Any super nice private (non-cheesy) campgrounds in Maine?

I'm a down to earth kinda guy, but I'm gonna say it... Most private campgrounds that I've visited have been GROSS. Of course, we've found some exceptions to the rule -- but for the most part they are overcrowded, sites are too tight, dirty, and they are so not what we are after (to be in nature as much as possible).



Can anyone reccomend some good private campgrounds in Maine? The state parks seem to be booked out for eary Sept

I know what you mean.

For deep woods camping, we like The Cathedral Pines campground in Eustis. Surrounded by Red Pines. So quiet and peaceful. No sewer, though. Worth the drive for us.

Sunset RV Drive across the bridge to Canada and see the summer home if FDR have high tea while there, see Quoddy Head Lighthouse eat at Franks dock side cafe have the pancakes with Maine wild blueberries, watch the tide change at least 20 ft. .

Come up and visit us at Boothbay Harbor, midcoast Maine. We store our Airstream at Shore Hills RV Park (because we own a house in Boothbay Harbor and go to Florida in the winter). Shore Hills is rated highly, and looks great.

Check out Sabao Lake Campground. 11 miles up a dirt road from Rt 9 so make sure you have everything you need. Primitive camping. Just a couple outhouses there. It's on a beautiful lake. Eagles abound when we were there. Generators ok.

$5 per day. Fri & Sat $10

We wrote a blog about it.

we had a wonderful stay at Grey Homestead also in Boothbay Harbor. A great lobster pound just down the road.

On the peninsula just east of Freeport, home to LL Bean, you can stay at Wolfe's Neck Oceanfront.

We love Sandy Pines Campground in Kennebunkport, ME. It's a newly redone campground. The owners came from boutique hotels and the campground has a boutique feel. The sites were larger and the campground was very nice. The staff was well trained and very helpful. My wife and I enjoyed our extended stay there two summers ago in our 28 ft Flying Cloud.

We stayed at a brewery that was nice. Only 4 full service sites. Reasonable price, nice plants between sites for privacy. If you’re interested then I can take the time to figure out the name

Cumberland Fairgrounds

You might want to try the Cumberland Fairgrounds. Cumberland is an upscale suburb of Portland, Maine. Fairgrounds are owned and managed by the Cumberland Farmer's Club. It is home to the Cumberland County Fair in September and also the home of many race horses. The campground has electric (30 amp) and water plus a dump station and is located adjacent to the race track where you can view the sulkies exercising. Very quiet, safe and terrific walking and dog walking areas around the facility. Go to their website and contact the campground manager regarding availability.

Solution - sell the Airstream. Buy a class A RV Motorhome. Preferably a Newmar or a Tiffin and use the Class A only commercial parks. You will be happy. They will be happy. All solved. Pat

Chiwonki Campgrounds out of Wiscasset; big trees, beautiful views, very private. The maritime museum in Bath is worth a visit!
