We were pleasantly surprised with the beauty of our campsite #49. Our site had a short walk in but was totally worth it to be right on the Whiting Bay. Our site was one of the few with a beach at high tide. There is lots of hiking in the area. We can’t wait to come back.
This was the perfect location to explore the mid Maine coast. The camp sites are large and well spaced apart. Bathrooms were clean. We loved the view from the top of Mt. Battie. Definitely check out the trails along the ocean. Mt. Battie Take Out is a great stop after a long day of exploring.
We did a overnight here on a road trip. During the week there were only a few camp sites used. The river is a beautiful aqua color, but has a swift current. The hiking trails are well maintained. It seemed like most of the other campers were there to ride the 4x4 trails.
The Texas state bison herd lives here. We were blown away by the bison strolling right through the campsite. The sites are kinda close together. But we were there on a Tuesday in April so we had plenty of privacy. Wish we would have planned more than 1 night here.
We were only there for 1 night in April during a wind and hail storm. Our site had good protection from the elements,and views of the dunes and mountains. The bathrooms were clean and nice. There is a small camp store near the camp site that sells firewood and other necessities. Outside the park entrance there is another store with more items and rents sleds for the dunes.
