About Old Quarry Ocean Adventures
Old Quarry Campground is on the site of an old granite quarry. We have 13 tent sites, each outfitted with a 12x12 tent platform, fire ring, and picnic table. Two of the 13 sites are ocean front, and 3 of them are RV accessible. Our campground is partnered with a kayak, SUP, motorboat, and sailboat outfitter. We have certifed kayak guides and sailing instructors on staff who can take inexperienced boaters out on guided trips. We also have charter boat trips out to see wildlife: seals, porpoises, eagles, osprey, and puffins, to swim in a fresh water swim quarry, and to haul lobster traps. If you are up for an adventure, Old Quarry is the place to be.

The vibe at Old Quarry Ocean Adventures

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!
- 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
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.
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.
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!
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!
