How Do I Get There?

Closest Airports : Bangor / Greenville / Portland ME

From Portland : Take 295 to Rte 7 “Moosehead Trail “ in Newport. Follow until hits Rte 15

From Bangor: Take Rte 15 to Greenville

From Greenville :

  • Head out of Greenville on the Kokadjo/Lily Bay Road towards Kokadjo. Greenville to Kokadjo is 18 miles on paved road. (25-30 minutes). Watch out for MOOSE in the road!
  • You will enter Kokadjo after you see the big “Keep Maine Green” sign on the left, you will cross a small bridge and pass a store. Continue straight on the paved road through “town” (population 3)
  • Bear left above Kokadjo where the paved road ends and dirt begins (Baxter State Park Road)
  • After 1 mile turn left  at the fork in the road where our camp sign is (Spencer Pond Camps – Housekeeping Cabins – 12 miles). This is the Spencer Bay Road  There is an active logging operation currently in progress on this road. Please remember we have access to these roads, courtesy of the companies that own them, these are not public roads they are private. Please exercise prudence and understand the log trucks and loggers have the right of way! You may encounter a slight delay if the loggers are working near the road. They are very good about stopping their equipment and allowing you to pass through- usually within 5 minutes or less – please be patient..
  • Turn right at 8 miles after you see our camp signs (small maroon sign before the turn, that says Spencer Pond Camps 4 miles and metal sign at the corner.) Do not follow the signs to Spencer Bay. You will know you are on the right road if you cross a small bridge, and then shortly after go through a big green steel gate.
  • After approximately three miles you will go past a small gravel pit and cross another bridge. The road forks again here. Stay Left and follow the camp sign (Spencer Pond Camps – Keep Left). After bearing left, you will immediately cross another small bridge.
  • Go approximately one mile and turn left into our camp driveway at the big Maroon and White “Spencer Pond Camps Side

Follow the driveway down through the parking lot to the office – you have ARRIVED!

Spencer Pond Camps provide daily, weekly, and monthly rentals of six remote lakeside housekeeping cabins. The fully furnished cabins do not have electricity and are non-modernized. The ambience and conveniences you will find are reminiscent of "Little House in the Big Woods" completely comfortable and functional, but a far cry from the whirring sounds of loud generators, noisy campgrounds, and the distractions of electronic devices. This atmosphere conveys and draws you into a world where life comes at a slower pace, simplified, where you can share with your family the way life used to be many years ago. Many guests find this is their opportunity to truly get away from it all and go "unplugged" to relax and rejuvenate themselves. Cabin rental includes the use of canoe, kayaks, mountain bikes, all linens, seasoned dry firewood for your woodstove, "camp" wood for the fire pits, dishwashing soap, matches, toilet paper, plus an authentic remote Maine Woods experience!

Inside Scoop

  • There is no electricity here. Gas lights/kerosene are provided. They can offer a much softer and dimmer light.

  • Food — the refrigerators and freezers are small. The freezer space is about 1/3 the capacity of a traditional freezer- so remember to plan accordingly and bring canned goods. During the summer gardening season and into early fall the organic garden has seasonal produce that owners enjoy sharing with guests as well as fresh eggs (based on availability). The property does not serve food but do provide fresh caught lobster to guests on days that Dana returns from fishing. Please inquire one week in advance of your stay to get the most updated information on potential availability & current prices.
