Welcome to Tentrr Camping in Greater Portland, Maine

Portland is known as one of the most livable cities and one of the most eco-friendly cities, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that it’s not hard to find great camping in Greater Portland. You don’t need to travel far out of the city at all to hit campgrounds with fun for all ages and interests.

The first place to stop is a mere 25 miles from downtown Portland, Oxbow Regional Park. Located in the scenic Sandy River Gorge, Oxbow Regional Park is a great place for campers (there are more than 50 campsites) plus swimming, kayaking, river rafting and just floating on the serene waters. In the fall the river is jumping with spawning salmon returning home.

34 miles west of Portland is L.L. Stub Stewart State Park, which is a haven for the adventurous camper: this park is all about primitive camping and getting out onto the hiking and biking trails. If you’re in the mood for something a little less intense, take the Banks-Veronia Trail, a paved 21-mile trail crossing historic wooden bridges.

And of course, no camping trip to Greater Portland would be complete without making the trek to Mt Hood, 60 miles east of the city. For anglers, try your hand at the eager trout biting at Trillium Lake, while mountain bikers will get their thrills on the Trillium Bike Trail, which ranges from 24” to 6’ wide and crosses streams and climbs hills. Lost Lake Campground is 3000 feet up the mountain, and there’s a resort store at the campground where you can rent canoes and fishing boats. And the stargazing is a must.

It doesn’t take much to get out of Portland and into the wilderness, but with all the amenities you would hope for well-maintained camping facilities. You owe it to yourself to camp in Greater Portland.
