We usually pick a site out near the water, but this trip was a one-nighter during a very rainy spell. Thus we opted for site #4 right across from the office and main bathhouse. The site looks out over one of the fields, where you can watch the cows. This is one of just a few sites with hookups. A dump station is available.

Date of Visit: June '06

Site #160 is located in the loop called West Bay. Many sites in this area offer great views of Casco Bay. These sites can get quite soggy when it rains. The swimming beach is just below this site. These sites are a bit pricey at $40 and with no hookups. Other sites not on the waterfront are a bit less.

The main bathhouse near the office offers hot, coin-operated showers.

Verizon National Access coverage is available.

Another site, this one in the East Bay loop, also offers views of the bay.

There are over 100 sites, some wooded, some grassy, many with great views of the water.

There are also three cabins for rent.
