    Friday night weather should be good for viewing. Mostly clear in the mid 20’s. Moonrise will be at 7:31 PM. Plenty of flat space for a tent, as well as second mostly dilapidated shelter up top. Some might like to tent or cowboy right on the flat spots on the ( frozen?) grass. Cowboy TV provided.

    I know wolves and coyotes travel in packs, but is it the same of werewolves? =P

    how was it? sounds like an excellent time. i whole-heartedly endorse this trip! loved watching the sunrise from atop Bald Rock, maybe the best viewpoint on all of the ME coast.

    Hey Tjamrog, hope you enjoyed your stay up there! I would have one question regarding the shelter on the photo: is this the one on Bald Rock? Does it still show a plate inside reading like “this shelter was built by international volunteers…” or so? The reason why I am asking is that I was one of those volunteers who re-build the shelter in 1994. And I am curious how it looks today? Greetings from Germany! Torsten

      Yes, Torsten. It is the one on Top of Bald Rick. Unfortunately it is in serious disrepair by now. Few people would stay there right now. Thanks for your work!

        Sorry to hear the shelter is in a bad shape now! I am actually travelling to the US next week, and I am planning to make a short trip up to the shelter. I wonder if I remember correctly where it is located: from Google Maps, it looks like I have to take Bald Rock Road from Stevens Corner up the hill and then somewhat leftish towards Bald Rock Mountain? Can I enter Camden Hills State Park from there, or is there a different entrance? Sorry to bother you, but I only have limited time for that trip and I do not want to miss the direction, ending up elsewhere. On a map from the park authority, there is a trail numbered 8 and called Bald Rock Trail, I hope this is the one taking me to the shelter? Many thanks and again greetings from Germany. Torsten

    Yes. you can park in the Steven’s Corner lot. There is a map at the kiosk at the start of the walk up the road. You walk up a mile and then turn left on the Bald Rock trail. I might go up with you if I am free.


    • Torsten Bremer says:

      That’s very nice of you, but I don’t want to taken up your time! I should be able to find it with your directions. Many thanks! Torsten.

      P.S. Do you by any chance now Jarvis Johnson? He used to work for the park autorisierten and was our supervisor when we build the selber.
