Wow...that seems a lot to ask for, prime piece of spectacular real estate that Deer Isle is.

Have you checked out WBCCI courtesy parking in that area?

I think you got me pegged all wrong Maggie Maybe I didn't realize Deer Isle is that fancy, or misunderstood the dos and donts of courtesy parking. Just looking for a place to park and work. Doesn't need to be Deer Isle itself, just somewhere up that way, 30 mins from that area is fine. Just trying to save myself a 4 hr drive home plus another 8 hrs round trip on Sunday! Guess I'll check the camp grounds.

When I boondocked in VT a few years ago on a farm, I was fine way out back next to the manure pile. Upwind, of course.

Deer Isle is beautiful, and pretty upscale if you have never been there.

Who knows...you might find someone here who can help you out.

If not, there are a couple of private campgrounds there.

Good luck.

You can search for members of this forum who offer courtesy parking.

Select the "community" tab in the dark blue line above. From the dropdown select "member list".

When the member list opens select "search members" then select "advanced search" (look below the blank space in the drop down)

Fill in the blank for "city" and "state". Then scroll down and click on "courtesy parking" and select "yes" from the drop down.

When you click on the search button a list of members who offer courtesy parking in that town will appear. If there are none remove the city to broaden the search to the state. You may find someone nearby.

If you find a suitable match send that member a PM to ask if they can accommodate you on the dates you desire.

I did this search and found only a few members in the whole state of Maine, none in Deer Isle.

Good luck!

There is a camping with services in Lubec nearby. There is a camping on Deer Island but no services.

I believe there is a farm in that area that is a part of the Harvest Host program, if you're a member.
