Maine trip

Planning a trip to Maine. We do state parks mainly have used some private campgrounds. In Maine one thing we really want to do is eat a lot of fresh caught lobster. What area should we plan to spend time in. Hiking sight seeing etc.

If you want good lobster, you have to travel a little further to NS and get Nova Scotia Lobster. Had to put a plug in for that.

We have not stayed here yet but it is on the list. They have electric and water. Camden Hills State Park. Its on the rocky Maine coast so I am sure there are plenty of lobsters.

Hi campfirefun Sunset Point Campground at Harrington Maine is not a S P its privite but very nice FHU, Laundry, 30 & 50 amps large sites and right on the bay at Sunser Point. If its lobster that you want the owner will pick them up for you right from the lobster boats & cook them for you if you don't want to do it yourself. Can't get much fresher than that. Sunset Point is a Pass Port America member so if you are PPA you can stay for 1/2 price which was $15 per night this past Sept. We stayed two weeks and toured all of that part of Maine and some of Nova Scotia. On a scale of 1 to 10 I would have to give this campground a 10. Here are a few pictures

Office notice the lobster sign he will post the time that you need to order to get the lobsters for that day. Also notice the red box on the picnic table it has tomatos from the owners garden and they are free just don't be a hog

Interesting...their state parks charge between $8 - 11 extra if you're a non-resident. Seems to be a new and unwelcome trend.
