2014 Calendar of Events

A Unique Four-Season Camping Experience

Welcome to the Summer of Fun!

Besides being a beautiful place to visit, Katahdin Shadows Campground features many themed weekends throughout the summer, such as Aloha Weekend, Halloween Weekend, Christmas Weekend, and NASCAR Weekend.

You don't have to just visit on a special weekend though—every weekend is special here. Some events take place every weekend, such as:

"Violette's Grill" is open from time to time, and serves items such as hamburgers, hotdogs, hot meatball sandwiches, sausage grinders, french fries, onion rings, doughboys, and soda.

Check the lobby bulletin board each weekend for extra activities.

Click on any dark-blue date on the calendar to the right to jump to the activities for that weekend.
