One of the great things about being outdoors is having the unlimited space that you usually can't find in cities, which is why RV campgrounds with spacious sites are fantastic, giving you a place where you can stretch out and relax. Rangeley Lake Campground features sites that are roomy with space to spare. Better yet, the sites are all close to the lakeshore allowing you an unobstructed view of Saddleback Mountain.
The RV park has a picnic area and playground, plus a boat ramp enabling you to enjoy canoeing or kayaking, boating, and fishing on the lake (licenses may be required, so you should ask when making your reservation). It is a popular campground, so making reservations is wise; Rangeley is open for camping from early May to early October, but dates may be affected by local weather.
While you're here, you'll be able to enjoy swimming and hiking in the area, plus nature and wildlife observation (the park management asks that you observe the wildlife from a distance, and also stay on the groomed paths to protect the plants and ecosystems from being damaged). If you need supplies or a change of pace, the town of Kingfield is a short drive away; you'll find a library where you can while the time away if the weather decides not to cooperate, as well as banks and grocery stores, gas stations, and sporting equipment rentals.
Book an RV in Franklin County and consider making your first stop the Bigelow Preserve, which is spread from Flagstaff Lake to West Peak and includes a variety of ecosystems, such as beech-birch-maple and spruce-fir forests, shrub marshes, raised bogs, ridges, and cliffs. This complex balance of ecosystems makes for some amazing nature observation as you hike the tens of miles of trails or kayak or canoe the open waters. The preserve hosts numerous rare plant species including varieties of grasses, flowers, and ferns; there are resident wildlife within the preserve, but none are known to be rare or endangered.
Mt. Blue State Park is near the town of Weld and is open to the public year-round during daylight hours, although specific opening and closing times may vary with the seasons (you should check ahead to find out what these hours are). It's a popular destination, and in the summer, you can come here to go hiking and mountain biking, swimming and fishing, and picnicking. In the winter, it provides opportunities for cross-country skiing and snowmobiling, snowshoeing, and ice skating.
Mahoosuc Public Reserve Land is a multi-use preserve that provides timber resources (which help offset the cost of managing the land), habitat for rare plants and wildlife, and recreational opportunities for the public. If you decide to come hiking here, there are short scenic routes you can take that lead to gorges and waterfalls; the backcountry area is rugged and challenging for those who are up to it, and the backcountry trails lead to summit peaks with spectacular views (the backcountry is a part of the Appalachian Trail). The park has a scenic byway with several spots where you can pull over to appreciate the sights. Bring your RV rental with you, and you can combine a relaxing tour of the area with comfortable chairs and a hot meal.
While camping at Rangeley Lake Campground, there are quite a few attractions to check out around the area. There's a good deal of history in Phillips and it's reflected in the city's historical museum, antique stores, and Daggett Rock, a glacial deposit that is thousands of years old, about the size of a small house or building, and split down the middle (you can walk between the sections). You'll need to take a short hike to get to it; make sure you have good footwear and bug spray so you can picnic while you're there. A second museum focuses on trains and has several outdoor exhibits, one of them an operational steam engine which you can ride. The city's restaurant scene is small but sufficient, with several diners and a pizzeria in or near the city and at your disposal. One of the diners is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner; you can eat in or ask for takeout. The food isn't fancy but is well cooked and comes in large portions.
New Sharon is also a good place to stop for a bite to eat. One of the venues is a Mexican restaurant that prepares meals to order using local ingredients and has vegetarian options on its menu. Portions are large, and the prices are reasonable; all of their salsas are homemade, and there are several to choose from.
Spacious settings and an open sky are how every RV camping vacation should begin, followed by adventure and entertainment; this is what you can expect to find when you park your Rangeley motorhome rental at Rangeley Lake Campground.
