We are a small, family ran campground nestled in the River Valley area of the lakes and mountains region in Byron, Maine. Our campground is very accessible being located just off of the scenic by-way, state route 17 on the Swift River. Our quiet natural campground and cabins are set up for samples who want to take in the beauty that Maine's Lake and Mountain region has to offer. We have something for every type of camper, including RV sites, tent sites and cabins that have a rustic charm. Sites range from no hook-up to full 20/30/50 amp sites, wooded and secluded, some with riverfront access.

One of the highlights of our campground is the Swift River, which is a popular place to pan for gold, collect rocks or swim. Coss Canyon has a 32 feet high gorge where the water depth occasionally exceeds 20 feet. Also in abundance from our backyard are hiking trails, ATV trails (250 miles), scenic overlooks, quaint towns, eateries, wildlife and fishing/hunting areas. Our ATV friendly camping areas are just a short jaunt to the trails, and you can ride right to your site. Snowmobiling, snow shoeing and skiing are only a few of the top highlights during the winter months. No matter the season, we hope you and your family will fall in love with our laid back neck of the woods. See you soon!

Visitors
We would like your stay to be as enjoyable as possible, so we ask that anyone staying at your site as well as your guests/visitors are familiar with the following policies. Failure to follow them could result in being asked to vacate your site without a refund. Parents are responsible for their children’s behavior, safety and whereabouts during their stay with us.

All visitors must check-in at the office and must leave by prior to quiet time – NO EXCEPTIONS!

Pets
Limit is two per campsite.

Pets must be cleaned up after and not left unattended. Dogs must be kept leashed and excessive barking will not be tolerated. Aggressive dogs are not permitted. All dog owners must provide proof of rabies vaccination. You are liable if your pet bites anyone.

Quiet Hours: 10:00 p.m. - 8:00 a.m. Daily
Excessive noise is not permitted at any time.

Please keep voices low and lights to a minimum. Radios and voices should not be heard outside of your campsite. Campers that need to be repeatedly spoken to after quiet hours will be asked to leave the campground with no refund.

Children under the age of 16 are not allowed to roam the property alone after 10 p.m.

Firewood and Campfires
We do not allow any outside firewood to be brought in. It is illegal to bring firewood into the state of Maine due to the spread of the Emerald Ash Borer and many other bugs that can be transported from non-kiln dried firewood. The heating process not only dries out the wood, but also kills the dangerous bugs that can be spread. The beauty of our surroundings would be heavily impacted should our trees ever contract these bugs.

We realize that a bonfire is an integral part of the camping experience; therefore we try to keep the cost of our wood as reasonable as possible.

All campfires are to be kept within a campground approved ring and may never be left unattended. No moving of fire pits is allowed.

Do not remove branches or bark from live trees, nor cut down any trees (up to a $500.00 fine per tree may be incurred). You may collect and burn dead fall.

Please observe any fire condition notices posted in the camp store.

Do not put your trash in fire pits. However, it is ok to burn paper products.

General Policies
Sites are only large enough to accommodate one vehicle. The speed limit is 5 mph in the campground. ATV's are to be used for in and out travel only and not at all during quiet hours. Anyone operating an ATV must have a valid registration/permit to do so and follow the Maine laws & rules.

Please review the IFW ATV & Snowmobile Registration for Maine residents and non-residents.

Any garbage cans on camper’s site must have a sealed lid. All garbage must be disposed of in the dumpster when leaving the campground at the end of each of the camper’s stays. Campground dumpsters are for garbage generated ONLY while staying on the premises.

No firearms or fireworks are permitted on campground property.

Young children must be supervised when using playground equipment, campground store, showers, or other facilities, and must wear a helmet when riding a bike in the campground.

Tobacco use, smoking, vaping or electronic cigarettes are prohibited in any common areas.

Swift River
Swimming/Cliffs. Coos Canyon is a beautiful spot where there are cliffs on both sides of the Swift River. Swimming in the river and/or being on the cliffs is at your own risk. We do not have a lifeguard on staff and the cliffs can be dangerous even to those who exercise care. Children should not be in the river or on the cliffs without parental supervision.

Kayaks, canoes and tubes are allowed at your own risk.

Fishing is allowed with a Maine State fishing license. Visit the Maine Government website to obtain a license.

Pick up after yourself. Do not leave any trash or debris along the shoreline or in the water.
