The Kennebunkport Conservation Trust offers primitive camping and day picnicking on our harbor islands. Experience the wonders of nature, beauty of the sea and magic of island life by coming for a visit.  You can reach the harbor islands by boat, being mindful of the tides and Mother Nature.  Small skiffs and non-motorized crafts (kayaks, canoes) are the preferred way to travel.

Island Camping

No fee camping is allowed at established sites on Cape, Trotts and Vaughn’s Islands.  Each Island has three campsites with a designated maximum capacity. 

Please click the image above or go to to reserve your campsite. Campsites may be reserved one week ahead of arrival for up to two consecutive nights. Advanced reservation are not accepted. Reservations are only required for overnight stays.

While camping is "free", you can help us with care for the islands!  Please considering becoming a Trust Member by making any sized contribution so we can forever maintain these special properties for all to enjoy for generations to come!  Together, we can make a difference.  Together, we can do great things!
