Travel day: Ocean View CG, Wells, ME to Sunset Point CG, Lubec, ME
Distance: 266 miles
We had a really scary night of heavy rain and wind. However, when we got up, the rains had stopped and the sun was beginning to shine:o)) Good deal… we have a long ride to the Canadian border in Lubec, Maine.
Lubec is the ‘Easternmost’ town in the United States. We have been to Lubec before. Back in 2001, we stopped overnight when we drove the Pleasureway Van to Newfoundland. However, it was only an overnight stop and we wanted a chance to spend more time and explore the area!!
About 8:30am, we pulled out of the Ocean View Campground and headed north on I-95.
Before I continue with our trip north, I want to share my thoughts on campgrounds in Wells/Ogunquit area of Maine. First word is EXPENSIVE!! Second is CRAMPED!! Ocean View was one of the least expensive at $42 tax included per night for 30amp F/U. However, it can only accomodate about 3 large rigs and they could not be over 35ft. So be sure to ask questions and be specific if you plan to visit this area.
Now, back to our travels today...
Most of our trip will be on I-95 except for a short section from Portland, ME to Gardiner, ME on I-295. Taking I-295 saved about 10 miles and it is a good road also.
