The space

Fisher Ridge Yurt is one of the yurts that guests can choose from when staying at Maine Forest Yurts campground. If Fisher Ridge Yurt isn't available when you would like to stay with us, please view our other listings Hemlock Ridge Yurt or Zen Den Yurt.

Maine Forest Yurts campground is owned and operated by the Crowley Family who developed their property for the adventurous at heart.

In 2008, Bob Crowley went on the reality show Survivor: Gabon and 39 days later he was voted the oldest winner in the show’s history. He also won the ‘Sprint Survivor of the Season’ which is voted by the fans for their favorite player. His knack for the outdoors and his survival skills allowed him to comfortably play the game of Survivor.

After Bob retired from teaching high school physics for 25 years, he started Maine Forest Yurts, which offers individuals, couples, families and corporate groups an eco-friendly, camping experience where guests can connect with nature in the Maine outdoors.

Accessible year-round, experience seasonal adventures including kayaking, canoeing, fishing, hiking, wildlife viewing, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, or just sit back, relax and take in the tranquil peace of the natural surroundings. And of course dogs are always welcome.

Bob and Peggy were very welcoming and helpful. The yurt was comfortable and well equipped for the weekend. It was a great introduction to the secured forests of Maine. It was also a good base to explore the Portland area.

It's sweet. You will find it extremely cozy. The outhouse is very clean. There are plenty of dishes and pans for your use. Games and books. Flashlight is helpful for going from firepit to yurt. Outhouse to yurt. You will stay warm with the wood stove. Page greeted us and was willing to help if we needed anything.

A couple days before our stay I called to confirm our reservation and ask a few questions. Page was super helpful. She answered all the questions I had including the location of a few hiking trails nearby. Upon our arrival Page met us at the entrance and took us to our yurt where she showed us around. The yurt was both spacious and clean. The large outhouse was complete with two sawdust toilets and was clean and odor-free. On our day of departure we had a flat tire and Page and Bob took the time out of their day to not only help us but to teach us how to change our flat. Thanks to Page and Bob our stay was both a relaxing and stress-free experience! We had a wonderful time and would recommend staying here! We will be back!

We had an amazing time at the yurt, everything was clean and tidy and check in was very easy. The yurt was very private, very dog friendly, and had everything we needed for a lovely weekend. The log burner meant that we were never cold, and the bathroom was very clean and well maintained. We would definitely stay here again.
