This will be the 5thNSPN retreat to Saddleback Island in the Stonington Archipelago. We have reserved the Saddleback Cabin from the Maine Coast Heritage Trust for the nights of July 19 to July 21.
Saddleback will be our base camp; a wonderful rustic cabin is equipped with bunkbeds , kitchen, fireplace, a stove and kitchen wares; there is also a privy/outhouse .
Launch from Old Quarry Adventures Campground on Friday midday/ early afternoon for a protected paddle of 2.5 nm to Saddleback Island, with day trips (probably one to two groups depending on weather conditions and group preferences) on Saturday and Sunday, returning to Old Quarry on midday.
