Hermit Island Campground, Phippsburg, Maine
There are numerous campsites found along the Atlantic shoreline, but to actually reserve a campsite with an ocean view is a rarity. Yet, some of the 275 sites at Hermit Island can stake this claim, overlooking the waters of Casco Bay. The island is a 255-acre peninsula in Small Point at the southern tip of Phippsburg. You can choose a site along the sandy beach, atop the rocky cliffs, near the tidal pools, or in the forest. The campground also owns a 50-foot deep-sea fishing boat that sails daily for cod and tuna.
$35-$60 a night; 207-443-2101, www.hermitisland.com
