Glamping is the ideal solution for those who long to get outdoors and back to nature without having to relinquish all their home comforts. There are many campgrounds in Maine which offer glamping in one form or another. Not all glamping accommodation is offered in tents – often you can enjoy your up-scale camping experience from the comfort of a basic cabin, trailer or even a replica settlers’ wagon. Some glamping experiences are pretty basic and you will need to do all your cooking on the campfire and use communal Bath-houses while other more extravagant options include luxuries like in-suite showers and toilets, air-conditioning, TV and full kitchens. It is up to you to choose your comfort level and get glamping.

We recommend that you call the attractions and restaurants ahead of your visit to confirm current opening times.
