A TRUE CAMPING EXPERIENCE AWAITS YOU AND THE BEST WEATHER IS AHEAD!

AMAZING FALL COLORS ARE STARTING NOW!

At WILDWALKWAYS, you are welcomed to a pristine, coastal forest in scenic, Georgetown, Maine. We are a unique and really cool small campground with three sections, all offering PRIVATE, BIG SITES WITH GREAT VALUE. Unlike many campgrounds, with sites jammed together, ours are spaced apart for privacy and have 100% POSITIVE REVIEWS... THAT MATTERS!

We put alot of thought into designing our sites for solitude and privacy and every camper has told us they loved the experience. In our beautiful coastal forest, only three miles to the ocean... you can hear the surf many nights. PLUS, all sites have trees to hang hammocks from.

You can now check in as EARLY as ten am for a small fee. (Inquire when booking). REGULAR BOOK IN TIMER FOR FALL IS 2 TO 6 PM

We provide FREE USE use of a four wheeled gorilla cart to get your stuff to your site. Campers love it.

There is a scenic lake on the property, bring your canoe! We offer Canoeing... Hiking... Birdwatching... Photography... Biking... lake fishing and of course Camping.

Our property borders a 140 acre nature preserve you can also hike on! Dramatic rock bluffs and moss covered ledges are near the campsites. (and at WildwalkwaysThree rock bluffs are part of a campsite) Don't forget the meandering stream close to all sites.

FALL FOLIAGE IS AMAZING HERE -- PEAK COLOR IS SEP. 25 THRU OCT. 15. It's a great time to camp: pleasant temps, few bugs, great color, the crowds are gone.

There's more: Famous Reid State Park and it's huge sandy beach is nearby as is Sewell Pond for swimming. Our Property is also the home of our rare plant nursery, Eastern Plant Specialties, filled with amazing plants ...a botanical paradise if plants are your thing.

FOOD: The general store is only two miles away ...a nice walk or bike ride. Bath, Maine finally has a good pizza place, Brunos Wood Fired pizza on Front St.

HISTORY: The noted towns of Bath, Brunswick and Wiscasset are only 12 to 20 minutes away.

CENTRALLY LOCATED: We are less than a days drive to so many Maine attractions.

COME CAMP AT MAINE WILDWALKWAYS ...A GREAT BACK TO NATURE PLACE!

HIKE: All sites have direct and easy access to a logging road that borders the nature reserve and it's hiking trails.

LAKE: Rest by the lake, take in its beauty, watch the birdlife

CREATURE COMFORTS: There are quality, enclosed portable toilets a short walk from the sites with soft lighting near each one so you aren't pooping in the dark. Each has switchable lighting and a fan inside.

EACH CAMPSITE has its own cold water faucet, right next to the tent site!

DESCRIBED HERE ARE THE FIVE PRIVATE TENT SITES

Sites 1 and 2 are part of Maine WildWalkwaysOne, the booking area you are reading now.

The Sites, MORNING MIST, BABBLING BROOK AND CEDAR MEADOWS are part of Maine WildWalkwaysTwo ...see our other listing here.

MORNING MIST, BABBLING BROOK and CEDAR MEADOWS sites have really cool fire pits, with the Babbling Brook in ear shot right at your site. Go to the Maine WildWalkwaysTwo listing to book them.

Streamside Overlook is WildWalkWaysThree  NEW & bookable as of Sept 23.

BOOK SITES 1, THE RED DOOR SITE AND SITE 2, THE FROG HOLLOW SITE, HERE

Site 1--The Red Door site is the shortest walk from parking and overlooks a scenic beaver pond with water lilies and cattails. There is a wide, expansive view to the pond, drawing you in... nothing but pristine scenery...you are there. The site has a large footprint. Room for an average tent and a small one. The sounds and sights of frogs, birds and deer are all around you. Birdlife is amazing, with scenes of herons, hawks, egrets and others over the pond. It's only a minute or two walk to the larger lake. Red Door has a stone firepit for cooking or ambiance and has its own water spigot. The site itself is a nice size with room to spread out. For some reason this site does not get the number of bookings it deserves...help change that.

Site 2, Frog Hollow, is near a stream and the same scenic beaver pond with waterlilies and a has a superb view to the pond. Frogs are abundant and the sights of larger birds over the pond are frequent. It is a short distance from site 1 and has its own water spigot. For larger groups consider booking both site 1 and 2. Frog Hollow is the smallest site but still larger than sites at most campgrounds. Ideal for one or two people. And like Red Door, this site deserves more bookings.

Sites Morning Mist, Babbling Brook and Cedar Meadows described below are booked thru our OTHER listing here as they are a different price. See our other listing, titled Maine WildWalkWaysTwo to book them. Thank you.

Morning Mist site, is accessed over a small foot bridge and has a very large footprint. There is a gentle rise in back of the site. It is very near a stream, with siting so morning sun fills the area. There is a beautiiful fire pit. It has its own water spigot. See our other listing called Maine WildWalkwaysTwo to book

Babbling Brook Site, is accessed by a different footbridge over a small waterfall that leads you down a short path and is very private. It is very near a stream and has a nice firepit. The stream can be easily heard and adds a relaxing feel. There is a gentle rise in back of the site giving a sense of total privacy. It has its own water spigot. See our other listing here called Maine WildWalkwaysTwo to book

Cedar Meadows Site is the most private with dramatic view to a salt marsh and the stream emptying into it. It's the largest site. Nearby is a dramatic cliff and larger waterfall and acres of trails. Several huge cedar trees inhabit the area. It has its own water spigot. See our other listing here called Maine WildWalkwaysTwo to book.

COMING SOON: WILDWALKWAYS THREE. 2 spectacular sites that will have you drooling. One will be available by Sept 23. It will be perched ABOVE the stream with a fire-pit near the stream and supplied with chairs, fire wood, cooking utensils, condiments, paper towels, 4 gallons of water and small table. You journey onto a small, mossy island in the stream then over a stone bridge to get to it.. really cool. At your tent site you will have an overlook view of the stream, firepit and marsh. Only 2 people allowed at this site due to grade. It will be priced at $60 this fall and more come spring. The other new site will be facing the salt marsh, waterfall and huge mossy boulders. It will have a huge footprint. Rock cliffs covered in moss will be your backdrop. It will also be supplied--coming in 2020!  All of our sites are great, these will be showpieces! Inquire.

WildWalkWays is a well-maintained, well-spaced out new campground in a prime location that Mark has built on his property right near the coast. Wherever your spot is, you're camping on soft pine needles in the heart of a beautiful forest. We were the last campers of the season before the cold weather hit, and Mark was super helpful showing us around when we arrived (in the dark!) and explaining his campground project. I think the sites will be packed next summer, and beautiful when his azalea and rhododendron nursery is in full bloom.

It’s places like this that made me want to sign up for Hipcamp in the first place.
Mark was a great host and has some great locations to camp. A few notes on my stay at the RedDoor site (8/31-9/1 2018):
Site was very private and we never really heard any other campers during our stay.
Pictures had me concerned that the site was right next to the pond but it was set back enough to give us a great view without the swampiness.
Portable toilet situation was far better than I expected.
Didn’t have a fire pit but he’s working on getting one set up soon.
Site wasn’t that far from parking (~150 yards)

Mark was very courteous and accommodating during our stay. He’s definitely still working out a few kinks as he is new to this but as it stands he already has a great location. If you want to be surrounded by a crowd of people or need all the amenities of summer camp then this isn’t the place for you. The fact that we had a relaxing and quiet site during Labor Day weekend made it the perfect site for us.
Would definitely camp here again

Mark is a very caring host. We had lots of privacy. Would highly recommend the Beaver Pond site. It has a great fire pit and plenty of space. Also great location in Maine! Very close to amazing Reid State Park beach

We stayed at Site #1, the Red Door Site and it was exactly as Mark has described in his description. A more primitive, back to basics camping site with some amenities included :) Our 4th of July weekend plans were booked last minute and we were happy to get the last site available for the weekend. It was noted as being small in the description and the footprint was a little small for our tent (a 4 person or smaller would be perfect for this site). With a campfire ring that was perfect for our tripod grill and large trees to hang a hammock up for our son to hang out in it was a private, quiet site to relax at while we explored Georgetown Island and Reid State Park. The beaver pond kept our son entertained searching for frogs and he was excited to see some deer when we were near camp. Mark goes above and beyond as a host, personally greeting each guest as they come, offering a gallon of drinking water per night, laying out solar lights on the paths and having a cart to help bring stuff from your vehicle to camp. We had to cut our trip short with a thunderstorm predicted and a 5 year old who hates thunder so we weren’t able to explore more of Mark’s property but Reid State Park was an amazing beach and worth the trip! Mark gave us some great suggestions for places to visit while we were on the island and was a pleasure to chat with.

Thank you so much Amy. Sorry the forecasted storm cut your trip short. We did have one, incredibly loud and close clap of lightning ...then it just stopped. If you ever come back for a two day stay we will credit you half a day. I appreciate your thoughtful comments...we try!

I had an excellent experience camping at wild walk ways. Mark was there to meet me when I arrived and show me around the site. The campsites are really beautiful and thoughtfully set up. Fell asleep to croaking bullfrogs. Would highly recommend!

Mark has a wonderful piece of land which you will enjoy experiencing! We woke up to a little pond filled with white water lilies and bird songs. The site is quite isolated, we didn’t see other campers around. There’s a neat set up for the outhouse, in a little tent, with lanterns guiding the way. There is quite a lot of biodiversity, and some faune action during the night. Since the campsite is a little complicated to get to, make sure you coordinate in advance with the host and get there early because he goes to bed early but will need to show you how to get in and out the deer gates, and how to use the toilet. The site is a bit out into the woods so you need to carry your stuff with a little trolley. I recommend getting dressed for bugs since this year has been really bad. The campsite itself was sprayed but the rest of the property was really buggy in August. A nice place to enjoy nature. Make sure you check out Reid state park while you’re there - at the end of the half mile beach there’s an area where the water is more calm and warmer for swimming.

Response from Mark, the Host, on August 6th, 2019

We love all our campers and I enjoyed Claudia and Simon, but i have to correct some factual errors in this review. I texted and emailed the campers repeatedly asking when they would arrive. With NO response! With concern I even contacted hipcamp to ask what do I do? I communicate with each camper this way and have never had a problem, campers love the communication. Well they showed up at 9:15 pm, calling me. That is well past the stated check in of 7 pm in my texts and emails and on hipcamp. I let them in and was stern, asking what happened. They showed no remorse from being over two hours late to check in. We seemed to get along great, but this was them not reading the rules, I tried to contact them to no avail. No one has had an issue with deer gate, it takes ten seconds to take down and put up. And no one has gotten lost getting here. Its quite easy. In fact I text local directions to every camper the day before. Every other camper has liked that and been appreciative. They said they had their phone off. Wouldn't you have your phone on if going somewhere and communication was important. I do appreciate their nice review otherwise. And they told me they had a great time.

Mark was a great host! His site is beautiful and exactly as described. We stayed at the Red Door site, and even though we were the closest to the parking, we still felt secluded and unbothered by the other campers. Mark sent clear directions to get to the site and met with us when we arrived to go over all the details of the site. He even had printed information for the site and some notes about the area. It seems he has a good handle on the situation, providing a cart to move gear to the sites, hoses for washing up at each site, a gallon of drinking water, and even a little toilet tent. He was very friendly when we saw him around and he made sure everything met our expectations. The pond and forest are really amazing. Nothing beats being awoken by the sounds of pond life! The surrounding area has quite a lot to offer as well, so you’ll have plenty to fill your days. Im very happy I decided to book here and would highly recommend it.
