Push off of the public boat launch in Brunswick Maine and canoe (which can be provided) a short 3/4 of a mile to an island retreat. A primitive site having your basics needs met. On your trip out, see bald eagles and osprey diving for fish, hear the slap of a beaver tail and the chuckling of the squirrels as you set foot on your island. You'll feel like you're miles away from everything but you're still in the middle of Maines beautiful Midcoast region. Kayak or canoe Merrymeeting Bay - the largest Estuary on the east coast. If you have a water dog, bring the buoy, a tired dog is a happy dog. At the end of a day paddling, relax by the fire and hear the rustling of the leaves overhead. You might even see deer on occasion. If you want to day trip or lunch out, Brunswick features dozens of great restaurants and shops. Museums at Bowdoin College and a farmers market on Fridays and you can't leave without checking out Frosty's Donuts - 55 years of donut goodness. 20 minutes to Freeport LLBean area, 15 minutes to Bath, 40 minutes to Boothbay Harbor and 35 minutes back to Portland.

There are few places quite as incredible as this! Staying on a private island was a real treat, and with the many accommodations provided by our host, we did so in complete comfort! Ask Jim, the host, to add an hour of outdoor skill training to your weekend visit, as he's a registered maine guide! There are numerous places to set up a tent, and you have the option of canoeing, bringing your own kayaks or small skiff, or talking with Jim about options for his assistance getting out to the island! Even opt to take the train up the coast, where he will pick you up! There's tons of paddling options, and we listened to multiple critters as we fell asleep. The comfort of having a host with such experience allowed us to feel as though we were having a private retreat, and it was amazing!

Hosts were absolutely wonderful! Very accommodating and very friendly. We had some trouble both with traffic (we were late) and weather during our trip, but Jim was very flexible and helpful. Our dog loved having the ability to run free on the island, and we had a really lovely time taking the canoe out on the river. Thank you!

The only word to describe the camping experience is phenomenal. From the large island filled with fun stuff to explore to the eerie yet memorizing fog that sets in during a storm, the trip was amazing. The sunsets were beautiful and the river was warm/enjoyable to swim in and was filled with fish of all sizes. The host was kind and helpful and gave us great tips on fishing, swimming, and other interesting stuff. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants an enjoyable camping trip filled with fishing, swimming, exploring, etc.
