Hey everyone, I thought it would be different to share some experiences from a recent outing we did in our motorhome.
Over the years we’ve been in Maine a few times, but had never spent any significant vacation time there, so we decided to split our 10 days up and visit 3 different RV parks in North and East of Maine. We started our adventure at Arndt’s Aroostook River Lodge & Campground near Presque Isle, Maine. The town of Preque Isle is large enough to have a nice variety of restaurants and services and yet small enough to give that small town peace and quiet feeling. Arndt’s Aroostook River Lodge & Campground is a nice, clean, and well kept family campround and is well suited for families of all sizes and ages. Hiking, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, fishing, hunting, wildlife wtching are just some of the many outdoor activities available in Northern Maine. This area of Maine is also quite popular for ATV riding in the summer, and for the cold weather fans, lots of snowmobiling in the winter too. To me, probably the most unexpected suprise, was the active beaver ponds and lodges right on the Campground property. On almost any evening, the quiet observer can watch the beavers work and play in their own natural environment. We were also lucky to breifly spot a Black bear across the beaver pond one evening while we watched the beavers eat. These two beavers nibbled on some branches about twenty feet in front of us…. The ripples you see in the water around the beavers is from their chewing action on the branches. Pretty neat! There is one negative to the Maine woods near dark, the mosquitos are big and hungry, so be prepared.
As always, there is more to do and see than we have time and space to describe, so jump in your RV and go check out Northern Maine for yourself.
Stay tuned for Part 2 of our Maine vacation.
