Katahdin Sign In early January, with temperatures dancing around zero, it’s hard to find any hint of the summer to come. But, if you look hard enough, the hints are there.

One sign of approaching warmer times is opening day for camping reservations at Maine’s Baxter State Park. This year, opening day for summer camping reservations at the home of Katahdin is January 14, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Reservations may be made in person only and only 20 percent of each campground may be reserved. There’s a two reservation limit per person or camp group.
