Camping in Maine

Maine has just about every camping experience a visitor might want.

For those looking for the rustic experience, you’ll find small clearings in wooded areas near lakes and streams just big enough for you and a place to pitch a tent. Quiet, solitude, and star lit skies will cap off the experience of camping in Maine’s remotest areas.

For some, the camping experience can be found in assorted commercial campgrounds that offer everything from basic tent sites to far more elaborate sites with water and electricity hook-ups for pull behind trailers or recreational vehicles. The campgrounds often have amenities such as swimming pools, areas for sports and games, convenience stores, dumping stations, drinking water, picnic tables boat launched, firewood for sale and bathing facilities. Some even offer onsite shopping experiences, dining, and elaborate entertainment and activities. There are over 200 licensed campgrounds in Maine according to the Maine Campground Owners Association.

And for others, there is the experience of camping in a cabin or lodge on the grounds of many campgrounds. These range from quaint log built cabins that can accommodate a small family to grand rustic lodges that can accommodate many more guests.

You may want to camp at one of Maine’s 12 state park campgrounds with locations to suit your taste. For more information visit
