We’re going to put some miles on this morning. We’re going Downeast to the best camping park in the state, to the Bold Coast trails in Cutler and to the Maine Wildlife Park in Gray.

Part 1: Bob travels Downeast to Cobscook Bay State Park, perhaps the best camping park in the state of Maine. The park’s Tom Harmon can’t disagree with that, and explains why.

Part 4:  The energetic fisher (along with the moose of course) is one of the most popular animals at the park. There are also lots of oppossum, woodchuck and even an albino raccoon. They all like to see Johnson cruise by in his golf cart.
