Acadia National Park

Situated on the rugged coast of Maine, Acadia National Park is a stunning national treasure made possible by early 20th century visionaries who donated the lands so that future generations could enjoy nature at its finest.

Some must-see sights include the Park Loop Road, a 27-mile stretch offering unbelievable views of the shoreline, coastal forest, and mountain silhouettes. Visitors also frequent Cadillac Mountain, the tallest mountain along the East Coast of the U.S. at 1,530 feet. Explore the granite peaks shaped by glaciers during the ice age with gorgeous Maine foliage and wildlife that include moose, bear, whales and an abundance of sea birds.

Acadia National Park is only a few hours away from Wild Acres and Wagon Wheel in Old Orchard Beach or Saco/Old Orchard Beach KOA in Saco and is a day trip well worth the drive to get there.

Historic Boston

Rich with American heritage, the Boston area is chock full of nearly four centuries of history showcased in a number of landmarks that tell the tale of our early days as a nation; and all within a two-hour drive of the RV resorts and campgrounds included in our New England region. A great place to start adventure in Boston is with the Freedom Trail®, a 2.5-mile, red-lined route that leads you to 16 historically significant sights. Take a guided tour led by 18th-century costumed Freedom Trail Players® that starts at the Boston Common and make your way to featured sites like the Paul Revere House, Old North Church, and the Faneuil Hall Marketplace, a grouping of four buildings where historic figures like Samuel Adams and Jonathan Mayhew stood on their soapboxes, planting the seeds that would eventually lead to the American Revolution.

While you’re here, don’t forget to visit the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum and witness reenactments of the famous event that changed the course of our nation’s history forever! Enjoy historic interpreters, interactive exhibits, fully restored 18th century sailing vessels, historic artifacts and more.

The Regions of Cape Cod

Still one of the most popular vacation hot spots on the East Coast, the Cape Cod region consists of Cape Cod and the islands of Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket. This area is famous for its amazing scenic beauty of sandy beaches with gently rolling dunes, legendary seafood delights, world-class golfing, whale watching and so much more!

A 45-minute ferry ride takes you “on island” to Martha’s Vineyard, where you can take in the sights and visit its many harbor towns, lighthouses and beaches. Explore Oak Bluffs, where you can go for the brass ring at the Flying Horses, the oldest carousel in the world, or stop by the charming and brightly painted Gingerbread Cottages, which were collectively declared a Historic National Landmark back in 1978. You can also pay your respects to the gravesite of beloved comedian John Belushi, buried in Abel’s Hill Cemetery after his untimely death in 1982.

On Nantucket Island you can leave the modern world behind and enter a charming area that looks like it came straight out of a postcard. Built on the profits of the whale oil industry, Nantucket was once one of the richest places in America and is known for its signature unpainted cedar-shingled buildings and cobblestoned streets with high-end boutique shopping, restaurants, and steepled churches.

Stay at Peters Pond or Campers Haven, two premier RV resorts situated right on “mainland” Cape Cod, for a central location close to everything that makes this area such a desirable vacation destination!

Magical Mystic Country

Enjoy a quaint seaside escape in the area known as Mystic Country, a Connecticut gem that’s home to a host of treasures just minutes from our nautically-themed park at Seaport. Step back in time and experience 18th-century New England at Old Mystick Village and get up close and personal with wondrous sea creatures at the Mystic Aquarium. Climb on the Charles W. Morgan, the last wooden whaling ship and visit America’s foremost maritime museum with most extensive collection of boats in the U.S. at Mystic Seaport or stop by the only steam powered cider mill in the U.S. at B.F. Clyde’s Cider Mill.

This area is also known for its culinary delights with a bounty of some of the freshest seafood you’ll ever taste! Make sure you check out famous digs dishing out deliciousness like Mystic Pizza, made famous by the popular 1988 film titled after its namesake, or the birthplace of the hamburger at Louis’ Lunch in nearby New Haven.

At Ocean Park Beach you can enjoy public access to the Atlantic Ocean with a half-mile long boardwalk and a host of family oriented entertainment, festivals, volleyball tournaments, sporting events, and nightly entertainment during the summer months or try your luck at local casinos. This scenic area also has great shopping, art and culture, watersports, restaurants and much more!
