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

I've been attempting to make a reservation at Somes Sound View Campground for over a week now. I've emailed, called and filled out a reservation request online... With no response what so ever. Looks like we'll be camping at Smuggler's Den instead.

Campground has nice private sites we camped at No.42, we are tenters and value a little privacy, the sites are well laid out and private, most sites have water and electricity, thereis only one central ablution block but there are portable toilets situated throughout the campground which are clean and easy to use (having said that the toilet doors have...

This campground has a lot of tent sites. There are only a few campsites that will fit a large RV. We booked site 11a, and this was perfect for our 35ft 5th wheel. We were there the weekend/week of Memorial Day. The weekend itself, the campground was pretty full, but the rest of the week, we had the campground pretty... More

I went here with a group of 6 and we got 2 sites next to each other (site #45 and #46) for July 4 weekend. We stayed for 2 nights and although I made the reservation late for that weekend, we still got a good spot. This was the only campground I could find that does not require 3 nights... More

Loved this campground, so peaceful and close to everything we needed. A doe wandered right by without a care in the world. Camp staff was friendly and helpful. It was fun watching the lobster boats from the beach.
