This is a really nice extensive campground in the woods that is extremely reasonably priced and run by friendly staff. People at the KOA staying further from town were paying more than double for sites that were not as nice. Actually, some of them came to our campground after talking to us. The free LL Bean sponsored shuttle stops right... More

My husband and I have been visiting Bar Harbor for six years but this time around my parents joined us with their 32" trailer. For this reason we required hook ups and we hoped to be as close to town as possible. The real downfall in my opinion is the no reservation policy which starts the vacation out on an... More

I spent 3 days here at site #7 with an ocean view. The staff was very helpful and the facilities were very well kept. Bath houses were exceptional and always stocked with product. Recommend this campground to anyone wanting to stay close to Bar Harbor.

We had an easy and wonderful experience camping here. The staff was straightforward and helpful. The ocean view, although windy, was BREATHTAKING. Close to town and Acadia national park. Great location! We fully enjoyed our stay and cannot wait to get back to Maine.

I have visited this campground every year except 3 years since 1966! We love the spectacular views, great sites, & cleanliness along with its being close to so many attractions. Our favorite area on the east coast. The staff are not as friendly as the original owners, but they do keep the place up.

This is a first come first served campground. We visited after main tourist season in Sept 2014, there were a few pull throughs with full hookups for us to choose from. I've heard this place is very busy during summer and it's hard to find a space. I cannot speak to that. The spaces that have ocean view (we were... More

Bar Harbor campground was an outstanding experience! Very close to Bar Harbor downtown and the park. The staff is very helpful and friendly. For example I had to have a book delivered for which they were very accommodating. There is onsite propane. The sites accommodate every traveler. We were in D across the street from Ocean View. Perfect ocean breezes.... More

My husband and I camped for 2 nights last week and we were very satisfied. It was just us without the kiddos this time and we opted to tent camp. The campground does not take reservations and it does not accept credit cards so be sure to have cash available or a personal check. There is an atm in the... More
