(And enjoy the rest of Baxter State Park while you are at it)
Is this the year you finally conquer the Knife’s Edge; that final climb on the Appalachian Trail? While peak bagging Katahdin is not for families with little ones it’s certainly possible for a few families to spend a week here together and for some adults and teens to peel off and summit on day hikes. Plus, with all the canoeing, hiking, and moose photo opps, they’ll never miss you.
Summiting Katahdin is a lifelong dream for a lot of people and campsites are limited, so you need to be on the ball to get a spot.
What To Do: Baxter State Park allows bookings 4 months in advance, and those days that open up each week fill up immediately. Our suggestion? Pick a week you’d like to be there this summer, count back four months, and set a calendar event for that day with this link to their reservation center.
