Fiddlehead Campground in Fryeburg, Maine offers some of the best Canoeing/Camping in New England. Fiddlehead Campground is the perfect base for a multi-day excursion on the Saco River. Fiddlehead Campground is a primitive campground that has 3 miles of river frontage on the Saco River. Primitive campgrounds means that you will get a large campsite with a picnic table and a nearby privy, that keep with the great scenery and that ’get away from it all‘feeling. In addition, you will have to carry in your water and other supplies. The weekend clientele tends to be the young, party-on-the-beach crowd. However, from Sunday to Thursday, the campground is much quieter, a more ideal time for family camping.
