2018 Official Maine Camping Guide - 89
Cruising through Maine

(at Calais), Maine's largest island
(Mount Desert), and the highest Atlantic coastal peak north of Rio de Janeiro
(Cadillac Mountain on Mount Desert
These are all very impressive, but still,
they are only written superlatives. Experience the marvel as you venture
along the 85-mile-long DownEast Sunrise Trail or the Schoodic Scenic Byway.
Allow the region's friendly nature to be
expressed through a local shop owner
in Ellsworth or Bar Harbor. Or simply
pause to ponder how man and nature
have worked together to construct
something so indescribably beautiful
as Acadia National Park.
Unless you're traveling off the beaten
path, US-1 and 1A will take you most
anywhere you need to get along the
coast. Rt. 9, or simply "The Airline,"
cuts across Hancock and Washington
counties on their way to Calais. The
communities of Lubec, Mars Hill, Eastport and Cadillac Mountain all bicker
over who is the first to see the sun
each morning, but no matter. From
Grand Lake Stream's unmatched sporting opportunities to the welcoming
candy-stripes of West Quoddy Light,
the Down East region is unmatched in
its beauty. And don't forget to drop in
on the Roosevelt's at Campobello.
