Aah . Near the Boothbay Railway. We were down there last month. I have driven by there about 100 times. Being a former tent camper never been in. It seems OK if rather open.
Things to do in the area that are not hyped about are the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens. Oven Mouth Preserve. We sometimes run from inland to take a whale watch just to get cool, when the temps reach 90, but those are the other two things we relative locals enjoy all year round.
PS. take the shuttle bus. Its worth it. June is not quite the high season but Boothbay Harbor parking is limited. The grocery store is in Boothbay so that is closer and its just a strip mall with no parking issues.
I recommend if you can go back through Wiscasset and down Rt 127 to Five Islands Lobster Pound. Bring your own booze.(they are not licensed but byob is fine). Do not take the trailer there, otherwise it will be permanently installed. There is no turnaround.
