I'm considering going on a road trip up to Acadia for some hiking/camping in late august. Unfortunately, I am only starting the planning now and it seems that all of the camp grounds are already reserved.
Does anyone have any ideas regarding shelter for the days we are there besides hotels/motels? (We budgeted 1 night of hotel for our 5 day trip, and 2 days of camping in Acadia and 2 days in the backcountry of ME/NH/VT).
If it matters, for the first day, we wont be getting into Acadia until pretty late (9pm+) since we are driving in from NY. We'll hike the 2nd day and on the third day most likely do some water activities. The camping part is really just a cheap place to crash after a day of activities. I don't know how much 'real' camping activities like cooking over an open fire we will be doing.
btw. alitlte research shows that we can't do an overnight backpacking trip in acadia, any recommendations on places we CAN do overnight backpacking trips in ME/VT/NH/NY (for the latter 2 days of the trip).
