RV Vacation Idea:  Saint Croix Island National Historic Site - Maine
Saint Croix Island National Historic Site
Saint Croix Island Int'l Historic Site
Just a short drive from this month's campground of the month is Saint Croix Island International Historic Site.
The island is the site of the first French attempt to colonize North America in 1604 and is the site of the beginning of a European presence in North America.  These early French explorers endured a brutal winter in 1604 - 1605.  Trading between these men and the Passamaquoddy native Americans allowed them to survive and continue their explorations.
You'll want to take the self-guided interpretive trail to learn about these brave explorers.

Terra Pass Carbon Offset Option

We believe in Green RV'ing!  El Monte RV offers customers a way to offset the carbon emissions from their motorhome vacation by requesting the carbon offset option. This option is completely voluntary and is a very nominal fee.  We encourage you to consider this when booking your trip!


You can request the carbon offset option when you reserve via the call center, or when picking up at the rental counter.  It's easy, affordable, and every cent of this nominal fee goes straight to Terra Pass to fund various carbon-offsetting programs.
