Eastport Windjammers. Half the price of Bah Hawbah, and better scenery, longer ride.
Eastport Windjammers
Do they offer any campsites? I can't find them on their website.

They are the cruise.

This is some of the local camping.

The right hand margin links you to other local cities.

We stayed at Seaview CG in Eastport

I thought Camden was amazing! No campsites I could find but it was years back. If you google it and look at the images it is classic Maine!

My husband & I went to Maine 2 yrs ago. I won a camper on EBay & we traveled from Va to Bangor Maine to get it. Since we were already there we went to Bar Harbor Island & went camping. Planned on 2 nights but stayed 5. Oh what a great time we had exploring. So beautiful. Explored Acaidia State Park, gorgeous. Wanted to do a lot more but with cleaning camper & hunting down a mattress store that took some time. We are going back. We stayed at Bar Harbor Campground. Was pretty nice. No beach access but ocean view. But perfect for a moment notice.

Looking for some local knowedge/experience which it sounds like you have. We're travelling, 42' motorhome plus Chevy Avalanche in tow, up the East coast . From Portland, Maine north, we plan to travel on 1 instead of 95. Want to cross into Canada at Lubec, New Brunswick and then ferry to Deer Island and off again to L'Ete, New Brunswick. Any concerns or potential problems I should consider, specifically, MH size, tow length, etc. Suggestions for todo's and or campgrounds along the way, also appreciated.

Thanks, Mario and Ann

I wouldn't bother taking Rt 1 as far south as Portland. I'd get on it no further south than Brunswick. There are a lot of lights and traffic on Rt 1 until you get north of Bar Harbor and head downeast.

In my opinion the most beautiful part of Acadia National Park is not around Bar Harbor but Schoodic Point. That area is much less visited and more naturally beautiful. Don't; know about RV parks there but I would park the coach and travel there via towed car. It will be 10 to 20 degrees cooler at Schoodic than Bar Harbor.

Our favorite parts of the coast are Central Maine (SO Thomaston/Owls Head (see the transportation museum), Rockland/Rockport/Camden to Belfast) and Downeast- between Bar Harbor and the Canadian border.

You didn't ask but our most memorable trip from Maine was to Prince Edward Island. Beautiful place/beautiful people

If you're coming south and you want a different view take Rt 9 (called The Airline) to Bangor and I 95

Wife is a native Mainah and I lived there for 20 years.

Try Narrows Too--- we are there now and there are several vacant 50 amp sites

Have to agree. I stopped at Scoodic Point for the first time on a trip to Nova Scotia and found it well worth the stop. I journaled the trip here.

Just another Idea for travailing.

I am not sure if this is POLITICAL or not but here goes.
If you are always looking for a campground or a place just to park for the night I will tell you what I did, I joined the Elk's Lodge and it able me to camp at different lodges all over the Country. (you can by books that cover the Country).
My wife and I traveled from Calif. to Main then dawn to Florida, we were gone for 6 months or more and stayed at 36 Elk's lodge's by the time we got home.
Check out your phone book for your location.

Just a thought.

Hi the wife and I were here 2012, Great trip the further north you go the less people. I'm not the best typer but...

Rt 9 what some call the Airline , because lots of hills we had no problem 2500 crew cab pulling a 27ft. TT. With our 2yr old Airdale ,yes we brought papers from the vet.
We were on this road I think from Bangor to Calais where we entered Canada
NO problems. Just drive nicely and you won't fly.
One of the absolute highlights of the trip camping on Grand Manan Island N B At the Hole in the Wall CG we nudged into a spot just off the cliff stayed a week. This site no utilities.They do have sites for you this place is very close to the ferry landing although the whole island is not big.
With your size trailer there is a provincial CG on the south end of the island I think W+ E maybe sewer. Nice place
The ferry to the island can accommodate your rig easy, 2hr ride, multiple travel times. I think every 2-4 hrs,two ferries.

The island peace and quiet, hiking fresh fish. This could be a great place to take a whale cruise as you are further into the Bay of Fundy. Actually one of the reasons for going to the island was an advertisement for the Hole in the wall CG that stated you might get woken up from the sounds of whales. No whale sounds no whales. We could not find a suitable pet sitter .(When we wed, we all choose our own jail cell) . Man or Women.

St Andrews was a nice "LITTLE" town.

I think the ferry to Deer island could be a problem for your size rig I would call and ask.

Light Houses abound,Fort Williams, Portland Headlight, West Quaddy LIghthouse,

Eastport Me. nice town to walk around, lunch,dinner, shop.

GOOD Luck

Jeff And Sally
