Welcome To Balsam Cove Campground

A Lakeside Family Campground In Orland, ME

Balsam Cove is a rustic campground located in beautiful Downeast Maine conveniently close to many attractions. Enjoy the peaceful lakeside setting while not far from the action of Bar Harbor, Acadia National Park and the rocky coast, historic Bucksport, and Bangor with its shopping, dining, malls, casino, entertainment, and more. Situated on pristine Toddy Pond, Balsam Cove has been called Maine's "best-kept secret." Loons call at night, Canada geese and mallard ducks paddle near the shore, and fishermen bait their hooks with anticipation.

Leave the world behind as you make your way down our half-mile driveway. There’s a variety of full hook-up RV sites to choose from: lake side, upland or pull through. Picnic tables and fire rings. Bring your tent or RV or rent a rustic one-room log cabin that sleeps up to four and includes a microwave, small refrigerator and a covered porch to relax and enjoy the scenery. Wi-fi is free but rural and not reliable.

Balsam Cove is a family-centered campground, like a small-town neighborhood of the past, where your children can swim, bike, and make friends while creating memories for a lifetime. Relax and unwind, sit by the campfire, fish, or paddle the serene waters of Toddy Pond. The campground has for rent: canoes & kayaks, a pontoon boat and power boat, or boat slip rentals if you bring your own. Firewood & ice available. A camp store, bath house, laundry facilities, lakeside playground, swim area with grassy beach and picnic tables and so much more. There is a hayride and bonfire on Saturday eve and other activities on weekends throughout the summer. Book your vacation today and look forward to a terrific family experience.
