We are fairly local, but enjoy camping nearby when possible. We made our reservations last minute, and decided to try a cabin. Bare bones, but very clean and great location. Nothing over the top special, but appropriately priced .

I am rating this against other private campgrounds. Spent three nights at Somes Sound with my wife. We used the campsite as a base to explore the area. The campground was at Maximum capacity and I found it to be a nice experience. If you are used to camping in National or Provincial Parks the sites are def, closer together... More

This campground was able to accommodate last minute reservations and were very helpful. The facilities are pretty average (but certainly adequate) for a campground, and we had a great time. Walking distance to hiking trails and swimming at Echo Lake, and a peaceful night sleep. I would absolutely stay here again.

We stayed at SSVC for 6 nights. For some reason, there is no one working there past 7pm. A couple of evenings while sitting outside the office to access the wifi we were constantly interrupted by people in need of assistance. We directed multiple people to nearby locations where they could purchase firewood, as the camp store locks their $5... More

I have been to Somes Sound once with just my gf and once with a group of friends. I am about to spend another 4 nights there this coming August. I have always had an excellent experience at this campground. The sites and facilities are very well kept and the staff/owner are extremely pleasant. I will absolutely continue to stay... More

My husband and I camped for two nights at the Land Ho sight and loved it. The campground is spread out enough we that we didn't feel crowded around. The sight had a great outlook to the lake and a nearby port-a-potty that was useful instead of climbing to the washroom. Washroom facilities were very clean and spacious for a... More

I loved this campground from seeing deer ealy morning to fishing off their pier twice a day. The location is excellent for Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor. We are outdoor people and spent all of our time exploring. Deb and her team were all smiles, the bathrooms were very clean, the pool refreshing and the grounds interesting with old... More

We found this campground by chance online. We only had a few days to spend in the area and we really wanted to stay right on the water and most campgrounds required a full week to reserve a water front sight. In my opinion we had the best site in the whole place. Research your site very carefully as many... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. I am very glad you liked your site, it is a lovely one. You are correct some sites are smaller than others. It is a good idea to check out our map online, as that will show how large each site is. Our staff is very careful to... More

I have been coming to Somes Sound for over 15 years, before the current owner owned it. Since the new owners have owned it they have overhauled the entire campground by putting in a pool, tearing down the old bath house and building a new one. I come every summer and will continue to do so. I love that it... More

We stayed on the campground over the long weekend, and loved it! The staff was very friendly and helpful from the time we were booking our site through the checkout. All facilities were very clean, the team was all smiles, great suggestions on the area off the beaten path, and since our site was not booked the day we were... More
