In yesterday’s AllCampgrounds, we started to explore the best campgrounds in Maine, a unique camping area that stands at the crossroads of Canada and the northeastern United States.

We’ve rustled up some awesome places for tent camping, so it’s time to forge ahead and talk about RV parks and campgrounds, camping RV resorts, and other topics near and dear to our friends who camp on wheels.

RV Camp Grounds around Maine

Orr’s Island Campground: Found on a “42-acre point of land” on the coast of Maine, Orr’s is a classic example of the kind of waterfront environment that really makes the camping scene in this state shine. There are bluff, water view, and non-view sites to choose from. Be aware that Orr’s is one of many local camp grounds that are entirely seasonal, so expect weekly minimum stays, and no open facilities in the winter. Even so, this means you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy and soak in the great scenery.

Searsport Shores: Voted “Best of the Best” by visitors for four consecutive years since 2007, Searsport Shores is a southern Maine camp ground that can help you find just about everything Maine has to offer, from its historic lighthouses to its delicious lobster. Welcoming both tent camping and RVs, Searsport’s unique blog provides an insight into ongoing life at the camp, with plenty of beautiful photographic illustrations. You’ll feel as if you’re there, and know just whether or not Searsport Shores is right for you.

Whispering Pines: Whispering Pines bills itself as the “#1 Lakeside Campground in New England” and has been in operation for over 100 years, making it a “grandfather” in terms of camping parks, especially private ones! Family-owned and run for a number of decades, it is a small and pristine park with about 50 sites on and around Toddy Pond. The use of rowboats and canoes is free to all campers, and your seventh night in any one visit is provided gratis courtesy of the warm and welcoming management.

Moorings Oceanfront RV Resort: With 30 or 50-amp hookups and full water at all campsites, and 44 sites to choose from, Moorings gives you access to a private beach and modern facilities for laundry, bathroom, dumping stations, and more. The famous Papa J’s seafood restaurant is located on the same property and extends a complimentary discount to Moorings guests. You also receive free wi-fi and cable television at every site.

Yonder Hill: A family-oriented RV camp park, Yonder Hill is open all year around. Yonder Hill can accommodate just about anyone, including the biggest and badest RVs around, providing full sewer and electric. A huge range of activities is available, centered around the many scenic byways that visitors have access to: you can hike, bike, go four-wheeling, or enjoy fishing or hunting grounds that are literally known state-wide for their abundant game. A recreation hall and outdoor pools round out the features.
