Hipcampers say this spot has amazing views.
We purchased this land a few years ago when our neighbors decided to sell. It abuts our property They used it as a place for their family to gather and camp on during Maine wonderful summer season. It is a beautiful, quiet spot with a great view and a small pond. Hipcamp lets us share this spot and helps pay our property taxes. We are located in the western mountains of Maine in a summer community on Porter Lake. There is a beautiful view of New Vineyard mountain from our 3 acre field.  We have 2 trailer sites with power and water (non potable) and an out house. The field has several fire pits and soft grassy spaces for pitching tents. The camping area is fairly private from our neighbors along the road. The site has a small private pond surrounded by trees you can sit and relax near.  You can (walk/bike/drive) the 1/4 mile down the dirt road to the public beach. The beach has a public dock, boat ramp, swim float, picnic tables and grills. Paddle out to the island and try the rope swing with one of our kayaks or canoes.  Be sure to check out the bald eagles that live in the white pine tree just a little farther down the island. You will hear the loons during your stay and possibly see a mother with her babies on her back. There are also ducks and ducklings and geese with gosling paddling about the lake. The state stocks the lake with trout, splake, and salmon if you like to fish. There is plenty to do right here!

Tom’s land was beautiful, quiet, easily accessible and had everything we needed in a campsite. Tom is a very nice guy and was helpful and accommodating. I would highly recommend the top of the field campsite to anyone.

Nice quiet spot with a short walk to the lake & boat ramp. Tom provides canoes/kayaks for use. This door good for a travel trailer (back in) or small RV.

Level site with a nice view
Hole In The Wall is a hidden gem in the mountains of western Maine! Nice gravel pad and large stone fire pit on a field with a view of the local hills. Firewood is available on site. Just a short walk down to Porter Lake, or up to the top of Taylor Hill for more mountain views. We had no problem getting our 32’ motor home in and out. Tom is a gracious host and offered the use of canoes/kayaks to explore the lake. He also recommended a short trip to Smalls Falls which did— well worth the visit! We will stay here again.
