    Our campground has  kayaks, SUP, motorboats, and sailboats for rent, lessons, and guided trips. We have certified kayak guides and sailing instructors on staff if needed. We also have charter boat trips out to see wildlife: seals, porpoises, eagles, osprey, and puffins. During this eco tour we also haul lobster traps and stop at an island to hike and swim in the quarry.  If you are up for an adventure, Old Quarry is the place to be.

Beautiful, quiet camp site. I was in site 10, a good walk from the car to the site and to the restrooms. I enjoyed the stay. I have to give a 2 out of 10 for customer service. When we arrived, we weren't really welcome to the place or introduce to what was available and maybe just a smile. I felt I had to pull out information to have an idea of the place.

There is no excuse for this poor customer service. I apologize for this behavior. Thank you for letting me know about this. Capt. Bill

I had no idea what to expect coming here, there was a lot more to offer than just camping. There's a camp store with all of the necessities and more. There's also a "take out" window where you can order a few different food items...like a lobster dinner! Yum.

There's also quite a few excursions available..guided kayak tours, PUFFIN tours (um how cool!), kayak and boat rentals. So many options! I originally had other plans but abandoned them to stay longer and took a guided trip to one of Maine's many islands & had a BLAST!

What a great little spot on the coast of Maine! I'm already planning my trip back. Loved my little campsite next to the ocean...I have never slept so well!

My little site was in between 12 & 13 which are both ocean front sites.forest pingpongKayak guide, Norris.camp office / store

Stayed for one night in late April. Great place!! We stayed at site 9. When we checked in, our lovely host made sure we were prepared for the weather and the tent platforms helped immensely to keep us dry despite a night full of rain. It wasn't quite the weather/season for it yet, but the campgrounds also had kayak/boat rentals (plus more). Side note: very clean bathrooms, plus sites had electric and water, also dog friendly!
Highlights included
- drive-up sites with all the amenities, plus a secluded tent platform
- friendly host and host dog
- well kept land with plenty of room to explore

We had a great stay at Old Quarry campground! The campground was pretty empty when we were there, so we had a lot of privacy. The spaces are well equipped with fire pits, tent stages, chairs and picnic tables. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The quarry also does kayak rentals, so we were able to rent kayaks and explore the islands on deer isle. Great experience!

An overall of our siteCampwood, yay! You can find this for sale all over the island if you don't want to hunt some down yourself.starting a fire with flint and steelcooking food campfire

We camped in 4 places on our trip up the East Coast and into Canada. The Old Quarry Campground was the most magical and picturesque. We camped in an overflow spot on the pond. There was a little noise from the frogs but we really enjoyed everything about our stay here.

Many of the campsites are beautifully secluded in Captain Bill's woods, but the grounds have more of a sporty base camp vibe- almost everyone comes here to kayak out to the many lil islands closeby.

You can rent kayaks. paddleboards or even a sailboat! The family business feel and small scale keeps it pretty medium-key though, and the staff is friendly and helpful. And they catch their own lobster!

Old Quarry Campground is a beautifully kept campground with private campsites, clean bathrooms, a store in case you forget anything and a good spot to rent kayaks, sailboats etc. We camped but a lot of people were coming in for tours etc. The campsites had everything we needed. Wish we could have stayed longer, would definitely go back!
