Reminder: Camping Prohibition on Tumbledown Mountain

August 25, 2022

For more information contact: Jim Britt at:

As we approach Labor Day weekend, we extend this friendly reminder that camping on Tumbledown remains closed, and Rangers continue to patrol and issue summonses for illegal camping and fire activity on the mountain. The closure took effect in the summer of 2020 and visitors have appreciated and complied with the change instituted to protect the fragile subalpine vegetation and pond. Visitors now benefit from the cleaner, quieter enjoyment of day hiking on Tumbledown.

Remember, if you see something questionable on Tumbledown or at any Maine State Park or Public Land, tell us about it by calling (207) 287-3821 or going to our website.

Thank you for helping make hiking Tumbledown and all of our Public Lands a more enjoyable experience!
