Come explore Midcoast Maine and all its natural beauty!!!
Come pitch a tent in our super private woods, in the valley of central Maine! Enjoy primitive camping, complete with your own firepit. Enjoy your privacy, as the sites are spaced out, and far enough away to listen to the woods, rather then fellow campers. Firewood is available for purchase, and there is plenty of it on the forest floor for the taking as well.
We are rural, but only a short drive in either direction to hit restaurants, breweries, art galleries, and swimming holes! Only 25 minutes to the coastal town of belfast, and 20 minutes to the MOFGA fairgrounds in Unity. Its a half hour drive to augusta or waterville for larger stores if needed.
Please be safe, and respect any fire bans. There is a very small creek on property to wash hands, and collect water for dishes etc.. There is an outhouse on the property. , and power available to charge devices.. As hosts, we are happy to help in any way we can- forgot a blanket? a toothbrush? Just let us know. Need help starting a fire? We are happy to teach you the proper way to start a campfire using natural surounding materials! We want you to enjoy every minute!
At this time we will allow pets, but they must stay on leash. Hot showers are available 12 minutes away at our Community Arts center. Come check out our gallery and shop full of great local artist's work!
As a fellow nature traveler, I welcome you to enjoy the land as your own. Please leave nothing but footprints, and feel free to ask us about all the local must see gems. There are hiking trails out the driveway and just a short drive to some great marked trails and state parks!
If you need anything special for your trip- dont hesitate to ask :) Cheers!

If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
I spent just short of a month at Kimba’s Nature Hostel as the first stop on a sort of walkabout, and I may have fallen for Maine. First and foremost, the hospitality I received made me feel like I was an old friend stopping by after an extended absence. In reality, I’m happy to call the host of this mushroom paradise a new friend that I will be sure to see again.
While visiting Maine Maker’s Society (Kimba’s art coop a few miles down the road) for a quick shower (at first), I was offered food and drink, lively conversation, as well as destination recommendations and lessons in local flora and fauna. The food was delicious, the recommendations lived up to the hype, and I walked away knowing just a little about Maine’s wildlife. I really could not have dreamed of a better place to start wandering the country.
If you are thinking the location is a little out of the way, it is true, the property certainly offers seclusion. However, driving to Moosehead Lake, Acadia, and other well-known Maine destinations allows you to enjoy winding country roads, numerous farm stands, and a Bob Ross palette of colors if traveling in early autumn. If you are looking for a getaway in the woods, stay here! Walk the grounds and notice the hundreds of species of fungi growing everywhere (literally identified about 150+ species using the Seek and Picture Mushroom apps), or turn over a log to find some salamanders. I recommend watching “Fantastic Fungi” prior to your trip to awaken your inner mycologist. Tree frogs and toads may even pass by to check out your camp. Red squirrels and chipmunks will chat your ear off during the day and torture any canines who think themselves skilled hunters. At night, the owls may sing you the tragedy of Loki, the Australian Shepherd, who ran into a porcupine on a small gravel road a few miles from the property and then had to deal with the laughing squirrels while groggy on pain medication from the vet. Warning: be careful with your pets, I learned the hard way.
If fungi and critters aren’t your thing, start a fire and relax while listening to the cold, crystal water of the stream right next to the campsite, or enjoy the numerous ponds and lakes you can find within a short distance. Whatever you are looking for, Kimba, I’m sure, will help you find your way. Happy camping!
Quiet and quaint, along with service for t mobile! A beautiful forest filled area along with that. Kimba was very welcoming and was quick to give me recommendations for things to do both around the sight and in Maine. Along with leaving scones and a very nice outhouse to use. I would gladly stay again. Thanks Kimba!
Great spot in the woods
We spent 2 nights at Stoner Hill. Kimba and Jordan were helpful and accommodating canvas site was nice, in the Woods by a stream. We had some difficulty finding Stoner Hill - Google Maps tried to take us to the upper and Stone Hill Road lights turned out to be a hay field. Make sure you drive around to the are there end of Stone Hill road.
Such loving and welcoming folks! ❤️
The campsite is on a beautiful secluded piece of land. Lots of hiking on the property. Very welcoming and loving people. Felt safe around them and the space. Had lots of fun! Would definitely recommend!
Didn't end up staying here due to some car trouble on my end but host was quick and kind with responses making sure I was okay. Would have loved to been able to make the trip. Perhaps next time.
We moved from Utah and needed a place to stay because my fiancé started work before we could move into an apartment. Stoner Hill was definitely an upgrade from our primitive campground (fire ring + place to park) in the White Mountains and Kimba was super helpful and friendly.
