Aroostook Campground

Maine is unquestionably one of the best states for outdoor adventures, especially in the northern part, and while you're here, you'll want to begin your trip at Aroostook Campground (part of Aroostook State Park). This rustic family-friendly RV campground is also pet-friendly to dogs on leashes and has what you need to be comfortable during your stay. The park has restrooms with showers, both of which are ADA accessible; it has stations with drinking water, a playground for younger kids, and a boat launch granting you access to Echo Lake. While you're here, you can experience the park's natural heritage trail which has signs explaining the ecological and geological features you'll see along the trail.The RV campground is only minutes away from nearby Presque Isle where you can stock up on groceries and supplies, gas up your rental RV, and dine out if you're not in the mood for cooking. Presque Isle has museums, several urban parks, and a nature trail that follows the Aroostook River through the city and beyond. The park's location makes it an ideal place for visiting Quaggy Jo Mountain, hiking through the Northern Maine Woods, canoeing or kayaking the Allagash Wilderness Waterway, or taking the opportunity to cross the Canadian border to explore the provinces of Quebec and New Brunswick. From Aroostook Campground, you'll be able to go swimming, fishing, or bird watching, and in the winter, enjoy snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, and snowshoeing.

The Great Outdoors

Search for an RV in Aroostook County, and you can find an RV rental that is perfectly suited to camping out in the Maine wilderness. Start by taking your motorhome rental and heading for Baxter State Park, a nature preserve that resulted from the efforts of former state Governor Percival Baxter. The park has hundreds of miles of hiking trails which can be enjoyed year-round although you should check weather conditions before heading out if you're here during the fall or winter. One of the trails will take you to Katahdin Mountain, but it is a long and strenuous trail to the summit. There are other trails you can attempt and shorter, easier trails if your time is limited.Nahmakanta Public Reserved Land is a multi-use area providing opportunities for fishing and hunting, ATV and off-road vehicle use, hiking, and other activities. The park is comprised of sprawling forests and low mountains, and streams and brooks winding their way through narrow gorges. There's an ecological reserve that is roadless and designated for the protection of sensitive plant communities that can be easily damaged or destroyed by human traffic. You can hike the many trails within the park, one of which is part of the Appalachian Trail while observing the resident wildlife that includes moose, bear, and deer. In the winter, you can enjoy snowmobiling along established trails. The park is partially funded through the sale of timber resources.Deboullie Public Reserved Land is renowned for its exceptional fishing; you can fish for several varieties of trout plus landlocked salmon in the park's ponds, streams, and lakes. Deboullie is also an exceptional destination for hiking. There are miles of trails, some of which loop back on themselves, taking you past ice caves, spots in densely wooded areas where narrow shaded crevices hidden from the sun contain ice and snow year-round, as well as some plant life that is supported by the cooler conditions. If you follow the trail to the peak of Deboullie Mountain, you'll pass mountaintop blueberries in the summer on your way to a former fire tower that looks out over the surrounding area with a panoramic view.

Exploring The Area

Once you're done with the outdoors, it'll be time to head indoors and enjoy the culture that Maine has to offer. Caribou is a smallish town but is one of the larger communities in Aroostook County, with a charming atmosphere. It's a farming community, but you will have access to a historical and a natural history museum, a performing arts center, a nine-hole golf course and frisbee golf course, and more. One of the local commercial farms has a petting zoo, a carousel, and a miniature golf course; in the fall, it has a corn maze. The city's restaurant scene has numerous eateries, most of which are locally owned and operated; the food is mostly American style with a few alternative cuisines available, and most of the venues are moderately priced.Mars Hill is another smallish community with a friendly vibe and is a short distance from the Canadian border, making day trips into the province of New Brunswick a convenience. The town is named after nearby Mars Hill Mountain, which is the site of a winter skiing resort and a windmill project; the mountain also offers scenic views of the valley below and, on a clear day, offers views of Maine's largest mountain which is 85 miles away. The town has a small number of restaurants and several more within a short traveling distance; prices range from inexpensive to moderately priced.Great food, fantastic adventures, and spectacular scenery are what Northern Maine is all about, and by camping at Aroostook Campground, you can get the most out of your vacation.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
