In 1981, Craig started the groundwork for what is Shin Pond village today. Soon after in 1986, Terry and her then 3-year-old son, Blaine, joined him. Throughout the years we have continued to expand our business to meet the recreational opportunities in the area we call home. In 2016, Blaine, Elka, and their children returned home to contribute to our family business. In 2017 we celebrated our 35th year in business. We look forward to the future!
Shin Pond Village is a family-operated recreational facility. We offer thirty campsites, eight housekeeping cottages, three guest suites and two homes on Lower Shin Pond. Our Main Building has a general store, gift shop, laundromat, the “Loon’s Nest” guest area with satellite TV and a full-service dining area. These conveniences are open from 7:30 am to 8:00 pm Sunday through Thursday and 7:30 am to 9:00 pm Friday and Saturday. Gas and oil are available. Located just fifteen miles from the Northern entrance to Baxter State Park, Shin Pond Village offers the summer visitor great fishing, uncrowded hiking adventures, plenty of wildlife and family fun in a peaceful, scenic setting. We offer canoe and kayak rentals for you to see moose in the Sawtelle Deadwater in the early morning.
