#Next to Cobscook Bay State Park!# #Voted - 2021 Top 10 Best Campsites in Maine# Camping tip - cheap throw pillow is the best way to squish a mosquito in the car or the tent! Tent and RV sites, good clearance on driveway. Tent/sm. veh. sites (tent area 9x14): 1,2,5,6,8,9 RV: 3,4,7. All sites levelled w/fire pits. (firewood included)  Book a specific site, or ask me which. Open interior land, privacy from road,  - clothing-optional inquiries welcomed.  Dark nights for star gazing, 20-foot tidal range - strong currents, be careful kayaking and boating, mid-tide and higher it's good swimming here, also a small spring fed pond to cool off in. Carry in here, or launch for free next door. Good cell signal, (Verizon, AT & T) tower 1.2 miles away. Smart phone hot-spot works for me.

Beautiful site, right on the water. Watched the sunrise over the far shore, over the water, the mudflat, rocks, seaweed, gulls. Watched the clouds roll in and roll out. Relaxed by the fire into the night. A quintessential Maine experience. Nice clean outhouse. Private, peaceful.

Too easy to write a good review, so let’s try something different. No disco with in walking distance. Stars were too bright. Sunset was earlier than desired this November :)
Great spot, Thanks again!

Al was very kind and accommodating to our last minute, late reservation. We had a lovely misty evening with a full moon bay view! Waking up in the morning to the sound of water fowl and beautiful view was amazing! We wished we could have stayed longer! Great amenities, very comfortable. Al waved a friendly good morning to us as we made breakfast. Thank you Al!

Brilliant spot! Amazing views and thoughtful amenities (good firewood included amongst other things). Site 5 was perfect for me in my van. Would have been easy to spend a week there just watching the drama of the tide coming in and out. Really quiet. And still close to Eastport, Cobscook SP, etc. Al was flexible and accommodating when I extended my visit as well as responding quickly to my requests. What took the cake is when he offered to grab a couple of things for from the store on a day I was just hunkered in in the rain. That sort of kindness is a rarity these days. Definitely get there in the daylight and enjoy!

Al is a great host and the views of the cove are amazing. It’s a little less secluded than other sites, but we had plenty of privacy. Overall it was a great spot.

Primitive camping with a view and an especially kind host. The quiet is amazing and watching the tide come in and out brilliant.
