Within a 30-minute drive from the Thompson Island Information Center.
Before you make a reservation read the description of each sit, there a 5 different names of the choices with different options. . Read all of the info, when you submit your request please include/verify the following info: Is everyone in your group at least 21?/No kids or pets traveling with you.? What sort or camping unit.? Tent/RoofTent/RV/Hammock/Trailer./Van./ Box Truck or creative bus conversion/Cowboy Camper…? Just tell us ! Your reservation request will not be accepted until we have those responses so including that with your reservation request is what we need to know. Several of us live/work/answer messages here. Clarity with your request is beneficial. Our camping section is located on the property of Kisma Preserve. Home to black bear, local mammals , and our favorite, wolves. Most of the staff live here full time all year. 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 which begins about 5 minutes away at Thompson’s Island and the bridge to Mt Desert Island. We are close to basic necessities, and a step away from the masses. We do educational tours daily and if interested these tours are arranged by reservation too. We may allow camping in Winter months but if it is between November and May it is very important to call and find out the accessibility as weather impacts everything. The shower will likely be unavailable in freezing months and some sites are closed. CALL and speak with a staff member before reserving. Self contained Adventure Vans and tent campers with Winter Gear and Rooftop Tents can be accommodated. Or If you want to have a solid 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.! Pulling in late, and leaving early for a typical Sunrise reservation.? We can also accommodate that if we know that is all you want. Traveling with your horse.? Talk to us about an Equine site. The Biker’s Bunkhouse is ideal for motorcycle travelers as it shelters both the guest and the Bike/s. Always call, we can answer all questions to get you into the right site for your style of adventuring. With each listing be sure to read all the information. If you are interested in a spontaneous camping adventure, if your luggage got lost or if you just don’t want to deal with transporting camping gear we can connect you with a local gear renter who can supply you with a basic box of necessities including a tent. Last minute reservation requests may not work via the reservation site but we may very likely have a space. Any questions, call two zero seven six six seven three two four four, calling is the only way to be certain we receive your communications.

We’ll be back for more
We loved camping here! Our site was very secluded and had a nice stream running right through it. My fiancé was catching frogs the whole time we were there. The firepit is right on the edge of the water so the view and privacy can’t get much better. I hung some lights up on the branches over the water and watched the water flow all night. Taking the wolf and bear tour was an unexpected treat too. Definitely going to go back.

Did what
It was a great easy to use rough campsite. Its definitely a place where you use to sleep. It is close to body of waters so there are bugs. Overall, I would stay there again even with all of the bugs.

Tips for using this site
Time spent there was last week of June. Loved it, here are some tips: The BIG advantage of this site over a lot of others, and some of the ones on this property, is SHADE!!! It got into the mid 80s and very humid while I was there, not comfortable weather. This site is down by a small stream, and there are trees/shrubs around the area. No matter the time of day, even with the sun shifting you can find shade on the site and avoid the sun, you'll just have to move around a bit. The ground: it is a bit rough, and does have a mild downward slope to it. If you plan on tenting it, you might want some kind of cut brush or leaves to stuff under your tent to level it off. Easy way to avoid the problem: I used a Haven tent, one of those ones that hangs in the air between trees. There aren't any huge trees on site, but there are three locations where you can hang a Haven on the site. The best one is in the area to the left of the site, the owners recently cleared that out. A tent can be hung in there, and kept in the shade. If you are feeling bold, the other two locations let you hang the tent over the small stream onsite. If you plan on doing that, bring a set or two of whoopie slings, you'll need the extra reach. Noise at night: It's a good idea to bring earplugs if bullfrogs throw you off. The sound of the stream at night was great, but during my time, each night there were about 2-3 frogs croaking, sounds like that throw me off. Would use this site again for sure.

Tent camping here was truly amazing it was both peaceful and adventurous. Each site was well maintained with a fire pit and grill part for cooking on the fire! The outdoor shower got hot water and even had a sink to brush your teeth or wash dishes. The entire staff was very friendly and welcoming, even inviting us to fire which we enjoyed immensely! We’ll be returning the next time we get a chance, thank you Heather!
