Coastal Camping in Northern Maine

This is plan B for this summer.....Plan A was Nova Scotia but now information from members of this board seems to indicate my 15 year old DUI incident may make entry into Canada impossible.

Plan B is the Northern Coast of Maine...NOT The Southern Coastal area as that is way too crowded with tourists.. Perhaps in the Lubec area or around Ellsworth, Maine......any suggestions? Would love to find something with full hook-ups right on the coast.

Thanks in advance for the much needed help.

Happy Camping!

Searsport Shores just north of Belfast is on the ocean. That's midcoast on Rt. 1. I can't review the actual campground, but the area is lovely. Family have lived there for years. I stayed at Cobscook State Park--very north off Rte. 1 and loved it. Was tenting at that time, so don't know about hookups.

We just went from Kittery to Lubec on US 1 in early June which is considered out of season. Stayed in Acadia National Park, Lamoine State Park which is very close to Acadia, and Cobscook State Park near the border. No hook ups in state parks so you will have to go to private campgrounds. After the 4 th of July it's best to make reservations. Acadia and the surrounding area gets very busy. Raz

Sunset Point Campground, Harrington, ME

Any where on the coast in northern ME can be fun. This is a little family owned campground on the water where you can get cooked lobster delivered to your rig. It's not too far from anywhere. We always stay there on our way to NL. We hope to be there in mid-August to attend the Machias, ME blueberry festival.

Norther Maine

The last I looked at a map, which is just now, Northern Maine is nowhere near a coast. The Eastern most tip of the state by Eastport.

The original poster mentioned the northern coast versus the southern coast. Eastport is on the northern coast as is Lubec

Norm & Ginny, Thanks for the defense....I have hunted in October in Northern Maine (Aroostook County) for over 20 years from sporting camps and knew that the Coastal points in Maine end at Calais. I have never "RV Camped" on the coast of Maine and will take you up on your suggestion...one question: How large and/or private are the sites at Sunset Point Campgrounds?

Thanks for info.

Happy Camping

Cobscook is one of my favorites, if you bring your passport you can visit Campobello, maybe even stay at Herring Cove PP, which had power hookups when we stayed there 6 years ago.

Be careful if you stop at Rays Mustard, we still buy all our mustard from them, after 6 years. Great stuff.

I would guess there are maybe 30 sites. It's not a big campground with any seasonal people, at least in memory. It's nothing like a traditional campground and it's n9t like a state park. The sites are reasonable sized, some more private than others. My memory is the ones on the water side are most private.

I'd contact the owner and make a reservation at this time of the year. Generally I would say an older crowd though we're always there in the off season. There's a little Ocean side state park that we almost bought a house near, at Roques Bluff, no camping though.

Thank you for the info...we will be calling them today...will spend at least 3 days there then move down the coast once we locate another campground south of Bar Harbour and north of the busy Freeport area.

Enjoy your summer!

Happy Camping to all!

In defense of Norm Collins post, if you look at the heading it says 'Coastal camping in Northern Maine. My first response was the same as his.

The northern part of Maine has a north east and south east facing coasts. Washington county is decidedly different from southern Maine's York county. It is the poorest county in Maine with a population density of only 10 people per square mile, that alone makes it interesting to me. One fifth of Washington county is inland water. 85% of the worlds wild blueberries come from Washington county hence the Machias Blueberry Festival

Machias Wild Blueberry Festival - Maine: Official Site

All that said it has a beautiful coast where people can find their personal hideaway. As well Washington county claims the eastern most point in the United States (outside of Alaska).
