The “Pine Tree State” of Maine is close enough for RV campers to consider a trip from our Boston, MA location—just three short hours’ drive to Portland! That’s why we’ve pulled in a whole net full of Maine RV vacation details for you on this page. Your trip to this New England state will be one of your best RV camping jaunts ever, if you start here and then make the journey to Maine your own.
Maine RV Camping Destinations
From lighthouses to horseracing, with every conceivable kind of outdoor recreation in between, you’ll love travelling in Maine by RV! This state’s rugged seashore will take your breath away and the timeless feel of its fishing villages will remind you what keeps America going. Follow the call of Maine’s world-famous museums or wander a windswept beach—you’ll find the perfect place to do it as you get to know this New England gem.
Maine National Parks
Acadia National Park, that craggy “ Downeast Maine” destination on Mount Desert Island, is a favorite with our RV rental customers. Nicely-planned campgrounds right on the Island make for easy access to all the National Park’s attractions.
Put on your hiking shoes when you enter this Park! More than one hundred miles of trails lead to mountain vistas, ocean shores or lush forestland, so be sure to bring along your camera. You’ll also find marvelous places to bike, boat, climb and ride horses, as well as locations for quieter pursuits like bird watching.
Maine State Parks
What you’ll find in the State Parks of Maine runs the gamut from lakeshore to remote mountain lookouts. Locations such as Sebago Lake State Park in the State’s southwest corner feature sunny beaches as well as forest hiking trails. On the other hand, Lily Bay State Park in the Maine Highlands Region offers rustic campsites near the deep, cold waters of Moosehead Lake (keep an eye out for the magnificent creatures that give the lake its name!)
From Camden Hills State Park on Penobscot Bay to wildlife-rich Mt. Blue State Park in Western Maine, motorhome campers will find so much to do they’ll wish they had more time! Use this link to learn more about the Maine State Park you’d like to visit first on your vacation.
