A rare opportunity to experience a tidy, scenic New England working farm built in the Civil War era. This protected Forever Farm has 72 acres of pastures, hayfields, ponds, woodland, and 1/3 mile of unspoiled frontage on the Piscataquis River. We offer two exclusive private RV sites: One field edge site on the riverfront, one wooded site looking down over the pastures and farmstead.
Bird- and wildlife-watchers, photographers, artists, and families will appreciate the farm scenery, ecosystems and inhabitants, including bald eagles. Wander a mile and a half of trails through forest, hayfields, vegetable gardens, apple orchard, ponds, and riverbank. See chickens, goats, donkeys, horses and cows enjoying their best life. Fish for trout, wade in the river, birdwatch, paint, or reflect by our pond.
Site Amenities: Each private site has a picnic table, a campfire ring and a unique setting that is hard to beat. Potable water is available at the farmstead. (No electric hookups, dump stations or toilet/bathroom facilities.) Campfire wood harvested from our own woodlot is available for purchase. (Maine state law prohibits importing firewood). Seasonal farm stand. Please respect that our house, barns, buildings and animals are private. A minimum stay of 2 nights is required.
Considerations for safety: Stay at your own risk. Grass and/or gravel surfaces on campsites and trails may be uneven. Unprotected access to waterbodies. Daily farming activities will occur. Livestock are confined by electric fencing. Your pets must be effectively controlled to protect them, our animals and wildlife.
Off-farm activities: Hike the Appalachian Trail or Borestone Mountain, explore waterfalls in the region, visit local restaurants and micro-breweries, bike our local back roads, or paddle your own kayak or canoe on a scenic local pond with eagle nests and bass fishing (just 15 minutes away). We are located less than 2 miles from the center of Dover-Foxcroft and its conveniences, and within an hour of Monson, Greenville (Moosehead Lake), and Bangor.

We had a wonderful stay in our Class C camper.
The river was a bit low, but we managed a short canoe float, putting in directly from the campsite.
The hosts were friendly and very helpful. They answered every question and gave us ideas and directions to the places we wanted to go. If you like to canoe or kayak, we highly recommend the 20 minute trip to West Shirley Bog (another suggestion given to us by the awesome hosts). It was remote and beautiful.
We drove over 7 hours to camp here and it was well worth it.
You couldn't ask for a better location or better hosts.
We hope to come back again!!
