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!

This campground is set up for tent camping and blends all the comfort of car camping with the beautiful location usually only found trail camping. There are several sights right on the sound and with great views of the sound. Its located just outside of Acadia and is absolutely amazing. The showers here are hot and run $1 for 5... More

We camped the first week of October and shared the entire campground with 2 or 3 other campers who were spread out. So we enjoyed great privacy! We are afraid if it were peak season or full, it might be a little noisy. As others have said, the bathrooms/showers were large and very clean, but at a high price. $1.00/5... More

I spent a week in September 2013 at the Land Ho site at SSVC. After an initial mix up due to other campers not aware that the original site (Anchor) had been reserved and paid for by me (and who occupied it anyway), Land Ho site ended up being home, and the best choice in my opinion because of the...

The campsite was full when we booked for the beginning of August, so we ended up with a tent on a large RV site, but that was okay. The staff were so friendly when we booked, and also when we arrived. There are games and toys to borrow from the office, which is lovely when you're travelling with kids and... More

We stayed at Somes Sound for 5 nights during August and had a very nice stay. The campsites are close together and covered with gravel. This is fine if you are not in a tent but since we were it was a hard surface to sleep on and a waste of the possible soft pine needle beds from the trees.... More

We decided to stay at Somes Soundview after 2 visits to Seawall campground because we wanted a place with a few more amenities, namely showers. The waterfront site Land Ho was small but the location was unbelievable. The sunrise over the mountains each morning was fabulous. Location close to southwest harbor was a plus, as well as the pool, which... More

Nice campground but would probably not go back. We have a travel trailer and the layout of the sites are not logical for hook-ups. The proper location for hook-ups should always be on the right side of site. Many of the sites at this campground have the water on one side and the electricity on the other. Some sites, like...

Stayed here for one night last week in the Anchor Site. We loved the site, had a little shady tree spot, great view, and our tent overlooked the water. The bathrooms were clean, large. We didn't shower here, because the idea of buying tokens was a little weird. We were also a little close to a very large group, but... More
