Welcome to Camp Hope on beautiful Lake Winnecook (also known as Unity Pond) in Central Maine. Thank you for considering our cabin style camp for your vacation. It beckons to those with an appreciation for nature and a tranquil escape to the real world. At our private and secluded location you will have the opportunity to experience the great outdoors while having all the comforts of home. Even though Camp Hope is secluded it is only 2-1/2 miles to an authentic general store where they make the best pizza around and sell the cheapest gasoline .
Spend your leisure time at our retreat and enjoy the privacy and spectacular views. Lightning Bugs (Fireflies) light up the evening sky along with the stars. Many times wild turkeys and deer cross our open meadow. There is nothing like fishing on the lake or from the shoreline as you listen to the sounds of nature. There are majestic loons with their haunting calls to complete the Maine experience.
Nearby in the town of Unity, there is a recreational park named the Field of Dreams, along with a full service grocery store and several restaurants. There is a golf course on the lake shore nearby and weekly stock car racing at Unity Raceway. We are about 30 minutes from the coast – Belfast is our county seat and a wonderful city for walking down to the harbor and checking out the shops.
If your pace is a little bit slower, relax on our spacious screened-in porch facing a 2 acre field to let your mind and soul join harmoniously with nature. A nightly campfire and making s’mores should be part of your Camp Hope experience!

I love Camp Hope and it is great for family gatherings.
JOYCE LACHMUND purchased this cabin in 2002
This is the lake our parents brought us to as kids.
The camp gives us a great place to entertain and relax. (not always at the same time)
We enjoyed a wonderful stay at Camp Hope, and our daughters enjoyed fishing in the lake. The screened porch was a peaceful place to sit in the evening, and the cabin was equipped and furnished with anything necessary. The owner was extremely helpful with our stay, and I would highly recommend!
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed are week stay at Hope Camp. The camp is equipped with all the conviences of home. It is very private and we thoroughly enjoyed the wildlife - deer, numerious bird sightings (No turkeys though). The nightly fire fly displays were spectacular as we sat around the camp fire pit. Very quiet and private. Hope to visit again.
My wife and I stayed at Camp Hope over the fourth of July holiday.The listing description was completely accurate. When we arrived, the property and cabin were exactly as we had imagined. Prior to our trip, we had quite a few questions, which Joyce, the owner, answered promptly. The cabin is set back from the lake on a large secluded lot. There are neighbors, but their property cannot be seen. During the day we spent our time swimming. Although there is no beach, a short walk through the reeds brings you to open water (which my nine month pregnant wife had no trouble navigating). In the mornings and evenings, we enjoyed the spacious screened in porch, listening to the bull frogs, loons, and even had a deer passed by without noticing us. We had a wonderful time at camp hope and would definitely recommend it as a perfect place to unwind to family and friends.
We just returned from Camp Hope and we want to turn right around and go back! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It is a quiet location, well stocked with kitchen utensils/supplies, and the cabin itself is clean, comfortable, and well maintained. The owner was responsive in answering our questions and I would definitely recommend this property to a friend or relative. The cabin and area is as described. We enjoyed the loons and other sights and sounds that can only be discovered when off the beaten path. We did, of course, encounter mosquitos, but were prepared with bug spray....much to their chagrin!
I LOVED my experience at Camp Hope! The cabin is exceptionally clean and it's actually quite spacious inside. All linens, as well as kitchen supplies/utensils, were provided and having a washing machine onsite was an added bonus. The property is surrounded by pine woods and is consequently very quiet (we didn't even realize we had neighbors for the first three days!). Although the lake (which can be clearly viewed from the cabin and which makes this a SPECTACULAR place for stargazing) is not ideal for swimming, it is wonderful for paddling/fishing and the wildlife love it! Deer, frogs, blue jays, a great blue heron, an owl, and even a porcupine were regular visitors. I was looking forward to falling asleep to the cries of loons but there were none to be seen or heard from on this trip....maybe next year! Using verizon wireless, I had ample signal for voice calls though data transmission was spotty--3G seems difficult to find outside of Maine's larger communities. As it turns out, however, lacking the internet for a few days can be good for the soul. You will love Camp Hope - I guarantee it!
This cabin was an excellent choice with respect to privacy and cleanliness. We enjoyed the seclusion and opportunity to be in nature...unfortunately the bugs enjoyed us as well!!! Camp Hope is a great place to relax and unwind. There were many supplies and activities there for us to use and enjoy.
