I first visited this state park in August, and, thanks to a large family group from "away" who occupied a number of campsites, it proved to be the camping trip from hell. I was not the only one who thought so---at least half the campers there complained about these people who yelled and screamed all day and half the night. The rangers tried to quiet them down, but they just mocked them, calling them "Ranger Rick" and laughing at them. Finally, on the fourth night, someone must have read them the riot act because they quieted down---until the group camping next to me (lucky me) came back to their sight at midnight and proceeded to wash their dirty dishes. I left the next morning (a day earlier than I had planned). However, I really love this area of Maine, which is amazingly beautiful, so I decided to give the park another try two weeks later. I mean, what were the changes of this group being there after Labor Day? Luckily, they weren't, and my second experience was completely different from my first. It was very quiet all week, and all I heard was the call of loons and the wind in the trees. The park itself is very nice. Large, well spaced sites, and the lake is lovely. The bathrooms and showers are clean and well maintained. There is a large block of restrooms that contain toilet, sink, and shower all in one room, which I like. My only complaint, and it is a small one, is that, because there were not too many campers in the park, the staff shut down about half of these restrooms one morning, causing a long wait. When it was brought to their attention, however, they quickly opened up more, so it was dealt with in a satisfactory manner. I am glad I gave Rangeley another chance, and I plan to return again next year. However, if I see a sign in front of a campsite saying a certain family from out of state is there, I will turn around and go home. We camped at Rangeley Lakes State Park in a Tent Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

There are many restaurants in Rangeley, as well an ice cream shop. There is an IGA grocery store and several gas stations in town. The town park is very nice, also.

Nice state park. Good spacing between sites. Getting in is a problem for big rigs. The entrance to the sites are often quite narrow (branches scraped both sides of my RV getting in). The access road into the park is not kept up for RVs. Several branches rubbing the top of the RV. We camped at Rangeley Lakes State Park in a Motorhome.

Good, separated sites. Woodsy. Quiet. A bit too noisy kid and mutt friendly for my taste. Good showers. We camped at Rangeley Lakes State Park in a Motorhome.

Rangeley Lake State Park is located in the western part of the state on the Rangeley Scenic Byway. The Appalachian Trail crosses near the park in two spots. Beautiful drive up 17 or 4 to get to the park. Many small lakes in the region when driving these routes. We had never camped in this campground before – one of the most popular state parks in Maine. Reservations are a must in the summer and the park closes down at the end of September, but one should check the closing dates of all Maine State Parks because they seem to change yearly. After Sept 13th this year no reservations were taken for the Maine State Parks and the price drops. It’s $10 then for a Maine resident and almost $20 for an out of stater. No hookups of any kind but the sites are mostly private, some on the water with a short walk to the lake where you can put in a canoe or kayak. Only 50 sites, but there are three restrooms with showers. One of the restrooms is brand new with individual family showers with toilets that are huge. Nice park and only about 12 campers a night during the week in September with more coming in on the weekend. There is a playground area, swimming area, ball area and boat dock in the park as well as hiking trails all over the area. Float planes are popular up here flying in on the lake and fisherman are all over the place. Kayaking on the lake was beautiful looking up at the mountains and the sunsets. This park is on a huge canoe trail that goes all the way up to Fort Kent over 300 miles long. Some kayaks pull up for the night in the campground and then just pack up and leave first thing in the morning. The lake is known for its landlocked salmon and trout fishing but there are areas just for “catch and release”. In the morning we heard the moose calls come across the lake and from the nearby woods. There are also coyotes, bear, deer, birds, and plenty of other animals that you might find in the north woods. A very peaceful campground with campgfires going every night. It did get down to 34 degrees one night but it was not bad the other days have been in the 60’s. We enjoyed our drive up to here and have been biking, kayaking, reading and enjoying walks and meeting other campers. The drive around the lake is one of four Maine “must-see” scenic drives and the little towns are cute and ski towns for Saddleback and Sugarloaf mountains. At night our campfires have felt nice and warm and the stars at night – it almost feels like you can put your hand out and touch them. So clear and bright. Great place to camp and we had cell service the whole time! We camped at Rangeley Lakes State Park in a Motorhome.
