Cardigan Campsites

Nestled at the base of Mount Cardigan and surrounded by 6,000 acres of forest, Cardigan is a year-round retreat for outdoor enthusiasts. Here, you can step out onto 50 miles of hiking and skiing trails, enjoy the backcountry experience without the long hike, or bring a group to stay at our group campsite, just a 10 minute walk from the lodge. Later, spend the evening relaxing by the campfire with your friends and family.
