Camping in Maine allows you to experience the wonders of our uncommon state firsthand. Wake to the sunrise warming your tent or RV, relax around the campfire listening to loons call in the evening, and spot a moose drinking from one of Maine’s 32,000 miles of rivers and streams.

From the mysterious and wild North Woods to the serene coastline, Maine campgrounds cater to every level of experience and comfort. Maine boasts 542,629 acres of pristine national and state parks, including the venerable peaks of Mt. Katahdin located at the northern end of the Appalachian Trail. World-renowned for its hiking, Mt. Katahdin rises 5,271 feet above sea level and offers breathtaking views and trails for hikers of every experience level. Take on Katahdin’s Knife Edge in Baxter State Park for a thrilling challenge, or fish one of Maine’s 6,000 lakes and ponds or 3,500 miles of coastline for New England’s best fresh and saltwater catches.

Camping on the coast is a unique Maine experience that will delight even the most seasoned of campers. Let the wave’s lullaby soothe you into sleep, and enjoy the convenience of camping next to your favorite water activities. With an abundance of beach and oceanfront campgrounds to choose from, your hardest decision will be which shore you’d like to wake up next to.

Motorhome and RV travelers are always welcome in Maine. Maine’s RV Parks and Campgrounds provide hookups, Wi-Fi, campfire sites, recreational grounds, and authentic Maine hospitality. Find ocean and beachside resorts exclusively for RV camping and mingle with likeminded travelers searching for a little slice of Maine heaven.

Reserve the perfect wilderness, island or oceanfront campsite. Privately owned Maine campgrounds and National and State Parks have individual methods of reserving campsites, so be sure and call or check individual websites ahead of time.

So grab your bedroll, flashlight, and tent, or load up your camper with all the essentials of home: an authentic Maine camping adventure awaits you.
