Post subject:  The Forks in the fall lodging Q

Looking at planning a vacation to the Forks either the first or second week of October to do some fishing. I have spent some time in the Forks rafting and fishing but never fishing in the fall. I assume the fishing is good based on some of the rumors I have heard. I have done a lot of fall fishing in other parts of Maine but I am looking to get away from the crowding. I am thinking that between Harris to the ball field and between the big eddy to Spencer rips I should be able to find some places to wet a line without having much concern. However where does one stay in the Forks in October if they are budget fishing? I am bouncing back and forth between hauling up my 20 ft camper or trying for a cabin tent, maybe someplace like Magic Falls on the Dead, any thoughts? I have rafted up until Columbus day but we always day tripped it.

15 mile stream is 39.00 a night and has a bar and restaurant onsite.

Northern Outdoors is in that area, too.

Last I knew, already set up platform tents with electricity, right on the river, were 22.00 weekday nights...bar, restaurant, heated pool, hot tube, sauna, etc. are just across the main road.

Up the road in Jackman, Sally Mountain Cabins is also pretty reasonable. There is also a B+B down in Caratunk (Sterling Inn?).

Or, if you are really adventurous, rent one of the rooms over the Marshall Inn. Last time I was there the sign read, "Rooms, $25, Bikers Welcome". :D

We didn't opt to stay, but my fishing partner (who shall remain nameless), did have a good time watching a barefoot girl in a bikini dance the tables while we ate a burger.
