Take Camping To A Whole New Level On These 10 Gorgeous Maine Islands
Camping in Maine during the summer is a wonderful perk of being in the best state in the USA! And, if the weather ever gets its act together (ahem – we’re ready to put our sweaters away, mother nature!) it’ll be time to pack that tent and sleeping bag for summer trips in the outdoors. But, this year, rather than staying close to home you might want to consider something new. Here are a few islands in Maine that you might not know you can camp on!
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
As with any camping you do, be sure to respect all the rules that are in place. Most areas do not allow any open fires without a permit and even then, you’ll need to follow certain rules for where they’re located. Many thanks to the Maine Coast Heritage Trust website from which we were able to pull some information. You can search their preserves by location or activity type if you click here.

In addition to the smell of ocean water in the air on rainy days in Portland, she loves puppies, photography, funny people, the Maine Red Claws, traveling, fresh tomatoes, Cambodia and filling out forms.
