          I would guess they do not. This is a National Park, so they are fairly minimalistic about what they have. If you are flying in from Boston, you can stop in Freeport at LLBean's flagship store and get a tent from them. Good... More

          Just a question about camping here in general...I've read a few reviews on other sites from campers who were disappointed saying there was heavy fog while they were there even during July/August. We're planning a trip there in July but were concerned about this. I would think the rainy months (April, May) would be more prone to fog issues. Have those of you who visited in July experienced this? (I know there are no guarantees with camping weather, but just want to play the odds).
