Camping in Portland, Maine, is all about quaint New England charm mingled with ocean life and nature. Hiking and wildlife watching are bountiful north of the city at Steep Falls Wildlife Management Area. Healthy fishing spots, and both kayaking and boating push-off points exist at Sebago Lake, the largest body of freshwater within an hour’s drive of Portland. Those who wish to soak up ocean views and beach-side sunsets can head south to Old Orchard Beach and Higgins Beach, lined with soft white sands to walk or enjoy a picnic from. Pack that bug spray! Enjoy rustic, tent-only camping sites and bookable yurts dot exist a good distance from Portland, which means you can find some peace and quiet outside the city’s hustle and bustle.

If you opt for a tent, there are a few wonderful spots. We opted to set up near the campfire!
Energy overload.... but we had space for pup laps around the property!
the old lady decided sitting to watch the puppy was a better plan....

Portland was Maine's original capital city before Augusta grabbed it due to its proximity to the rest of the state.

The place is clean and secluded. There are lots of trees and bushes around.
Chilling with my best friend :)
He had a good time as well.
Having access to my car right out of my tent was a blessing on a rainy day.

Portland has been burned down several times during its history: twice by 17th-century Native Americans and once during a fireworks display.

Trav: We had such an amazing time! Better then we expected .. booking again for the fall!
Close easy picnic table that won't leave you far from the indoor kitchen area.
Upside down binoculars not included, but hey, if you want to use em the right way (or wrong way, why not) bring a pair for infinite bird watching opportunities.
A true wonderland for the young and old alike.
If you want to catch the river fog, wake with the sun after a cooler summer night.
The inside doesn't feel "tiny" or micro sized in any way.
