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

we chose a campground because i needed to be eased into the idea of camping so i wanted the amenity of plumbing and we wanted to be near acadia national park. there are definitely trails and sights for the national park within a few minutes drive of this campground, but we didn't realize that we'd be spending so much time...

My husband and I just returned from Acadia National Park and spent 3 nights at Smugglers Den. We didn't make reservations months or even weeks in advance, and the campgrounds inside the park were already booked. We decided on Smugglers Den and were so pleased once we arrived and set up camp. They had everything we needed from hot and... More

We stayed here 3 nights in our motorhome in July 2012. Our site was nicely shaded but not all were. The staff was friendly. Lobsters and lobster boiling equipment were available at the camp store. The location was great, convenient to Southwest Harbor, Bar Harbor, and Acadia Nat. Park. The campground was on the bus route if you did not... More
