Lakeside camping in Maine guide

Overview

If calm waters on sparkling shores is your ideal destination, consider Maine lake camping. In the northernmost part of the state, visitors can escape to Baxter State Park near Mount Katahdin, where the remote wilderness lends itself to moose sightings. Also to the north, Moosehead Lake is a favorite lake camping spot, as the region offers boating, fishing, hiking, and beaches. Elsewhere, campers can stay in the Belgrade Lakes Region near Augusta, or consider a canoe-in tentsite in the Rangeley Lake region. Here, islands offer private camping sites perfect for a summer vacation. Want to enjoy the coast as well as the lakes? Head to Downeast Maine, where lake campsites sit near Bar Harbor in Acadia National Park. Southern Maine has many lakeside campsites as well, with endless outdoor activities at Sebago Lake State Park, not too far from Portland, Ogunquit, Kennebunk, Sanford, and York. With abundant waterways, Maine is the perfect place to camp on a lake, whether you're in an RV, a tent, or a cabin.
