Are we allowed to have visitors?

Yes. Visitors are permitted but please advise them of the following information: All visitors must stop at the office first, no exceptions. There is a visitor fee, even for their pets, but it may be refunded if the stay is less than one hour. Visiting hours are between 8am and 9pm. Visitors who arrive between 8pm and 9pm will be charged for an overnight stay. Visitors with their own camping equipment must obtain their own site. We reserve the right to deny access to any visitor. You are responsible for your visitors, so if you are not on the premises, your visitors will not be permitted.

Are overnight guests allowed?

Yes, if guests check in before 9pm. Overnight visitors may set up one tent in addition to your camping unit. We have a strict 1 unit and 1 tent, or 2 tent maximum policy. We reserve the right to deny any visitor an overnight pass. Over-crowding a site is not permitted and is determined by the office.

How many vehicles are permitted per site?

Most sites can accommodate 2 vehicles. However, there are some sites that can only take one. If necessary, one can be left in our parking lot.

Are fishing licenses required to fish in Lower Range Pond?

Yes, they are. Licenses can be obtained through the Maine Inland Fisheries and Wildlife website. Licenses can also be purchased at our local Town Office and Walmart.

I'd like to bring my boat, what do I need to know?

Lower Range Pond has a 9.9 hp limit strictly enforced by Fish and Game. If you have a motor, current registration is required. We offer daily, weekly, and monthly boat slip rentals. You are not permitted to leave boats by the water’s edge. Ask the office upon check-in for boat slip rental availability. Otherwise, your boat must remain on your site when not in use. We do not have any additional parking areas for boat trailers. They, along with kayaks, canoes etc, must be left at your site when not in use.

Are bikes permitted?

Yes, during daylight hours only. They must be ridden on roads, not between the sites. Helmets are strongly encouraged.

Are pets permitted?

Yes, at the discretion of the campground. We have a designated dog beach located by the boat launch. They must be quiet and hooked to a leash at all times, even on your campsite. Please do not allow them on the campsites of others. They must be cleaned up after. They are not allowed in the beach, pool or playground areas, nor in any of the buildings. They may not be left unattended.

May I bring my minibike?
