Middle Ground Campground, Third Machias Lake, Machias River Public Reserved Land

Matty and I explored the Machias River Public Reserved Land yesterday and today, traveling the length of the preserve before settling in to tent camp at the Middle Ground Campground on Third Machias Lake.   

This was a great trip.   We had the campground to ourselves, with no other people and no insects.  On the way through, we stopped at several of the other campgrounds, and with the exception of one RV, didn't see anyone.   The weather may have been a factor (partly cloudy with intermittent rain and nighttime temperatures dipping to 25 overnight).  Other than a few light sprinkles, the weather held and we were treated to a beautiful sunset and clear night.   

We woke at 3:30 am to an amazing dark sky filled with stars.
