Okay, so I never actually made it to the Jewett Cove sites, but there is free camping all over this place. There are campgrounds at Spencer Bay (35 sites) and Cowan Cove (18 sites) and a big gravel lot at Spencer Pond with fire rings. I never made it to Cowan, but the Spencer Bay campground had fire rings, picnic tables, vault toilets, and a (small) boat ramp. I've added these sites and will leave reviews there later, if I remember. There are a lot of other campsites and plenty of places to boondock all around the lake, and there's an "over-nite" parking lot in town near the Greenville Junction Boat Launch (on Depot Street just off Rt 6) that we stayed in for two nights without trouble. Pick up a map at the information center outside of Greenville or find the pdf version from the website.

I'm leaving a 5 star review here just for the area. Moosehead is amazing and Greenville is a decent little base of operations. There was some trash in places, especially the Spencer Pond lot, but I've seen a lot worse and Spencer Bay Campground was maintained very well by the volunteers. There's also logging, but it seems pretty low key.
