Welcome To Balsam Cove Campground

A Lakeside Family Campground In Orland, ME

Balsam Cove Campground is located in beautiful Downeast Maine, in Orland, conveniently close to many attractions. Enjoy being tucked away at a 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 to a lakeside, rustic, friendly campground. There’s a variety of sites to choose from. Bring your tent or RV, or rent a rustic one-room log cabin that sleeps up to four people and includes a microwave, small refrigerator, and a roomy covered porch to relax and enjoy the scenery. All RV sites are full hook-up and have picnic tables and fire rings, and the campground offers free, limited rural Wi-Fi.

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. There is a camp store, firewood & ice sales, laundry facilities, a lakeside playground, a swim area with grassy beach and picnic tables, restrooms with hot showers, 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 great family experience.
