Acadia National Park

The crown jewel of the North Atlantic coast, Acadia National Park protects nature’s splendor along the highest rocky headlands along the Atlantic coast. Habitats with high biodiversity, clean air and water, and rich cultural heritage are just some of the attractions this state park as to offer. With seven peaks above 1,000 feet, 158 miles of hiking trails, and 45 miles of carriage roads with 16 stone bridges, you might have more fun getting to your destination than relaxing there. Take a guided bicycle tour or boat cruise along the coast. The available activities are almost endless. Take the kids, pack up your dog, and don’t forget to bring your sense of adventure! A wide variety of RV camping sites are present in and around the park, so you’ll have a plethora of options for planning your Acadian journey.

Sebago Lake State Park

Discover southern Maine’s natural beauty at the Sebago Lake State Park, where lakeside campers can enjoy the calm waters of Maine’s deepest and second largest lake. Find year-round recreation with boating, swimming, fishing, and of course RV camping. Wooded areas give a respite from sun and beach activity, and you can have tons of fun bicycling on park roads or hiking the marked trails. The campgrounds feature 250 sites, so there’s plenty of room for summer vacationers.

Camden Hills State Park

Achieve breathtaking views from atop Mount Battie on Maine’s coast. Located a few minutes outside the town of Camden, this park offers a solid mix of outdoor activities and opportunities to explore Maine’s beautiful coastline. New England culture is on display in the nearby towns, and you won’t be at a loss for fun activities or amazing natural sites. You will enjoy wireless internet, electric and water hookups, as well as dump station. Activities include hiking, birdwatching, horseback riding, and off-road biking.

Lily Bay State Park

This seasonally available campground is located in central Maine where you can explore nature with hiking trails or in a canoe or motorboat. There’s swimming, birdwatching, and plenty of great picnicking locations. There aren’t any standard RV hookups at Lily Bay, so make sure to pack your rig with plenty of fresh water and propane. There is a dumping station for emptying tanks and showers available to minimize the amount of water you need to bring in. But the extra effort is worth the sites available around Moosehead Lake. Boaters and campers can enjoy the Moosehead region during warmer months, followed by hunters in October and November, as well as ice fishermen and snowmobilers in mid-winter. Fishing on Moosehead Lake for salmon and trout is usually best in the weeks following ice out (typically early to mid-May) or when the waters cool in September.

Whether you’re planning a trip through New England or you’re a Maine local, you’ll be sure to have a blast exploring these state parks in your RV.
