Vacation at Camp Arcadia

Thank you for your interest in embarking on a rustic getaway at Camp Arcadia in Southern Maine.

Vacationing at Camp Arcadia has been a tradition for over 40 years; our 367-acre campus on Pleasant Lake in Casco, Maine is a truly unique place to spend a vacation with your friends or family.

We offer the ability to truly disconnect and spend quality time with your family and friends in a bucolic setting. The atmosphere is casual and close to nature.

During Family Camp each family will have their own screened cabin with a front porch, deck chairs and a view of Pleasant Lake. All cabins have running water and some have electricity and fireplaces. Hot showers are located in our central shower house.

Family Camp  is a great location for extended families to get together, or for friends to have a reunion. 

Our meals are healthy and plentiful. We offer family style dining in our screened dining room, made-to-order or breakfast buffet, breakfast baskets delivered to your cabin, picnics at the beach and an outdoor Gala Dinner featuring fresh Maine lobster!
