Dereck was an awesome host, he noticed rain was projected during our stay and set up tarps, dry wood, and a canopy over our campsite so we’d stay dry! We thoroughly enjoyed the visits from the chickens in the morning, and the dogs were super sweet! Loved our stay, despite the rain, and would 100% recommend it to anyone looking for a REAL Maine experience.

Connors family campground is hosted by Eric and his wife, this campground is lovely place with all his pet animals. Campsite is very private. People will love who wants to isolate themselves with other campers. Most importantly Eric's hospitality is heaven 😊🏕️

I booked 1 night stay on my way to Arcadia. It was easy to find and Dereck & his wife were extremely welcoming. As the sun was getting ready to set Dereck showed me the way to access the water to watch it go down. We sat by the fire pit and listened to music as a couple friends stopped by to enjoy the full moon. It was safe, enjoyable and I loved it! 😍

This was exactly what we needed. There are a couple different tent sites--one a .05 minute walk from the house/parking and the other more private one a .15 mile walk from the house/parking. The further one has a nice fire pit, picnic bench and Dereck provided tools (saw, clippers) so that we could clear more space if needed. He had also thought to put out a ground tarp over the best tent site so that it would be dry. There is a clean compostable toilet between the two campsites in a makeshift bathroom tent (tarped lean-to like structure) and Dereck provided us with toilet paper when we arrived. There are chickens and a goat on the property as well as two friendly dogs. While we spent most of our time in nearby Acadia park and Bar Harbor, we had a lovely stay at the Connors Family Compound.

The host and his family were very friendly. It was fun to see all the animals we got to pet the baby chickens.
