Our camping section is located on the property of Kisma Preserve. Home to black bear, local mammals , and our favorite, wolves. We live here full time and have been here in one way or another for over 30 years. The sounds of the night are magical. Unleash your imagination and camp here away from the crowds you may find within the local Acadia National Park area. Close to basic necessities, and a step away from the masses. We do educational tours daily by reservation. We may allow RV camping in Winter months but if it is between November and May it is very important to call and find out. If you want to have a soid roof , screens and a fabulous view ask about reserving our Cadillac Mountain View Loft or if the idea of being naked under the stars is appealing opt for our Raw and Rough site.! Always call, we can answer all questions and get you into the right spot for you !

The wolf experience is well worth the cost. Hip Camp is a flea outfit. Call Kisma directly to book a once in a lifetime experience. Hip camp has continued to harass me although I have requested them to leave me alone many times.

Unique animal camping experience!
Neat place to stay! I'll start with the animals, since that is the truly unique part. I can now say that I've drank my coffee while watching a bear eat his breakfast, and a wolf jumping for joy waiting to go for his walk. The owner allowed us to roam and check out the animals as we pleased (at a safe distance of course). The porcupines and goats were a cute addition! We originally booked for a tent site, but we're offered to upgrade for a fee. We accepted since it was supposed to be cold & rainy (glad we did, because a storm came through that would've blown us away). The loft cabin was very spacious and well-crafted. It does need to be accessed by a ladder, which I was a bit nervous about, but got used to quickly. There is a neat space below the loft where we had a propane firepit. It warmed up the space a little bit and was nice to sit by while it was raining and we couldn't have a fire. Great experience, would love to go back when it's warm out!

The raw and rough campsite felt very secluded even though we weren't too far away from the main area. We enjoyed the firepit which is right next to a tiny little stream. We loved hearing the wolves howl in the distance. Heather and her crew were helpful and available when needed. We came and went from the camp as we pleased. The Porta potty was clean and not too far. I would camp here again.

Beautiful views from your comfy bed
Exactly as described. Everything is clearly explained in the advert. It is funky, it is unique, it is safe, it is rustic. This is place is for the adventurers. The bed was warm and comfy. I could see the full moon and fall foliage from the warmth of my bed. Two additional folks came and brought their own gear and camped in the loft with us. We had zero worries about bug bites or inclement weather tucked up in our loft. We spent a gorgeous night under the full moon by the fire.

Awesome, unique experience!
Everything was great -- Heather was very responsive and accommodating. We stayed in the cabin/barn which was very nice - comfortable bed in the finished loft area. The land was beautiful and I definitely recommend scheduling a tour of the preserve.

Doesn’t return calls til the day before Then when you do talk to someone they are extremely rude, annoyed that they have to talk to you Not very welcoming when you get there Nothing how it appears online You are tenting in a cleared patch of an overgrown field And all they supply with is a place to have a fire and a bucket for water Nothing else. There wolves were hybrids at best. We packed up and left…didnt even stay

Very underwhelming and very overpriced. It’s a constant reminder your in the east where nothing is wild and exciting and everything is tame.

Great experience for a great price!
Me and some friends stayed for 3 nights at Kisma preserve and we loved it! The hostess/employees are very friendly and generous and the animals are beautiful! The camp sites and Porto-potties are very clean. The location is great too, right near bar harbor/Acadia. My one suggestion would be to add a curtain on the outdoor shower. I would definitely come back next year and bring more friends!

A nice spot off the main road
This camping spot was very nice. We had one in back which was private and the view was very pretty. We could hear the road, but it wasn’t a problem. The outdoor shower was a nice feature because the park campgrounds in Acadia do not have showers at all. Having to come and go through the gate made the camping feel very safe. We heard the animals a couple of times, but we never saw them. We were invited to an event with bears, but we were unable to stay. We will definitely be back.

The campsite was lovely, close to another spot but secluded enough to feel private & cozy. There is a little creek behind the camp where birds/frogs were very active, but the site was not buggy at all. We even saw a hummingbird some mornings. Hearing the wolves howling in the distance at night was unique and exciting as well. Overall, this was a beautiful spot to set up base while we explored Acadia (about 15 minutes away). I would love to return when the creek is full and flowing, and to purchase a wolf tour.

hidden in plain sight!
For being right on the main drag this is a gem of a spot. The camp had was far enough away from other campers however we were a little more visible to other campers and the main building then expected. great little fire pit , easy to communicate with host and easy to get in and out from the property.

Great communication and ease in booking camping and tours. Arrival/check-in was quick and simple. Love the secluded camp site. Close to road, but road noise was minimal. Would definitely return!

Really disappointed
Nous étions vraiment enthousiastes à l'idée d'aller vivre une nuit en camping à cet endroit. Voici quelques points que nous avons retenu de cette expérience : - accueil froid et expéditif - aucune allusion aux animaux - terrain de camping entièrement exposé au soleil et sans table à picnic - douche sans intimité - bécosse très ordinaire Mais surtout, attitude inapropriée à cette formule de camping. À titre d'exemple, étant donné que nous n'avions pas de table sur notre emplacement, nous avons pris l'initiative de s'installer sur une bâche près de notre voiture pour le déjeuner. Heather, la propriétaire, nous a demandé de retourner sur notre site de camping immédiatement.

Incredible place
I can't say enough good things about this place. The hosts were incredibly gracious and friendly. They were my family when I was away from my family. My site was amazing. Camped right next to a bear every night! Heard the wolves howling every night. Interacted with many more animals daily. I just left and I already miss it, and the people there. Absolutely will return one day. A special place for sure.

We loved that it was very quiet and peaceful with plenty of room. The price was great in an area where all of the private campgrounds are overpriced and catered to RVs.

Definitely a unique experience camping here. We loved our site under the willow trees. Port-o-potty was clean and outdoor shower was private. Close to Acadia and grocery store.

Camping with animals.
We did the Wolf encounter it was absolutely amazing! the staff here is so friendly and so knowledgeable. There was also a bear name flipper porcupines I pet a really fat skunk! Hah there were chickens everywhere. I then, a single female decided to camp here. I felt so safe but I slept with my doors open so I could hear the wolves. I’m on my way back to Florida but the next time I come to Maine I will be staying here more than just one night! I would recommend this to any animal lover so special!

Camping with freedom and comfort!
My husband and I are in love with Kisma. Absolutely perfect for us. The sunrise view over the field and wildflowers really does it for me, starts my camp mornings off exactly like I want. You won’t be bothered by anyone. At all. Ever. BJ and Heather are amazing at responding (unless on a wolf tour, then obviously they’re understandably busy and get right back yo you after) and are very laid back and comfortable to talk to. The wolves howling at night, goats and exotic birds chatting during the day beyond the house, and the chickens are starting to get so friendly and it tickles me a lot!! So many nooks and crannies to explore around Kisma, antiques, hidden beachy spots, delicious food. Disc golf 2 miles away that was awesome, my husband loved the course, he went days in a row! No hook ups, there’s a porta-potty, potable water access, outdoor shower (not for the overly modest 😂) that I loved, and we are allowed to run our generator! If you’re looking for an open minded, free to be you, laid back as Mainers are, cool as Hell wolf experience, relaxing camp experience…this is your new spot.

Heather was very accommodating. Great people. I would definitely recommend this if you’re interested in hiking Acadia or any other surrounding areas, it was only 20 minutes from great hiking. And the sunrise/sunsets were amazing. Very secure, private camping. Thanks for the memories
