Maine's State campsites filling up fast

MaineToday.com - Portland,ME,
Even with an impressive winter that seems reluctant to relinquish its hold, some people are making plans for the coming camping season.

Camping reservations at state parks have hit an all-time high for this time of year, according to the Maine Bureau of Parks and Lands.

After two months of taking reservations, the total is up by almost 300 to 4,511, compared to the 4,213 filed by this time last year. Some tourism experts speculate that more people in the region will travel shorter distances this summer to save fuel and money, at this time of high gasoline prices and a slow economy.

The reservations total is for Maine's 12 state parks with campsites — which stretch from Aroostook State Park in The County to Cobscook Bay Down East and Bradbury Mountain in Pownal. They reflect an increase in the number of nights reserved, so far clocking in at 21,084 nights, up almost 700 from last year at this time.
