I'm one of those that likes to check out the campground ahead of time before booking but i know i won't be up there any time soon but when we do book for the weekend we'll end up scoping out other campgrounds in the area while we are camping. ing
Thanks!

Is that the clothing optional campground?

There are many beautiful places in Maine. We have been along the coast starting in Kennybunkport, middle coast Five Islands, up to Tenants Harbor.
Lots to do and there is a wonderful place in Wiscasset to have dinner.

We got our Airstream in July and have been "fixing". Our travels to Maine have been by auto and we stayed in Bed and Breakfast. Now we would like to locate places to stay with our Airstream and experience Maine again.

Oh to be back on the Eastern Shore! Come on, Maryland is great if your are on the Bay. My parents had a farm on the Miles River for 12 years just outside St. Michaels. Wonderful memories of the bay, Oxford, duck hunting and all those crabs!

But as Sarah, we are looking for something coastal in Maine for our Honeymoon. We have camped with tents on hermit Island and been from Bath up to Acadia but now we too are looking for that perfect spot on the rocky coast to camp with our Airstream. I want to wake with the sounds smell and sights of the coastal sunrise!

Back to the question at hand...

We stayed at Wild Duck two years ago. Our main reason was to attend a Portland Sea Dogs game. We thought the place was excellent. The owners were very helpful, the place was clean, nice sites and very scenic. Excellent free WiFi. We were at site 24 which was perfect as it had nice "marshy" views. The owners told us that the campground is a favorite among teachers, for whatever that;s worth. The only problem was when my in-laws (fellow Airstreamers) looked up the campground and saw that it was "adult only" they were convinced it was a nudist colony. No such thing.

I will return this year for another Sea Dogs game. Go Sox.

We recently went to this campground and didn't have to jump any fences!

The views of the marsh are gorgeous with plenty of birds and wildlife for viewing. There is a separate canoe/kayak launching area next to the office and a rack for storing your boat for the weekend, if you like. The marsh offers a leisurely boat ride without ever having to go out to the ocean. All sites are w/e/s with the exception of four sites which are w/e. IMHO those four sites are the best as they are located alone on a peninsula which juts out into the marsh.

Be forewarned about the two reverse speed bumps in the road into the campground just after the office as they are the worse I have ever encountered -- they are deep so the vehicle tires drop down into them. After the initial shock and jar after we hit the first one, we came to a complete stop and slowly rolled over the second one but were still jarred.

Prices are reasonable considering the area (tourist haven) and location (waterfront)...

In season = $39 - 47 with full hookups vs. 29 -35 off season
In season = $36 for the peninsula sites vs. $27 off season

Off season is defined as 5/11 - 6/14 and 9/9 - 10/8 excluding holidays.

Wow! This is an old thread! I can't remember where my information came from Chris, but it probably should have referenced the Eastern half of the U. S. versus the entire U. S. That would make sense to me since, as I remember, the Great Smoky Mountains was #1 in the East for a long time. The Western U. S. has a lot more National Parks to choose from and Yellowstone, and the Grand Canyon must surely have more visitors than Acadia. In any event, #1 or #10, they're all spectacular!

I have heard a number of people said it was in the Acadia brochures which must not be updated every year. I was making a quiz on Maine which I referenced and the first thing I found when I looked was that it was the most visited park, but then I started seeing a discrepancy and dug further.
