Our waterfront campsite was so beautiful and peaceful that we lingered there most mornings until lunch and returned earlier than usual in the afternoon. I fell asleep and awoke to the sound of the water lapping the shore and dock. A regular camper told us the owners and hosts take quiet hours seriously. At 10pm sharp campers all around us... More

I was only ever at the campground once so far, and I absolutely loved it! My fiance had been going with his family on vacation every year since he was a kid, so he said he had to take me there. The campground is very clean, very well-kept, and quiet. I've been to campgrounds before where people were very loud,... More

My husband and I stayed at Mount Desert Campground for 3 days. We were able to choose our campsite, before reserving it. I really like that option. We picked a waterfront view. A beautiful view! I have never set my tent up on a wooden platform before, so I wasn't sure how I would feel about it. I love it!... More

This campground was a Very pleasant surprise. It has a lot of spots, though it can't take trailers over 20 ft. Not a good one for RVs. We stayed along the bay side with a beautiful water view. The spot was a walk in technically but it was far by any stretch. We did have neighbors the 1st couple of... More

My wife and I spent six nights in our small tent on a wooden platform overlooking Somes Sound. Our site, although not far from others, felt secluded due to the borders of small spruce trees under tall white pines. At the site the picnic table, the tent platform, the ground and even the fire pit were all immaculate. Needless to... More

We were able to reserve a waterfront site for the sunday before labor day, I was glad to reserve because we would be driving over 12hrs to get there and arrive late in the evening. In fact the office was closed but they had left out a map and nails for us to set up on the platform. The site... More

We have stayed with MDICG every year for the past twelve, or so, years. Every year we have a tent platform right along the ocean. The experience is wonderful/magical. The owners are very much hands on, there every day to greet you. Staff are wonderful. Folks who stay there are mostly long time campers. There are rarely any issues. In... More

To say we were completely disappointed with our experience at Mount Desert Campground is an understatement. We just returned from our Labor Day camping trip as a group of three families (6 professional adults with a total of seven children). We were allowed to book three adjoining campsites, but as it was made abundantly clear when we arrived, it was... More

Thank you for your comments. When we receive multiple complaints over two days from fellow campers, we have to act on those complaints. We regret that you were so unhappy with us. More

I have stayed here at least 4 times in the last 12 years and something has changed. The staff is completely intolerant of families and has lost touch with what the camping experience is supposed to be. This most recent time we were traveling with 2 other families with kids ranging from 4 to 9 years of age and reserved... More

Great sites, many with AMAZING views! All with water and electric (for $2 more per day)!! Plus the campground is nicely located very centrally on Mount Desert Island... Hard to beat!! We can't wait to go back!!
