Nice tent sites, and roads for van/RV use. (Level sites with fire pits, firewood and water for free.)  Sites along the water: 1 and 3, 5 and 7. (those usually are RV sites). Up the hill: 2 and 4. Dispersed, 6 and 8. Try to book a specific site, or let me know which. Privacy - no views to or from road, only the water - clothing-optional inquiries welcomed.  Dark nights for star gazing. 20-foot tidal range, strong currents, great kayaking and boating - but be careful. Mid-tide and higher it's good swimming here, also a small spring fed pond to cool off in. Carry in here, or launch for free next door to Cobscook Bay State Park. Cell communication is good, tower 1.2 miles away. Smart phone hot-spot work for me. To get here: GPS: 285 South Edmunds Road, Dennysville, ME.  YouTube: "Elmer's cove" - 6 videos.

Beautiful View, Nice Host, right near the public boat launch and state park, I recommend staying. Bring bug spray!

Great spot and nice host. Al was welcoming and offered tips for things to see in the area. The site was beautiful - overlooking the ocean (although not much water at low tide).

Very private and wild, bring plenty of bug spray for the mosquitos. Heard deer all night.

Al's place was quiet and peaceful and Al is a wonderful host. The location is great and central to a lot of good hiking and low key sight seeing. The privy is rustic which was ok for us but maybe not for everyone. We were thankful for a good first hip camp experience and a good social distancing Memorial day.

Al was super accommodating. Multiple sites available and the water views are great. Good location for a lot of area hiking. Outhouse and outdoor showering options. We appreciated the screened in shelter to get away from the black flies. Firewood and potable water were also provided.
We came early in the season and I think there are a few maintenance items that could be done but it sounds like the owner had plans for a lot of them. Outhouse was up the hill which not ideal in the middle of the night but it is camping.
Overall, it was a good experience. I would like to come back a little later in the season when black flies aren’t so prevalent. Like I said, Al was very accommodating and wanted to make sure we had a good experience. Price was cheaper than a lot of other area camp sites and he had more amenities.

Al’s Spot (Elmers Cove) has all the magic you could possibly want from a camp spot. The views are incredible! Each campsite is unique, it was hard to choose which one. It is remote but still close to so many natural wonders. You honestly don’t even need to leave the cove to have a wonderful time. Al is a great host and was willing to help with anything we needed. You will leave the Cove feeling so rested and relaxed!

Al was a lovely host. Very sweet guy. Dug up clams for us to eat and also helped us out with a lobster pot so we can steam those beautiful Maine monsters!! Gave us recommendations on where to hike, beautiful piece of property he lives on. Right next to cobscook state park which is also a beautiful park.

Al was a very gracious host. His site space is very unique. The view is spectacular and the wildflowers growing everywhere are homes to bumble bees and pretty visuals. There is absolutely no service or WiFi, so just be prepared to be offline for awhile and reconnect with earth.
