I sure hope there's some lobster left when we get out there.
If you go to Bar Harbor area, LL Bean has free shuttle busses that take you all over the place. They work on a published schedule and go to all the campgrounds and then to the national park, downtown and other points of interest. They will also stop anywhere else you want, as long as it's safe for them to pull over

We were thinking about going to Maine next year at this time, stay for the start of the fall colors then gradually follow the beauty south along the Appalachians to northern GA. So now that our mouths are watering thinking about lobster, I think you have helped us decide what we will be doing a year from now, and have all have already answered our "where to stay in Maine and eat lobster" question. Thanks for a perfect thread!

Be prepared to wait in line, outdoors, at Reds Eats. We stood for 90 minutes. Will not do it again. It's delicious but so are many other places! After all, it's Maine lobsters! ❤

The lobster pier on Chauncey Creek in Kittery Point, Maine. Exit 2. Bring your own sides and drinks (adult or otherwise) as all they do is LOBSTER! Great location, great lobster. Don't know about MH parks as we always rode the motorcycles up from Boston.

If you stay at the any of the campgrounds in Bar Harbor ( or most of them) they have a free bus shuttle that will take you to Acadia Park, town and off the island, so you could get to other lobster restaurants. Really easy to get around. We stayed at the Oceanside Bar Harbor KOA, besides the lobster man, they also have a Pie Van that comes around selling fresh blueberry pies)

We are originally from Maine and go back each summer. We prefer the "Downeast" areas as opposed to the more "touristy" areas in the southern part of the state. You won't find any upscale campgrounds in Maine, period. If you mean cement patios and paved campground roads, etc., they don't exist. Gravel roads and dirt make up the majority of campground sites. This is pretty much the standard for most of New England. I suggest checking out the Downeast area (Washington County) if you wish to experience a true Maine experience. Happy travels

Try Hemlock Grove Campground in Arundel. Just outside the Kennebunk area.
A small, nice, and very quiet campground.
