When camping at the family-owned Wassamki Springs Campground, you'll be only minutes away from Portland, Maine, and the land it occupies has been in the family for more than a century (it was originally a farm that was developed into a campground in 1968). Make this your RV camping destination, and you can choose from sunny or shaded sites, some of which are on the waterfront (the park has its own private lake). Each site also has a picnic table, fire grill, and metered propane gas. You'll have access to a camp store where you can find ice and firewood, plus there are restrooms with hot showers, laundry facilities, and other amenities. Camping at Wassamki Springs Campground is possible from early May to mid-October, and you can rent sites by the day, week, month, or seasonally.Once you've pulled in and set up, you can touch base with folks back home via the park's WiFi and prepare to start your explorations. Wassamki is near Sebago Lake (one of the largest lakes in Maine), Casco Bay, Old Orchard Beach, and other picturesque destinations. You can spend a day at some of the area's waterparks, take an ocean cruise, or go deep-sea fishing, just a few of the options you have. There are golf courses on hand, urban parks, museums, outdoor movie theaters and restaurants, pubs, and breweries for when it's time to refuel. Don't forget to take your rental RV for a spin on the local highways; it's one of the benefits and unique features of RV vacations.

Book an RV in Cumberland County, and you can begin your vacation by heading north from Standish to Steep Falls Wildlife Management Area, a multi-use refuge created from upland forests with wetlands spotted throughout. You are welcome to canoe here or enjoy fishing for cold and warm-water fish species; hunting is allowed for big and small game, but some smaller regions within Steep Falls are designated as sanctuaries where hunting and possession of firearms is not allowed. If you're hoping to observe the wildlife, you'll have an opportunity to see moose, deer, water birds, and eagles, and possibly other bird or mammal species.Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge was created in 1966 to provide a haven for migratory birds by protecting salt marshes and estuaries. The area consists of several varieties of habitat such as forested upland, barrier beach/dune, coastal meadows, tidal salt marsh, and rocky coast (it occupies tens of miles of coastline in York and Cumberland Counties). It is also nested between deciduous forest and boreal forest which, along with its coastline, have helped to create a population of plant and wildlife that is unique in the state of Maine. It's a multi-use park where you can canoe and kayak (only non-motorized boats are allowed), fish, and engage in photography and nature/wildlife observation. The refuge is open during daylight hours only.Crescent Beach State Park near Cape Elizabeth is a series of saltwater coves fronted by a sandy beach and backed by beach grass-studded sand dunes, rock ledges, and wooded areas. It's an ideal place for you to worship the sun, swim in warm waters with a light surf, or stroll the extended beach length. There are trails through the forest where you can hike and observe the resident plants and wildlife. You can fish in the bay, or enjoy a variety of water sports; in the winter, the rear of the area provides opportunities to cross-country ski underneath alternating snow-covered evergreen boughs and open sky.
You'll want to make certain you spend some time soaking up the local culture as well as the sunshine and fresh air, and you can achieve this by visiting Windham, which offers culture and history to accompany its activities and attractions. One of its iconic attractions is a covered bridge that handles local traffic and has a parking area nearby so you can stop and take pictures. The bridge is a replica of the original that was built in 1864, destroyed in 1973 but then rebuilt in 1976. There are several adventure tours you can join, one of which involves jet skis and another that offers an aerial park in the summer and snow tubing in the winter. If your appetite starts to get the better of you, Windham has a number of moderately priced to inexpensive places to eat, including steakhouses and pizzerias, family diners, and more.Westbrook is a suburb of Portland and has its own deep history, going back in the form of one settlement or another more than 200 years. If you have kids with you (or even if you don't), take a few minutes to visit a local farm where you can observe, pet, and feed the baby animals, then top it off with a stop at their on-site ice cream parlor serving homemade ice cream. There's a kid's center with even more activities, a family fun center with games and activities, and a riverwalk that follows the Westbrook River (if you feel like taking a self-guided walking tour). For the adults, there are breweries, chocolate shops, and a pavilion that hosts concerts and other events.This small section of Maine is where you'll experience friendliness and the chance to partake in the culture, history, and environment that most people only get to read about. Settle in with your camper rental at Wassamki Springs Campground, and get started on your explorations.
