Unusual policy of no reservations which, if you plan on staying only a couple of days, may leave you with not the best site. However, if you will be staying for awhile, you can relocate as others move on. Great location that we have visited three times over the years.

This is a good enough place to camp but the owners have rules everywhere with an encouragement to, "Please observe all the rules to ensure a pleasant visit." This translates to, "If you do not observe all the rules we will make sure you visit is not pleasant." Expensive (privately owned) but a decent place to camp if you are... More

After much looking, we choose this campground for our Bar Harbor vacation and we were so glad we did. We had a lovely experience. This campground is quite unique in that you actually drive around, pick an open site that suites you best and claim it. We came in on a Sunday morning and got an ocean view site, near... More

We've been to this campground three years in a row and had a great experience each time. The ground are clean and well cared for. The bathrooms are always clean and the showers always have hot water. The people that run the campground are friendly and very helpful. The sites are quiet and fellow campers respect one another. Remember to... More

We traveled from Miami with two young children (3, 5) to enjoy the fall foliage. After much deliberation, we chose to stay here due to its proximity to Acadia and on-site facilities. Since it was the end of the camping season, we had our choice of sites and opted for R1 with a view of the ocean. The site is... More

We were quite impressed with this campground. It is amazingly clean and the facilities/amenities are real nice. Definitely a great place to stay if you have children. Their playground is sure to please any child. We went the weekend they were closing (mid-October) so the pool was closed but it still looked really nice. The campground is neatly located close...

Acadia N.P. was the highlight of our Maine trip. Because this campground does not take reservations, I was just a bit nervous that we would actually find a spot. We planned to arrive in the middle of the week. As we toured the sites, it was looking like we'd have to choose another campground to stay, BUT along the outer... More

Close to Acadia and Bar Harbor. Quiet and roomy. Nothing spectacular. Wifi worked well. We would definitely stay there again. The staff were friendly and helpful. We did not use the bathhouse so cannot comment on them. We had a pull through site which had some slope to it but were able to level up our motorhome . Nice restaurant... More

There are numerous campgrounds in the Bar Harbor area, including two in Acadia National Park, but this one has reasonable rates, included Wi-Fi, offers full hook-ups, is nearest to downtown Bar Harbor and to the Acadia National Park visitor center. They have both shaded back-in sites and open pull-through sites, but no store for supplies, though they do sell firewood,... More

We enjoyed our stay at this campground but didn't think it was anything special compared to others that we've visited elsewhere in New England. -The staff were helpful and pleasant, -bathrooms are clean but drafty and dated (I found I needed 2 qtrs. to have a proper shower) - whilst there is a good view of the bay from the...
