Maine has hundreds of campgrounds and RV parks — from camping communities near the beach and overlooking the ocean to remote parks in the woods on lakes and rivers with pristine quiet settings.

Whether you are looking to truly get away and camp in the real sense — rustic and remote — or you want a campground resort — general stores, activities for the kids, a pool, and services — many Maine campgrounds will suit your needs and desires for an overnight getaway, a week-long camping trip, or a seasonal stay.

Find out why Maine is a camper’s vacationland, whether you tow your own motorhome or RV, pitch a tent, or rent a cottage, park home, or cabin. Discover destinations that cater to every taste and budget.

About Campgrounds & RV Parks in Maine

Maine camping vacations are fun and carefree because you have all the services you need on-site, and the beauty of Vacationland. The state even has a vast collection of campgrounds, RV parks, and campsites.

Some are so nice that you can hardly call it “camping” — it’s more like glamping. These properties may offer waterfront locations, pool areas, private ponds, entertainment programs with live bands and comedians, and even water parks. Other camping destinations celebrate nature with lakeside cottages and ocean-view campsites.

Many Maine campgrounds and RV Parks provide full hook-up services for electricity (i.e. 30, 50, 100 amp service), as well as septic hookups, restrooms, laundry, and even entertainment. Family-oriented campgrounds have daytime camps and activities for kids.

While you’re on your Maine vacation, you’ll discover real Maine hospitality soon after arriving at any campground and RV site regardless of which region in Maine you choose stay. No matter where you pitch your tent, park your RV, or rent your cabin, the hardest part of camping in Maine is leaving.
