There are a lot of great places to visit in Maine: the coastal mountains of Acadia National Park, the beautiful beaches of Kennebunkport, or the cafés of Portland. But in most cases, you have to choose one to the exclusion of all those other great destinations. Fortunately, that’s not the case when you get an RV rental near Lake St. George Campground. Right in the center of Maine’s Midcoast Region, Lake St. George State Park is within driving distance of just about all of these attractions and many more.RV camping at Lake St. George Campground isn’t like what you’d find at most state park campground though. There are hot showers, dump stations, picnic tables, grills, a volleyball court and horseshoe pit, a playground for the kids to run off their excess energy, a camp store, and a couple of cafes. What it is missing though is hookups; you’ll still need to boondock it when camping with a rental motorhome at Lake St. George Campground (though there is a spigot for filling up drinking water bottles).More important than all those amenities though is the general atmosphere of the park; it’s carefree, relaxing, and filled with other campers who really appreciate nature. Ask around, and you won’t have any trouble finding someone to go on a hike with or rent some boats to explore the lake.

Lake St. George State Park provides numerous recreational opportunities, including swimming, birdwatching, fishing, kayaking/canoeing, and hiking. Start your outdoor adventures with a hike through the forest behind the campground. There are about five miles of trail concealed within the trees, but they’re all well-marked, so there’s little chance of getting lost in there. Then get out on the water, either by jumping right into Lake St. George or by paddling a kayak. Unlike most state parks in the area, Lake St. George has kayak and canoe rentals available on the shoreline, so you won’t need to spend time searching for one in a nearby town.The state park isn’t the only place to go for outdoor fun when you’re motorhome camping in the Midstate though. Head an hour's drive south to the Boothbay Harbor region, with its dozens of isolated coves and hidden beaches. From there you can go sea kayaking, sailing, scuba diving, or just watch for whales from the shore – it’s an ocean lover’s paradise.Few travelers book an RV in Waldo County without visiting Acadia National Park, only a 90-minute drive away. It’s the only national park in the northeast and has some truly fascinating natural wonders like a sandbar that creates a bridge from an island to the mainland but disappears whenever high tide rolls around. Adventurous hikers will love the park’s Precipice Trail, a strenuous scramble up a near-vertical wall that necessitates the use of iron handholds to ascend. But even if you’re not up for death-defying climbs, hiking Acadia’s coastal mountains is also a great way to take amazing sunset photos overlooking the Atlantic; climb up Cadillac Mountain for the best views.
The nearest town to Lake St. George State Park is Liberty, a tiny hamlet with little more than a few shops, a couple of cafés, and a craft brewery. But what it lacks in amenities it more than makes up for with its charm; it has a Main Street straight out of a Norman Rockwell painting. If you interested in brushing up on your Liberty history, check out the Davistown Museum and its collection of hand tools from Maine’s heyday as the U.S.’s maritime hub. It also houses some great exhibits focused on the area’s Native American tribes and the ecology of the Midstate region.However, you’ll probably need something more developed if you’re taking a trip into town with your RV rental. For more extensive amenities, you should visit the coastal towns of Rockport and Camden. The two communities are famous for their galleries and art studios, with many of Maine’s (and America’s) best artists flocking to the region to paint its idyllic landscapes and day-to-day life. One local gallery showcases some of the finest works depicting local scenery and is a great place to pick up a souvenir from your Midcoast travels.Given Rockport and Camden’s location on Route 1 (a popular New England road trip), they have no shortage of dining options; farm-to-table restaurants, fresh seafood, and exotic cuisines (Thai, Japanese, Spanish) are the norm here. Though no summer vacation to Maine is complete without eating a lobster roll, so be sure to pick one up from a seaside stall (the meat just tastes better with the salty fresh air) when you’re camping in an RV at Lake St. George State Park.
What type of RV should I choose?
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.
Do the RVs have bathrooms?
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.
