DLLT Opens New Primitive Tent Sites

July 23, 2018

Downeast Lakes Land Trust is always looking for ways to connect more people with the amazing landscape conserved with the help of our community supporters.  While DLLT manages several water-access campsites along the Downeast Lakes Water Trail, primitive, drive-up campsites are few and far between.

DLLT is pleased to present the latest addition to the community forest – The Rolfe Brook Tent Sites!  Perched on a sandy hill above Rolfe Brook, these primitive campsites are conveniently located approximately 4 miles west of Grand Lake Stream.  Equipped with a picnic table, firepit, and a shared privy, the sites are not suitable for RV access, and tent camping is permitted on a first-come, first-served basis, free of charge.  In order to prevent extended crowding, the sites have a maximum stay of five consecutive days.

These family-friendly sites provide a great option for exploring the Downeast Lakes region.  If you are interested in tent camping, look for signage along the Fourth Lake Road, and turn left to drive in ¼ mile to the two sites.  For more information, please contact DLLT at (207) 796-2100, or email
