450 feet of cove frontage next to Cobscook Bay State Park. Paved boat launch next door, with a dock, thick stand of trees along the road, and a clearing inside. People marvel at the property and relax. Hand carry launch very close to the campsites.

My wife and I loved camping at Elmer’s Cove! It had a great view of the water and was absolutely beautiful. Great safe and reliable spot to camp!! Will be coming back.

camping with our pup.
Nothing like some off grid camping in someone's back yard. But we loved it. The view around the property and park next door was pretty awesome. Lots of places to hike and only a few minutes from Canada. The owner was a sweetheart and allowed us to stay one night because we came in so late and had no destination. Out house wasn't bad, lots of firewood and water if needed. Our pup loved exploring the land and was trying to catch some animals 😁

Stunning views and wonderful host
Stunning location! We were fortunate to find Elmer’s after all of the state campgrounds closed. Had a wonderful paddle and stunning views each morning! Alfred is a fantastic host with an incredible list of local recos :-)

Beautiful spot! Picnic table, firewood, spring potable water and even tiki lamps all included. The only thing that would make it better would be a toilet seat in the outhouse 😎
