Meals are a big part of your camping plan and you want them to taste great, be easy to fix, and require little cleanup. Taking advantage of Maine’s many farm markets and orchards while you are here is a perfect way to enjoy fresh, tasty food right from your campsite.

During these months you can expect to see rhubarb, asparagus, radishes, peas, chives, and plenty of greens.
July to August
These months will be abundant with berries of any kind (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, etc.), plums, peaches, melons, beets, broccoli, carrots, celery, green beans, leeks, peppers, potatoes, summer squash, zucchini, and tomatoes
September to October
Fall bring lots of root vegetables such as winter squash, sweet potato, and turnips. You’ll also have access to lots of greens, cranberries, apples, pears, melons, Brussel sprouts, cauliflower, cukes, carrots, parsnips, scallions, and garlic.
It isn’t hard to eat well when you’re camping and it’s fun to shop the markets every couple of days or so to see what’s in season. We hope you enjoy your stay with us and take advantage of the fresh produce of the area when you are here.
