The Maine sporting camp tradition started over a century ago, long before L.L. Bean pulled on his first pair of boots.

A few camps opened their doors in the mid-1800s and are still in operation today. In fact, some have remained in the same family for generations and have guests who return year after year, even generation after generation. While these guests’ grandparents may have traveled by railroad, steamboat, horse-drawn wagon or canoe, this generation has access by float planes, snowmobiles, and gravel logging roads.

Experience Nature  •  Good Food  •  Historic Surroundings  •  Outdoor Activities

What has not changed is the hospitality and variety of experiences offered to the outdoor enthusiast. Camps in Maine vary from those in very remote areas to those just outside of town; from rustic log cabins without electricity to modern lodges with all the amenities. In addition to the relaxation in Maine, traditional American Plan lodges provide three hearty, home cooked meals served in an attractive main lodge – some have cocktail lounges and recreation rooms. Many camps offer Housekeeping Plans for guests who want to do their own cooking. Nearly all camps provide canoe, motor boat, and equipment rentals and offer the services of knowledgeable Maine Guides.
