I have stayed in this campground twice, once with a large group (in the group site) and once with my husband in one of the walk in sites. The group sites are just large open areas with picnic tables. not very cozy, but a good bargain for a large scout group (or similar). Nothing particularly noteworthy. When booking our couples...

Our stay at Seawall was wonderful! Nice secluded sites, close to all Acadia activities. Very informative seminaries by rangers at night. Must watch sunset at Bass Harbor Headlight! If you don't want to haul luggage and camp gear to your site- request a drive in site. A little less "woodsy," but still secluded. Only complaint is that there are no... More

We liked this campground well enough, although we were no where close to being able to see the ocean. We would stay here again if in the area. The showers were just like home and the park was pretty quiet this time of year. The scenery was terrific. Too bad there wasn't more wildlife to see.

Stayed here for 3 nights last week and it was amazing. The site (b16) backed up to seawall lake (?) and we awoke to sunrise peeping in and the crazy red squirrels. I was able to get two hammocks up in this site for those who care. The bathroom families were cleaner than many hotels I've stayed in. Shoot, cleaner... More

We stayed here because of the rustic feel. Guards were friendly and answered our questions. There are many geocaches around this area. It's moments away from three simple easy hikes to get you warmed up for the rest of your trip. Quiet and beautiful. PS: clean your dishes at your site and there is a dump station by the bathrooms....

Stayed for 4 nights and loved the campground, especially the location. Falling asleep to the sound of waves crashing on the surf was amazing! Loved the picnic area across from the campground, and having Bass Harbor Lighthouse, the Wonderland and Ship Harbor trails close by. Yes it was a drive to the other more popular (AKA CROWDED) areas but that's... More

This is a great campground a little bit away from the hustle of other side of the Island. Both Seawall and Blackwoods have their benefits, and Seawall's are clean and roomy bathrooms, large sites, proximity to less traveled areas of the park, and the sound of the sea in the background. For those wanting more immediate access to Bar Harbor,... More

Very clean campsite, the bathrooms were clean and nearby. There are benches on each campsite and fire rings and you can purchase fire woods from the campsite. The staff were so friendly and helpful when we checked in. The only drawback was, it's on the other side of the island from most of the trails, but a great stay.

Spacious, clean tent site with decent distance between neighboring campsites. You can check in late. And you can hear the waves from sea even deep in the middle of the campground. It IS on the opposite side of the island from most of the park, but a good stay nonetheless.

My walk-in tent site provided soothing sounds of the surf in the morning, access to secluded coasts and carriage trail hikes in the day, and Southwest Harbor restaurants and a campfire in the evening. I'm not sure what you are looking for from your national parks, but this is exactly what I wanted. I will definitely visit again.
