We stayed in the campground that is in Acadia National Park...maybe Blackwoods? We really liked the location and privacy of the sites. Also, the beauty of the park!

In Portland, we stayed at Wassampki Springs. Do not recommend it though.

For Portland we've stayed at Wild duck and Baileys in Scarborough just south of Portland. Wild Duck is a small adult CG spaces are a little tight . It is a very quiet park. Baileys down the road is polar opposite big active family CG. It has water park,adult pool and good sized pull thru sites. Just down the road toward the beach on the left try the seafood restaurant was very good. In Acadia we have stayed at Bar Harbor CG really enjoyed it. No reservation policy. The BBQ restaurant next door was a plus. Bar Harbor KOA has sites on the water but is very expensive. In Southwest Harbor the "quiet side Smugglers Den has some good sized concrete pad sites and back ins. The Italian restaurant across the street is a favorite

We also stayed at Bar Harbor Campground. It's a nice place. The sites on the interior roads are wooded and were more private. The sites up the hill nearer the water were crowded.

Be aware that RV access is limited in Acadia NP. The roads were built for carriages and some roads are too tight for RV's.

We stayed at the KOA Oceanside in Bar Harbor July 2015. Beautiful location, clean bath houses, spacious sites and lots of activities for the whole family. They also have a snack bar where guests can enjoy a fresh caught lobster meal! If you aren't towing, the campground is on the Island Explorer bus route. Highly recommend a stay here!

Within 10 miles of historic Plymouth. 50 mile to Hyannis . Battleship Cove in Fall River, MA ( If you want more info, send me a message

I'll take a guess that you're coming up 81. Look at either of the Hershey campgrounds.

But Baltimore to Harrisburg / Hershey is only 2.5hours... so if you plan to stay in Baltimore then you wouldn't want to stop over in Hershey. If you want to look in between the two come out of Baltimore on Rt 70 and over to Rt 15 and stop over in Gettysburg. Lots to see there and lots of campgrounds to choose from. We're doing a Rally at Gettysburg Campground, but Drummer Boy is nice, Round Top is also nice.

15 then connects back into 81 / 83 in Harrisburg and you're back on your way.
