With nearby ponds and nature trails galore, this campground offers the perfect base camp for families exploring Baxter State Park. Maine’s wilderness is nearly synonymous with Baxter State Park: you can’t rightly say you’ve explored the state’s wild areas without a trip to this unique park. The 200,000-acre area encompassing its own mountain range, including Katahdin, was a gift to the people of Maine from Percival P. Baxter, former state governor. While the state’s largest mountain is the park’s jewel, drawing climbers from far afield who summit the 5,269-foot peak, there are myriad family-friendly areas to explore below treeline.
