We live in Maine and every year we take a week and go to Old Orchard. Our campground of choice has always been Hid'n Pines Family campground. It is situated about 1 1/2 mile from the beach and they do have a shuttle that will bring you there. Clean campground, friendly staff, pool and playground..... and next to a grocery store which is a big plus (food, beer, wine).
Old Orchard is also 15 minutes from South Portland (Shopping area and restaurants) and 30 minutes from Portland and the Old Port.
Welcome to Maine
If it's anything like the winter we just had, be prepare for many days below zero. This ain't gonna be a pleasant experience.
I doubt you will find a campground that will give you electricity through the winter. Most of them are close by the end of October. Seasonal sites run from May 15th to October 15th at an average cost of $3000.00.
If I were you, I would get in touch with The Texan who has family in the area and then rent a small cabin to get through the winter.
For that price you could buy a comparable TT and skip the upgrade process. Most folks only keep the hybrid for a season or two due to leaks and noise.
Please educate us about these "most folks" you know.
And have you owned a hybrid?
I think you've been a victim of misinformation.
I've been a member of Hybrid forums for over 9 years and currently belong to 6 different Hybrid forums and can say that your statement is untrue.
Based on your other forum posts, you're also against Dodge trucks,LT tires, Coachmen popups and Roo's.
Couldn't agree more Dan.
I don't know of any TT comparable to a HTT !!! :h
We're on our second one (Travelstar and Palomino) and absolutely no complaints.
I have a Dodge Ram and love it. If anything happen to it, I would get another one.:C
Let's go back to the OP topic, I think bbq-breath is just another one who is looking for attention!.......sad.
I'm a little tired of being discriminated against because I have a little RV. If I pay the same price as someone with a big rig, or want a premium spot that campground owners seem to want to save for big rigs, why can't I reserve the spot I want? When cg owners see that I have a little one, they just want to head me over to a little spot. I choose to have a small rig but I would like to also choose a premium spot to make my vacation complete. Is there a way around this problem?
I have the opposite frustration. Nothing like trying to get into a place where there are a lot of 35' and down sites available, and nothing for me and my 42' rig. If I reserve a smaller spot and cannot fit they will not move me to a larger one, tell me I did not reserve a size appropriate site.
Just my opinion, but the rule should work both ways, you reserve a large site and can fit in a smaller one, you should be turned away like I am.
I don't think this is the same situation. Steve B. rig does fit in a larger site, therefore he should have the right to reserve that site.
On the other hand, The way I read your comment is.... you reserve a small site knowing your 42' rig won't fit in, therefore they have the right to turn you away !
Most popular places in Maine:
Old Orchard Beach: A very popular destination in the summer and plenty of campgrounds to choose from. Six mile long sandy beach. While there, take an afternoon and go to Fort William in Cape Elizabeth..... Beautiful lighthouse, nice trail by the ocean, picnic area etc etc. Old Orchard is also less than 10 miles from Portland and it's Old Port and cobblestone street. Always something to do there.
Going north, you'll find three quaint towns: Camden, Boothbay Harbor and Bar Harbor. All three have a lot of little shops, restaurants and they are all situated by the ocean or a bay. If ever Camden is on your agenda, consider Camden Hills State Park Campground. Very woodsy and beautiful.
Bar Harbor is home of the most popular tourist place in Maine: Acadia National Park. The second most visited National Park in the USA. If you're an outdoor person, you could stay weeks there and always find something to do.
Finally, Baxter State Park..... and this is really if you're into nature and mountain (Mt Katadin). Not much there other than the park.
