backpacking or car camping in and around baxter state park

by bjpreston59 Online Now Aug 5, 2012 at 12:19 PM

My friend and I are planning a camping trip to maine next year. I backpacked in baxter state park 30 years ago and we stayed in lean-tos along the trail. I am wondering if you can plan a trip without a tent and reserve the lean-tos at 5 to 6 mile intervals? Also, any advise on good trails and campsites appreciated. When would be the best time to avoid crowds, but hopefully blackfies too? I'm thinking a 4 - 5 night loop if possible, or stay at one or two camps and do day hikes from there. We would be interested in easy to moderate hikes for the most part.

Thanks
