Where in New England can I take my dad camping to see the Perseids?

When I was very young, my dad took me camping to see the Perseid meteors; it was one of the defining experiences of my life. Now I am grown and he is nearly old, and I would like to turn it around. Help me find a suitable mountaintop in New England to go camping with my dad; somewhere where we won't have to see anyone else. Details within. [more inside]

Hiking map of Baxter State Park and Mt. Katahdin

I'm having trouble finding a decent hiking map of Baxter State Park in Maine, and more specifically the area around Mt. Katahdin. The map on their website is all but useless. I'd like to be able to figure out where the parking lots are and how long and how tough the different trails are. I can't even tell where the peak or the Knife Edge are! I've tried to find books at my local library, but they've all been out. I know there's some decent maps at the visitor center, but it's a 9 hour drive to get there, and I want to plan my hike and figure out which campsite to reserve before I'm on the park grounds.
