Stony Brook Campground Introduces Renovations Under New Ownership

Stony Brook Campground in Hanover unveiled recent renovations to enhance the camping experience under the new ownership of Mike Blais. Blais, who acquired the property ten months ago, has initiated several renovations to enhance the camping experience, focusing on the visitor experience.

A major innovation introduced by Blais is the installation of timers on the campground’s 18 lights, which now turn off the lights every night from 9:00 p.m. to midnight. This move is designed to reduce light pollution and provide campers with unique views of the night sky.

Blais’s inspiration for these nocturnal enhancements stems from his own experiences in Jackman, where the visibility of the stars left a lasting impression on him, and his time hiking the Appalachian Trail, according to a Bethel Citizen report.

Stony Brook Campground is a family-friendly haven set in the western foothills of Maine, sprawling over more than 50 acres. The campground is well-equipped to accommodate any camping style, from large RVs in pull-thru sites to cozy, secluded cabins and lean-to shelters. Each site, whether premium, deluxe, orstandard, offers a variety of amenities including 30 or 50-amp electric service and internet access, ensuring a comfortable stay.

The campground is equipped with a comprehensive range of facilities to enhance the camping experience. These include modern flush toilets, accessible restrooms with hot showers, laundry facilities, and a fully stocked grocery store with RV supplies and essentials. Recreational facilities abound as well, with a recreation hall, swimming pool, and numerous sports courts and picnic areas. For outdoor enthusiasts, there are also opportunities for river fishing, hiking, and enjoying time in the off-leash pet area.

Campground owners and operators can draw valuable insights from Mike Blais’s strategic approach to enhancing guest experiences at Stony Brook Campground. Blais’s focus on improving the camping experience through thoughtful renovations and the installation of light timers showcases nature experiences. This method of reducing light pollution not only caters to a niche but growing segment of eco-conscious travelers but also creates a unique selling proposition by offering spectacular night-sky views. 

By implementing similar environmentally friendly features, campground owners can differentiate their offerings in a competitive market, appealing to a broader demographic seeking a more immersive outdoor experience.
