close to Katahdin trails

really close to Katahdin trails, reasonable price, great views

Starting point for a Katadhin adventure

There are drive up tent sites and lean to sites as well as walk in sites (fairly short walk and easy to locate). Great place to start for an adventure to summit katadhin and tackle knifes edge. I will definitely be back. Hiked past chimney pond (another campsite) with great views of the mountain. That site is hike in only whereas roaring brook has parking.

Serene and peaceful

Stayed here before we hike Katahdin. So quiet and relaxing. Nice wooded sites, with good privacy. Clean.

Great base camp for climbing Katahdin

We booked a night at a lean-to in Roaring Brook Campground so after we climbed Katahdin we wouldn't have to drive home. The hike took all day, but at the end we had a great place to chill! A dip in Roaring Brook (pretty cold one, I must say) and a small campfire with a BBQ capped off a fantastic day! Early the next morning, we took a short hike to Sandy Stream pond to hunt for moose and loosen up the body. It really paid off!

true Maine

we had a group site for 11 of us. we fit all our tents and a rain shelter easily and 5 cars in the parking across the street. keep in mind there is no running water here.bring plenty or water purifying filters or tablets. there is an outhouse and it is kept clean. there are also large wooden rain shelters between the group sites. be sure to put all food away at night.

First to Review
Roaring Brook

Pleasant campsites with fire pits. Stars are incredible at night if you can get enough of a clearing. Only downside are some of the rangers who make all attempts to scare people away from doing any of the more strenuous hikes to the top. Some of the most annoying rangers I've ever encountered.
