Summer camping at Katahdin Ironworks State Park

ORONO, Maine — Molly Joyce wrote in The Maine Campus about her adventure camping on Pleasant River in Katahdin Ironworks State Park with her friends last summer.

Joyce wrote in The Maine Campus, “On a beautiful Sunday morning, we packed up my friend’s SUV and headed out for one of our last summer adventures. The campsites run along the banks of the River within Katahdin Ironworks State Park, and are set back just far enough from the access road to the Gulf Hagas trailhead that you know they’re there, but can’t see them.”

She continued, “Our plan was to get to the campsite relatively early, unpack and then head out for a day hike of Gulf Hagas. But after reaching the campsite we all felt too settled to leave. One of the best parts about how ‘out there’ we were was that none of our phones had service. Time became obsolete, with no where to be and nothing to do, we were able to kick back, relax and just enjoy where we were.”
