"The Maine Sporting Camps tradition started over a century ago, long before L.L. Bean pulled on his first pair of boots. In fact, some camps have remained in the same family and have guests who return year after year, even generation after generation. While these guests' grandparents may have traveled by railroad, steam boat, horse-drawn wagon or canoe, this generation has access by float planes or gravel logging roads."

Bailey Island is a small island on the tip of a penisular on the coast of Maine. The island is connected by a land bridge to Orr's Island and then to the mainland. It is part of Harpswell, Maine. The island is very small with a population of about 450 people. Bailey Island is easy to get to. Travel north or south on Route 1 and then go south on Route 24.
