RE: Best lobster in Maine

An institution in Maine for lobster rolls (with an accompanying line of 25 - 50 yards) is RED'S EATS located in Wiscasset. As you descend the hill in downtown Wiscasset before you cross the river, it is found on the left coming from the south. It on Rte 1 a short distance before you leave Rte 1 to take a right for Boothbay Harbor. Enjoy Absolutely the place to go..1 1/2 lbs on a roll..nothing else...butter ,mayo and lettuce on the side...sold 11 ton of lobster and 3 ton of butter last year....for Lobster Roll this is the place Chuck Their Lobster rolls are good but there are other places in Maine that are just as good. Publicity brought Red's Eats to where they are today. As a Mainer who had my good share of lobster rolls, I can I can say the place is overrated.

RE: Best lobster in Maine

He never mentioned anything about lobster rolls !!!!! Beg to differ. Title is "Best Lobster in Maine". Then OP talks about best restaurants. Add them up and it's "where's the best restaurant to get lobster in Maine?". Note, however, OP does NOT specify how said lobster should be prepared! :B You're right...I didn't read the thread title but just what the OP wrote (Sorry)

RE: Best lobster in Maine

Funny how a thread is changing direction.....We're all discussing lobster rolls and the OP is just asking where to eat in the three towns he will be visiting.

RE: Best lobster in Maine

Don't waste your time or money on a lobster roll, those things suck. Ouf !!!......Quite a statement.....obviously, you didn't go to the right place for a lobster roll! Try again!! I don't think so. Give me the real thing, a whole lobster steamed. Still not a reason to say they suck !!!! One in a million will think that way.

RE: Best lobster in Maine

We are heading to Maine next month staying in Bar Harbor, Boothbay and Old Orchard Beach. Looking for best places to eat! Thanks, We live 30 minutes from OOB (Old Orchard Beach). "Joseph by the Sea" in the heart of OOB is a nice restaurant. For Lobster, Clams and Mussels...try Bayley's (eat on the deck overlooking the marsh). 20 minutes from OOB is Cape Elizabeth. There's a place called "The Lobster Shack). That place was spotlighted on the Food Channel. While there, go to Fort Williams (beautiful place to walk around on the rocky coast of Maine). Boothbay Harbor: One place comes to mind is Robinson Restaurant. We were there a month ago and ate very well. Bar Harbor: Any restaurants are great in the area. As for lobster, nothing beats a Lobster Pound. If you are nostalgic, go to Rte 66 restaurant. A lot of memorabilia of the 50s and 60s and of course it's mostly food from those eras.

RE: Schoodic Woods campground, Maine

drenjoey, Awesome pics, can't wait to get back up there. The Rereation.gov site says there "currently" no showers or laundry facilities,sounds like there may be at some point in the future, and, while your photo shows a Vault toilet, the site says there are flush toilets. Thanks for the pics. the vault toilet is actually for the hike and camp sites. There are nice bathrooms with flush toilets and sinks throughout the campground....but no showers nowhere !

RE: Schoodic Woods campground, Maine

WE'RE BACK We just came back from Acadia and Schoodic Woods Campground.... That campground is just beautiful. Loop B has water/electricy, and Loop A has electricity only. That being said, the bathrooms are nice (Everything is new).....but there are NO SHOWERS on the campground. Sites are huge and super clean with a picnic table and a big fire pit. Schoodic campground is 5 minutes from Winter Harbor. Quaint little town (not too many stores) but still has an IGA, Ice Cream place and a few restaurants. The Raven's Nest is a very good restaurant (A little pricey, but the food was great). Take a ride to Schoodic Point....you won't regret it. Bring your folding chairs or sit on the rocks and enjoy the views. If you plan to go to Bar Harbor (a little less than an hour away) you have three choices: 1- Take your car (good luck finding parking) 2- The shuttle bus from the campground (no cost....it's free) 3- Take a ferry from Winter Harbor ($24.00 return each adult)...45 minutes. As for Acadia NP on Mt Desert Island......your car or the shuttle. I forgot to mention: The shuttle will accommodate your bikes. I may have forgotten something.......but anyway, here is link to a few pics http://s449.photobucket.com/user/Drenjoey/library/Acadia?sort=9&page=1

Schoodic Woods campground, Maine

Hi Folks, We're on our way this morning to Schoodic Woods campground for three nights. This is a campground that opened last October, and is operated by Acadia NP. Acadia NP is divided in two. One part is on Desert Island, which people are familiar with, and the other part is on the mainland (an hour away) near Winter Harbor. We noticed there are not too many pictures of that campground online, or the surroundings We will take some pictures and post them on our return....so folks can have a better idea of Schoodic.:)

RE: Coastal Maine campground recommendations

Acadia NP is #9 out of the top 10 most visited NP's. Read the whole thread and maybe you will figure out the comments. Wow! I read the thread before your very first post.....Didn't need to read afterward...Your first post said what you think of Bar Harbor and Acadia!

RE: Coastal Maine campground recommendations

Bar Harbor/Acadia NP, ooooh you don't want to drive all that way, nothing to see up there, there has to be some place nicer, just saying. Nothing to see up there !!!!!!! You gotta be kidding! Acadia is one of the most visited NP in the United States: Camping, biking, hiking, sight seeing, whale watching, beach, beautiful Bar Harbor with all its little shops. Not to mention, it's a port of call for cruise ships (they wouldn't go there if there is nothing to see or do. Did you leave the campground to visit !......GEEZZZZZZZ !!

RE: Saying hello

W E L C O M E !!! As for us, we're on our third hybrid, and we don't see the day we will upgrade to something else. They make hybrid sooooooo easy to set up nowadays, and the fact of having two queen size beds is a big plus especially when we bring our grand kids with us. Start building memories and have fun Dre

RE: Do we need sway bars??

Brake controller is a law for trailer over 3000lbs here in Maine, and probably across the country' WD hitch is a big plus. As for the sway bar, it is incorporated with my Blue Ox Weight Distribution system. I didn't have sway bars with the previous campers and WD hitch I owned, and never felt the need for them

RE: What are the pitfalls of camping in a Hybrid?

For me, I would love to get to the campsite, drop the trailer, level it, put out the awning and slide out and be camping. It would be nice to remove that 30 minutes of setup time and just have the beds all made up and ready to sleep in. The main reason I would like this is for the time saving. It would be nice to do shorter camping trips without so much setup time. I don't know about other brands, but it takes us 5 minutes at the most to get those beds down and ready on a Rockwood Roo. Tent ends are sealed to the doors now (bungies or snaps are things of the past) and we use sleeping bags. It actually took us less time to get ready than my sister and brother-in-law with their fifth wheel !!

RE: 1st trip in our hybrid TT! Any advice, please?

Popup Gizmos, #1 Hybrid mod, along with Reflectix in the tent windows. 1- Sometimes Dan, I wonder if you're paid by Popup Gizmos to advertise for them....LOL !!!!! I agree that the gizmos are good for some people but I don't see the utility in Maine especially when the camping season is four months. I had two hybrids before this one.....never used the AC, and never got cold at night. 2- I don't think they are a mod.... it's more like an add-on. Still love you man !!!! Dre

RE: Borrowing our hybrid !!

He is in a loser of an position here. Stand and fight with the DW over not letting her daughter take the camper, or let them have it, knowing based on experience, he will have to get to their house and get it and it will be dirty and possibly something broken. I figure this is the only option. Have a non-confrontational conversation with your wife, and remind her (not accusatory) about the times the old camper was loaned and how it was always dirty and you had to always go get it. If that does not seem to sway her and she is determined to let them use it, yo uhave to figure out if it is worth the strife. That or cone to some agreement of a probationary period that the first time you have to go get it, or it is dirty or something broken, then no more loaning it out. At least on that premise the DW (although she could be mad at you) has no legitimate right to be upset because you gave them another chance. For the record, I am in the same boat. My DW opens mouth and speaks before she thinks (good intentions) and we often loan stuff that we shouldn't. I can see her loaning our Class A to her sister and that brood and not think a thing about it and when it came back nearly destroyed be complaining to me about it, but not say a word to her sister and then loan it again. My DW already told them I'm not interested in loaning the camper.....mostly because of the insurance. I found out the hybrid is only insured if it is pulled by a vehicle on the same insurance policy, and a driver on the same insurance policy.....that should solve the problem very quickly !

RE: Borrowing our hybrid !!

I'm the OP They did borrow our previous camper, and it always came back with something broken (minor but still)......and both times I had to go get it at their home.....and not cleaned. My DW still thinks it's ok to lend it to them.....Geezzzzzzzz!!!
