Winter Camping at its finest! Take advantage of the large tent campsite at Phoenix Landing nestled up in the forest with distant water views on a majestic 5 acres with 250ft of private waterfront on Toddy Pond in mid-coast Maine.

The campsite and general is well maintained and the hosts have put thoughtful touches throughout. A beautiful area. Just did not realize how close it would be to campers staying in a nearby teepee. Almost felt like I was intruding on their stay and area but it could've been just me. Had the weather been better and we were able to take advantage of some of the resources (e.g., boating and campfire), it would have been amazing. Would try again
Lovely pond, not super private
Pros/Cons/Things to note... We were told AFTER booking that Wed nights is guys night across the pond at another camp and that they sometimes get noisy - they certainly were, late into the night! Sometimes our tipi neighbors were loud as well (there's a record player in there). When neighbors are finally quiet, however, it certainly is wonderfully peaceful. Just disappointing since in the listing it seems to emphasize quiet time; no real way to enforce it though, I guess. Reception is spotty in the area. The waterfront area is mostly taken up by the tipi site, cabin, and dock. The tent site is across the road up the hill, and so water views are largely obstructed. You do not park directly at the site, but along the road. The hill up to the tent site is very bumpy, but we managed to get our cooler up there ok. The tipi and cabin do feel quite close compared to what you see in the pictures, and the firewood, handwashing station, shower, and hammocks are all in the shared areas in between, but are certainly very close to the tipi. I felt like I was intruding when entering. You do get your own outhouse, which is simply a bucket with a bag in it and toilet seat + lid. You are expected to carry out your "loo bag" and replace at the end of your stay. We felt like the price was a little steep for a primitive site like this, even with the shower, for the reasons stated above, and the fact that there was trash left strewn about our site when we arrived. It confused us a bit when mostly everything else appeared to have been well groomed and taken care of. We prepaid for one firewood bundle, but found upon arrival that there was free firewood available as long as you were willing to split it yourself, so we had fun taking advantage of that (ax was available!). Had we known we would have just done that and saved 10 bucks. Perhaps it's not always available, but would have liked to know. Having the canoe was the best part and ultimately made it feel more worth it. As long as you are able to get time for use since you're sharing with neighbors, it is a MUST! Exploring the pond and its islands was so fun and memorable.
Great campsite, use the kayaks!!
The campsite was beautiful and as shown. Clean bathrooms and sink were very appreciated, and the tree stumps and picnic table made for easy cooking. I’d highly recommend getting in an early morning kayak trip (kayaks provided) while the dew is still rising from the water. It was great!
