RE: Recommendations for a Fall trip to Maine

Thanks Fred, I'll make sure we stock up before we get to Schoodic. It's been very hot here in NC, 40+ days over 90 or something like that? I'm ready for fall. Fayetteville always seems to be the hottest spot in the state. Not much topography to channel breezes and not close enough to the coast to get the cooling effect of the water.

RE: Recommendations for a Fall trip to Maine

Thanks so much! I am especially grateful for the specific recommendations that have been given to me. I was able to get a campsite at Schoodic Woods this morning, and tomorrow at 10 am when the purchase option opens I am going to try and get a site at Blackwoods for two nights. After that we can begin to fill in the travel before and after Acadia. I think we will have 1-2 nights in coastal Maine before Acadia, so thanks for those recommendations Fred. Mike

RE: Recommendations for a Fall trip to Maine

Thank you Matt and Fred, this is very helpful. I’ll get busy making some reservations this week. Fred, you hit on a lot of our likes already. We really just enjoy interesting places we haven’t seen before and taking our time to explore. We also enjoy seeing waterfalls and lighthouses and it looks like Maine has plenty of both. Based on some reading, we were planning to spend at least one night at Schoodic point. I think we’ll be going throughFreeport, Bath and Rockland on Hwy 1 headed north so thanks for those tips. We enjoy maritime museums and there is have a really nice maritime museum in NC in Morehead City, near one of our favorite places to camp, Cape Lookout. Any suggestions for dispersed camping areas would be appreciated. Mike

Recommendations for a Fall trip to Maine

We are planning to camp at Acadia National Park for 2-3 nights during the first week of October. After that we have 7-10 days to explore the rest of Maine. We prefer National Forest type campgrounds or dispersed camping as often as possible. Every 3-4 nights we like to use a full service type campground (like a state park) to empty the tanks, fill up with water, etc. We will be traveling in our Ram 3500 with a Lance hard-sided camper. I‘ve been researching White Mountain National Forest already and I‘ve come across Maine Public Lands, which seem to me to be very similar to National Forests. Does anyone have any recommendations they‘d be willing to share? We will make reservations for Acadia as soon as the 60-day window opens, but for those that have travelled in Maine in October, do you recommend getting reservations where available? it doesn’t look like you can reserve spots at the Public Lands. Should we expect them to be full and look for mom and pop style campgrounds? We prefer to be as spontaneous as possible. Our goals for this trip are to see some beautiful Fall colors and as few other people as possible (after Acadia). Mike
