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 everything in between. In our experience, there is truly something for everyone at Camp Skoglund! Whether it be jumping off the dock, learning to water ski, kayaking, building sand castles in the shallow area of the lake, wood working in the craft shed, making s'mores at the campfire, relaxing in the hammock, or just watching the beautiful sunset over the lake, everyone always has a great time!
- 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
