Happy New Year!   The campground is closed for the season.  If you'd like to walk at Hermit Island this  winter or spring, you are welcome.  Please park at the Kelp Shed.  Dogs are welcome too as long as they don't leave anything behind.  

Please remember to include $125 deposit when you request a site for a week or more in Jan. (mail only) or Feb. (mail or phone).  Cash or check only.

Did you know we have fewer than 30 Ocean Prime and Prime sites?  Choice and Value sites are much more likely to be available, so please include some of them in your list of site requests, and ask us to choose for you if your requested sites are already booked.

The following changes have been made:

Prime sites that are now Ocean View (formerly Ocean Prime) - 1 Lee Side Way, 59, 60, 63 and 66 Dune Way, and  24, 25, 26, 27, 28, and 29W Circle.  Ocean View sites have a view of Casco Bay and/or a private path to the beach.

Choice sites that are now Prime - 19 Bayberry, 37, 38, 39, 41, 42, 43, 44 Dune Way, 

and 67 West Dune Way

Value Sites that are now Choice - 2 & 4 Skysail, 3 Topside, and 1 East Tack

In other news:

  • 34E Dune Way is now a yurt site.  It's 12' in diameter and sits on a platform.  It has a queen size platform for a bed (campers need to bring an inflatable or foam mattress) and a small table. The weekly rate is $475, rented Sunday to Sunday.  Once we begin taking reservations for less than a week in March, it will be possible to rent it for shorter stays for $65 per night Sunday - Thursday, $75 on Friday and Saturday.
  • Site 17N Cross Island is back in service after being closed for several years.  It is a value category site.  Small tent trailers can fit on it.
  • 8 Cross Island will become a new composting toilet site.

Most of our campers have provided us with an email address so we can send out bills and confirmations electronically.  If you are new to Hermit Island, or have not yet contacted us with your email, please do so at
