I loved this camping trip. Although I do actually camp and always hesitate to call sleeping at a KOA "camping," I couldn't have had a better experience. My tent-site was right by the water. At night I made a fire, toasted marshmallows, wrote in my journal, and fell asleep to the sound of loons. Had the best night's sleep I had had in a long time. Woke up to the sound of seals, made another reservation for that night, and explored Acadia National Park.
Perks from my stay: Very friendly staff, firewood and other supplies available on-site for a small fee, free pancake breakfast the Saturday morning I was there, short walk to the rest-rooms, and a beautiful spot for watching the sunset. I'm not sure I would have enjoyed my visit as much if the campground was more crowded, but on my second night I fell asleep to the salty sea-breeze blowing through my tent and the full moon shining on my face. Amazing.
