If you and your fellow campers are looking for a premier camping spot on the ocean, head to Maine next summer.
There is a little known gem of a camping spot called Hermit Island Campground.
No big rigs, only small pop-ups, trucks with slide on campers, vans and tents are allowed.
The scenery, the area, they are more than any camper could hope for when it comes to premier outdoor living.
There are 275 sites that dot the sandy beach, the tidal harbour, perched upon rocky cliffs and inside the forestland.
Each of the sites allows for 1 car to be parked, a rock fire ring for campfires and a picnic table.
There are 4 types of campsites such as direct access to the beach, a view of the water and the proximity to the ocean.
For those that leave their tent or camping van/truck at home, there are three cabins of modest size called the Sou’wester, Log Cabin and the Hermit Island Cottage available for rent.
The Store is on site and sells sundries such as bait, grocery items, wine, beer, fresh caught lobster and other camping necessities. The Kelp Shed is open daily from 9AM until 10PM.
This is the reception area which houses picnic tables, video games, a pool table and for the cooler months, a cozy fireplace. There is also a gift shop where campers can buy souvenirs such as t-shirts and postcards to remind them of their time in Maine.
Hermit Island Campground is located between Brunswick and Boothbay Harbor away from the hustle and bustle of tourism. There is a variety of activities in which you can engage.
