Regions

our Maine camping experience may take you to
just one part of our state or through many. In
total, Maine is divided into eight major tourism
regions, each representing the various geographic
and cultural features we have to offer. Within the
CampMaine Guide, a color key differentiates regions
of the state. We also include an extensive description
for each of the eight regions.

JUST THE FACTS
Maine is the largest of the New England states, so large
in fact that the combined area of all of the rest of the
New England states is smaller than the total area of
Maine (35,385 sq. mi.). From bottom to top, the state
is 320 miles (around the distance from New York City
to Richmond, Virginia) and 210 miles at its widest
(though there's no road between the two points). Island hoppers have 3,000 or more offshore islands to
pick from. As the crow flies, our famous coastline is
just about 230 miles, but stretch Maine out end-toend for a 3,478-mile ride. (That's a cross-country trip
in some places.) Maine offers more than 28,000 bodies of water - 6,000 ponds and lakes over an acre in
size and 22,000 pools and ponds, totaling 2,270 sq.
mi. of inland water. And this doesn't include the large
number of vernal pools that we see each spring. Maine
has more than 32,000 miles of flowing water for fishing and paddling as well, and though we can't tell you
exactly how many we have, we can point you in the direction of some of our state's best and most beautiful

waterfalls (page 64). Inland Maine is one of the last remaining East Coast wilderness areas (the Allagash Wilderness Watershed), an ideal place to go where no one
will find you. Home to the Great North Woods - with
3.5 million of the total 17 million thickly wooded acres
of Maine and limited passable roads, it is considered
one of the least populated places - and perhaps most
serene - in the whole USA.

REGIONS OF MAINE
Moving counterclockwise from the state line in the
south, the eight regions of Maine include South Coast
Beaches (page 12), Portland * Freeport (page 30),
Western Lakes & Mountains (page 36), Maine's MidCoast & Islands (page 52), Kennebec Valley (page 60),
DownEast & Acadia (page 66), Katahdin * Moosehead
* Highlands (page 74), and Aroostook County (page
80).

FINDING YOUR OWN WAY
The CampMaine Guide is divided into these eight
regional designations to make it easy for you to find
the activities and campgrounds that will best accommodate your camping style. Grids will indicate the
services that are available at each of the CampMaine
member locations as well as information on when
member sites are open. Site availability information
and fees are available directly from our members.
