A true camping experience awaits you, in our pristine, coastal Maine forest near the ocean in scenic, Georgetown, Maine. We are a unique and really cool small campground with two sections offering a real, back to nature, camping journey with great value. We call it "rustic but with creature comforts". It's not just me saying that: See our unanimous, great reviews in BOTH sections. Unlike many campsites with sites are jammed together, ours are spaced apart for solitude and privacy. Both sections offer a great camping experience in a beautiful coastal forest, only three miles to ocean... you can hear the surf most nights. ALSO NOTE: We offer substantial DISCOUNTS MONDAY THRU THURSDAY. All sites have access to a scenic lake on the property, bring your canoe! We offer Canoeing... Hiking... Birdwatching... Photography... lake fishing and of course, A GREAT CAMPING EXPERIENCE to remember. Our beautiful property borders a 140 acre nature preserve you can also hike on!

Dramatic rock bluffs and moss covered ledges are near the campsites. Don't forget the meandering stream close to all sites. Sites are accessed by a scenic old logging road, with easy, short trails to each private site.

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 and there is a seasonal market nearby with diverse organic foods.

HISTORY: The noted towns of Bath, Brunswick and Wiscssset 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. Don't forget the fall foliage -- this a great place to see it -- peak fall foliage is Sept 20 thru Oct 15.

HIKE: All five 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 for your comfort, a short walk from the sites with soft lighting near each one so you aren't pooping in the dark. (Guests love them!) Each has switchable lighting and a fan inside.

ANOTHER UNIQUE FEATURE: EACH CAMPSITE has its own cold water faucet, right next to the tent site! NOTE: We can often accommodate earlier check in if needed inquire.

DESCRIBED HERE are the five private tenting sites. Book sites 1-Morning Mist, 2-Babbling Brook, 3-Cedar Meadows here

The Red Door and Frog Hollow sites are part of Maine WildWalkwaysOne. See that listing to book them.

The larger Sites, Morning Mist, Babbling Brook and Cedar Meadows are part of Maine WildWalkwaysTwo ...book them 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.

The Red Door site is the shortest walk from parking and overlooks a scenic beaver pond with hundreds of water lilies (PEAK BLOOM OS NOW ) and cattails. The sounds and sights of frogs, birds and deer are all around you. It's only a minute or two walk to the larger lake. See our other listing to book.

Frog Hollow, is near a stream and scenic beaver pond with waterlilies (Peak bloom is now) and a great view to the beavers home. Frogs are abundant. It is a short distance from site 1. For larger groups consider booking both site 1 and 2. See our other listing to book.

BOOK THE BELOW LISTINGS FOR 1-MORNING MIST, 2-BABBLING BROOK AND 3-CEDAR MEADOWS SITES HERE

Morning Mist site, is accessed over a small foot bridge and has a larger footprint, there is room to spread out. A gentle rise in back of the site gives privacy. This site is very near a stream, with siting so morning sun fills the area. There is a beautiiful fire pit. Large beds of ferns grace the site.

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 gorgeous stone 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. This is a very intimate site.

Cedar Meadows Site is the most private, with dramatic view to a salt marsh and the stream emptying into it. Hang your hammock! It's the largest site with plenty of room to spread out. It has a firepit everyone loves for cooking or ambiance. Nearby is a dramatic cliff and larger waterfall and acres of trails. Several huge cedar trees inhabit the area. Huge beds of ferns surround the site. You get the feel of owning the forest.

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.

Thanks so much for the kind words. The wildlife is abundant. Bullfrogs have been singing the past few days!

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.

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!

The site was awesome! Very beautiful with a brook running right along our campsite. The fire pit was great! Mark was extremely attentive as a host and very easy to communicate with. We were there only one night and he let us have a late check out so we had more time to explore the area!
