About

Nestled in a peaceful valley in the Western Maine Mountains, Lone Mountain is a new campground perfectly located for enjoying the best Maine has to offer. Just a short drive from Bethel’s shops and restaurants, you’ll find a spacious campground with a variety of campsites and sparkling new facilities. ATV riders will enjoy immediate access to a large ATV trail network, and dedicated equestrian trails run by the property as well. Spend your days fishing or swimming in our sandy-bottomed river, and your evenings by the campfire amazed by the stars… Whether you are camping solo, with Fido, your whole family, or a group of friends, you'll feel welcome here at Lone Mountain. Kids love having open space to run and play, and a slow-moving sandy-bottomed river to splash and swim. Our campground is connected to the area’s extensive ATV trail network, and designated equestrian trails are a short ride away. We are located just a mile from the center of Andover, which is a small village nestled in a valley surrounded by the vast expanse of the western Maine mountains. The sandy Ellis River winds through the town, along our campground, and flows under the iconic Lovejoy Covered Bridge. On the edge of the wilds, the area is home to Maine's plentiful wildlife including moose and bald eagles. Just a short drive away you'll find the beautiful village of Bethel and Sunday River Resort. Whether you are looking for an exciting ATV excursion, a jaunt on the Appalachian trail, or a misty morning of fly-fishing, your Maine adventure awaits.
