Visiting Maine on Your Next Road Trip



The state of Maine hosts a wealth of natural beauty in the sometime tourist region that is New England and despite its small size, there are hundreds of Maine campgrounds and Maine RV camping resorts to make navigating the state while RV or tent camping a breeze. Campobello Island, home to the Roosevelt Campobello International Park, has achieved "International Park" status, with the island spilling across the Canadian border. Once the summer home of President Franklin Roosevelt, the park offers miles of hiking trails meandering along the northern reaches of the American border.

Consisting of more than 35,000 acres on Mount Desert Island, Acadia National Park is New England's premier park – and one of America’s most majestic getaways. This virtually unspoiled paradise captures Maine at its best, with lush evergreen forests surrounded by rocky cliffs towering over the waters of the Atlantic.

Follow US 1 south from Acadia as it follows the Atlantic coast and you'll soon arrive at the town of Bath and Popham Beach State Park. This 4.5-mile sandy stretch is one of the prettiest beaches in the state. While the cold waters may chase away swimmers even in the peak summer months, a walk along the shore promises a wonderful opportunity to soak up some sun and absorb the natural surroundings of Maine’s ocean side. There are also some great Maine campgrounds in this area near the beaches.

One of the largest bodies of water in the northeast is Moosehead Lake, a freshwater escape complete with more than 300 miles of shoreline. Hikers, canoeists and anglers (outdoor types of all stripes, really) have flocked to this lake for decades. Despite its popularity, the surroundings remain relatively untouched.
