We stayed here for five days while we explored Mount Desert Island. This was one of the nicest campgrounds I've ever used. Extremely quiet and very secluded. They have a no generator policy starting at 8 PM which made for a very peaceful evening's for those of us in tents or very small campers. I highly recommend this campground for... More

We stayed 5 nights at Seawall. Two nights were in the B loop. The site was comfortable, spacious and quiet. It was near the bathrooms, water and garbage. At night it was quiet and the other campers were friendly. The last 3 nights we had to stay in the D loop because our B loop site wasn't available. It was... More

We stayed here 4 nights end of June (perfect time of the year too) in a small camp trailer. The campground itself is very nice, lots of trees so so privacy and nice fire pit with large grate for cooking if you needed to. Very friendly park rangers and so helpful too. At the time we went they had free... More

There is a wheelbarrow if u r lucky to get it We could see 3 sites from ours but the back part was just woods which... More

The Notable Good: -Seawall's restrooms facilities are among the cleanest I have seen with car camping! -The sites are relatively secluded and private. -It is a pretty area and the Wunderland Trail that is nearby is beautiful as is the Seawall picnic are. The Bad -The picnic area described above lies on arguably better land for camping than seawall which... More

Based on the review of another camper, we reserved space B8. It was as they said. A quiet, secluded campground with lots of space. We couldn't see or hear anyone around us and the space is directly across the loop from the bathrooms. Admittedly, the bathrooms have no showers, so that is the only reason I cannot give the site...

Overall very enjoyable stay. The park is as stated the "quiet side" of the park. The rangers were very friendly and will sell you your park pass right at the station. Our site was loop a site 23 for 8 days. We were in pop up camper and were happy with our choice. We made our reservation a early as... More

We are novice tent campers when it comes to camping in the woods, but we had a marvelous time at Seawall. The only wildlife we saw were small red squirrels that kept their distance, which was just fine in our opinion! We did have a problem with mosquitoes the first night we were there, but the rest of the week... More

We liked this park, and the price can't be beat, but there were a few things that made camping there difficult for us. For one, the wood we bought in the area was damp, and the fog there kept it damp, so building fires took a long time. There were no showers, but the bath houses were clean. We had... More

I had "tent only non-electric" site 35 in the A-loop. I stayed for 3 nights, but slept in my car instead of my tent, because it was forecast to rain later in the night I arrived(it did), and rain the morning I was to leave(it did), and I would have no place to put my tent up to dry in... More
