Big thanks to longtime Ocean Wood camper Nancy Ragusa for this update on one of the state’s best private campgrounds for the non-humongo RV set. Although the oceanfront campground was auctioned, the lawyer who purchased it is allowing Mike Brunton to run it this summer. Mike plans to begin taking reservations April 28 for the 2009 season.
It is for sale, and of course such a spectacular chunk of real estate so close to the Schoodic section of Acadia National Park will command more than chump change. “If we can fill up the campground with a prosperous summer, perhaps the new owner will be more open to keeping it and enjoying if for what it is,” Nancy dreams.
She also notes that the new owner might be willing to sell it to a land trust. Wouldn’t that be a nice solution?
In the meantime, if you’re a camping fan with a tent or a mini, reserve now. You won’t be disappointed.
