We really enjoyed our time at Somes Sound CG. the campground is ideally situated about 20 minutes from Acadia and really just about anything you want to do on the island. Arrived on a Friday and the CG was packed, for the most part, but there is enough room between sites that it doesn't feel like people are on top... More

We enjoyed our stay at Somes Sound. No complaints on our part. We were staying on site 24 and felt like we lucked out. At first we were looking at the ones by the water but they were booked the week end we were going there. In the end we would probably get the same site as it had some... More

We have no complaints. The office closes around 6:30 we called to say we would be late. They said we could set up and check in in the morning. When we arrived someone was closing office but was so gracious to open up and sign us in an hour after closing. Our site, 33 was a good size and long.... More

First time up in the Bar Harbor, Mt. Dessert area with my boyfriend. We booked a site made for a small tent with w/e. First with the Pros: Although made for small tent, plenty of room for our tent and car without crowding the firepit or picnic table. Site was clean upon arrival. Although little to no trees between sites,... More

We had a great stay at the campground. Stayed at spot 6 for 4 nights, which was a great site, although a bit big for just the tent and our car. It got a ton of morning sun, which was good and bad, with the day heating up very quickly. We were fortunate enough to arrive on the first day... More

Wish I could have stayed longer! Close to Acadia NP( about 20 minutes) and a great place to camp for a family or friends. Nice level areas to set up water and electric available yet very secluded feeling if you set your camp up to block views of your neighbors. Nicely wooded. Buy wood there or bring your own, water...

A very nice campground, some wonderful sites and some sites that I would never want. We had site 27 for two of us and a small tent it was perfect. The bathrooms are pretty decent. Biggest complaint is lack of workers in campground. They're in the office but after hours not reachable and not patrolling the grounds. The site next... More

It's a nice campground. Many of the spots are secluded from the others. Each site has a fire pit and picnic table, water, and electricity. There's a good place to launch kayaks or boats from. You can pay a little extra to take hot showers. Some sites have wooden platforms for tents. Others do not, and the ground is sloped... More

Stayed here over 4th of July weekend (Thurs-Sun) so the place was booked solid. It was one of the few places that still had openings when we booked just a month prior. We stayed at site 40 (tent site with water & electricity) and liked that it was more out-of-the-way than many of the sites so we didn't see a... More
