Description: Small campground right on the water with gravel roads and grass sites. Very narrow sites so no space for the patio awning. Water/electric (50A) with honey wagon service for $10 or borrow their blue boy all you want. We stayed on site 9 next to T&D. They offer a reasonable monthly rate and it includes honey wagon service in the price. I used their very clean bathhouse for showers and their very clean laundry to wash clothes and had no problem lasting the week on our tanks. Quite windy here since there are no trees. Interesting to watch the tides change and stroll along the cobblestone shore at low tide. Verizon doesn’t work here since it is so close to Canada.
Trash and Recycle: Dumpster at the dump station near the office with a couple of bins for ME returnable cans and bottles.
Activities: Lubec is the eastern most town in the US so the sunrise is very early. Campobello Island, New Brunswick Canada is just across the FDR International Bridge and is in a different time zone. We drove over there a couple of times to check out the Roosevelt Summer Cottage at the International Park and to hike some of the trails there including timing the tide right to go to East Quoddy Head Light. We all enjoyed “Tea with Eleanor” at the Hubbard Cottage and the beautiful views from Liberty Point. On the US side, we all enjoyed time at Quoddy Head State Park, checking out the little town of Lubec, riding over to Eastport and finding Reversing Falls which was quite amazing. It takes a few hours of watching it to get the full effect. I joined T&D for hikes on Campobello Island, Quoddy Head State Park and nearby Klondike Mountain where we picked more blueberries for a delicious pie. I really liked the quiet here after the busy Bar Harbor area but the lack of phone and our internet makes longer stays out of the question. The constant wind got on my nerves after a while too.
