September, especially after Labor Day, is one of the best times to visit Maine. Things slow down from the hectic tourist season, the weather is usually still gorgeous, and everyone seems more relaxed.

Now October you have to watch. Most campgrounds and RV parks close by Columbus Day, some even earlier. If you are drifting into October be sure the places you want to stay will be open. Those that are open on Columbus Day weekend are likely having a last "Hurrah" or leaf peeper crowd, so you may need reservations. Some of the summer businesses will also be closed for the season.

Also be aware it can snow (not heavy, but it might accumulate) in early October in some parts of Maine and temperatures can reach freezing at night. Pack appropriate clothing

Lastly, watch out for the cruise ship dockings in BH. Some of those over 4000 people into town for the day which can quickly overwhelm venues (Anthem of the Seas, Norweigan Escape, etc.) This also applies to Portland, if you are thinking of exploring that city. Plan your visit around the large ships if you can.

Teamfoxy, I don't mind that you posted to this thread but I think you will get a better response if you start a new thread with your question.


This thread has pretty much run its course and I don't think many people are revisiting it.

Agree 100% with this,

We went int BH when one of those monster cruise ships was in port - also left within an hour as belly to backbone people on the sidewalks is not fun nor is trying to maneuver into a 12 foot longcompact car parking space with a 24 foot long truck.
