ABBOT, MAINE

Spacious Skies
Balsam Woods

Hello Campers!

For the short term, we are redirecting our ATV-riding guests to the park-and-ride 5 minutes down the road. We are working with the town leadership and the local Abbot Explorers ATV club to reopen direct access.

Camp (and Ride!) On!

Spacious Skies Balsam Woods Campground is a hidden paradise of a campground located right in the heart of Maine, just a half hour south of Moosehead Lake, the largest lake in Maine, and 60 miles as the crow flies from the northern terminus of the Appalachian Trail, Mt. Katahdin, in Baxter State Park.

We offer both wooded and open sites that can accommodate most rigs. Each site includes a picnic table, fire ring, water, 30 or 50-amp electrical service, and most offer sewer. Groups and tent campers are welcome.

Our campground is less than a minute’s drive from Piper Pond, a 2 mile long lake with public boat launch and beach access.  Onsite, we have a camp store and snack bar stocked with necessities, treats, and goodies for the whole family. There is no shortage of fun with our heated pool, classic rec hall, playground, a new jumping pillow and gem mining! We have three cozy rustic cabins as well as three deluxe cabins for those wanting to experience the beauty of the great outdoors but who may not be ready for the tenter or RV life!

The folks here are extremely friendly. This is our second time here and we really enjoy coming to this campground even though we live about 4 miles away. It is clean professional and everyone is so nice.

I loved the place, it is very good. Very clean we rented a cabin and I was delighted with the cabin, it has air conditioning and is for 5 people and the bathrooms in the place are very clean

Excellent campground. Super clean bathrooms and showers, pool area, every where. Nice large sites. Super friendly staff. Heated pool, kids stuff to do. Cozy size. Close to bike paths, kayaking, history and more.

Owners are very nice and very hard workers. They create one of the best RV campground that we have stayed at. Very clean throughout all the buildings.
