Forty five years ago, our family started assembling 400 acres of woods and fields on the banks of the beautiful Androscoggin River. We enjoy actively managing the property for wildlife habitat and tree growth. The diverse landscape includes over 1/2 a mile of river frontage, a 10 acre wildlife pond, rolling hills in the meadows and steep forested terrain with more than 10 miles of multi-use trails running throughout. Our lands have long been open to local hikers, bikers and cross country skiers, we are excited to share this beautiful property with a larger community. Scout for wildlife and birds, on our private 400 acres of forests and fields. Tire yourself by hiking, mountain biking, snowshoeing, or cross country skiing the 10 miles of private trails.  Located across the river from Riverlands State Park, just minutes from Lewiston-Auburn, Bates College, local breweries and just 2 1/2 hours from Boston. Wildlife abounds both on the property and across the river at Androscoggin Riverlands State Park. Quite often, a gentle breeze off the water will offer relief from black flies and mosquitoes, but the right bug repellent is recommended especially to fend off those pesky ticks that are so common in Maine.

Highly recommend!!
The service was amazing! John was so hospitable and even allowed us to stay an extra day without additional cost because no one had booked that night! I seriously would recommend this cabin. The view is amazing and I love the privacy. My partner and I are considering coming back later this year! ☺️

Slippery Rock Tiny Cabin
A special place
the land 400 acres of land along the Androscoggin River near Lewiston. Easy access to water, private trails for hiking and cross country skiing, and hills for sledding. the cabin gas fireplace, gas camping stove + cooking equipment, cooler with ice provided, picnic bench, fire pit, portable toilet outside, no shower (but not a problem for us). overall, the cabin is extremely cozy especially on cold nights and the view of the river is spectacular. we would have been perfectly content to sit in the cabin all day and read if it weren't for the fact that the surrounding land wants to be explored. the hosts John built the cabin himself. The wood came from trees in the surrounding forest and were milled onsite. He takes the time to share a history of the land with all of his guests and provides access to neighbors and local organizations that wish to visit. He and his wife, Pat, have been hosting Hipcampers since 2017. They care deeply about been good stewards for the land.

Dreamy sites
We loved camping on John’s land. We feel extremely blessed that John shared his land and stories with us. While there we saw 2 bald eagles, deer, turkeys and a hot air balloon. My girls loved all the wildlife. The fishing was great too. The kids caught some perch and a few bass. The views from the site were stunning. I can’t wait to visit again.

Incredible location!
We had the best anniversary on this camp site! The sunsets were unbelievable, the lot was private. We enjoyed watching the water planes take off and land. We brought our two dogs and they loved running through all of the wooded trails and taking a dip in the river afterwards. What John has done to preserve this land is truly remarkable. There was so much wildlife, it felt like we were 5 hours north. We will be back! I cant recommend it enough.

Great escape !
We loved every bit of this experience. It was our first stay in a tiny house. It has everything you needed. Starry nights and quite Maine mornings. We opted for the canoe and fire rental! It is a must to get out on that beautiful river and was so easy to communicate with John .

We loved this spot! John and his wife are incredibly helpful and kind. The property is beautiful. We stayed at campsite 2 for one night. You could see the other campers but the site felt private and secluded. Highly recommend it!

Thank you for such a wonderful relaxing camp experience!!! My parents stayed in the tiny house and my husband and two children rented a tent site by the river. Gorgeous views and the kids had a blast running through the fields, hiking to the pond, and canoeing to the island. Love all the milkweed! We spotted a monarch and bald eagle.

Your new favorite camp site!!
My best friend and I camped here for three nights and we loved every second! The scenery is stunning. The stars- incredible!! We enjoyed exploring the many miles of hiking trails on the property and couldn’t get over kayaking at sunset! I brought my own kayaks and we were able to put in right from our site. We had neighbors on each side for two nights but could hardly tell they were there. John and Pat met us when we arrived and they were so kind and and accommodating; John also took some time to share the history of the property which made us appreciate it all the more. We also took a small afternoon trip to Portland one day since it’s only about an hour away. The only minor thing to be aware of would be the fact that there are houses in the surrounding area, which means we heard noise from a gathering across the lake one afternoon and evening. It didn’t go late, but just know this is not quite “in the middle of nowhere” with only sounds of nature. Overall, a 10/10 and a truly lovely experience that we would do again in a heart beat!

Slippery Rock Tiny Cabin
Gorgeous View and SUP Adventure
We absolutely loved our stay! It was so lovely cooking over the fire, falling asleep with the sunset, and waking up to the gorgeous view and sunshine peeking over the horizon. The cabin was beautiful and well stocked with many lanterns, a refillable 5 gallon water tank, two burner camping stove w/ extra propane, large garbage can, paper towels, a small cooler, and many utensils, mugs, plates, pots and pans, etc. We brought our inflatable paddle boards and had a great time in the water, paddling over to the little nearby islands, stopping to fish, picnic and swim. We were the only people on the water, except for the occasional sea plane! Our family of 4 was very comfortable. The upstairs loft has a full sized bed/floor mattress, but note that the ladder to climb up is really steep and tight. Older kids and (smallish adults) will have no problem, but it’s tricky getting young ones up there. Highly recommend!!

This HipCamp experience was amazing! I can't say enough good things. The campsite was absolutely perfect, especially with how hot the weather has been. Our dog had easy access to the river so he could jump in and cool down, which was essential with these 90 degree days. We had him try out a canoe for the first time, and he absolutely loved seeing all of the wildlife (watch out for porcupines)! We will definitely be back. This is an incredibly beautiful spot, and we all - both human and canine - loved it.

Blissful scenic relaxation
We had an absolutely wonderful experience camping on this beautiful property. John and his wife are completely delightful- we were so happy to meet them. They were quick to welcome us & offer some great information about the area, were available had we needed anything, and left us to a private, relaxed campsite. We spent our time lounging in the hammocks, cooling off in the river, and sitting by the campfire.

Incredible Property, Amazing Host!
We had such an amazing time on John’s property! When we arrived, he met us at the gate, guided us to the cabin, and then had a lovely chat with us about the story of his land! He also pointed out some amazing trails he built himself around a pond - home to herons, otters, beavers, and some groundhogs running around in the grass. The cabin itself was just perfect, everything you need, but nothing that you don’t. We played games, enjoyed the nature, went canoeing, hiking, made a campfire, and all around had an incredible time! Will definitely come back.

Beautiful property, wonderful hosts
Once again, we had a wonderful stay at Slippery Rock. Great fishing this trip. It was hot but there was a fantastic breeze off the river. The water level of the river was down since our last visit therefore there was a nice shoreline to check out with the dogs as well. Can't say enough about the friendliness of our host and hostess. Lovely people who are out to be sure you have everything you need and enjoy your stay.

This was our second Summer back at John and Pat's property and it was perfect! We stayed in Site 2 which has the perfect mix of sun and shade. We paddled the canoe out to the islands, went swimming, did lots of fishing and also explored the property's trails. John and Pat were amazing hosts, coming to welcome us and drop off firewood, even taking us and the kids for a tour of the property - the conservation work being done is amazing.

This was our favorite camping experience in a long time! John and Pat have taken such amazing care of their conserved land. Sites were very well maintained and spaced out, and the meadows and trails were so peaceful. Perfect spot to canoe and enjoy all of the waterfront! There is so much to do and enjoy here- highly recommend.

Absolutely loved the tiny cabin and the glamping experience. Stunning place in solitude and to get away. Cabin was exactly as it was described. John and Pat were very helpful and personally greeted on arrival and helped to set up. Beautiful campfire and stargazing experience, stunning place for sunset and sunrise. Will recommend this place 100%.
