Sacred Nectar Sanctuary

11 sites · RVs, Tents280 acres · North Sandwich, NH
Sacred Nectar rests on the land of the Wabanaki Tribes. This land, now known by it's view gifting fields, is one of Sandwich's most treasured gems. The Historic Farm was purchased by Townsend Thorndike from the first colonizing family to claim ownership of this unceded land, the McCrillis family. It was Town's place to get away from the busy life. As time went on and his money dwindled and plans to sell off some of the land arose. Townsend's son, Nick, foresaw a devastating development of conventional homes that would diminish the soul of this sacred land that held so much magic. So, Nick decided to move back to the homestead to create an example of what a healthy life for the land and its inhabitants looks like. HipCamp was the first step towards sharing and opening up the land to create an ecofriendly, Intentional lifestyle. One in which we hope to share our way of being that brings awareness to the natural world we have fallen so far from. Nick and his tribe of like minds are creating a holistic, educational, retreat, workshop, and event center where people can come to learn how to co-exist in a harmonious relationship with nature and each other. Thank you for being a part of the healing. We hope you enjoy what we have created here :)

Slippery Rock Trails LLC

6 sites · Lodging, Tents400 acres · Greene, ME
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.

Whether you bake on the rocks after dipping, or toss a fly in a quiet pool, the river will soothe your soul. Explore endless mountains streams, trails to the Appalachian Trail, and remote dirt roads in the heart of the Mahoosucs from your secluded walk-in low impact tent site with privy. Deep swimming holes and trout fishing beckon. There are three sites: #1: Riverside (more secluded),#2:Hillside(closest to the parking), and #3: Fireside. The hillside and fireside sites can combine for a group although are at a short distance from each other. If weather conditions permit, all campers can share the fire circle and table. The Riverside has its own table.

Tucker N.’s land

2 sites · Lodging, Tents105 acres · Alna, ME
Our cabin is an off grid post and beam structure that we built 6 years ago. It's got a full kitchen, wood stove, and screened porch. The water is limited as is the electricity - there is a 60 gallon tank and two batteries charged by solar. Which means if we are without sun for a few days, this will effect the batteries for the lights and the water pump. We also fill a 150 gallon potable water tank outside of the cabin to supply water in the event the power runs out (we also provide a 5 gallon jug to bring water inside from the tank). There are a generous supply of lanterns (both battery and inflatable solar) flashlights and string lights for back up lighting. This is a small two story timber frame cabin off grid and secluded deep in the woods. It has limited water/power with a separate outhouse. The cabin has a king sized bed in the loft with a child size fold down bunk above it; there is also a pull out couch on the first floor. As well as a kitchen, screened in porch and fire pit. Linen, dishes and utensils are not included please bring all that you need. There is a propane 4 burner stove with oven and solar shower bags. Trash and campfire wood is included. We are very busy with kids and work, we try our best to clean and re-supply between guests but it is not always possible, please let us know if something needs attention!

Insulated Tiny Cabin

1 site · Lodging5 acres · Freeport, ME
We have an 8X8 cabin available in a small grove on the edge of our homestead/medicinal herb farm. The cabin has a full size bed (bring your own pillows and bedding) with some floor space for a small cot or sleeping pad. The space allows for two adults and two small children, anymore than that would be very tight. The cabin is insulated so the road traffic isn’t bad but it is noticeable at certain hours when the window is open. There is a large parking area with about a 100 yard walk across a lawn and then another 100 yard walk through an uneven wooded trail to the cabin. We have two composting toilet outhouses available for guests use that we take care of on a daily basis.Inside of our large greenhouse, there is a hot water outdoor semi-private shower, only biodegradable soap that we provide can be used. There is also a kitchen and seating area in the greenhouse with a propane grill, toaster oven, microwave and electric kettle and small coffee maker/French press. The greenhouse is a communal space that our family uses as a wood shop and greenhouse space so while the kitchen and shower area are kept clean and clear for guests, the rest of the greenhouse is a working space that can be in various states depending on what projects we have going on. Dogs are allowed but they need to be leashed due to our free ranging ducks and the closeness of the road. We can occasionally provide eggs and some veggies and herbs for tea for a small fee if it’s arranged in advance.We provide a fire pit and kindling but ask that you bring your own fire wood that has been purchased in the area so as not to bring in any new pests.The parking area is large enough if you want to bring a boat or trailer.Our spot is 3 miles from downtown Freeport and is located near a commuter road so it’s easy access to many spots.Freeport is a coastal town with two state parks, lots of great diverse trails which are well maintained and lots of restaurants/breweries. We are a short drive from Portland, Brunswick and Bath which both have lots of parks and restaurants. Lisbon falls and new Glouster also have great trails and restaurants that are amazing yet less crowded than Portland. We are a short drive from family destinations like the desert of Maine in Freeport, Maine wildlife park in grey and the old orchard boardwalk.  We are about 40 min from popham beach to the north and 40 min to crescent beach, old orchard beach and Scarborough beach to the south.As hosts, we are around if you need us but happy to give as much space and privacy as you would like. If we are out working in the fields or hanging out with our kids, we are happy to give tours or talk about any of the gardens or plants that catch your interest.  This is a working farm so walking around must be at your own risk, there are bees and ticks and some tripping hazards to be mindful of.We have rented this cabin through Air b-n-b for several years. We have switched to Hipcamp as it is more aligned with our values.

WildWalkWays at Eastern Plant

10 sites · Tents25 acres · Georgetown, ME
In 1987 a long search for the ideal, rare plant nursery ended when I found this property. Years of planting and careful tending have now brought me to the campground phase I've always wanted. This property is blessed with fields, meadows, big trees, lake, streams, beavers, cliffs, bald eagles and more. (AND LATELY THE RARE STELLAR SEA EAGLE IN THIS AREA!) Located in lower mid coast Maine, near historic Bath and famous Reid state park. You drive thru the nursery on a private dirt lane, then park and walk 2 to 10 minutes to private campsites. Our place has a true wilderness feel yet is close to civilization! Come join me for a day or more! Note the nursery is park like...there is NO commercial feel to it. GREETINGS CAMPERS. WILDWALKWAYS is a great back to nature place to camp ...with incredible reviews, privacy and big sites and only minutes from famous REID State Park. Bald Eagles soar daily here! PLEASE READ THE RULES SECTION AND ARRIVAL TIME INFO BEFORE BOOKING ....... We RANKED SECOND in the state in 2020 and many new friends were made! THIS SECTION HAS 3 TRULY EXCITING SITES OFFERING GREAT VALUE AND DRAMA! TWO OF THOSE SITES ARE HUGE! (7 SITES IN OTHER SECTIONS) PLEASE PLEASE READ the rules and regulations BEFORE booking and ask questions BEFORE BOOKING. ...... ...... ALL our sites are also, optionally available stocked, in two ways for $39 or $23, with amenities people forget ...saves you TIME AND LOTS of lugging.

MOUNTAIN MEADOWS SITE can accommodate 5 people. HOBBIT HOLLOW SITE can accommodate 6 people. It is ONLY for 2 or more people READ THE GLORIOUS REVIEW FROM CHRISTINA OF THE STREAMSIDE OVERLOOK SITE. FROM THE HEART on the Coronavirus: our campsites are huge and clean, with plenty of SPACE between them, there are NO crowds here. Bathroom tents are cleaned and sanitized regularly. We are the 'un campground' campground. Our rural area of Maine is a wonderful place with clean air. ENJOY NATURE, ENJOY CAMPING! Inquire with questions, thank you. CLIFFS! STREAM! PRIVACY! ADVENTURE! FURNISHED! THREE GREAT SITES! Site 1-Streamside Overlook, Site 2-Mountain Meadows and Site 3-Hobbit Hollow These sites can be PARTLY FURNISHED with two options.

To get to two of these two sites, you walk the same relatively flat logging road as the other sites: which is about an eight minute walk from parking. Then, you venture down a short, 20 foot hill with rock steps, to a small mossy island with giant 5 foot Ostrich Ferns. Take the left fork and really cool "boardwalk" to the dramatic Mountain Meadows Site, which leads to a small waterfall. Take the right fork to the exciting and magical "2 level," Streamside Overlook Site. To get to the HOBBITT HOLLOW SITE there are no steps but it's a longer walk, about 14 minutes. Hobbitts will never hurt you. Site 1- Streamside Overlook: This site for one or two people only! Once onto the small island, a one minute walk over rustic boardwalk trails takes you to a stone bridge over a small stream, to the Streamside Overlook site. Once across, you are greeted by a neat fire pit right AT THE STREAMS EDGE, with space for chairs next to the stream. Then a short, 20 foot trek up a hill leads to your tent site! The site dramatically looks down to the woodland stream, the fire pit and off to a salt marsh to the right. In back of you are huge cliffs, giant moss covered rocks and privacy. It's an awesome site BUT NOT for those bringing tons of stuff. So, we can partly furnish it for you. NOTE: you may of course bring what you want, we are just trying to make it easier for you. 12 MINUTES FROM PARKING.

(it gets you most of the way) STREAMSIDE OVERLOOK SITE IS AMAZING! Site 2-MOUNTAIN MEADOWS SITE is facing the salt marsh, waterfall and gigantic, mossy boulders. It has a huge footprint and genuinely feels like you are in a national park. Rock cliffs covered in moss are your dramatic backdrop. Trees along the marsh have been limbed up to give you a great view. A cool boardwalk access is the final trail. This is perhaps my most favorite spot on the entire property. It can also be supplied like STREAMSIDE OVERLOOK and has a truly beautiful fire pit All of our sites are great, these two are showpieces!

A TRUE CAMPING EXPERIENCE AWAITS YOU, WITH BIG SPACIOUS SITES, GORGEOUS SCENERY AND SOLITUDE! PLEASE JOIN US FOR A MAINE ADVENTURE! Our welcoming campsites are called Maine WILDWALKWAYS. You will love these genuine, back to nature tent sites with so many creature comforts, all in an amazing, unspoiled setting! Read our story about the beautiful camp sites and the gorgeous scenery of the area, then choose from 10, highly scenic private sites in 3 connected sections. Please scroll thru the pictures above to get a visual of the actual tent sites. 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! You will discover 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. IN 2020 OUR SECTION 2, RANKED 2ND PLACE IN MAINE. Thanks to all who stayed, making the year a booming success! Plus, we made many enhancements for an even better experience in 2021. WildWalkWays is a unique and really cool small campground with ten tent sites total, in 3 sections with different price points. Our sites are PRIVATE & 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 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. 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. 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 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. 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. BOOKING You can now check in as EARLY as 10 am for a small fee. (Inquire when booking). Regular book in time is 3 to 6 PM. COMMUNICATIONS We communicate with campers after you book, thanking you and giving directions or answering any questions you might have. When you get here, we provide FREE USE use of a four wheeled gorilla cart to get belongings to your site. Campers love it. You will get a handout on each site, basic information, local attractions and things to do. Please let us know of any requests before you get here and we will do our best to help you out. Feel free to ask anything or how we can help. LAKE There is a scenic lake on the property, bring your canoe! We offer Canoeing... Hiking... Birdwatching... Biking...

PHOTOGRAPHY This is a TRUE photographers paradise! GO NO FURTHER, It's as simple as that! HIKE All sites have direct, easy access to our scenic logging road that borders a 150 acre nature reserve and its hiking trails. Dramatic rock bluffs and moss covered ledges are near the campsites.

Up the road a bit, is famous SEWELL POND for lake swimming and kayaking. It's a very scenic area.

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!

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 and Saturdays 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. 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. _____________________________________________ COME CAMP AT MAINE WILDWALKWAYS ...A GREAT BACK TO NATURE PLACE! ---------------------------------------------------
