A month after she donated 87,000 acres in northern Penobscot County to the National Park Service to create Katahdin Woods and Waters National Monument, philanthropist Roxanne Quimby has bought an oceanside campground near Acadia National Park that she plans to reopen, according to an article on BangorDailyNews.com.
Last week, the Burt’s Bees founder acquired the 113-acre former Ocean Wood Campground in Gouldsboro, Maine, for an undisclosed price. The bank-owned property was auctioned online by Tranzon Auction Properties.
Once the campground is reopened, Quimby said, “I think it will take its place as one of the beautiful landscapes of the Schoodic Peninsula. Additionally, it will provide extra camping spots when Schoodic Woods Campground in [Acadia National Park] is filled to capacity, as it was many nights this past summer.”
