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

Although we are retired we did appreciate the "family friendly atmosphere" of this very large campground. There are large sites for every type of camping from tents to large RVs. The staff is very friendly and there is an Arcadia bus pick-up at the entrance. Full hook-ups 264/week which is very good for BH. You have to pay by cash... More

Quiet and clean. 5 minute drive to Acadia/Bar Harbor. Nice set up for a fire. We originally wanted a site in the ocean view section. Glad we didn't since it is up by the playground and pool. It was just my honey and I and we wanted things to be slower and quieter. If we had kids with us it... More

What an awesome campground. My wife and I were a little worried when we found out they don't take reservations but there were plenty of tent sites available. We lucked out and got one of the sites with a water view and surrounded by blueberry fields. The bathrooms and showers were always clean and well taken care of. The showers... More
