We planned a trip to Acadia campground, but the Govt shut us out. We found this campground, and it was great! Platform to pitch tents on, water view, clean bath houses. Only downside was traffic noise.

Best parts: clean bathrooms, cinnamon buns, water view site, sites not all cramped together, friendly staff, close to all our favorite activities, real campfires allowed (s'mores!), can't beat the price, well-kept...I could go on. We've been here every year for 3 years. Will be back next year....and probably many more.

Loved this place. Nestled against the top of Somme's Sound, this campground has everything. Secluded campsites, campsites on the water, sites with tent platforms, electricity, water, hot showers. Personally i don't need all the amenities, so we could take it or leave it on the water and electricity but this is a well maintained, family run campsite that was open... More

Beautiful location, nice sites, clean bathrooms and a helpful staff. My two sons loved going crabbing on their doc. We also brought our canoe and had a great time exploring the inlet. In the middle of everything on Mt. Desert Island. We ate at a different lobster pound each night.

We traveled as 2 families in mid-September. The positives: very quiet campground, clean sites, very clean bathrooms, bathrooms convenently located throughout the campground so that there was not 1 heavily used spot that was noisy or smelly, water at many sites, convenient to Acadia and Bar Harbor. The not-so-great: many sites are A LOT closer together than the map makes... More

We stayed here for 3 nights over Labor Day weekend for the first time with another family who we camp with every year (kids ages 8-11). We had a wonderful time, both at the campground (the kids LOVED catching crabs and swimming off the dock) and exploring Acadia. Like others have said, it goes silent even before 10 pm...we were...

My girlfriend and I were here for four or five days during the early part of Labor Day week. It was one of the best campground I've ever stayed at. Our campsite was on a really pretty little cliff that looked out over Sommes Sound. We had a wooden platform for our tent, which came in extremely handy when it... More

My husband and I returned to Mt. Desert campground after a 8 year departure (we stayed at houses in bar harbor with other families for those years). We were greeted with smiles, and warmth even on a busy weekend. While I was telling one owner our excitement of returning...I overheard another camper saying the same thing to his wife "this... More

This was a perfect location to spend a weekend close to Bar Harbor and the hiking we wanted to do. We upgrades to a "premium" spot which was nice because there were less people close to our site. I am one to get down and dirty but i have to say i LOVED that there were bathrooms and showers available.... More

The best thing about this place is how well the owners have a handle on keeping the campground quiet at night. Might sound funny, but at 10pm I could hear a pin drop like someone flipped an off switch. I felt a little guilty returning late one night after a full day at Acadia because I didn't want to create... More
