Read our story about the beautiful camp sites and the gorgeous scenery, then choose from 7, highly scenic private sites in 3 connected sections. Please scroll thru the pictures above to get a visual of the actual tent sites. ***SPECIFIC DESCRIPTIONS FOR EACH ARE AT THE END OF THIS WRITE UP.***
At WILDWALKWAYS, you are welcomed to a pristine, coastal forest in scenic, unspoiled Georgetown, Maine on the ocean. This quaint town is a gem of the Maine coast, near historic Bath, the enticing "mid coast" area. You won't find a more rewarding and affordable camping journey with so many natural "Maine" features.
Your campsites are surrounded by a scenic lake, meandering rocky stream, active beaver pond, giant moss covered cliffs, majestic forest and more! All of this in a natural, untouched setting with pine needled trails ...the real Maine! Georgetown is the best of both worlds, as it has a northern, wilderness feel, yet is only 12 minutes to "civilization" in historic Bath, Maine.
Even though 2019 was our first full year operating, we ranked a very high "7th BEST IN MAINE!" Campers were 100% enthusiastic and ALL sites were filled up often. Thanks to all who stayed, making the year a booming success! Plus, we've added two, spacious, exciting sites for 2020 and made many enhancements for an even better experience.
Our spacious tent sites open late April, though it may still be cool. Take advantage of our 30% DISCOUNT on bookings thru May 15. (Discount off price shown) We might allow camping as early as April 15, weather permitting. Inquire first if booking prior to May 1.
WildWalkWays is a unique and really cool small campground with seven tent sites total, in 3 sections with different price points. Our sites are PRIVATE & SPACIOUS WITH GREAT VALUE. Unlike many campgrounds, with sites jammed together without privacy, ours are spaced well apart for MAXIMUM PRIVACY. It doesn't feel like a typical campground ...it feels like a park. Even when every site is booked, campers tell us you genuinely get a sense of "owning the Maine forest."
***READ OUR 100% POSITIVE REVIEWS*** HAPPY CAMPERS RULE. HERE IS ONE REVIEW RANDOMLY PULLED BELOW
"I had the best camping experience I’ve ever had at the Cedar Meadows campsite, it was completely pushed into the woods and it was the biggest campsite too, we hung our hammock up and listened to birds chirping, you can’t hear anything but wildlife. Having a toilet a short walk away was a huge plus. Mark was the best host we could ask for. He was extremely polite and helpful, he brought us an axe upon asking for one and even left out some wood for us and helped us to the site. The beautiful untouched land is amazing and the site is big enough for a nice walk by the small waterfall and big cliff, well worth a visit here. Already planning on coming back for the fall foliage because of how great our experience was. If you want an extremely quiet and secluded campground away from big crowds and small sites, come here."
AT YOUR CAMPSITE A lot of thought went into designing the sites for solitude, fun and privacy. Every camper has told us they loved the genuine camping experience. The 7 tent sites are spread over many acres, in our beautiful coastal forest, only three miles to the ocean. You can hear the surf many nights. Each tent site is unique, with views, stream, fire pits, peacefulness, cliffs, mossy boulders, wildlife and more. For your comfort, we have spread a thick layer of soft pine needles over each tent area, which makes for an incredibly relaxing, comfortable sleep. All sites have marked trees to hang hammocks from for added enjoyment. At WildWalkWays, you are in the real Maine woods with trees, deer and nature all around you but you are not isolated. Rest assured, there are no poisonous snakes or crocodiles! You will wake to the fresh scents of the pine forest and aromatic bayberry in the air. I know that might sound corny but it's true.
CREATURE COMFORTS There are quality, enclosed portable toilets a short walk from every site, with soft lighting near each one so you can find your way. They are cleaned and supplied daily. Each serves only 2 or 3 sites! Pine needled trails lead to these rest stations. They have lighting and a fan inside. Kinda cool and everyone loves them. EACH CAMPSITE has its own cold WATER faucet, right at the the tent site! A unique touch special to our sites.
SAFETY Every occupied site has a few motion or solar lights to softly illuminate the area. In addition, the logging road used to access the sites has occasional solar or motion lights so you aren't totally in the dark, it is a very subtle effect. NOTE: We always have a few LED flashlights on hand if you forgot yours.
BOOKING You can now check in as EARLY as 10 am for a small fee. (Inquire when booking). Regular book in time is 2 to 7 PM.
COMMUNICATIONS We communicate with campers after you book, thanking you and giving directions or answering any questions you might have. When you get here, we provide FREE USE use of a four wheeled gorilla cart to get belongings to your site. Campers love it. You will get a handout on each site, basic information, local attractions and things to do. Please let us know of any requests before you get here and we will do our best to help you out. Feel free to ask anything or how we can help.

DESCRIBED HERE ARE THE SEVEN PRIVATE TENT SITES
Book Site 1, The RED DOOR and Site 2-FROG HOLLOW HERE, the booking area WildWalkWaysONE, you are reading NOW.
Site 1--The Red Door site is the shortest walk from parking and overlooks a large 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 with room for an average tent and a small one. The sounds and sights of frogs, birds and deer are all around you. Bird life is amazing, with scenes of herons, bald eagles, hawks, egrets and others over the pond. You are almost guaranteed to see a deer across the pond. It's only a minute or two walk to the larger lake. Red Door has a stone fire pit for cooking or ambiance and has its own water spigot. The site itself is a nice size with room to spread out.
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. Its tucked in a neat alcove with giant ostrich ferns adding a Jurassic Park feel. A short pine needled trail from the logging road leads to the site. A fire pit has been added ...yay! Frog Hollow is a short distance from the Red Door site but private 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. It is ideal for one or two people.
The sites below are booked thru sections WildWalkWaysTWO and THREE

If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
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
Quiet site to explore island from
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.
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.
Great host, great site
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.
