There’s so much to do at Pinederosa Campground and even more in the area! Check out some of the exciting area attractions to keep you busy during your stay.
Ogunquit Beach and Wells Beach
Southern Maine’s premiere white sand beaches are set on a sandy peninsula with grassy dunes between the Atlantic Ocean and Ogunquit River. These beautiful beaches are just right for whale watching, learning to surf, or taking a cocktail cruise and they are only three miles away. Let’s go!
Walk the 1.25 mile paved cliff path in nearby Ogunquit to see the lighthouse, sailboats, and gorgeous ocean views. Plenty of benches to relax and take pictures. Bring home a lobster or two for dinner.
Mount ‘A’ is a 692 foot high ‘monadnock’ (very large stone hill) in the town of Cape Neddick. Just 11 miles from Pinederosa, the mountain’s unique coastal forest supports the highest diversity of animal and plant species in all of Maine. Perfect for hiking and biking. Some trails are open to ATVs and horseback riding.
Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge
The refuge was established to protect valuable salt marshes and estuaries for migratory birds. Visitors can connect with nature and enjoy wildlife viewing year-around.
Enhance your campsite dinners with fruits and veggies you pick yourself at Spiller Farm. Strawberries, raspberries, apples, tomatoes, and all your favorites. It’s fun, fresh, and delicious!
Ogunquit Museum of American Art
A showcase for American contemporary and modern art, from the late 1800s to the present. See the collected works of Marsden Hartley, Jacob Lawrence, Walt Kuhn and many others of national and international acclaim. Visit the seaside sculpture park, take a tour, and find that special ‘something’ at the gift shop.
The Ogunquit Playhouse is one of the last remaining summer theatres from the Straw Hat Circuit, also referred to as Summer Stock, still producing live musical theatre. The theatre is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Perkins Cove Drawbridge
The historic draw footbridge in nearby Perkins Cove may be the last of its kind in the United States. Operation of the drawbridge is the duty of the harbormaster, but if he is not on hand, any available fisherman can push the button to raise the bridge. Children sometime swarm the bridge, hoping to have the honor. Visit Perkins Cove Drawbridge for great views of the harbor, the ocean, and sail boats.
