Hi friends! As promised, I’m sharing our road trip to Maine with you. For starters, we have a Keystone Alpine fifth wheel. It’s almost 43 feet long, so let’s just say it was an adventurous trip.
I always get asked if I like traveling in our R.V., and the answer is yes! I have all my “things” with me, including as many shoes as I want to take.
With that being said, rving is not always glamorous. Nothing goes exactly as planned, and we always like to be somewhere with full hookups because we don’t have a generator. This means we want electricity, water, and sewer.
I also learned a lot on this trip about the Maine area, and when we go back, there are more places I would like to visit.
For those of you who camp, I’ll tell you the campgrounds we stayed in and if I would stay again.
Here is our itinerary:
Day 1 Camped in West Virginia.
Stayed at a Flatwoods KOA Journey Campground. Perfect for an overnight stay.
Day 2 Camped in Pennsylvania.
Stayed at Bellefonte/State College KOA Holiday Campground. Nice campground! We got there early enough to do some sightseeing and went to Talleyrand Park. It was beautiful!
Day 3 Camped in New York
Stayed at Crazy Acres Campground. This campground was too far from the interstate, and I didn’t like it. It was junky, and I wouldn’t recommend it. It had sites for a big R.V., which is why I chose it.
We did get in a quick bike ride, and we visited the downtown area of Oneonta and ate at Tino’s pizza. It was delicious!
Day 4 Maine
We finally made it to Maine! (Portland). We stayed at Powder Horn Family Camping Resort, and I loved this campground. We will stay there again if we visit Portland.
We ate dinner at The Porthole. It’s casual and fun with some live music.
We went to Portland Head Lighthouse for sunrise. This was the highlight of our trip! Beautiful with few people there. I highly recommend going here!
We ate dinner at Scales restaurant. We loved this restaurant, the food was amazing, and the atmosphere was perfect. You need to make reservations several weeks in advance unless you want to eat at 9:30 at night.
Traveled to West Bay Acadia R.V. Campground. We stayed at this campground for six nights, and we loved it. The only downside was that it took us almost an hour to get to some parts of Acadia National Park, so we drove a lot.
Went to Acadia National Park and drove the Park Loop Road.
After driving through the park, we headed to Mount Desert Island (MDI). We visited Bass Harbor Lighthouse and ate at Midi Lobster Co. This Midi Lobster Co. is a small local place. Very casual outside dining, but very fresh seafood.
We loved visiting this lighthouse and felt it was worth seeing. It wasn’t overly crowded, and it was a beautiful area.
Went to Bar Harbor and ate at Stewman’s Lobster Pound. We had a great time visiting Bar Harbor!
We stayed at our campground and did some laundry on this day. We went to Jordan Pond House for dinner, which was so good. This is where we tried the popovers, and they are delicious!
We hiked the Beehive trail at Acadia National Park. If you don’t like heights and struggle with vertical climbing, this trail is not for you!
We, of course, documented it with a selfie.
We rode our bikes on a trail in Acadia National Park and ate at a local restaurant on our way home (I can’t remember the name).
Sunrise on Cadillac Mountain. This was beautiful, and I’m so glad we went. You need reservations which you can get on the Acadia website.
While we loved visiting Cadillac Mountain, we both liked the Portland Head Lighthouse sunrise better. It was much more private with fewer people. Both are worth going to!
After we watched the sunrise, we headed to Jeannie’s Great Maine Breakfast which was so good!
We traveled to Freeport and stayed at Freeport/Durham KOA Holiday Campground. Went to L.L. Bean Flagship Store in Freeport, Maine.
We only stayed one night, but I would have liked to have visited for a little longer. The town is so cute!
We headed home! We drove back in 2 1/2 days which is challenging in an R.V.
Places I want to visit when we go back:
Beauty For the Heart— God did this so that they would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from any one of us. Acts 17:27
Truth: God is revealed in creation and is close to every one of us. God is the creator, not the creation. We don’t worship creation but the One who created it.
How does God reveal himself to you? Look for Him today!
Deeper Study: Read Acts 17:16-34
Let your beauty shine from the inside out today!
