KOA Oceanside is dynamite. We took one of the tent sites for a week and had a stellar time - our fourth visit. The tent sites are secluded yet close to the spotless bathrooms and showers. The showers themselves were even further touched up this year with fresh paneling and benches, adding yet another extra touch of class. The campsite... More

This campground is right next to the ocean and was a great place to spend the night. It was very quiet at night and the tent sites are nice near. We just stayed here one night while visiting Acadia. Its about 5 miles form the entrance of the park.

I am writing this review because of the wonderful customer service I had. From check in to check out, they were pleasant and upbeat and very helpful. It was an added bonus that when we had to leave a night early for personal reasons, they offered to refund the night. I actually protested as we had made the reservation, but... More

We sprung for an oceanside site and it was well worth the extra money because we seemed to have much more extra space than some of the other campsites (some of which seemed rather cramped). The only slight downside was that we didn't have a sewer hookup but that wasn't really a problem, just an minor inconvenience as we had... More

The park is right on the water. Well some of the sites are on the water for over $100.00 per day with water and electric only. The other sites are near the water but the water view is limited or not at all. Half the sites are on grass also with electric and water and are not level. There Is... More

Our deluxe cabin, #801, is clean, well-stocked, with everything you want except for one thing, which is a reasonable amount of quiet. I wish that KOA had advised us of the highway being about 300 feet away from our cabin. Many people are not bothered by traffic noise but we cherish the quiet times that come with camping. The outside... More

We discovered KOA cabins last year so when I planned my trip to Acadia, I knew I would be staying with them. We booked a deluxe cabin on ocean side for 4 nights. I was traveling with my sister (50 y/o) her 28 y/o son and my own kids, ages 15 and 12. We had plenty of room to spread... More

We've stayed at a few KOA's around the country. This one (Oceanside) is conveniently located just as you cross onto MDI. The quality and cleanliness you come to expect from a KOA are present here as well. The KOA staff here is extremely friendly and helpful. With that said, however.......I expect to pay higher than normal prices at KOAs and... More

The view and the people here are so nice! All of the campers near us were so friendly. So many things to do and see! Free shuttle busses to take you into town and to other fun locations! I would highly recommend coming here for tent, pop-up or even the largest RV camping!

The Woodlands campground was wonderful. Even before arriving, all of the staff we spoke to were very pleasant (Dotti, Donna) Mr. Bob showed us to our site and was very helpful. Our site was very private, mostly grass (which was nice) and surrounded by woods. The campground is very well maintained. The restroom facilities were immaculate. Great field for dogs... More
