    Folks, from what I can see there are only FOUR SITES left at the park for the weekend of 7/20-22, and they're 25 feet or less. If you want to join us, reserve today, before they're all gone! :)

    Currently there are still about a 1/2 dozen electric sites left for the weekend that would be PUP friendly, and still a good amount of no service sites in the park

    Where: Camden Hills State Park – Camden, Maine
    When: July 20-22, 2012 (Fri-Sun)
    Reservations: Maine Department of Conservation
    Sites for Maine residents are $15* - everyone else $25* per night
    (*=sites with power $10 extra per night)
    Coordinator(s): Need2Travel & NH-Popper

    Park Description:
    Camden Hills State Park signature location is the scenic vista high atop Mt. Battie where sweeping views of Camden, Penobscot Bay, and surrounding islands await. On a clear day, visitors can see Cadillac Mountain at Acadia National Park. Mt. Megunticook, the highest of the Camden Hills - and highest peak on the mainland - is a moderate climb by foot trail. Other hiking opportunities abound and are well-mapped.

    The park is located a few minutes north of Camden, a quintessential New England town featuring shops that are within walking distance to the working harbor. Harbor cruises, whale and puffin watches are available daily.

    Summer nights spent under the stars is a recipe for family fun. Campers who stay at the park's campground enjoy the comfort stations that are equipped with hot showers.

    Welcome Melanie Binnall! So glad you and your DH are able to join us [:)C]

    Note: There are now only 3 sites with power left for this weekend available.
    Unserviced sites are still in good supply (this too won't last forever - book early!)

    Four folks, one more to make it official, but if you want to join us and have power you better drop what you're doing and reserve right now, they're almost out of sites! This is a spectacular area you really must see to appreciate. Come join us for a fun time today. :)

    We have a huge site - my car is parked head-in on one end and the popup on the other with the table an fire-ring off away from both. We can have the 7/21 potluck here.

    Meanwhile we should start planning the Saturday potluck.

    We'll be making a seafood entree and a chocolate eclair cake.

    Have a great time everyone, we go to that area every year. I can see Mt. Battie from my kayak. Head southbound to Rt. 73 and stop at the best little store around for a Lobster Roll at the "Keag Store" in South Thomaston. Further down is Port Clyde.

    Say Hi to the Lobsters for me!

    Thanks to all who came out for this rally. It was a fun weekend that capped of a terrific 10 day trip for us! :) Loved the schooner cruise we took with Need2Travel on Wednesday night, sunset on the Maine coast was just gorgeous.

    Had a wonderful time, Camden is such great area - anyone thinking about going should! Other than the campground's WiFi not being reliable (barely usable, when it was available at all) the place was very nice in an ideal location - the bath rooms in the area we stayed were of the cleanest I've ever seen and the showers huge/hot and free! The area had so much to see and do, much free or low cost. Of course this trip had the bonus of getting to see some of my popup portal pals [:)C]

    Sorry I missed this one... for those who have been to this park, can you suggest which are the preferred sites? DW and I always tour the cg we go to to see if there are sites that would better suit us on a return visit. I figure we aren't the only ones??
