It's quite a trek to Aroostock State Park, nearly to the Canadian border, but it's worth the journey. I came here to attend the Crown of Maine Balloon Festival, which occupied my early mornings and evenings. During the day I would explore on foot or take the car through the countryside and enjoy the Amish farmlands.
Sites the sites are more or less level and wooded with some privacy, but there's less privacy if you are located in the middle of the loop and people take trails to the latrine in the middle. There is also a bathroom/showerhouse near the beginning of the campground loop, near the divide between the loop and the uphill section.
Near the back of the loop a trail heads up south peak for a short scrabble and nice loop hike. There's a rickety tent platform with great views of the valley at that end and a lean-to on the other end of the ridge. Threre's a playground for kids. Bring your kayak or canoe or they have some available to rent.
This was an amazing stay would love to go back
Stopped for a one night visit. Huge site (most are big). Good space between neighbors. Bathroom/showers are free and spotless. I didn’t have time to hike but there are lots of options. Very quiet, although I was one of two camping parties in the place. Close to town. Very relaxing. Take your own wood. $5 gets you a puny ‘bundle’. Mine was wet.
We love to camp in State Parks, and the North East has plenty of them to try. For many years, I have looked at a spot on my Maine map called Aroostook State Park, way up north near the great city of Presque Isle. On the spur of the moment, our well travelled group decided to spend the weekend camping in Aroostook County and the great Maine woods!
Overall the experience is awesome. Camp grounds are a decent size. Lots of trails hike.
