One of the most exciting ways to enjoy your Maine vacation is by lodging at a sporting camp. The great appeal of sporting camps is their rustic setting, relaxing atmosphere and the legendary hospitality you’ll receive during your visit.
The people who vacation at sporting camps love the outdoors and appreciate the beauty and wonder of this extraordinary gift of nature. You might take part in the many outdoor activities or allow the natural setting to inspire an inner calm. You also appreciate that time shared as a family in a sporting camp can create closeness that is difficult to capture anywhere else.
Many sporting camps are located on one of Maine’s 6,000 pristine lakes or waterways. You wake up to the aroma of appetizing home cooked breakfast, look out your cabin window to a majestic view and in a short time you’ll be fishing, canoeing, kayaking, or swimming.
Some sporting camps are deep in the Maine woods surrounded by rolling hills and mountainous peaks. The vistas appear as you go hiking or mountain biking will provide you with memories that last a lifetime.
Among the thrills of making your vacation at a sporting camp is the sights you’ll see. Colorful flowers and lush vegetation, birds not often seen out of their natural habitat, deer, moose, fox, grouse and other wildlife.
Each sporting camp has a personality that fits its location. Some are rustic log cabins miles away from small towns with minimum facilities. Others have attractive lodges and bungalows with updated amenities.
Many sporting camps have professional guides to help you if you’re new to camping. Some have year-round facilities. In the autumn you’ll be surrounded by acres of colorful foliage. During the winter you can go ice fishing, cross country skiing, snowmobiling and hunting. To find a camp best suited to you, visit www.mainesportingcamps.com.
