    Default Pitman Campground

    I was going thru some files of slides that I had scanned years ago. I came across one of a sign for Pitman Campground in Baxter State Park. This would probably have been taken around 1978. I googled and all I can find is a postcard ca. 1960. Does anybody know anything about Pitman Campground? Based on the sign it must have been close to Katahdin Stream.
    More walking, less talking.

    Old name for Katahdin Stream campground. A guy named Fred Pitman ran it and became a park ranger after Percy bought it and gave it to the state.
