Camping in Southern Maine is quite unique from camping in most other areas of the state. Many campgrounds and RV parks in Southern Maine feature playgrounds, pool areas, arcades, have grocery stores, cafes, cabin rentals and complimentary beach route trolleys to the Atlantic.
This is especially so for campgrounds closer to the coast of Southern Maine including beach towns like York / York Harbor, Wells, and Old Orchard Beach. Campgrounds and RV parks in these Southern Maine towns are popular destinations for those looking for a vacation in an area where families and friends enjoy a stress free zone, beautiful scenery and easy access to the beach and coast.
You can even Glamp in trendy decorator tents at glamping resorts like Sandy Pines and Hidden Pond in Kennbunkport. Or you can find rustic cmapgrounds with RV hook ups, cabins, and tent areas. Campgrounds in the Southern Maine Coast are small communities that have the secluded atmosphere away from bustling town centers while being within walking and biking distance from town, beaches, amusement parks and restaurants. For a guaranteed fun time, spend your camping vacation in Southern Maine!
