Fiddlehead Campground

Fiddlehead Campground in Fryeburg, Maine offers some of the best Canoe/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 is 3 miles along the banks of the Saco River. "Primitive" means you get a large site with a picnic table and a nearby privy, to go with the great scenery and that "away from it all" feeling. You carry in your water and other supplies. Our week-end clients tend toward the younger, party-on-the-beach crowd.  From Sunday to Thursday, the Saco River is much quieter - an ideal time for family camping.
