Just finishing our 18th year and we'll be back. The lake, the loons, the weather and the cabins couldn't be nicer. And you'll never find better hosts than Rondi and Wilbur. Kayaking everyday, wildlife abounds and grilling fresh fish and veggies every night from local merchants makes for relaxing at its best. You will enjoy.

My sister, her husband and I have been going to Camp Skoglund for over 20 years now and can't imagine a better vacation spot. Life is easy at the camp--all you have to do is enjoy the beautiful lake and the wonderful camp staff (Rondi and Wilbur!!). Kayaking out to the osprey nest or over to visit some diving loons,...

The family all gets to do whatever they want at this neat rustic camp.

We like this place so much that the 24 hour drive for us is totally worth...

This coming summer will be our seventh year "at camp"!!! Each year we grow to love Camp Skoglund, Echo Lake, and camp owners "Uncle Will" and Rondi more and more!!! Our tradition has been to use Camp Skoglund as a reunion location for our extended family. Our group has included a wide range of ages, from babies to grandparents, and...

What would you like to do on your vacation? Short of seeing the Empire State building or the Statue of Liberty, you can do it all here! We have been coming here every summer for 22 years! Beautiful setting on Echo lake. It is rustic, but charming rustic. If you want to stay in a Sheraton hotel, this is not...

My wife and I, along with another couple, have been returning to Camp Skoglund every year since our first visit in 2004. The restful atmosphere and the beauty of Echo Lake make being there something to look forward to all year long. One quickly gets to know the operators of the camp, and you soon feel like "one of the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Velkommen to Camp Skoglund. Meaning "woodland" in Norwegian, Skoglund is a family owned and operated vacation resort which was home to a bustling camp for boys from 1957 until 1990. Wanting to continue sharing our idyllic summer home with long time friends and guests, we have converted Skoglund to a family camp with fully equipped private guest cottages. While still maintaining many of the amenities of a camp atmosphere, our lakeside retreat is completely private and serene and provides all of the tranquility that Maine's special inland lakes have to offer. We are located in the very popular Belgrade Lakes vacation region - one hour from Portland and Freeport, 15 minutes from Augusta, and one hour from the coast. Central to the mountains and hiking and everything special to Maine! Our cottages are fully equipped with everything you'll need, including linens. Cottages rent by the week only - Saturday to Saturday. ... more   less

“Best lake in Maine”

“We've stayed at the Lodge and Andy's. Both were great. Andy's is more removed from the main camp and is your own little house on the lake. The Lodge is right by the water.”
