We prefer staying in State Camp grounds when we travel because they tend to give you lots of room, lots of trees, and quiet. However, when we traveled to Maine we couldn't find a state camp ground with electric at the site. We LOVED staying at Bar Harbor Campground. They have everything the state camp grounds have to offer plus... More

We camped here in Late September for 8 days. Love the wooded privacy sites although they also have limited ocean front and other open sites. There's a free shuttle that takes us right from the campground to the various points of Acadia and downtown Bar Harbor. Super convenient. My husband had to go away on a business trip during our...

Very nice and neat campground. No reservations accepted and cash only. A wide variety of site types. Friendly and knowledgeable staff very willing to help us with the site seeing opportunities in the area.

We rolled into this campground on the Friday of Labor Day Weekend with no reservations - which worked out well because they don't take reservations. We were given a map and told to go drive around and pick out the spot that looked best to us. I loved that. We found a pair of wooded, shady tent sites that were... More

We have been coming to Bar Harbor campground for 18+ years. The original Robbins family is still involved in the day to day running of the campground. Craig and his very capable crew of associates keep the cg running smoothly. From the friendliness to the cleanliness and far beyond the experience is what has campers returning year after year. Convenient... More

Stayed here after spending 3 nights at Camden hills state park, and preferred the state Park. Few sites were available for full hookup and were amongst long term campers. After a heavy rain, significant water pooled in the site which drained poorly. The best views in the campground are occupied by the pool, dumpout station and laundry house with a... More

We have been camping at this campground for about 20 years now and I still love it there!!! Bar Harbor Campground has a beautiful ocean view, swimming pool, and laundromat at the top of the hill. It is very family and pet friendly. Thank you Bar Harbor Campground for always making our annual visit to Maine even more enjoyable!!!

We stayed here for a week, after finding out that our reserved site at a different local campground had been double-booked and they didn't have a spot for us. We could not have been luckier. Bar Harbor Campground is one of the best run campgrounds we have ever stayed at. The bathrooms were immaculate, staff was extremely friendly and helpful,... More
