Trailer Camping Near Acadia National Park

Costal Acadia National Park was the first national park established east of the Mississippi River, and a great trip for trailer campers with an interest in history.

Maine doesn’t get many outdoor lovers’ mojo working, but the East Coast offers some gorgeous sites intertwined with American history.

This coastal national park is rich with human history spanning back 5,000 years, from indigenous people to waves of French and English settlers. The natural beauty and rich human history make this a wonderful Maine camping destination.

Campers visiting Maine can work off some of that clam chowder and crab cakes hiking Cadillac Mountain the tallest mountain along the East Coast. The mountain looks out over beautiful views of Porcupine Islands and Frenchman Bay and rises above the town of Bay Harbor. The Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse is another beautiful attraction with trails along side it that offer magnificent views.

Fishermen will find themselves at home in the cool ocean waters. Acadia has excellent fishing spots and a fishing permit is required for fresh water fishing, which is $14 for one day, $24 for three, and $37 for a week long permit.

Acadia National Park is also a great destination for leaf-peepers. Because of the location, the leaves turn early and vibrant under the cool air drifting down from Canada.

To find a nearby campground, visit Maine Campgrounds.
