Harrions's Pierce Pond Camps: Welcome


Treat yourself to the outstanding scenic character of this remote recreational resource, whether it be hiking, fishing, boating, canoeing, swimming, photography, wildlife, birdwatching, wild flowers, family reunions, small weddings, or just plain relaxing that interests you!

Harrison’s traditional sporting camps are set on the pristine waters of Pierce Pond, scattered with natural forested islands and surrounded by the handsome hillsides of western Maine. Built of peeled round logs in 1934, the camps have welcomed travelers from all corners of the world in what remains a lush, unspoiled habitat.

While at Harrison’s, enjoy peace of mind and a fully-satisfied appetite with all meals included (American Plan). Savor gourmet cooking at its best and delight in an unforgettable picnic by the magnificent waterfalls of Pierce Pond Stream, known to be the prettiest stream section of the entire Appalachian Trail!

In addition to the Appalachian Trial, which passes within a quarter mile of the camps, hikers will find other trails throughout the Pierce Pond Wilderness watershed that offer challenge and beauty. Famous for his twelve patriotic pancake breakfast among Appalachian Trail thru-hikers, Harrison's is an oasis that's talked about from Georgia to Maine. Guests will find the thru-hikers fascinating after over 2,000 miles on the Trail.

More than 120 species of birds, including the numerous loons in Pierce Pond, have been identified within the local area and wildflowers, some very rare, abound from May to October. Relax on the porch overlooking the Stream, and be amazed by the number of hummingbirds that come to feed just in front of you. And for those of you who are animal watchers, don’t be surprised if you see a moose!
