Great spot! We only stayed for one night as we were passing through the area, wishing we could have stayed longer and explored the farm area more. Great fire pit built area, as well as a path to a private compost toilet. There is a nice family owned seafood place down the road and the property is not too far from Bass Harbor light which we hit at sunset.

The campsite was nice, clean, and private, and had firewood already set aside for us. It's only about a half hour from the main parts of Acadia, so it had great access to all of the park and it was a quiet, secluded area. We got a little turned around with all the other sites, especially when it was dark outside, but we found the spot after a little wandering and re-reading the directions. Brendan and Candace were very responsive when we had questions, and having access to the bathhouse was welcome for a quick shower. The outhouse is an above ground structure with a half door.

The hip camp site was great. It was a 15- 30 minute drive to Acadia depending on the entrance. The site was private and spacious. There was lots of firewood on site for purchase. I would definitely recommend staying here.

We had a great time staying here! We loved using the fire pit and the spot was great for viewing the night sky with the leaves gone. There were also great trees for hanging a tarp or hammock.

The site is nice and flat with a good-sized fire pit and is located really close to the parking area for easy gear hauling from the car. The shower and outhouse are close to the site and clean. I never met Candace or Brendan over 4 days stay but they were responsive over text. Would recommend.

The spot was very private with no one else visible from the spot in the woods. Outhouse available down a path. Overall a great camping spot.

The campsite we stayed at was perfect! It was large, secluded and comfortable. Candace & Brendan had a lovely set up for the campsite with the firepit a stones throw away from the site itself. Next to the firepit was some seating they'd created which was just great. The outhouse was also a very short walk from the site.

We arrived pretty late at night and had some questions and Candace got back to be right away. The route directions as well as instructions were detailed and helped us a lot! Thank you for sharing your space! We hope to be back someday!
