food on the wharf. It is at the very end of 127 south. Feast on the best lobsters, burgers, chowders, etc. with picnic tables to enjoy your meal and one of the most AMAZING VIEWS in Maine! Don't forget, here at WildWalkWays, each campsite has a fire pit, with grates available for your own barbeque.

Also, we will have camping basics available, in case you forget: condiments, extra water, firewood, charcoal, paper towels, soap, etc.

SPECIAL BREADS  On most Fridays, we will have some special breads from one of the finest Maine bakeries. Including the best Pain au Levain I have ever had. Not as sourdoughy and incredibly crunchy and airy!!! I can eat the whole loaf plain! Limited supply. $9 a loaf, reserve ahead.

HISTORY  The noted towns of Bath, Brunswick, Freeport and Wiscasset are only 12 to 25 minutes away.  Bath is a scenic and easy town to stroll around in with shops, cafes and history. The Bath Maritime Museum is a cool place, fun for kids and adults. Next town over is Brunswick, a bit bigger, home to Bowdoin College and also a great walking town. Freeport is well known for shopping, home of L.L. Bean. Heading up the coast is Wiscasset, highly scenic, famous for Reds Eats, shopping and scenery. 

CENTRALLY LOCATED  We are less than a days drive to so many Maine attractions. Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park are less than 3 hours away. The take off spots for wonderful Monhegan Island are just an hour away. Popham Fortess is a fascinating old stone fort, a half hour away. There's much more.

AUTUMN COLOR  Don't forget the famous Maine FALL FOLIAGE, this is a great place to see it -- peak fall foliage is Sept 20 thru Oct 15. Our campsites are usually booked well before fall season, take note.

The campground is beautiful and private, and is located conveniently close to surrounding towns so it’s also a good jumping off point for exploring the area. We stayed at a site on the water, which was small but perfect for the two of us, and had a great view. Although we’re used to camping without bathroom facilities, the toilets are a nice touch, and they are well maintained. Due to our late-ish ETA plus rainy and cold weather, Mark kindly offered to cancel and refund our stay, and while we appreciated the offer, we wanted to camp and we’re glad we did! The following morning we explored the entire campground, and there are many beautiful sites, all of which are secluded and nicely maintained. Mark was a great host, and he communicated well. We’d definitely stay again the next time we’re in the area.

Had a good time camping with my son. We stayed in the red door site. The site is a good size for two people. It's nice that the sites are not right on top of each other so you have some privacy. Definitely bring bug spray, although mosquitos weren't too bad at the site itself.

Cozy campsite that is relatively private. Great fire pit and comfy flat places for a few tents. Weather was fantastic in august. Pretty scenery inside the forest with a few ponds. Highly recommend bug spray!
