Wilderness Edge Campground is a family-friendly campground located on Baxter State Park Rd./Millinocket Lake Rd., just north of Millinocket, Maine. We offer 32 RV Camping sites, 70 tent sites, 2 bunkhouses, and a tepee. Millinocket Lake Rd. leads to the South Entrance of Baxter State Park, making your access to the park quick and easy. Spending the night with us at Wilderness Edge means you are only a short distance from many of the popular canoeing and kayaking sites in the Katahdin region and about 20 minutes from a white water rafting expedition on the West Branch of the Penobscot River. The campground is owned and operated by Wendi Munson, who is originally from Friendship, ME and Marcel Langlois originally from Griswold, CT.

We take pride in our newly updated in-ground swimming pool, and new (2015) playground.

The Park offers over 200 miles of trails for hiking and back country trekking, and over 40 peaks and ridges for mountain climbing. Climbing Mt. Katahdin, Maine’s highest peak at 5,269 feet, via one of three trail heads is a 8-10 hour adventure for most people.
