Behind our house is a few acres of field. Next to my shop/ guest house is water hose & electric outlet. Also have other possibilities adjacent to other outbuildings that have electricity and water. We do have a lot of friends and family visits in July, August and into September so no guarantees we'll always have space but we try. We've had many guests lately and many want electric and water. I've just started asking $5.00/night because it is impacting our bills but still planning to donate proceeds to local charity. Suggested Local Attractions:Close to beautiful harbors in Rockport and Camden. Many lakes & state park lands close by.

No smoking. Clean up after pets.. Prefer no generators after dark. Typically 1 night stay is OK but under certain circumstances we'd be OK with a second night.

Location

Access Road Conditions: Might be a few light branches if you're over 12' tall otherwise, our 11'6" tall truck camper does fine. Long driveway but anything under a big Class A should be fine. I don't think over 32 foot would make it around an outbuilding. As long as we're not in super wet mud season, field offers easy turn around. But who wants to be in Maine before May anyways. Its not exactly a pull through situation, more of a turn around in the field. Tow Vehicle Parking Details: You can leave it connected or park next to your rig but pleasedon'tblockdriveway. Plenty of level space.

Age:

Accommodating Details: Active couple that travels to & from across country and between Baja, Mexico and British Columbia with skis, snowboards, surfboards, SUP, kiteboards. Sounds exhausting really but feel very fortunate to be retired and still able to participate in activities which have been the culture I've identified with mostly. Home Town: Rockport, Maine Favorite Boondocking Locations: Baja, Mexico. West Texas, in the mountains when its above freezing temperatures. Skills or Expertise to Share: Pretty handy with boats which translates to RV'S. Love to "putter" with projects in my shop. Not afraid to attempt to fix most mechanical items & know enough when I shouldn't. Not offering any repair work though, have too many projects already.

    Amazing spot, right by Camden. I climbed Mount Battie that day so it was lovely to have such a nice sleep. Thank you very much!

    The adage...location, location, location sums up this quiet, parklike country estate nestled near Camden's harbor! Thanks for sharing.

    So thankful to have found this spot! We were greeted warmly by the host who helped us know where to park and get settled. Hook ups were offered, but we chose not to use them. And the yard was large enough to fetch our dog! This is one of our favorite Boondockers Welcome sites. Hope to stay again if in the area!

    George, you rock, what a great host. We really enjoyed our stay on the Back 40. Centrally located Rockport and Camden. Thanks for a wonderful stay.

    What a beautiful area! The host was very interesting, knowledgeable about the area and kind, offering water and electric. Though we didn’t use it, we were happy to know it was available if needed. One night just wasn’t enough.
