It’s summer in Maine and what many Mainer’s like to do is to go camping. It’s great to get back to nature, do some hiking, biking and fishing all while being house in a nylon tent. Cooking on the campfire and relaxing with friends and family is so nice. There are tons of really large, well known campgrounds in our area, but that’s not what we are going to talk about today. Here’s a few off the beaten path and not so well known campgrounds for you to explore. As a fun treat, we will be giving away a $100 gift card to LL Bean so you can pick up the essentials before you head out to your favorite campsite. See baileypate.com to learn how to enter to win!!
