    Just got back from 2 nights camping at Cobscook Bay State Park in Denneysville, ME. What a beautiful spot! The campground was very quiet, and the water views are to die for. I highly recommend sights 5 or 7 if you can get them - right on the water and quite level. Most of the sites in the "mobile" area are pull-thru, which is convenient. The facilities aren't anything to write home about (only 1 shower house and lots of "pit" toilets), but they were in reasonably clean condition. Most of the sites are very private, so if you're looking for lots of company, this isn't the spot for you! We spent one day over at Campobello (don't forget your passport), and just generally enjoyed the beautiful location and the quiet. No reliable cell coverage anywhere nearby, either! I recommend this place to those who like peace and quiet and who don't need a lot of entertainment.

    decent sites at Cobscook. Most are on the water - with crazy tides. The mosquitoes were bad but keeping a campfire going helped a lot. The newly 2 yr old did pretty good... about 5 mins of ignoring her in the tent at night and she climbed into her sleeping bag (first time in a sleeping bag... or keeping covers on) and slept most of the night.

    The nights were cold - we were there in early-mid June - but we were fine with 50 degree sleeping bags and a blanket

    Our girls (ages 6 and 2) had a great time digging in dirt, "chopping" wood, riding bikes and just exploring

    I tent camped there quite a few years ago - I think it was July or August of 2000. We got a site right on the water (I think site 29) which was gorgeous. Yes, the mosquitos were terrible at that time. We came without a screen room and we had to take a quick drive down to the LLB outlet in Portland ME to buy one just so we could cook outside. I would go there again in a heartbeat - especially in a PUP.
    I found a photo of our campsite, so I scanned it in, below. cobscookbaycamp.jpg
