The South Campsite is on the shore of Little Dyer Pond. Little Dyer is a secluded 'great pond' with no points of public access – where else can you get that in Midcoast Maine? The pond is quiet, has a few small islands, and extensive wetland habitat at its north and south ends. Whether you’re an angler, botanist, artist, or just someone looking for a quiet place to camp either of Little Dyer Pond campsites will suit you well.

The South Campsite is only about 1.5 miles from the parking area. There is no platform, but plenty of smoothed and cleared ground – enough to pitch three backpacking tents. The canoes and boathouse are very close. The South Campsite features a picnic table and fire pit right on the shore of the lake.

The South Campsite is located at Midcoast Conservancy's 1,000 acre, award winning Hidden Valley Nature Center, and a portion of the booking fees goes to support our mission to protect and restore vital lands and waters on a scale that matters.

Beautiful, quiet, remote campsite! Easy hike in that was well worth it.

Gorgeous view right on the water, not a bad hike in. The site is barely off the path, so expect to see hikers and other campers passing through occasionally. There really isn't any flat ground off the path on which to set up a tent, and we (2 very small ladies) had a tough time contending with roots. The fire pit was delightful, be prepared to gather firewood and bring a 5 gallon bucket to fill with water if you plan to use it.

Great experience! Just be ready for a good walk and pay close attention to the map (learned the hard way) just wish you could park closer. The portable water is not close either so you have to bring everything back plus water gets very heavy plus a very long walk. Besides that as far as camp site great experience and great view and very clean. Great communication as well.
