Located right off of Route 1 in Gouldsboro, Maine, this is a truly unique camping experience. With nearly 20 acres of beautiful forest to explore, camping parties will have it all to themselves. My brother and I purchased this land with the intent to keep it as undisturbed as possible, as the multitude of different ecosystems is breathtaking to experience. From mixed hardwoods, deciduous, conifer stands, and forested wetlands, you will surely be able to experience the full force of what Maine's diverse environment has to offer. Our goal is to not only conserve this land, but to slowly over time use natural methods to improve the overall health of the land and ultimately create a thriving world for animals, pollinators, vegetation, and everything else that makes biotic and abiotic systems function. Overview of Campsite: Nearly 20 acre forest land available for rent by private parties looking to camp. Complex includes: - 16 ft. diameter yurt furnished with full size futon (plastic sheet only, bring your own bedding), sitting chair, end tables, fold up table and chair for eating, games, etc., and a bookshelf with an assortment of interesting reads - Plenty of additonal space inside the yurt for camping cots, sleeping pads, etc. - Additional cleared space for pitching tents - Short trail from the campsite to Chicken Mill Pond where we have a 2-3 person canoe and two single-person kayaks available for use - Private driveway with parking area for 2-3 cars - Direct trail from the parking area to the main camping space - Longer loop trail that offers a more scenic walk through the forest and eventually leads to the campsite - Off-grid outhouse with a composting toilet - Fire pit in the camping area Activities nearby: -5 minute drive from Francis B. Woods Preserve/Frenchman Bay Conservancy, a 438 acre forest with miles of trails that sit above the Maine coastal islands.

Two lovers camping in the woods
My partner and I had a great time at this campsite! We wanted a quiet place away from the city for our 11th anniversary. This place had everything we were looking for, e.g., nature and complete solitude. Matthew was very responsive and even offered us to use his canoe and kayak, plus he had many helpful tools, e.g., lights, paper towels, bug spray, tiki torches, chairs, a table, and the list goes on. We were so thankful for everything that the owner provided that we didn't even have to use all of our gear. I also really loved the two trails! Everything was so peaceful that I wanted to return in the spring.

Hike, camp, chill, w/ your pet
This campsite was the perfect getaway from the city with our dog! Close to Acadia, local preserves, hiking, and pet friendly swimming at Jones Pond. We loved exploring the trails and local fish camps in the area, followed by peaceful campfires back at camp by night. A short hike in and you are at your own private woodside camp. While you may want to bring bug spray in the warmer months due to close proximity of the pond, the owner provides tiki torches, which is added protection from an easy campfire. The owner was quick to respond and extremely hospitable to any questions we had during our stay. We can’t wait to come back as soon as we are able and we are sure it only gets better with the seasons. Be sure to also check out Schoodic point and Lunch on the Wharf for easy day trips. Thanks again to the wonderful hosts!

camping by the pond
Such an awesome campsite! It was very easy to find and it was an easy 0.2 mile walk on the trail from the parking area to the campsite. It is very private and is so peaceful. There is a small pond that you can walk to and take a canoe out on !

Wonderful Scenery
It was a beautiful sight. Nice short hike through the green woods to the sight. We were able to set up our tent and hang out. Didn't make it down to the water but definitely look forward to checking it out the next time we stay.
