Machias Blueberry Festival

Machias Wild Blueberry Festival - Maine: Official Site

Ginny and I leave for 5 days for the Machias (Maine) Blueberry Festival. We made reservations at Sunset Point Campground in Harrington, ME and did order their lobster dinner.

A number of our RV friends have stayed there this year. It's a small park that caters to people traveling in RVs, not seasonal RVers.

Yesterday we had RV Scamp guests a couple we met at the Scamp Camp. They attempted to make a reservation at Sunset Point and were told they were full. Even so they stopped by to check it out after camping somewhere else. The owner said... just stop by even if we're full, we can always fit a Scamp in.

Jim, there are a lot of campgrounds in the area. When you click on the festival link you'll see lodging at the top. Lodging includes about a dozen campgrounds. We've stayed at some of them. We figure 20 miles is not too far to drive and we absolutely love Sunset Point.

Sunset Point Campground - Home | Campgrounds Maine Coast | RV Parks Maine | Recreational Vehicle Camp Sites Maine

I just looked on the list and I see there's a RV park on the way to Roques Bluff, one of our favorite spots. We've golfed there but before we ever thought about RVs. I'll check it out this trip.

Your in a county half the size of CT and with about 35,000 people, it makes for low density traffic. This was before RVing one of our planned escape places. Like NL when have driven every road, even the little ones. WE have a Delorme road map of Maine.

Which cg's have lobster. When we stayed at a KOA in Bar Harbor in 2013 a fellow named Clayton, who is a fixture there was preparing them for the campers, really nice. He steams using the ocean water.

Sunset Point Campground...comes on a plate with the utensils. It's almost the only place we stay in the area, though we did stay at another small campground that Ginny will look up for you this week. Only 6 sites but a very noce place and nice owners.

Ginny says the little campground we stayed in was in Addison, ME.. Pleasant River.

Outside of NL we've only stayed in a KOA once. In NL there is a KOA near the Festival where we stay. It's a little expensive but close to the festival and hate to drive far at night. The Moose always win.

We stayed at Sunset Point this summer after Norm and Ginny recommended it.
We ordered lobster...it was great and the price was near half what we paid for the same ( but had it as take out) from a lobster pound in Belfast, Maine.
If I ever find myself in Maine again I know wher we will be camping.
BEWARE of a similar named campground in Lubec, Maine....we checked it out and it looked like pickles in a jar...campers packed in on top of each other!

The best is Sunset Point in Harrington, Maine and don't forget to order your lobsters upon arrival!

Happy Camping!

Patrick we have two lobsters coming shortly. We're in site 7 and the place is full. I asked him if he would be open in time for our NL Caravan in 2016 and he said yes. I'm sure a number of people will stop here including me on the way north and the way south..

We just got tickets to tonight's performance, music and a show. Lucky us some one had turned in tickets.

Tomorrow morning a tour of a blueberry farm after a day of fun it will end with a church fish fry..... Fasting after this trip.

By the way this is a passport park in May.

Patrick,

It's such a lovely little campground, just the right size. Just the size you'd like to own.

Yes the size is manageable and the location is excellent...but...remember you are retired so ownership is a no-no as that would end retirement and your endless travels!

Tell me about your NL caravan scheduled for next year...still trying to figure out what that "NL" stands for...???

Happy Camping

This sounds like great fun! I am following it with great interest and hope to be there next year with Darling new Husband and Camper in Tow!
We are bringing either the Lovebug or the Eriba Puck out East to Virgina and
hope to camp up and down the coast. Maine would be one of my first destinations!

Some years ago, I parked at Acadia National Park in one of the small little side campgrounds of the park and once on top of the ocean, in a very quiet spot. It was heavenly.

Best wishes for a great trip all of you! I'll be eagerly waiting for updates!
Cheers!
Gigi

Lobster LOvers

We're at Sunset Point Campground in Harrison, ME. They offer lobsters delivered to your rig. Here's our 3.5 lbs of lobster.

Tonight we're going to here a little music and go to a blueberry play. Pictures attached.
