Bangor, Maine Campgrounds and RV Parks

You may know Bangor from the works of Stephen King, but this town is far from horrific. Boasting a thriving art scene with museums, galleries, theaters, and symphony orchestras, Bangor is an excellent place to relax and enjoy the beauty of New England. And with a massive Paul Bunyan statue enjoying pride of place on Main Street, you can bet Bangor is a place for those who love the outdoors. Nestled along the Penobscot River and laced with various walking trails and public parks, visitors can enjoy boating, hiking, biking, fishing, and swimming without ever having to leave the city. Consider having a picnic by a waterfall in Cascade Park, or take a relaxing walk along the lush bog in Bangor City Forest. Visitors also love Bangor’s golf courses, and adults may like to stop by the casino or the raceway for a thrilling interlude.

For those looking to make camp in the midst of Maine's spectacular natural scenery, there are several Bangor RV parks and campgrounds. RV parks in Bangor, Maine range from family friendly to catered-to-adults varieties and offer opportunities for paddle boating, canoeing, swimming, hayrides, and of course hiking. Outside of Bangor, along the Atlantic coast, Acadia National Park is close enough for a day trip and well worth a visit, sporting rocky beaches, woodlands, and the glacier-scoured Cadillac Mountain—the highest point on the East Coast. A bit closer at hand lies Sunkhaze Meadows National Wildlife Refuge. Just to the north of Bangor, Sunkhaze Meadows offers trails ranging from 1.3 to 3.5 miles, canoeing and kayaking, fishing, and bird watching.

Bangor provides excellent activities and attractions all year round, but summer is a particularly excellent time to visit, with The American Folk Festival taking place along the Penobscot River in August. Alternatively, if winter excursions are more your cup of tea, Bangor offers excellent cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, ice-skating, and even dog sledding, not to mention an annual performance of The Nutcracker by the Bangor Symphony Orchestra.
