Quietside Campground's unusual campground sites are meant for people to enjoy the experience of camping in its simplest form — yet comfortably and with some conveniences. Visiting campers are immersed in the wild, coastal Maine natural surroundings from natural indigenous foliage to native birds and wildlife. Your vacation with us is truly a breath of fresh Maine air!

In keeping with the new nationwide philosophy of "No Child Left Inside," we encourage a nature based, "green" atmosphere at Quietside. Enjoy the stars while sitting by the fire without bright lights. Listen to and observe the many birds around the campground. We have a full complement of outdoor books and information in the campground office. There are many programs in the area to encourage children as well as adults to head outside.
