ME: Pocket Parks Campground opens in Gouldsboro

GOULDSBORO, Maine — The Acadia East Campgrounds are only a couple of minutes walking distance from Route 1, but they seem much farther away.

“It feels a lot like Acadia back here, lots of granite,” says Tom Tash, co-founder and CEO of Pocket Parks, which opened its first location in Gouldsboro on June 27. “We were getting this place set up and saw rabbits, turkeys, even a fox.”
