When warm weather rolls around, most of us can’t wait to spend as much time as possible outside. And no summer is complete without a camping trip. Whether you have your own camp at the shores of a lake or you prefer the traditional tent and sleeping bag set-up, no place is better for the outdoors than Maine. One of my favorite things about camping here in Vacationland is the ability to choose almost any type of environment. Love the beach? We’ve got that! Prefer the mountains or lakes? We’ve got that, too! Here are a few spots in the state where you can become one with nature, no matter what type of outdoor fun you prefer. Get out there and show the black flies who’s boss! These are some of the best campgrounds in Maine.
