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 2019 was our first full year operating, we ranked a very high "7th 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've added three, spacious, exciting sites for 2020 and made many enhancements for an even better experience.

WildWalkWays is a unique and really cool small campground with 8 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 100% POSITIVE REVIEWS***  HAPPY CAMPERS RULE. HERE IS ONE  REVIEW RANDOMLY PULLED BELOW

"I had the best camping experience I’ve ever had at the Cedar Meadows campsite, it was completely pushed into the woods and it 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 and the site is big enough for a nice walk by the 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 7 tent sites are spread over many acres, in our beautiful coastal forest, only three 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, 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 firewood.

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.

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.

SPECIAL BREADS Starting July 3 around noon and 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. See pic.

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.

Totally great! Beautiful woods near an old logging road, with a gurgling brook and loads of native plants. The sites are well laid out and very far apart. Mark is a gracious host. It was definitely a unique experience; it’s not the routine kind of campground that you see everywhere else.

Came back for the second time. A wonderfully secluded area with a lot of very happy wildlife. The pine thrown down on the campsite provided just the right amount of cushion. A very peaceful spot and a hidden gem!

While the babbling brook is a charming little spot, the mosquitos were absolutely horrendous during our stay due to recent rain. We also underestimated the amount of work it is to drag all our camping equipment down the path to the campsite and back up again. We would probably not choose to stay there again.

The campsite and trails are both naturally beautiful and have subtle landscaping to enhance it. The sound of the stream running and a wide variety of birds singing completes the setting nicely. Dragonflies and fireflies abound.

Mark is a gracious and kind host. I look forward to visiting again.

We stayed at WildWalkWays Two. Súper cute site. We were greeted by a turtle in the adjacent stream. There is a great spot to pitch a large tent that is elevated slightly above the main area of the site, which we liked given rain in the forecast. Magical feeling to it. Mark was a wonderful host and we had great communication with him prior to and during our stay. Reid State Park and Sewell Pond are beautiful. The latter is great for a dip if you can’t handle the cold North Atlantic temp.

Thumbs up for WildWalkWays! Mark is a flexible and gracious host. The sites are all very private - you cannot see, hear or smell anything other than nature. Mark has created a great balance between providing simple, yet essential amenities (bathrooms, running water, fire pits) and maintaining an idyllic natural setting for each campsite.
