Intro: My wife Penny and I are full time travelers, living and working in a 21 foot RV with our Siberian Husky named Kaylee and our adventure kitten Rue. We love photography, foraging, cooking, and meeting new people and hearing awesome campfire stories
We had an amazing time staying out at Nezinscot farm! The campsite overlooks the stunning Androscoggin river, and there is a hiking path leading right down to it. We loved being right next to the adorable goats and sheep, and they were friendly and loved getting some attention. The camper community space was an awesome area to have access to. It had a nice size table for meals and a fridge available for rental. It also holds some Nezinscot farm products available for purchase too! The land is currently working on rejuvenating the Maine Outdoor Wellness Center in honor of Roy Frances Varney, and will host a multitude of different sports. The farm has incredible history that goes back quite a ways and is interesting to learn about. We absolutely loved the farm fresh goat cheese and homemade bread, it made for a fantastic breakfast. If you're looking for a peaceful getaway with plenty of animals to love and hikes to go on, this is definitely a perfect destination!
Our stay at Three Ravens' Farm was fantastic! We were greeted by Jon, one of the farms employees, and he was so awesome, taking the time to make sure we found the campsite and were well oriented around. The farm blew us away, and we loved getting to use the large communal fire pit and spend more time talking to Jon. We sadly didn't get to meet Alden and Aurora, but we luckily caught them at their shop that they own the following day. The woods were quiet and we loved the direct lake access right across the road from the campsite at the public boat launch. Right next to the property, Parker Pond Headland Preserve, a giant 142 acres to hike with scenic views, which was incredible and totally worth exploring. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay out on this rustic farm.
Mike's place was a wonderful camping experience! During our stay there, all the woods were full of ripe berries and we loved getting to pick and enjoy some raspberries and blackberries. Mike knows so much about the land, and was happy to show us some of the hiking paths and views on this property, which has been passed down from multiple generations. The field that we chose to put our tent in had a ton of wild mint growing, surrounding our campsite and providing amazing smell from the fragrant flowers growing. Just five minutes away is Pine Island, part of the Androscoggin River Trail, and it was fun stopping there and checking out the island, which is perfect for fishermen, hikers, canoes, and rafters! In the morning we utilized the shared raised fire pit for our coffee, with some more of the awesome wild berries in the campsite. We loved our stay here!
The campsite at Williamsville Hillside Camp was a great place to be secluded in nature. There are 25 acres on the property that are available for exploring and hiking. There is a level wooden platform perfect for tent setups that sits up high on some very unique rocks. Across the path and over a bit there is a large fire pit available for use. We were happy we brought a hammock with us, there were many trees available to hang it on that provided great shade during the noontime sun. We were also provided with a five gallon jug of water and some leftover wooden cube blocks from the wood shop to use in place of firewood. This campsite is very bare bones, but would be great for an avid nature lover looking for some peace and quiet.
We had such a relaxing peaceful stay at EarthSong. Jo greated us and gave us a thorough tour of her land, showing us all the awesome hiking trails through the area. The campsite was wonderfully maintained and had plenty of level spots for tents, a well built fire ring, and a platform with firewood and a composting toilet available. Jo even provided a pamphlet with a map of the property and good-to-know information to make sure we had a good camping stay. We lucked out and visited in time for blueberries to just start ripening, and it was great getting to enjoy a few handfuls of them. Jo was also kind enough to give us some eggs from her chickens, which were perfect for camp breakfast. We enjoyed the solitude and the nature that surrounded us out on this beautiful land.
Mary has such an amazing campground set up on her beautiful ranch! We were blown away by how much work she has put into creating this amazing area. The yurts are sturdy and great quality, and they have amazingly comfortable beds! Mary has decorated them to feel so cozy. Each site has a well built fire pit with chairs for enjoying an evening bonfire. There are private outdoor showers available at each site with a privacy curtain around them, perfect for rinsing off after a fun day petting the horses and goats. The woods are beautiful, and each campsite is far away from each other, providing a wonderful solitary camping experience. As you walk out of the woods, it opens up into a beautiful prairie filled with wildflowers, and if you're lucky you'll see the herd of rescue horses peacefully grazing. Mary takes incredible care of her animals and it was wonderful seeing them cage free and happily roaming the ranch, free to safely enjoy all the land they want! We were so obsessed with the sweet goats, they were all so friendly and we couldn't get enough loving in with them. If you're an animal lover, we can't recommend this camping experience enough!
We had such a spectacular time staying out at Tim's amazing campsite! Tim has worked hard to provide one of the most incredible camping retreats we've ever been to. The pond on the property was crystal clean and so wonderful for swimming, boating, and relaxing in all day long. The property is so vast and absolutely perfect for any size group, from just two people to a giant family reunion. There are endless things to do here, from exploring the many acres of beautiful woods, full of well-groomed hiking paths, to enjoying the spectacular mountain view from the hilltop. If you're lucky enough, you might get to see some planes drop in on one of the property's two runways. Tim was such a friendly host, he went out of his way to make sure we had anything we could need for a perfect camping stay. His land is well mowed and our animals loved being able to explore off leash, and we loved not having to worry about them getting into trouble thanks to how humongous the property is. There is a beautiful gazebo at the pond providing noonday sun at the pond, and a dock perfect for relaxing in the sun. We had the most relaxing stay at Hogan's Landing and we can't recommend it enough!
Camping at Indian Hills was amazing! Joe was an incredible host and went out of his way to make sure we were set up and comfortable at the campsite. The land was stunning, and there was so much to enjoy during our stay. The ponds were spring fed and we loved getting to cool off in them during the sunny hot days. There are a multitude of cool places to set up camp, from right by the water to the nice tucked back campsite in the trees. There are forest paths that lead through seas of ferns and towering pines, and wild raspberries that we loved picking. We can't recommend this campsite enough!
We had a short and easy stay at Wager Rd Retreat. It was a no frills camping area, simply a path in to the woods and then a fire ring from past fires there. We were able to drive in and camp with our 21 foot camper, and there was flat ground available for tent camping as well. During the day we enjoyed hanging our hammock and enjoying the shade of the tall trees. Since it is completely untouched nature, the bugs can be pretty abundant and we made good use of bug spray! We loved how easy it was to pull in and set up camp, just right off the road.
We had such a wonderful stay at Dwyer Family Farm!The campsite was tucked along the woods on the back part of the farm, giving us peace and quiet and letting us appreciate the beauty of the woods. The site was well maintained and in great shape; there was a table, a fire ring, and benches available for camper use. We were easily able to park our 21 foot camper at the site, and there were plenty of level spots perfect for tents. We got a great tour of the farm and the animals from Moira, the hosts daughter. We also enjoyed exploring the woods and snacking on the wild black raspberries that were ripe.
