What to pack

Before you stay at Tops'l Farm, it's important to know what we provide and what you may want to bring with you. Choose to keep it super simple — eat out at local restaurants & enjoy a minimalist experience at the campsite. Or, you might want amp up the escape a bit, cook your own meals around the fire, and give more proper  “camping" a try. Whichever way you choose, planning is the key to enjoyment. 



Depending on the time of year, it is usually a safe bet to pack for a variety of temps in Maine. Layers baby layers! Fleece, comfy pants and of course, some slip on shoes/boots and fuzzy socks for around the fire. With the many lakes and beaches around a swim suit is also a good bet. 


If you're looking for spur-of-the-moment room service & cute little bottles of hot sauce, you might try a proper resort down the road. While we won't be able to satisfy your 11 pm dessert craving, we do offer a few pretty amazing “order in advance" services that we think help to define the Tops'l glamping experience. Our camp store is open daily from 3-7 pm. If you are interested in these as part of your stay, check out our Food & Drink Page to order provisions for your stay with our “Pack My Cooler” service.

Aside from that — bring a cooler stocked with your own favorite food & libations or visit the local haunts (we have plenty of recommendations for your group). We provide grills, fire grates, cutlery and basic camp cooking supplies.

Towels/Sheets/soap, etc

We've got you covered here. All of our tents/cabins are super comfortable and outfitted with the standard stuff you'd find available in a hotel room (bedding, pillows, towels, etc). The shower house has shampoo/conditioner, soap & rubber duckies.

What not to pack

Single Use Plastic

PLEASE think twice before loading up on single use plastic while at Tops’l. We provide most everything you need for cooking & eating while at camp. Our water is potable, so just bring a water bottle. We are focusing on reducing the waste that we create by operating our spot for folks, and appreciate you taking the effort to be mindful about this.
