Recent Hipcampers say this Hipcamp is romantic.
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. Sites here in WildwalkwaysTHREE, are 11 to 15 minutes from parking. Details are below. STREAMSIDE OVERLOOK SITE is "ONLY" for one or two people, take note!!! 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. For an additional $39 or $23 PER BOOK, FOR YOUR CONVENIENCE! We highly recommend this option. Details below For those wanting a real Maine adventure and privacy, this is it. 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. TWO OPTIONS TO FURNISH: OPTION 1: For an additional and optional $39 per Book, YOUR SITE COMES SUPPLIED WITH: a table, two chairs, cooking utensils (pot, sauce pan, cast iron skillet, bbq tongs, spatulas, steamer, plates, soup bowls, large cups, knives-forks-spoons-larger knife ( real ones! ) cooking grate for firepit, grate scraper, veg. peeler, kitchen scissors, 2 oven mitts, paper towels, condiments-salt, pepper, ketchup, sugar, 1 gallon of water and bundle of firewood. WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS UPGRADE, THESE ARE ITEMS MANY FORGET...IT SAVES YOU TIME AND LUGGING AND PROVIDES ALL THE BASICS FOR A COOKOUT EXCEPT THE FOOD! OPTION 2: JUST THE CHAIRS, TABLE, GRILL GRATE AND WOOD $23 The fees for this are collected here. The tent area at this site is charming but not super large due to grade, yet it will comfortably fit a two person tent or two one person tents. The site area itself IS VERY LARGE with dramatic rock ledges. ! Total walk from parking 12 minutes. We supply a four wheeled gorilla cart to get your stuff to sites. (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! It's an awesome site BUT NOT for those bringing tons of stuff. So, we can optionally, partly furnish it for you as above. Let us know when booking. That fee will be collected here. NOTE: you may bring what you want, we are just trying to make it easier for you. For an additional $39 per Book, YOUR SITE COMES SUPPLIED WITH: a table, two chairs, cooking utensils (pot, saucepan, cast iron skillet, bbq tongs, spatulas, plates, bowls, cups, knives-forks-spoons-larger knife ( real ones! ) cooking grate for firepit, scraper, veg. peeler, 2 oven mitts, kitchen scissors, paper towels, condiments-salt, pepper, ketchup, sugar, 1 gallon of water, and bundle of firewood. WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS UPGRADE, IT'S STUFF MANY FORGET, SAVES YOU TIME AND LUGGING AND PROVIDES ALL THE BASICS FOR A COOKOUT EXCEPT THE FOOD! OPTION 2: Just the chairs, table, cooking grate and wood. $23 payable here. Total walk from parking 12 minutes. We supply a four wheeled gorilla cart to get your stuff to sites. (it gets you most of the way) SITE 3 - HOBBIT HOLLOW SITE. This site is Only for 3 or more people. You venture to the back woods thru a gorgeous forest of pine, oak and a few beeches on a curving trail which leads to hollow, right on a salt marsh with a great view. You have the choice of TWO tent sites. One near the fire pit looking out to the marsh, suitable for a small tent... and another is on a grassy knoll just fifty feet away, fine for a LARGE tent. There is running water at the fire pit area. As with the other two sites you can book this furnished, which we suggest. TOTAL WALK FROM PARKING 14 MINUTES. Take note: Local hobbits are friendly...no worries! Bathroom is only a 1--2 minute walk. For an additional $39 per Book, YOUR SITE COMES SUPPLIED WITH: a table, two chairs, cooking utensils (pot, saucepan, cast iron skillet, bbq tongs, spatulas, plates, bowls, cups, knives-forks-spoons-larger knife ( real ones! ) cooking grate for firepit, scraper, veg. peeler, 2 oven mitts, kitchen scissors, paper towels, condiments-salt, pepper, ketchup, sugar, 1 gallon of water, and bundle of firewood.

OPTION 2: Just the chairs, table, cooking grate and wood. $23 payable here. HERE IS A GENERAL DESCRIPTION OF THE CAMPGROUND WELCOME! 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... Lake fishing and of course Camping. Rest by the lake, take in its beauty. Our area is known for truly amazing bird life, bald eagles soaring are a daily sight at the camp sites. 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. At WildwalkwaysTHREE, rock bluffs are part of both campsites! MEANDERING STREAM There is a meandering stream close to all sites, with several small waterfalls. MAINES BEST OCEAN SWIMMING NEARBY! Famous REID STATE PARK and it's huge sandy beach is in this town, just 10 minutes away. At Reid, there is also the famous shallow "lagoon", where water temps are higher, for a more comfortable swim. Small barbeque grills are there for free. (left side of Reid parking lot toward water) Reid is a jewel of the Maine parks and also a great hiking spot: check out the rock bluffs! Up the road a bit, is famous SEWELL POND for lake swimming and kayaking. It's a very scenic area. There is also a public boat launch nearby where you can launch your kayak into a protected ocean inlet with amazing views. 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! The largest collection of gorgeous rhododendrons anywhere in Maine lives here. Trails thru the gardens abound. We offer a guided tour during rhodo bloom season, May thru July, which can be reserved when you book. Yes, you can buy plants. 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! ---------------------------------------------------

BALD EAGLE
Bald Eagle did not fly
The property was littered with trash. I’m not talking used candy wrappers or Coke cans. The owner obviously doesn’t care about this place. Several piles of just junk like old couches, insecticide and fertilizer bottles everywhere The actual campsite called bald eagle was tiny. Really not enough room to even put up a tent and cook some food. The owner of this property could easily clear out a little bit more of the area to come up with a pretty cool camp spot. The camp spots are quite a large distance from the parking.

RED DOOR
I loved tenting on Mark’s land. Highly recommend bug spray, long sleeves/pants since bugs are bad around the time I went in early July 2024. Prepare well and you will have a great time! Mark is welcoming and very helpful. Campsite was pristine!

BABBLING BROOK SITE
Babbling Brook Campsite
We really enjoyed our stay at the Babbling Brook. We saw a bald eagle first thing as we were walking to our campsite. The fireflies were a really pretty sight to see at night. Mark was also a great host, very responsive, and gave us good recommendations for sightseeing and restaurants in the area. We will definitely come again to try out one of the other campsites on the property!
