  • Are reservations needed?
    • Yes. See “Reservations” page for reservation-only weekends.
  • How can I avoid rowdy groups canoeing the river?
    • Camping at Fiddlehead may help. The Saco River has something of a reputation as a “party” river – especially on summer week-ends. Campers at Fiddlehead agree to standard campground rules that help control noise and unruly behavior which has only continued to improve over the years. Security staff is on duty Fridays and Saturdays. Canoe-camping Sunday to Thursday is a quieter experience.
  • Is Fiddlehead “Family Friendly”?
    • YES! We love families and have enjoyed getting to know families who camp with us summer after summer. That being said: Beaches 1 and 2 are a more 18+ crowd on weekends so we recommend that families with small children call us to find their perfect spot or we recommend camping with us during the week for a quieter experience.

    • The fee is is PER PERSON. We are a unique campground in this. If you have any questions, please call us.
  • Can I reserve a particular site or beach?
    • Yes. Many folks have a long tradition of camping at a particular site or beach year after year. Be sure to call and make a reservation early to ensure you get your favorite place!
