Nomadic camping
Best for self-contained campers. There are no toilets, showers, or potable water at this Hipcamp.
Tucked away in the Lake Umbagog wilderness, we are a small privately-owned farm with the wonders of the area surrounding us. Boating and fishing? Check. Hiking and mountain-biking? Check. Swimming and Sailing? Check! All the fun and memories that go with camping and bonfires and outdoor cooking! Check! IMPORTANT PLEASE NOTE: We are intentionally remote, secluded, and off-grid. We are best accessed by water (1.3 mile paddle or motorboat), with a seasonal (May 15-December 1) 9-mile very rough (4wd) logging access road (minimum vehicle clearance 8in). For first-time guests arriving by road, you will need to be guided in---the property is impossible to find on your own (no gps, no map). However you decide to arrive, we are happy to guide you at no extra charge. We do have cellular phone service on site and shoreline but not on the logging road in. [There is unfortunately no way for us to make the property accessible for guests who need the use of personal mobility equipment. Also, from experience, we MUST caution those with medical conditions that this is a WILDERNESS location, at least two hours from any medical facilities and very difficult to even medevac.] We have a small fishing boat (paddle only), 1 kayak, 3 mountain bikes, and a canoe for rent; firewood for purchase on site; your choice of spots to pitch a tent or use our raised platform. Join us for astonishing sunsets, breathtaking wildlife, and beautiful gardens. We can't wait to meet you!

Umbagog is one of my all time favorite camping spots - the state park doesn't offer remote views and waterfront like this without having to boat out. My friends and I had a great time and spent so much time out in the water swimming, kayaking, fishing, and paddle boarding. Road in is definitely doable if you take your time, and have decent ground clearance (my little Tiguan made it).

Super remote and idyllic spot far off the beaten path. We didn’t paddle in, but drove in instead. It’s 10miles on a logging road (takes a full hour since you can only go about 10mph), but I highly recommend bringing a 4x4 or at least AWD. You should also have at least 6-8” ground clearance as some rocks are quite large. There’s also a quick water crossing which I would say is about a foot or so deep and maybe 20ft long. Alternatively you can canoe in which is probably what I recommend. That way you can unload your gear right at your camp spot. Otherwise, you have to park your car about 1/3 mile away from camp and carry it in. There is an ATV, but unfortunately it was out of commission during our stay so we carried it in/out with the help of a wheelbarrow. Skip and Catherine were very nice and welcoming.

This is truly a magical spot. Great access to the lake and stellar views. Not to mention the hospitality from the hosts, couldn’t expect any better!

Ideal site, off grid w/ 4 bars
Cathrine and Skip, have a great site on Umbagag Lake, beautifully secluded. I would consider this site for a multi day booking and bring kayaks. Access is via logging road or short paddle across lake. I had dogs with me so paddling not option.

amazing. The site with the lake view is georgous. We had a great time with the host. Very welcoming and great discussions. She was responding fast and guided us to find the site at arrival. You have to handle a 9miles logging road to access the site. It took some times to get there but it enhance the wilderness atmosphere. Enjoy
