One of the coolest things about the Saco River is the ability to camp on sandbars and beaches as you make your way downstream. This is such a great privilege as generous landowners have agreed to let people use their property for recreation. There are several rules that paddlers need to understand before setting camp.
The section of the Saco from Swans Falls in Fryeburg, Maine to the take out in Hiram, Maine, (just above the Rte 117 bridge) is the only section where this agreement is in place. You’re allowed to camp on UNPOSTED sandbars and beaches only. Remember, you are a guest. So be gracious and respectful.
