FALL camping is the best!

There’s so much to love about fall camping in Maine—the weather is still wonderful, there are fewer crowds, and the bugs and humidity are gone until next year. Best of all, Sandy Pines Campground has some of the best fall foliage in Maine. The oak, maple, and birch trees surrounding our sites create a colorful background where you can bundle up, kick back,  and savor this magical time of year.


Whether you enjoy hiking, biking, or kayaking, the fall colors make every outdoor adventure even more enjoyable. Nearby Smith Preserve is a haven for walkers and mountain bikers with a fun combination of packed trails, bridges, and technical terrain. Road cycling is also at its peak, with fewer cars on the roads and spectacular scenery around every turn. Apple picking is the quintessential Maine fall activity. The good people at Spiller Farm in Wells have lots of crispy, crunchy varieties to “PYO” or “grab and go,” plus some of the tastiest cider donuts in Maine.


Summer may be over, but our heated pool is still the perfect place to relax, and ANY day is a great day for a walk on one of the many local beaches. Popular things to do in Kennebunkport, like First Chance Whale Watch,  the Schooner Eleanor, and the Pineapple Ketch maintain their daily cruise schedules through October and are all within a 15-minute drive of Sandy Pines kick back, kick back, Campground.
