Anyone interested in a great camping location near Freeport I can highly recommend Recompence Campground.  Great place for waterfront camping 15 minutes from downtown Freeport.  Bow Street Market is a great grocery store too.  



Recompence Shore Campground 134 Burnett Road, Freeport, Maine 04032 (207) 865-9307

I camped with a rental pop up years ago (@1997ish) in Baxter State Park.  Make sure you review their web site.  They keep the park very primitive.  Narrow unpaved roads, limited facilities.  However it is a great place to dry camp.  Reservations in the summer is hard to get but I was there in October so the place was not too full.  We want to go back but they do not allow dogs in the park.  Our dog does not do well in a kennel.

What? No dogs in Baxter State Park? Do you know about other state parks in Maine?

We will be camping with our two dogs.

No, Baxter does not allow dogs and has no hookups. That is why we are thinking about the county park which is close to Baxter so you can do a day trip and leave your dog back at the county park.

Hmmmm.......this Maine State Park web site indicates dogs are allowed in Baxter. There is only one park listed as no dogs. Maybe the site is not up to date?

Baxter Web Site still states no pets in the park:  http://www.baxterstateparkauthority.com/rules/

They are a separate authority from the Maine State Parks:  http://www.baxterstateparkauthority.com/about/BSPauthority.htm

Ahh, got it. It's like Mackinac Island State Park here in Michigan.

What is the county park? The no pets is a big hurdle for me, I do not like leaving my chocolate lab alone all day.

We don't leave our dogs alone all day, either. We look for places we can take them with us, right down to restaurants and coffee shops.

That being said, we can leave them for a few hours to go places they aren't allowed. And sometimes we arrange for dog-sitting, sometimes swapping with other dog owners.

[/quote][p]The park is described a page back on this thread in a post dated July 6. The MWC campground allows dogs. But if you want to do a day trip to Baxter State Park, you will have to leave your dog behind. We could probably arrange a dog sitter to make the rounds of our campers to walk our pets while we are gone. Or maybe you can leave him/her in the car.[/p][p]

What dates are you thinking for next summer? We just got our 10.0 this September and along with my wife and little boy we have wanted to go to Maine. I think going with some other livinlite owners would be fun.

jammydee:

This thread was for the meetup in 2016 and has been superseded by one titled Meetup N. Maine in August 2017- Mattawamkeag Wilderness Park. We have settled on the weekend of August 5-6. PM me your email address if you plan to attend.
