7/10/15. Sunset Point RV Park, Lubec, ME and Machias, ME

OH NO, I ACCIDENTALLY DELETED ALL OF MY PHOTOS OF THIS TRIP!  I had been struggling with importing photos from my digital camera to my iPad and lost them all! 


This is the campground closest to the cottage my mom is renting in Whiting, ME for the month of July. We stayed here several years ago.

Their claim to fame is being the Easternmost Campground in the U.S. with oceanfront RV and tent camping with spectacular views of Johnson Bay from every site!  The campground is one mile from Campobello Island and the FDR International Bridge, 5 miles from the West Quoddy Lighthouse, the easternmost point in the U.S., 50 miles from the Canadian border crossing in Calais, ME and 100 miles from Bar Harbor, ME

The sites are close and so narrow that we could not comfortably put up our awning. They actually discourage folks from putting up their awnings because the wind coming off the Bay can gust unexpectedly and do real damage to awnings.

The cost is $40 per night for W/E/Cable.  It is a small, quiet family-run campground.


Today we spent in Machias, ME.    Machias means "bad little falls" in a Native American language, and while the falls were steep, the water was not rushing down them quite as forcefully as we have seen it in other years.

Wild Blueberry Land is a place we often stop when we are in this area for all things blueberry!

We always try to hit the bridge in Machias to visit all the vendors to see what kind of treasures we can find.
