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.

We stayed here from 8/7-8/11/2015, weather was perfect. Bathroom and water were nearby. The only drawback was, no showers and a little far from the park and Bar Harbor, but we knew this when we reserved this site. Just plan on doing a lot of driving, 40 mins to Acadia and to Bar Harbor. We could hear the ocean at... More

Overall, you are in Acadia National Park, which can't be beat. Nice site, fairly quiet after 10p m, I just wish the sites weren't made of gravel because we didn't want to pack an air mattress with no power at the site.

We love seawall, easy access to water and southwest harbor, hikes, kayaking, biking, etc. We have stayed twice, once in A loop and the second time in B. We liked our b loop site better, more space between sites and privacy. Bathrooms were clean and other campers quiet. No problems with noise and actually one of the quieter NP campgrounds... More

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
