This campground was one of the better we've stayed at. They are dog friendly and it connects with many hiking trails, including the one that leads to the summit of Cadillac Mountain. You do need to buy your wood offsite (but there is plenty available for cheap in little lean-tos along the road) and showers are offsite as well. But... More

I've been tent camping my entire life, from trips with my dad, to outings with the Boy Scouts, to more recently - camping with my own children. I've been to more than a few campgrounds in my day. I've camped in backwood locations, open field areas, beaches, and a variety of state parks/forests. This is, without a doubt, the single... More

There isn't much to say other than, this place is amazing! It's worth visiting, there's no doubt about it. I went for just one day, but I'm already planning my next trip. It's worth it, I recommend it to anyone who is looking o have a day out of town to wild nature and stunning views.

Campground is big, enough for two 4-persona tent. Great utility, restroom and water is close to the camping site. Easy to get firewood, sold for 3 bucks on roadside. It's definitely a great place for family camping

Beautiful campground, not too far from the ocean, encased by tall birch trees. The "black woods" do offer thorough shade to all campsites. WARNING: As we entered the campground, we had to pay an extra $20 "vehicle fee," which surprised us (probably because it was mentioned in the fine print that we ignored when making our campsite reservation) - so...

An absolute must to do to really experience camping in Maine! From the exceptional welcome from the Rangers at check in, which included a biscuit of our two dogs, to the free daily armload of firewood and the great buses that cost NOTHING but would take you almost anywhere, there was very little downside to staying at Blackwoods. Although the... More

We camped here for three days, and loved it. The sites are on the smaller side, but still fit our 8 man tent, a screen house, 4 chairs and a truck. Quite hours were adhered to which was great as we have a young child and go to bed early and getup early. Camp sites were nice and shaded and... More

The bad: The rangers pick your campsite, there are no showers, there is only cold water in the sinks in the bathroom and you have to press the little button over and over to wash your hands or face, they have rules about quiet hours but nobody enforced them and our first night we were kept awake by our noisy...

There are lots of campsites here but we still felt like we had a lot of privacy. The bathrooms are fine. There aren't any showers inside the campground, but just outside the entrance to the campground is a place where you can pay to shower (very nice and clean). There are strict rules about quiet hours and what is and... More

We spent two nights at this campground. The spot was chosen by the staff upon our arrival at the entrance of the campground. They at least listened to our request that we get a spot near a trail that would take us to the coastal viewing spot. Our camp spot was clean and flat. The fire pit was spotless with... More
