"Baxter State Park" Mount Katahdin Tip by Florida999
Mount Katahdin, Maine: 8 reviews and 11 photos
Even if you do not want to climb all the way to the summit of Katahdin, Baxter State Park is a very nice place to visit. I know a lot of people will probably disagree with me, but I think the way they run the park is great. No RVs, no paved roads, no modern conveniences other than a few porta potties. I love it ! Only real outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy this place, and the mass-tourist industry ( yikes, like at Yellowstone!) stays out for the most part. Even the numbers of regular vehicles are restricted and I made reservations way in advance to get a campsite. I hope it stays that way.
We did have a rather stinky truck on the way out from all the accumulated trash, but that's ok.....
