2018 Official Maine Camping Guide - 25
Hunting & Fishing
Maine's "Billboard Law" is
intended to preserve the
state's scenic resources, but it
affects the directional
information available to travelers. You'll probably
need to look harder to find your way. To avoid
confusion, we suggest the following:
* Get directions before you leave. Brochures and web
sites usually include directions, and campground
owners will be happy to tell you how to reach them.
* Be sure to carry a recent map.
Visitors have traditionally enjoyed the wealth of
hunting and fishing opportunities found in Maine.
Licenses can be obtained at Maine's Statewide
Information Centers and at campground stores in
locations where fishing and hunting are primary
activities. The Maine Department of Inland Fisheries
and Wildlife can provide answers to your questions and
will provide pamphlets containing official rules and
regulations as well as license fees. For more
information write to:

Borer are marching across the country with their eyes on
Maine's beautiful forests and woodlands. Buying
firewood where you burn it was not the brain child of the
Maine Campground Owners Association and the law was
not our idea but we strongly support the effort of the
Maine Forest Service to protect our states natural
Please support our effort to protect vacationland by not
moving firewood into Maine and not moving firewood
within Maine more than 50 miles. If you arrive with
firewood you may be asked to burn it all immediately.
This is a serious problem.
1. Don't give bugs a free ride to their next meal.
2. Do buy wood where you burn it and be part of
