“ Sleeping where the woods meet the coast.
Welcome to Southern Maine ”
WHAT WE LOVE AT HUTTOPIA SOUTHERN MAINE
The large pond, perfect for swimming, kayaking and canoeing
The peace and quiet of the pine forest
The proximity to the famous coastal towns of Maine
There’s nothing quite like the southern coastal area of Maine. It may be a relatively short drive from most of New England, but it’s far from ordinary. There are beaches and inlets to explore, thick pine forests, one-of-a-kind treasures and crafts, and much more – and located in the heart of it all is Huttopia Southern Maine.
A deep freshwater pond and mature forest set the stage. Choose from a variety of wood and canvas tents to fit your needs, or select a Vista tiny house and enjoy the surroundings through large glass walls and screened porches. Relax and breathe deep. Everything you need is here.
Our bistro is available with fresh, handmade foods throughout the day, so you can enjoy a paddle, a swim in our heated pool, a yoga class or game, or hop in the car for a beach excursion to nearby Kennebunkport or Ogunquit.

If you have canoes, kayaks or standup paddleboards, we welcome you to bring them with you! We also have some available to rent for use on-site, and you can reserve them by the hour as well as for half days.
Please keep in mind: Vehicles are restricted to the central parking lots, so you should be prepared to carry your canoe, kayak or SUP some distance to your tent or to the water. Please refer to the camp map so you can get an idea of how far you may have to carry them. Also, if you’re bringing your own watercraft, don’t forget life jackets – one is required for each person on the water.

You can even pick your own in season!
