Dear Campers,

Due to the continuation of stay-at-home orders here in Maine for the month of May, we are in the unfortunate position of having to cancel reservations made for the Memorial Day weekend, May 22nd -24th. Full refunds will be processed and mailed out next week. Hermit Island will remain closed to public visitation while these stay-at-home orders are in effect. Current State of Maine plans envision a gradual opening of businesses in June for Maine residents and in July for out of state visitors.   As all out of state visitors are required to be under 2 week quarantine, it is unclear at this point when we may be able to open the campground for this season. Please check back with us on our website and Facebook pages at the end of May for further information about summer camping.  We hope everyone stays safe and healthy and we look forward to seeing you in the future.


Christopher, Christina, Nick and Jeanne

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
