Below are some pictures from Acadia National Park, which is located on Mt. Desert Island. It's Downeast Maine at its best, with miles of rocky coastline and charming villages set on gorgeous harbors.
But first, here is our "A" RV TIP for new RVers:
TIP: When arriving at the campground, make sure you ASSESS your campsite before driving in. Check to make sure it is reasonably level and clear of debris. Also notice on which side your sewer, water and electrical hook-ups are, so that you can be sure to orient your RV properly for hooking up to utilities. There are a lot more tips about what to do when you get to the campground (and how to do it) in our book, Tips for New RVers: Catchin' the Dream.
Okay, now for glorious Acadia National Park!
