This was our 4th time staying at the Bar Harbor Campground over the last 10 years. It is very conveniently located and has a bus stop right at the campground if you prefer to ride the buses to different locations on the island versus taking your vehicle. Bar Harbor is only minutes away. The campground is clean, quiet, and well designed. Quiet hours are strictly enforced which is nice. The WIFI is good but your best reception is up near the main gate. The washroom facilities are clean and the showers are great. 25 cents gets you 5 minutes of hot water. They actually sell hardwood for firewood instead of that cheap smokey slab wood that you get at other campgrounds. There is a convenience store and restaurant on the main road and a short walk from the campground. The convenience store sells Green Mountain take out coffee in the morning for early risers. The campground is very family oriented, but people of all ages stay there. The sites are first come first serve, but we had no difficulty finding a suitable site. I was surprised that they do not take credit cards but there is an ATM in the office where you register. They have a special promotion that if you stay 6 nights, the 7th night is free. A tent site, with no services, I believe was approximately $30. The staff were very helpful and friendly. This is a very nice campground and we will definitely be returning next summer.
