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.

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.

LAKE   There is a scenic lake on the property, bring your canoe! We offer Canoeing... Hiking... Birdwatching... Biking... Lake fishing and of course Camping. Rest by the lake, take in its beauty. Our area is known for truly amazing bird life, bald eagles soaring are a daily sight at the camp sites. 

PHOTOGRAPHY   This is a photographers paradise! It's as simple as that!

HIKE   All sites have direct, easy access to our scenic logging road that borders a 150 acre nature reserve and its hiking trails. Dramatic rock bluffs and moss covered ledges are near the campsites.  At WildwalkwaysTHREE, rock bluffs are part of both campsites! ( see that section ) 

MEANDERING STREAM  There is a meandering stream close to all sites, with several small waterfalls. Sites Morning Mist, Babbling Brook and Streamside Overlook are "on" the stream. ( it never floods )

MAINES BEST OCEAN SWIMMING NEARBY!  Famous REID STATE PARK and it's huge sandy beach is in this town, just 10 minutes away. At Reid, there is also the famous shallow "lagoon", where water temps are higher,  for a more comfortable swim. Small barbeque grills are there for free. (left side of Reid parking lot toward water) Reid is a jewel of the Maine parks and also a great hiking spot: check out the rock bluffs! Up the road a bit, is famous SEWELL POND for lake swimming and kayaking. It's a very scenic area. There is also a public boat launch nearby, where you can launch your kayak into a protected ocean inlet with amazing views.

PLANT LOVERS  Our property is also the home of our famous rare plant nursery, Eastern Plant Specialties, filled with amazing wildflowers, giant rhododendrons and native plants ...a botanical paradise if plants are your thing! The largest collection of gorgeous rhododendrons anywhere in Maine lives here. Trails thru the gardens abound. We offer a guided tour during rhodo bloom season, May thru July, which can be reserved when you book. Yes, you can buy plants.

FOOD  The Georgetown general store is only two miles away on route 127 ...a nice walk or bike ride and it has a good wine selection. Bath, Maine finally has a good pizza place: Brunos Wood Fired Pizza on Front St. (ask for well done, they don't cook it enough) Here in town, there is a seasonal farm stand, farther down 127 south, offering local foods, wines etc. Also in Georgetown, don't miss Five Islands Seafood: This is a famous place, rated as one of the finest for lobster, with great take out food on the wharf. It is at the very end of 127 south. Feast on the best lobsters, burgers, chowders, etc. with picnic tables to enjoy your meal and one of the most amazing views in Maine! Don't forget, here at WildWalkWays, each campsite has a fire pit, with grates available for your own barbeque.

Also, we will have camping basics available, in case you forget: condiments, extra water, firewood, charcoal, paper towels, soap, etc.

HISTORY  The noted towns of Bath, Brunswick, Freeport and Wiscasset are only 12 to 25 minutes away.  Bath is a scenic and easy town to stroll around in with shops, cafes and history. The Bath Maritime Museum is a cool place, fun for kids and adults. Next town over is Brunswick, a bit bigger, home to Bowdoin College and also a great walking town. Freeport is well known for shopping, home of L.L. Bean. Heading up the coast is Wiscasset, highly scenic, famous for Reds Eats, shopping and scenery. 

CENTRALLY LOCATED  We are less than a days drive to so many Maine attractions. Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park are less than 3 hours away. The take off spots for wonderful Monhegan Island are just an hour away. Popham Fortess is a fascinating old stone fort, a half hour away. There's much more.

AUTUMN COLOR  Don't forget the famous Maine FALL FOLIAGE, this is a great place to see it -- peak fall foliage is Sept 20 thru Oct 15. Our campsites are usually booked well before fall season, take note.

Best camping experience ever! Mark is a great host and you can tell he put his heart into these sites to keep them natural. The description is true: I heard and saw wildlife of all types: herons and eagles on the lake, plus beavers and deer. The campsites are private, you don't feel cramped and there are soft pine needles under your tent site, how neat. A short walk to the sites adds to the experience, no ugly cars in view. There's a feeling of wilderness but with creature comforts of running water at your site and cool, portable flushing toilets, in tent like structures. Motion and solar lights on the trails keep you from getting lost. We came at peak bloom season, the sites are adjacent to Mark's nursery with thousands of spectacular rhododendrons. There are also plenty of things to do and see in the area. You get alot for your money here. All in all, a great place for those wanting a real camping experience, we certainly will come back.

I was looking for a place to camp that wasn’t the typical campground set up, and this was it! The site was an easy walk from the car into a quiet secluded spot in the woods with a beautiful setting. I stayed at the Frog Hollow site (yes there was frogs spotted) over Labor day weekend. Even though the site sits between two others, we didn’t hear or see the other campers during our stay.
Our host Mark was very accommodating. We were the first guest to stay at the site and he was interested in getting feedback and in making our stay a comfortable one. The only thing missing was a firepit, but we didn’t need it for the time we were there. The descriptions and pictures of the site were accurate and the fact that the site was so close to Reid State Park made it perfect. Just down the road we found the General Store. The place is rustic, but it had a great inexpensive breakfast – they make the biggest blueberry pancake I’ve ever had. While we were there we ran into some fellow campers who were a great and gave us some great recommendations of places to try.
So if your looking for your typical campground experience… look elsewhere. If you want to feel like you are really camping (albeit with access to drinkable water and a soft cleared spot) I would recommend checking out Wild Walk Ways.

It's clear that Mark put a lot of thought in designing the campsites. If you're looking for a quiet, woodsy site that is still near civilization, this would be a good fit. The island, which was still very quiet mid-June, has a lot to offer outdoorsy-minded folks and is quintessential coastal Maine as well. Reid State Park is gorgeous, with the pines rising tall against the rocky coast. I couldn't have scheduled worse weather (fog and torrential downpour) but I still had a wonderful time just hanging out at the site, biking, walking the beach, and scrambling on the rocks at the state park. Some notes: The Gorilla cart provided was extremely helpful in carting my stuff to the site. The Babbling Brook site fit my 10 by 10 tent. Very spotty cell reception (Verizon) on the property. Lots of mosquitoes this time of year (and this year has been one of the worst), so long sleeves and pants were essential (Mark had sprayed the site, which helped a lot). Five Islands Farm Store sells a small selection of meat and produce. Reid State Park's facilities are useful for freshening up.

Thank you for your generous comments. I'm so glad you made the best of the bad weather. It's been a rainy spring and summer so far. The skeeters are starting to die down thankfully. Yes, we did put alot of thought into the campsites and are continually making them even better.

What a great spot! These were beautiful, magical, green woods with a sweet brook and lily covered ponds. Mark was so helpful, and everything wonderfully maintained. We were there for 3 days and rarely saw anyone else at camp / really private and quiet.

Response from Mark, the Host, on August 7th, 2019

Thanks Rebecca. We have tried hard to make the sites private and peaceful. The beautiful scenery certainly helps. I'm glad you sensed that. We continue to make improvements all the time. Glad you came.

Mark is a wonderful host and delivers a unique camping experience tucked away in his secluded property and vast nursery. The Babbling Brook site is very private and fit two tents along with a very well-built fire pit. Easy access to an outdoor toilet and water provided. Very near Reid State Park.

We had a really nice stay at WildWalkWays. We stayed on site #3 and it was just what we were looking for. To get away and into the woods for a weekend. The space was well designed and set far enough away from the other sites to feel private. The fire pit was a nice design with wood provided. The surrounding area is cute with Reid State Park down the road and a convenient country store a couple minutes down the road for what you may have forgotten. The host was helpful with suggestions of local attractions and food. Upside is that it’s really close to Portland/Freeport/Brunswick.

I stayed 1 night here. Mark was very attentive. Beautiful forested area.
Mark sprayed for bugs and they truly were not as bad as I expected. The bathroom set up was great! The campsites were near one another, but I felt like we had complete privacy.
The swimming lake is a drive away, not on the campground.

There was a glitch through hipcamp that allowed us to book a site that was already taken. Luckily Mark could accommodate us, but there was no firepit at our site. Everything was well set up and he provided drinking water, solar lights to help us find our site in the dark, and a pretty cool, private portable toilet situation. Also, there were shockingly few bugs, which Mark told us was because he had treated the area. Cool place to camp with some fun stuff to visit nearby!

Campsite was nestled in a secluded clearing between a mossy hill, stream, and peaceful pond. Built a fire in the well-constructed pit, did some stargazing, and drifted off to sleep to the sound of running water and spring peepers. Host Mark left some charming lights along the path through the woods, really set the scene. Very near to Reid State Park and some pretty piers. Would love to visit again!
