2024 total eclipse

The Evergreen Conservation Area was recognized as a federal conservation area starting in 2020. There are several miles of well maintained trails through the deep forest and along the pristine waterfront. This is a secluded conservation area with two remote cabins. This is a unique opportunity: you will have the entire conservation area and the two mini cabins just for your group.  (Even if you only have one person or a small group you are still welcome to reserve the site.)This is a secluded conservation area with two remote cabins. This is a unique opportunity: you will have the entire conservation area and the two mini cabins just for your group.  (Even if you only have one person or a small group you are still welcome to reserve the site.) The lake cabin and campsite are situated at a panoramic point on Black Brook Pond. Campers can choose to stay in the two cabins or camp in tents. There are 2 kayaks and a canoe available for no extra charge. The lake cabin is a single room cabin with one double bed and a bunk bed with sweeping lake views. The forest cabin is a single room cabin with two double beds and small open loft.  There are five beds total, but can sleep 8 if doubles are used.  (These are platform beds. Bedding is not supplied.) These are "primitive" cabins, they are solid, warm, and dry but have no running water, insulation or electricity.  Tents can also be set up for extra sleeping areas. Please note the pond is very shallow in this area so swimming is not available here but there are many lake and river swimming areas nearby.  Please note the parking area is a 10 minute walk from the cabins. This is not an RV camping site, sorry. (However you park an RV in parking area then walk to cabins and tent areas.) You may bring up to a total of 8 guests if you share a beds or use tents. Groups of over 8 people will be considered on a case by case basis. Please contact host for more information. Please note: this is not your typical drive up campsite. It is a short hike to your campsite and you need to collect your own firewood. However if you have done remote camping before or are excited to try new adventures, you will be able to enjoy a hidden spot of Maine! Because cabins are not heated, the season will close in November.

The lake front cabin was amazing! So quiet and peaceful. We also stayed in the cozy cabin which was perfect! Easy to find, even in the dark!

My friend and I stayed here for two nights and it was perfect!! The land is very private and provides a wonderful off grid experience. There were still a few loons when we were there at the beginning of October and being able to enjoy the scenery by canoe was an added bonus! Definitely pack light as there is a short hike to the cabin!

My partner and I very last minute wanted a place to stay after camping and hiking in the rain the previous day and Dan really hooked us up. The place was great + I couldn’t say enough kind things about the host! Thank you so, so much!

Great place to relax and unwind
We loved the atmosphere of this camp! We didn’t realize there were two camps booking this trip. We did end up getting there late. We stayed at cozy cabin that evening. The trail was marked well. The drive way leading into the camp and trail could have be marked better. The next morning we went down to the water front camp. Instantly moved all our gear down. Such a beautiful area. Listening to the loons all night was just amazing. Our dogs absolutely loved it as well! We brought fire wood but a chain saw would be better as it’s a good little walk to the vehicles. Bring a propane lantern and enjoy these beautiful cabins. We will definitely be back. Something about no cellphone reception and open water just clears the mind. 20-30 mins back to town and Barry’s general store. Cute little store! We carried in our propane cooking supplies. It’s some effort to get in there. It’s an easy trail but not so much carrying supplies. We used a heavy duty garden wagon. It worked pretty decent but still effort. Worth every bit of it! Bring a pillow ,sheets and sleep bags and relax and unwind!

Weekend getaway
The evergreen conservation area cabins were very comfortable. It was great that we had the whole place to ourselves and could bring our dogs. We had a great time even in the rain!
