This old Maine boys camp is the perfect location for friend and family get-togethers, small weddings, or conferences. Camp Otyokwa was a thriving boys camp from the 1930s, closed at the onset of World War II, and run as a private family camp since. Located in the mid-coast Maine town of Bremen, it sits on 40 acres of private land on Lake Pemaquid, with 2100 feet of westward-facing, pristine freshwater shoreline. Arriving at Otyokwa, you find a quaint, 4 bedroom, 2 bath Farmhouse sitting at the top of the hill, and a picturesque meadow behind the house stretching down toward the water. Get refreshments and local information from our welcome center. As you descend down the meadow towards the lake, all sounds from the road disappear, and you’ll find the camp; five cabins, a kitchen cabin, bathhouse, and Mess Hall 60 feet back from the shoreline, but elevated a bit with spectacular views of the water. The cabins are lightly and thoughtfully updated, with lighting, comfortable mattresses and linen, water dispensers, and fans. The kitchen cabin has a refrigerator, stove and sink and is perfect for convening for breakfast and all meals. The bathhouse has 2 en-suite toilet, sink and shower rooms, as well as two outdoor showers, and towels. The outdoor possibilities are endless. You can enjoy kayaking, paddle boarding and fishing, or discovering nearby islands, and adjoining lakes on this large, 9-mile body of water. Walk the lakeside trails of Otyokwa and picnic at the Point, a secluded beach area with 300-degree views of the water. Discover the mess hall, the old camp dining hall that is outfitted for larger meals, and relaxing with games on a rainy day. The Farmhouse is an anchor for meals and convening, as well. There's also an ample supply of sporting recreational goods, to enjoy on the adjacent meadow. Otyokwa is located 12 minutes from the town of Damariscotta, with its many restaurants, shops, and theater, making the remote experience at the site feel secluded, but is actually quite close to conveniences. As the ocean is a mere 2 miles away from the camp, you and your group can take advantage of local charters and enjoy the amazing sights of Muscongus Bay on saltwater excursions, and experience a true working waterfront in Bremen. World-class seafood and oyster farms in Damariscotta and the rest of the spectacular Pemaquid peninsula make for an incredible side trips, from a food and adventure standpoint. The multitude of trails and natural features showcase Maine’s natural glory.
