From the jagged, rocky coastline of the east to the deep forests of the west, Maine (ME) camping is sure to make any camper a happy camper.
Eastern Maine is entirely shoreline offering campers some glimpses of sandy beaches, but mostly providing a forested, rocky coastline. Camp on rugged coastal cliffs overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Acadia National Park is a popular destination for campers and outdoor enthusiasts, with both secluded, private tent sites and popular, family-friendly camper and RV sites. Hike or drive up Cadillac Mountain to overlook the famous Somes Sound, and then head into Bar Harbor for its famous seafood. Maine's coast offers campers a unique chance to be in Sunrise Country, where the sunrise hits the States for the first time in the morning.
Head up the Kennebec River Valley into West Central Maine where campers can sleep under the thick pine tree canopy near tranquil lakes or gurgling rivers. Low, rolling mountains, picturesque waterways, and complete wilderness make the interior of Maine a scenic place to camp. Campers can get some exercise by hiking sections of the northernmost section of the Appalachian Trail including the famous Mount Katahdin. Check out urban camping opportunities near cities like Bangor and Portland as well.
