Welcome to Echo Lake Camp

We are so glad you are considering Echo Lake Camp for your next vacation. Here, on the quiet side of Mount Desert Island, in the heart of Acadia National Park, you will find a rare meeting of mountains and ocean that offers dramatic vistas and unbeatable hiking. This lakefront camp in Mount Desert, Maine, is an exceptional vacation spot amid this spectacular scenery.

Special Family Offer

KIDS STAY FREE first and last weeks of camp! Based on positive feedback from 2018 we are so excited to announce our Special Family Offer will return for the 2019 season! For two weeks only, Week 0 (June 22-29) and Week 9 (Aug 24-31), any paying adult guest may bring one child age 15 and under for FREE. So if you are a family of two adults and two children 15 and under you will just pay for the adults and bring the kids for FREE!

Special rates for ALL during Weeks 2 and 3

ALL campers registered for Week 2 (July 6-13) and Week 3 (July 13-20) will receive a discount of $200 off the published rate! This means that a family of four will save $800! This special discounted rate is available for these two weeks only.

These special offers are good for all Echo Lake Camp guests, old time campers or first time campers. Please share this offer with friends and family who you know will love the Echo Lake Camp experience. This is an incredible value for an amazing family vacation!
