On our trip across the Northeast of the US this was our favorite campground! We had planned to camp here for three nights and ended up staying for a full week, which was no problem at all. Very friendly, accommodating and helpful staff, great views (especially if you can snag one of the spots with an ocean view), and all... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and absolutely loved our time here! Very reasonably priced, beautiful sites, very clean bathhouses, and super nice staff. Loved how the Island Explorer bus comes right to the campground. Wifi not good at campsites, but excellent in the bathrooms! :) Highly Recommend!

GREAT CAMPGROUND!!!!! We went there on July 2015 for a weekend family trip. Our first experience!! It was a last minute road trip so we rented a tent lot and there was plenty of lot available. Our tent lot was clean, spacious and very private in the woods, and 30 seconds of walk from the bathroom/showers. There was a nice... More

We loved the non traditional way of picking out your campsite. You pick what one is best for you and your needs and claim it. We decided to stay another night and just had to tell the office. No problem. So close to Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor. I would stay there again in a heartbeat.

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.
