An article on Big Eddy Campground on the West Branch of the Penobscot River, 15 miles from the much more popular Baxter State Park. Most people, including those turned away from Baxter State Park when it is full, don't know the campground is open to the public. It was bought by the Wiscasset-based Chewonki Foundation in 2002 from the Pray family, who had been operating it as an RV park since 1967. Chewonki, best known for running wilderness camps for kids on the mid-coast, purchased the site as a base for teaching kayaking. So far, families, fishermen, and kayaking teenagers have co-existed nicely. With a history of the campground.
