A peaceful retreat! Sites were wooded, shady, and spacious! The cabins look amazing...especially the new ones. Grocery store located close by. Southwest Harbor is easily located to other areas on MDI.

I camped here solo in the late summer, after high season. When I went to the office to inquire about a site, I was met by a kind of confused "what the hell do you want?" look from the guy there.When I told him I wanted a campsite (imagine that!) he seemed to comprehend and was polite from then on....

My family came to Mount Desert Island for a week-long stay, so when researching the area, we focused on finding camping cabins and came across Smuggler's Den. This was a very nice, large campground with tent/trailer/RV sites, as well as rustic cabins and "Deluxe cabins" which have a private bathroom, kitchen, and screenhouse. We initially picked a rustic cabin due... More

Just spend a week at Smuggler's Den Campground in a deluxe cabin. The cabin was very nice, and clean. The campground staff was very friendly and helpful. Close to Acadia National Park, and other activities on Mount Desert Island. Will be staying here again!

This was exactly what we were looking for. Some of the best bathrooms I have seen while camping. There was a nice wash sink outside the bathrooms for doing dishes. Just be prepared for a slight line depending on time of day. We brought our own wash bin so it wasnt that bad. We were on a nonelectric tent site.... More

We've been coming to this campground for 17 years out of the last 20. It is as clean as dirt can be! The restrooms and showers are cleaned daily and they look it. The price is right and the staff helps in any way possible. AND it is pet friendly which is important. It is also close to Acadia National... More

We stayed in a rustic cabin. We had 2 adults and 3 kids. We had plenty of room. The beds were very comfortable. I loved how close we were to the bathhouse, campstore, laundry, pool, playground, etc. Everyone was very nice and helpful. It is a great location to stay, close many wonderful trails and activities on Mt Desert.

This is one of our favorite campgrounds, and we travel extensively. It's no wonder every RV site is booked during their high season (July through September). We always book 6 to 8 months ahead for a 2 to 3 week stay. The campground is clean, beautifully landscaped and well laid out with a very nice pool area, an excellent large... More

I am not sure where you can register upon arriving and be greeted with a big smile and by name and with a welcome back, how was your year. That has been our experience at Smugglers Den. They have put in a pool and a very nice playground, have added rustic as well as deluxe cabins and yet have maintained... More
