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

We decided we wanted to rent cabins instead of pulling our travel trailer to spend a long weekend in beautiful Acadia. Our original choice in campground was not available so we decided to try out Somes Sound View Campground and rented the Barnacle and the Starfish. The first thing we notice it was not close enough for us to Bar... More

Our family enjoyed tent camping at Somes Sound View. The campground provides well set up sites, enough privacy, and some key amenities to make the experience more comfortable. The access to a water tap and electrical outlet directly at the campsite, as well as access to a clean bath house with available showers ($1 per 5 min) was well appreciated.... More

We loved staying at Somes Sound View Campground. We stayed at the Wave site within a few feet of the sound. We loved watching the lobster boats and beautiful skies. We saw a bald eagle, two porpoises and a seal - all from our campsite. Having the dock nearby was also very special. We brought our kayaks and had fun... More

We stayed last year in August and it was a refreshing change to find the accommodations exactly as advertised. The staff was upbeat and positive when we arrived and was helpful throughout our 1 week stay. This campground is well managed. Facilities are well maintained. The campground is in a glorious location. We just booked another week!
