Baxter State Park Travel Answers

backpacking or car camping in and around baxter state park  (1 Answer)

My friend and I are planning a camping trip to maine next year. I backpacked in baxter state park 30 years ago and we stayed in lean-tos along the trail. I am wondering if you can plan a trip without a tent and reserve the lean-tos at 5 to 6 mile intervals? Also, any advise on good trails and campsites appreciated. When would be the best time to avoid crowds, but hopefully blackfies too? I'm thinking a 4 - 5 night loop if possible, or stay at one or two camps and do day hikes from there. We would be interested in easy to moderate hikes for the most part.

We would lke to travel from Greenville to Baxter in July. Is this road passable with a car or do we need a 4wd. How long would it take to get to the park from Greenville. Any advice would be most appreciated.

Late arrival for camping

I am traveling over 9 hours to climb Mt. Katahdin, (The last mountain in the Appalachian Trail) for a one day excursion. Does anyone know the restrictions for camping near the park gate? Has anyone ever tried it?
