One of my favorites: Little Ponderosa Campground

quiet...woodsy...very "state park" -like--except w/ hookups!

sites aren't crammed in too close to each other.

Second Chuck's recommendation. We did a drive through of this campground and it looked good. Even a swimming pool.

another one close by is:
Maine Campground Association - Lobster Buoy Campsites
The Lobster buoy
Kind of funky old campground but right on the water. And every night they offer FREE pie and ice cream at the little fishing shack/barn at the campground.
The way life used to be.

Campgrounds, Mid-coast Maine

A site for about 150 campground links sorted by town is

Maine Camping Online - a directory of links to Maine campgrounds and rv parks with websites

Look at Meadowbrook Camping in Bath. You can order a lobster from their pound that they cook for you.

We enjoyed our stay there as well - however the first spot they assigned us to was too small for our 25' Safari (they cheerfully helped us find a larger one). Be sure to tell them you have a 31-footer.

We thought the Boothbay area was just perfect - plenty to do, and an easy day-trip to Acadia. Be sure to take the lesser-travelled loop around the Schoodig (spelled wrong, I know) Peninsula.

Maine campgrounds

This past September, my wife and I rented a 27' motor coach and headed for Maine. We picked a campground in Wells Maine not far from Kennebunk & Kennebunkport named the Sea-Vu. It is located on a tidal saltmarsh with a view of the Ocean. They have sewer, cable and wifi. Their showers and bathroom facilities are ample and very clean and the sites are big trailer friendly.

From there we went north to Belfast Maine and stayed at the Moorings campground. There they have power and water, no sewer or cable. They have a dump station and for weekly renters they have a pump out service. Their location is one of the prettiest I have seen, and they are right on the Penobscot bay. Their sites are limited and the road is gravel with a steep incline. I saw everything from 53 foot buses to an old Bambi. The location makes it all worth while.

Regards,

Reganzo

Did they get a pool? they didn't used to have one. Their website only lists "swimming" under the facilities...doesn't actually say "pool". They have (had) a swimming area, on the edge of the river...you can launch canoes and kayaks from there, too.

oh, and I wouldn't say that Acadia is a "day trip" from Boothbay. unless the phrase "day trip" means something entirely different to you than it does to me.
its a good 3 hours drive on slow roads...

Just a note to everyone, we booked our week and paid in advance at ``little ponderosa campground`` in mid feb. To our surprise we went back to their web page 3/8/08 only to find that they went out of business, we haven`t heard from them yet on a refund. Contacted our card company and sending us papers to take approiate action. Now to start all over again

Oops! That's a bummer. Are you sure they are just not buried in ten feet of snow? If you do not get a refund I would camp there anyway....you paid already. I thought credit card companies took care of problems like this? Sorry.

how about Maine Campground Association - Lobster Buoy Campsites

Sorry to hear about the campground closing. Sadly, more and more pressure is being brought to bear on these coastal campgrounds to sell out to developers who make offers impossible for near-retirement owners to refuse. Siggest you try the Camden Hills State Park - 100 plus sites for small to medium trailers and RV's. Smack-dab in the middle of the mid-coast region.

Good luck!

gee, thats too bad. it was a nice place. (and I checked the website before I made that post...it was still up and running).
The thing about the state parks in ME...none have any hookups at all. LP was woodsy and not crowded, "like" a state park...but there were hookups available.

There is another commercial campground just down the road (rt 27) a couple of miles, but I never stayed there. its more of a "pack 'em in" type place.
Shore Hills Campground, Boothbay, Maine - in Maine's beautiful mid-coast region

There is also Grays Ocean camping on Southport, which is just south of Boothbay Harbor...gotta book well in advance, as this place is right on the water. Never camped there, but did do a drive-through. I don't think any of the sites have sewer hookups, but they do have water/electric.

Too bad about Ponderosa...we wanted to check that one out based on recomendations here.

Camden and Sebago SP's in Maine do offer W/E hookups...
