Stayed for three nights with three children in the third week of August. Used to visit Hermit Island Campground when I was a kid and have fond memories. My recent stay was not a disappointment. The campground does not allow hard top campers so we stayed in a tent. We had trouble with our air mattress and employees were very... More

Wecame here to go swimming. Nice beach and only $8 for a vehicle. Fair price for a family to swim. They could however comb their beach for seaweed. Though it was still a nice place to swim.

I loved it. It was my first time camping and it went great - that is up until the small microburst hit and knocked out the power. I was heading out anyway. The sites are clean, the bathrooms and showers are clean, the campers are respectful and it's quite quiet. The beaches are phenomenal and I like the rules- it... More

If you can reserve an oceanfront site this campground cannot be matched. But there are only a dozen or so - and you reserve about 6 months in advance...so not likely. We'll likely return in the off season but don't think we'd go in July - August again unless we try for one of the oceanfront sites. Pros: nice sandy... More

Hermit Island has some nice campsites. My wife and I have camped their many times over the years. I couldn't give a good review because of the shower conditions and the overall upkeep is very minimal.

The sites are nice. Not all have ocean views but never the less it is truly a beautiful place. The kelp shed can be a welcome respite if it rains.

Cant use credit/debit cards. Website is useless for making reservations. So you try to call and all you get is the busy signal for 2 hours!! Either get more phone lines or catch up with the times so people can make reservations on your website.

My husband and I take a birthday weekend trip every year. We wanted something nearby & we enjoy camping so we looked online at the best Maine camping locations and found this @ the top of the list, it was about 2.5 hours away. When I called to get a camp site they were all booked, so I had to... More

We have camped here every year. We have my mom, sister, niece, my two children and this year my three step sons joined us. It is our favorite place, we look forward to our trip all year. Yes there are misquitos and skunks but you're camping in Maine! The ocean, beaches and views are well worth it. My daughter and... More
