Welcome to Tentrr Camping in Maine's Highlands

Camping in the Maine Highlands is an adventure in the majesty of Maine’s highest peak, longest river, and largest lake. With hundreds of thousands of acres of undeveloped land, more than 200 waterfalls, there is more than enough to do for the avid camper.

Camping begins with Mt Katahdin, at a height of 5,269 feet. Katahdin means “The Greatest Mountain” in the language of the Penobscot Native Americans. The mountain is criss-crossed in trails for hiking, biking and horseback riding, and it has been the subject of poems, paintings, and even a piano sonata.

Around Mt. Katahdin, and throughout the Maine Highlands, campers will be treated to a bevy of wildlife which includes black bear, deer, and moose. And the flora of the area includes the pine, spruce, fir, hemlock, beech, maple, birch, aspen and pincushion plant.

For rock climbers, Mount Kimeo State Park is a tempting target, with 700-foot cliffs on the eastern shore of Moosehead Lake. While there, you can take a steep but worthwhile hike to an old fire tower that watched over this forest with a breathtaking panorama view.

For a more family-friendly camping locale, Peaks-Kenney State Park has ten miles of trails--but they’re all gentle--plus sandy beaches, boating, kayaking, canoeing, swimming, and picnicking.

There’s a thriving local arts scene for campers who want to venture into town, including the Zillman Art Museum in Bangor, which includes works by Warhol, Lichtenstein, Hopper and Picasso. Theater lovers will adore the Penobscot Theatre Company at the Bangor Opera House.

Whatever reason draws you to camp in the Maine Highlands, be it the highest peaks or the beautiful paintings, or the inspiration to make paintings of your own, you’ll want to camp here again and again.
