Our summer vacation to Maine

We just returned from 7 days traveling with our TTrailer. We drove from NY to Wells Maine and stayed at a campground called Gregoires. We were 5 minutes from the beach, a huge site and great people. We stayed there 1 night and headed to our destination , "searsport shores" campground in Searsport Maine. About 5 hours from the first campground. This campground is expensive, $81.00 a night for platinum site which includes a deck overlooking the ocean, private beach and free pump out service. A few negatives... they say free interneet..ahhahah. When you get there, they will tell you, "internet is spotty, at best." Try none all week. They do not have cable but we got 2 digital channels perfect with our antenna. No real activities for kids there. Mostly bech stuff with 2 marine biology students on staff. They had crafts but they were too advanced, even for my 2 teen boys. We stayed there 4 nights. It was close to Camden, Belfast, Rockport and a few other places we wanted to see. Beautiful sunrise over the ocean, watched the seals playing every morning, hunted for clams and crabs on the beach. Cooked lobster over our fire pit and ate them on the beach. Hated to leave on Monday. Drove 5 hours to the best campground we have ever stayed at. "Boston Minuteman campground" in Littleton Mass. It was beautiful. Sites were level and every site is surrounded by these huge rocks to show bounderies. The firepits are like fireplaces, built out of more large rocks, surrounded on 3 sides. They upgraded us to sewer and cable and there is perfect internet at every site. We would reccommend this campground highly!!!
Drove back to NY the next day. Would have added another night but the weather got bad so we wanted to beat it home.
It was our first camping trip over 50 miles from home. This one was over 1000 miles treveledwith no GPS, no cell phones. Old fashioned paper maps...did not get lost, misplaced or have any mishaps. My husband did an amazing job through pretty heavy traffic. We are so ready to do it again. Staying in the trailer for more then 3 nights was so nice. I could spend the summer traveling.

Here are some pics of the trip.

Sounds like a great trip. I like no cell service, no internet and using old fashion maps!

I love the coast of Maine.
Great folks too.
I rented a B&B one time in the walkout of like a 2 million dollar home on the coast.
When me and my wife called ahead, the lady was in the hospital after breaking her shoulder on her bike.'
The suite was open, was told to enjoy her deck and grounds and leave the money and keys under the microwave.

Have to love Mainers :-)
