23 acres of rolling blueberry barrens interspersed with Maine granite boulders and ledges leading down to over ~1/3 mile of private tidal beach frontage on the Salt Pond (Atlantic Ocean)!  

Share the view with deer, bald eagles, wild turkeys and tons of local flora and fauna as you walk the ~1 mile road which rings the property. 

There are three site options, each with their own appeal.  Both are easily accessible from the main road, but removed enough for peace, and have direct water access!

SITE 1 is more removed, and is not visible from the main road, It has a more expansive blueberry field view. This site has tenting options in the gravel road by the picnic table/fire barrel, or in the blueberry field itself (walking access only). SITE 1 shares a driveway with SITE 3 (see Salt Pond Perfection SITE 3 TENTS ONLY listing), so if there are campers at those sites you may see them walk by you on their way to their site, but each are private once they are at the actual site. 

Walk a 1/4 mile path through the blueberry fields to get down to your own tidal cove - take a dip in the cold Atlantic if you’re brave at high tide, skim the serene Salt Pond waters in your kayak, or go clamming or fishing if you want to work for your dinner!

SITE 2 is grassy and closer to the water.  The parking area and picnic table is visible from the main road, but you can pitch a tent on the lower portion beside the water which is not visible from the road.  ***UPDATE this road is really washed out at the top - SUV/truck/high-clearance vehicles recommended***

5 min drive from Blue Hill town center, Blue Hill Mountain (more hiking!) and its Bay (more swimming!)- 45 min drive to either Bar Harbor/Acadia National Park, Holbrook Island Sanctuary, the historic Castine waterfront, or the quaint fishing villages of Deer Isle and Stonington.

Explore Downeast Maine away from the crowds, at the most beautiful blueberry base you'll see!

What an incredible spot! Keisha was great to communicate with and had some great recommendations of what to do in the area. The site was private, views fantastic and so nice to have access to the water (the dogs enjoyed that most!). We will definitely be back!

Great place to stay, plenty of room to pick where you would like to pitch your tent. The stream close by leading into the pond is very peaceful. Lakeisha was a great host, extremely helpful and responded quickly.

If you are staying at site 2, I would highly recommend parking by the road and not attempting to drive closer to the site. No issue at all to walk - it takes 30 seconds. If you don’t have 4WD you might not make it back out.

I really love the site and the hostess was very nice. The views are beautiful especially sunrise and sunset. Site two is nice and secluded.

I would not recommend staying at this property at site 2 until the driveway washout is fixed with any type of towable trailer or RV.

Beautiful campsite, will definitely be back to this one! Backed our small RV into site one and it felt very private and secluded, with beautiful views of the sunrise, the bay, and rocky blueberry fields. Nearby CoOp in Blue Hills is a great place to stock up on food. Potable water available nearby at supermarket from garden hose near front entrance

Salt Pond Perfection was indeed perfect! we stayed for two nights (10/1 - 10/3) and saw a bald eagle, 2 herons, a group of deer, and several other interesting birds. The fall colors were beautiful and the weather was ideal! The campsite was clean and quiet and the views were unbeatable. One of the most beautiful campsites I’ve ever had the pleasure to stay in. Lakeisha was helpful and prompt in her responses. I would highly recommend this spot to anyone, with no reservations!

Super beautiful views and very private camping spot. It’s a little tight with our 20 ft camper but we managed to back it into a perfect little spot. Lakesha was also a very good host, setting up solar lamps to light the trails down to the salt pond. Overall 10/10.
