Nature lovers make their yearly pilgrimage to the enchanting state of Maine in time for the summer sun and often stay at Twin Rivers Campground on the edge of the Kennebec River.
A gorgeous riverfront hideaway with an abundance of green-leafed trees makes this campground a secluded spot to park your RV and get hooked up to electricity (30/50 amp), sewer, and water plus Wi-Fi and Cable-TV. Step out of your tent or motorhome onto a level, grassy site with the river on your doorstep for kayaking, boating, and fishing. Outdoor enthusiasts will be drawn to Twin Rivers where they can bring their own boat and embrace the beauty of this riverside wilderness.
A blue-water swimming pool, awesome kids playground, and an arcade offer hours of family fun while a camp store provides ice-cream and camping supplies. Restrooms, showers, and a paid laundry are tidy and well looked after, giving this riverside campground the tick of approval for a first-rate holiday haven.
There is an option to stay in a furnished wood cabin with a cute patio overlooking the river that is large enough to sleep three people, with a bathroom and a well-equipped kitchen. Linen and cooking utensils are included with a TV and fridge.
They let you bring your pets to Twin Rivers Campground but insist they stay on a leash and there are possibly breed restrictions. Doggy bags are accessible throughout the camp to encourage owners to pick up after their pets.
A two-mile drive takes you to Skowhegan, a town steeped in architectural and manufacturing history. A visit to the Flat Iron District highlights buildings that date back to the late 1800s while a glance at the Skowhegan History House Museum & Research Center takes you on a fascinating journey through old town records. Avid gardeners will be thrilled to walk around the Heirloom Gardens where plants that might have been seen in New England gardens around the 1800s grow happily in this modern century.
Holidaymakers who have come to walk the local trails can try the Debe Park Trail, a scenic and invigorating stroll by the river.
