Reminder: Camping Prohibition on Tumbledown Mountain
August 25, 2022
For more information contact: Jim Britt at: Jim.Britt@maine.gov
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.
- Tumbledown remains open for day use and is a wonderful hike.
- Camping in the area is available at nearby Mount Blue State Park and Rangeley Lake State Park. Reservations are encouraged and may be made online at www.CampWithME.com or call 800-332-1501 from within Maine or 207-624-9950 outside of Maine. The call center closes for the season at 4:00 PM Sept. 9 and internet reservations close at 4:00 PM on Sept 11.
- Taking care of the land is all about respect.
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!
