Welcome to Tentrr in Downeast and Acadia

Downeast and Acadia in Maine offer some of the best camping in this beautiful wilderness state. With campsites that have views of the ocean, lakes, mountains, and more, there is plenty of Mother Nature to go around in this idyllic part of the country. And, if you want to venture into town, there’s a vibrant splash of local culture, too.

The term “Downeast” refers to the direction that ships used to sail to get here from Boston and New York: downwind and East. Ever since then, that’s been the name of this beautiful and rugged ocean shore landscape. The region runs from Penobscot Bay to the west to Passamaquoddy Bay in the east. Acadia refers to Acadia National Park (“Acadia” comes from the Greek word for “earthly paradise”).

Campers with a penchant for hiking will get a thrill from summiting Cadillac Mountain, the highest point in Acadia National Park, and the view from the peak of this 1,528 foot mountain will leave you breathless. But for a more strenuous climb, take the aptly-named Precipice Trail: only 1.3 miles, but the sheer cliffs on your sides will have you clinging to the iron rungs and ladders embedded in the rock.

There are plenty of lakes in the region to go canoeing, kayaking, or fishing, including the Grand Lakes region. For a taste of the history of this place, make a stop in the town of Meddybemps, settled in 1740 and once the site of a Passamaquoddy village. The town has a rich cultural heritage, and it lies beside Moosehorn National Wildlife Refuge.

Camping in Downeast and Acadia offers so much to do for the outdoorsperson to make this a must-stop on any trip to Maine.
