Do not give up your dreams of comming to Canada so quickly. Check out this website and then call the appropriate people and ask. From what I have read, your DUI was a long time ago and they will take that into consideration. Overcome criminal convictions Good luck.

I find the Canadian policy of treating DUI as some sort of criminal offense highly objectionable. The very idea that they came up with that policy offends me. I am sure the United States government has no such policy against Canadian entry.
Considering the fact that Canada has such a policy I will boycott Canada and even suggest the United States adopt the same in return.
It will be a cold day in hell before I beg for entry into Canada to spend my tourist dollars!

I'll enjoy my weeks camping along the coast of Maine in my country...the USA !

Happy Camping!

Just called Sunset Point Campground...they have a site available for July 22 thru July 24 (departing on July 25th for points to the south close to Boothbay Harbor, Maine).
I decided to book and reserve in advance because Maine is a busy place in summer!

The Northern Coast ends in Calais, Maine....and yes there is plenty more Maine north of Calais but not on the coast....some folks are very very picky.
If you want to discuss the real Maine North Country talk to my wife...she was raised in the Madawaska/Fort Kent area in the 1940s.

Now to find something in the Mid-Coast area of Maine for three or four nights...then off to New Hampshire.....gotta love this retirement thing!

Happy Camping!

We have a coast of Maine cook book that along with recipes features popular Maine restaurants One we stopped at was Moody's on route 1 in Waldoboro. You will pass it on your way to Booth Bay. Two clam rolls and a slice of pie to go. Not cheap but very good. Next time I'll try the hot turkey sandwich. An order went right past me while we were waiting. Raz

Northern Maine

I live in Aroostook County, definitely, Northern Maine. I can see Canada to the east of me but the ocean is a long ways away. Aroostook is the largest county in Maine and Fort Fairfield is in Central Aroostook, about 3 hours NE of Bangor. We go to Portland, (south of Bangor) when we want to see the ocean. We have stayed in campgrounds down near Kittery.

One other thing

Just so you're not surprised, the state of Maine is going to charge you an additional 8% tax to stay in a campground, private or public. Raz

Raz is right about Moody's. We have been there many times, and have stayed in their cabins a few times too. I have a Moody's hat, T shirt, and we bought one of those rope door mats they sell. Mary has their cookbook, and sometimes makes their great chocolate pie. We have reservations at Camden Hills State Park in August. We have made many trips to Maine over the years as we have friends near Rockland, and our son lives in Orono.

Patrick,

Bob, Is correct, Camden Hills State park is another good place, if for no other reason its proximity to Camden and the tall ships that go in and out every weekend..

We just booked into Sunset Point for 4 nights for the Machias Blueberry Festival, ordered lobsters for the first night. I mentioned you to Sunset.

Safe travels and happy holiday.

Hi: mbbear... Here's some shots near Bar Harbor. Thurstons lobster boil, along the coast, and Thunder Hole.

I might recommend some points of interest: Boothbay Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, Stonington on Deer Isle (Old Quarry Ocean Adventure is a small camp, mostly used by kayakers, but they have several RV spots), Fort Knox and Penobscot Narrows Observatory (new bridge), Blue Hills Falls (tidal), Penobscot Marine Museum in Searsport.

The right term for the Maine north coast is "Down East". Have a great trip.
