 Overview:

Lamoine State Park is one of the best-kept secrets about camping in the Acadia area. The oceanfront park, with panoramic views of Cadillac Mountain and Frenchman's Bay, provides easy access to Acadia National Park and is a welcome break from the crowds that visit the area in the summer.

And unlike the national park campgrounds (which are often booked solid for months) Lamoine has free hot showers, a godsend if you're tent camping.

Like all of Maine's state parks, Lamoine now accepts reservations online, making it a bit harder for locals to do spur of the moment camping. Still, half of the sites, including two oceanfront sites, cannot be reserved. We showed up a few years ago in July and were lucky to get a nicely wooded, private tent site away from the water. The next day, we waited until check-out time and scored an oceanfront site that had opened up. A local family camping next to us was busy steaming a huge pot of freshly dug clams.

Sites are large and heavily wooded. Some of the most private sites are suitable for tents or small popups. Oceanfront sites are large, but open.

Other amenities include a campers picnic area, boat launching ramp, saltwater fishing pier, children's playground, hot showers, and flush toilets.
