Like Michelle I need to do "THE WILD THING" every now and then I I was looking at some lake and campgrounds in Jackman. ME (Map 39) and found some small campgrounds with power and all. Not as far out as the primatives, but I see no roads to those. We'd never get the AS out there.

Robin THe Round ONE

Robin , the lakes we went to are all off route 9 , also called the Air Line , between Bedington and Crawford , there are many others also . The Ranger Station is just east of where rte 193 cuts off to Cherryfield ( map 25 .
First one was Mopang Second Lake , dash lines are gravel roads , most are very good , but they are gravel .
Second was First Chain Lake 2nd site in , saw eagles there (map 35)
Grand Lake Stream is quit an adventure but it's a long way in with an AS
For a change of pace head over to Jonesport on the ocean.The town operates a small campground on a jetty overlooking the town and harbor , it was less than 10 buck a night. Electric only , no water or sewer , but you can walk to town for lobster.
Best thing to do is stay at a commercial campground in the area then go adventuring sans trailer and see what your comfortable with getting in and out of.
Hope this helps.

Do you have a fishing pole???????

The Feds made a policy that requires that there be access to rivers for fishing. Have a fishing licence ready and answer the door with pole in hand.
There are many pull off areas near the rivers.
....Another option would be parking at a trail head on The Appalachian Trail. Once I found a parking lot near a river ( It might have been a local park ) A few times I slept on the side of the road. Either Vermont police are very tolerant of sleepy travelers , or there aren't many police around late at night , But so far I have not been bothered.

It sure does! I pulled my Atlas out and then ZOOMED in with my "Maine Fishing Maps" also by DeLorme which cross references the altlas but focuses on fishing spots, pools, dams, portage, etc. I do see the Station listed on it.

IRichard and I are thinking of checking out a few of these places, call it a "scout out" trip for future backwoods rally/rendevous sites.

Smile Boondocking in Maine

Hi There

I recently put on the EastCoastRVing_Traveling and the camping
tips group about 20 sites for boondocking in the State of Maine.
Also, some of the roads may lead to other sites.

There is a fairly extensive list of boondocking locations at one of the Yahoo Groups sites called:campingtipsgroup . You will need to apply to join the group, but once you are approved you will have access to an extensive listing of boondocking sites including sites in New England.

Once you are approved to join, log in ,
Then go to: Files
Then go to: Inexpensive Camping Northeast.txt
Where you will find a listing which should be of help in your search.

Boondocking Massachusetts RT#2

If you should ever need an overnight parking spot in Central Massachusetts
here`s one I found while fishing.
It`s on The old "Brady rd" cutoff ...... google map link
Google Maps
( sat. view) shows it as a Large turnaround on a deadend road near the Juction of RT#2 /Rt#31 .
It`s just a stoping spot not really for camping.. but in a pinch....
and if you have a kayak and like fishing ? check it out it`s a great place for that...
Also I`d say being near RT#2 ? its a pretty quiet and private place day or night.
