Maine

Please recommend where to stay in Maine. Our first time with 37 MH and a Jeep.

Depends of where you want to travel. Acadia NP is outstanding. We stayed at the KOA at the front of Mount Desert Island. I was told we should stay at Smugglers Den.
Also visited Wells Beach and stayed at Wells Beach Resort. From there you can day trip to Freeport to see LL Bean, Old orchard beach and Kennebunkport.
I hear Point Sebago Lake is also nice.

The above poster hit on the most frequent sites folks visit. The three sites listed cover the Oceanside town setting, parks, and lakes. I suggest you visit Rvparkreiews.com to assist in your campground selection.

I would suggest that instead of asking such a broad question, that you do some research on Maine and decide what parts of the state you want to visit. Then ask about where to stay. With the exception of maybe Rhode Island, Connecticut and Delaware, most states are fairly large and diverse, and have several geographic regions.

Dave-I almost take exception to this comment . Just because RI, CT, and Delaware are geographically small, doesn't mean they don't afford some great camping and tourist areas. I'd be the first to admit that CT is a very expensive state to survive in, but also has quite a bit to offer.

Maine is a big state. Where do you want to camp?

Just spent five days camping in Acadia national park and hanging out on mt dessert island . If your motor home is 37 I would not suggest staying in the park. You would no fit. It is a great area with lots to do from hiking biking and if you like tourist towns bar harbor is right down the road.

Shore Hill RV park is on Rt 27 headed to Boothbay. Plenty of room for you, and it's right on the water. Beautiful place.

We camp in Maine frequently since family is there. We tend to hit the rv resorts a lot ... More for the kids to do. Recommend Bayleys campground in Old Orchard Beach and Point Sebago in Sebago Lake.

we have reservations next week at Hid-n Pines in Old Orchard Beach. Our first camping in Maine in years (and I mean Years). Just get out and enjoy yourself, no matter where you travel, there's a place to camp.
