Blackwoods Campground was an excellent experience with knowledgeable rangers, clean campsites, well kept bathrooms and close access to the park. Showers are offsite, a little up Rte 3, pay with quarters and campsites can be a little close to one another. Otherwise a wonderful, enjoyable camping experience.

I have been looking forward to camping in Maine for quite a long time and I was not disappointed. Great sites, quiet location, resources (firewood, groceries,etc) available nearby and the staff was great. Wonderful place to camp.

This campground is great because it's so near BarHarbor and rock climbing. The bathrooms are clean and the rangers are really helpful. The camp sites are a bit packed, but that's what you get for being near everything.

Blackwoods is in a prime location. The restrooms are surprisingly clean. However, there are no showers. Checking in was a simple task and park rangers were kind enough. This is where i have to tell you to take note: first, there is NO cell service at all. Second, get a free Acadia map somewhere, anywhere. You will not find one... More

Blackwoods is a great location and a nice camping area. But, if you're looking to have fun and sit around the fire pit with a bunch of friends I wouldn't recommend going there because the camp sites are extremely close to each other and you can hear your neighbor sneezing. Before going we checked if the camp area is pet... More

I haven't gone camping in a while, so my expectations were simple. The area we were assigned was flat and well protected with trees, which was nice as it was raining out when we pitched the tent. Campfire area was a bit small, but they do provide a grill. Bathrooms were clean with flushing toilets, sinks and a mirror. Water... More

We had an amazing stay at Blackwoods. We usually stay on the opposite side of the island but went for a new campground and we weren't disappointed. There was a decent amount of space between the campsites, but there could have been a bit more privacy. Just a short drive to showers and to many of the amazing trails of... More

Pros: -Great location close to a lot of major sites in Acadia. -A lot of bathrooms, and the one near our site was very clean. -Picnic table and fire ring at the site Cons: -Not a single tree or bush separating our site from the inner road, so we had an unobstructed view of about 4 other campsites in close...

Loved staying at Blackwoods. Close to the showers just outside the entrance. Pretty close to all the major attractions in Acadia. Sites are more private than other campsites I've stayed at. Good space for bigger tents.

Stayed in our RV with our family of 2 adults, 2 kids. Despite some reviews about not being RV friendly, we had no problems. Make sure you book, otherwise you may find it full. When we stayed in Oct, only half of the total campground was open for use, but it was still quite full. Each space had enough room,... More
