26-acre Cow Island is a mere 3 miles from downtown Portland, Maine, but it feels like a world away. Cow is in the town of Long Island, Maine and is situated 300 yards north of Great Diamond Island. Each year from March to November, Rippleffect offers adventure and leadership development programs from this island campus. Cow Island is on the Maine Island Trail waterway, and the western side of the island is always open for public use and camping through a free registration process.
