Explore Acadia from this fantastic site!

This site is simply amazing all around. I've stayed here several times, both with just a few people and with whole groups and every time it has been fantastic. The last time we stayed and it happened to rain a couple of times over our five day trip. This didn't stop us from biking the carriage trails or taking the free shuttle out to Bar Harbor and exploring there. Quick note, make use of the Acadia National Park Chimani app, it had lots of handy information, plus the shuttle schedule and it works without service. The sites are a good size and the bathrooms are really nice. There are pay showers a little down the road from the campground.

Great site near many wonderful natural features!

This is perhaps one of my most favorite sites. Located on the Kancamagus Highway in New Hampshire, Jigger Johnson is one of those great sites that has close proximity to plenty of hiking, exploring, swimming and isn't too far from the hustle and bustle of North Conway. I really enjoyed the sites here, and the showers weren't bad for a government owned campground. The sites are decently sized, we fit three good size tents on ours.

Love the proximity to Story Land!

This is a nice little campground for families, especially those looking to check out Story Land which is literally next door. We stayed here for a few days. One bath house and multiple flush out houses around. Pool and playground were great for our little ones. The people running the site were very nice and accommodating. They do wagon rides around the site in the evening too.

Jewel among Maine’s State Parks

This is definitely a great area to camp. It’s close to Portland and set on the north end of the lake. The facilities are fairly decent and definitely geared towards families. There are two little beaches attached to the campground which tend to be less busy than the main beaches in the other areas of the park. My biggest recommendation would be to stay on the Naples Beach end of the campground as it’s a bit quieter. We’ve stayed here multiple times as a family and it’s a great location.

Nice for families

This is what I would call camping for those that still want all the comforts of a resort, which is exactly what this place is. There a few tent sites and some RV sites, but Point Sebago is mainly full of their “cabins.” The “cabins” can be rented too. The sites have water and electricity which is nice and you have access to many of the resort amenities, of which there are lots. It wasn’t may favorite place to camp, but it wouldn’t be bad for families just starting to get into camping.

Want to really get away?

This is a great campground if you’re looking for a quiet place that’s mostly off the grid. Just a few miles away from the Canadian border in Western Maine, this campground was exactly what a group of us were looking for. We grabbed two sites right on the pond which were spacious and had water available. There are showers and toilets at a central bath house that were newly built and nice. There are also outhouses closer to the sites that were also on the newer side. Campground host was very accommodating. Definitely a place we plan to go back to!
