Baxter State Park

Baxter State Park

Dominated by the mile-high swoop of Mount Katahdin, this 200,00-acre backcountry playground is likely a bit wilder than what many envision when they hear “state park,” but the frontcountry campgrounds have tent sites, lean-tos, and cabins with few luxuries (pit toilets, no showers), but perks like outdoor fireplaces and $1 canoe rentals on the honor system.
