Not a bad campground, but I wouldn't venture to say it was great. What is great about it is that you are right in Acadia National Park . The bathrooms were mostly clean. No showers if you don't already know that. The sites leave a lot to be desired privacy wise. However, they are currently trying to plant more pine... More

Loop B, site 24 was a nice large site for 2 tents and a very large tarp. Easy registration and check out. We appreciated the opportunity to extend our stay for another night by going to the campground office early in the AM (6:50) to get in line for any available spots which had opened up. We were first for... More

My family of four camped here for eight nights recently and I highly recommend it! Our site (A31) was everything you could want in a camp site. It was set back from the road and shielded from nearby sites by the forest but had an open area near the tent/fire pit area to allow for awesome star gazing. The restrooms... More

We stayed at Blackwoods for four days and enjoyed the campground very much. The site was large and fairly private and the bathrooms were very clean. This campground is near the Parkloop Road and allowed us to access the areas near the coast for early morning photography at sunrise without long drives.

Acadia Maine is beautiful first of all. And the camping ground was so clean and greatly set up. It was easy to get into and the Rangers were super nice and told us everything we needed to know. It's a great central location close to bar harbor, Cadillac mountain, and everything you want to see! Oh and they are dog... More

This campground was beautiful. Sites were close together but it felt private. There was plenty of room for our needs. Bathrooms were always clean. Take a walk or bike ride toward the ocean and there is a little path to an overlook with two benches. Perfect viewing! Would stay again!

Heavily treed campsites allowed plenty of privacy and opportunities to hang or hammocks! The free Island Explorer bus stop was a perfect way to get into Bar Harbor and reach the trail-heads for Cadillac Mountain. As far as facilities, it was good to have dish-water drains, but the bathrooms could be better maintained.

Me and my partner stopped here during our stay in Acadia for 3 days. Our vacation lasted 7 days and Acadia was the highlight of our trip. Staff were super friendly and helpful, and well as our camp neighbors. This campground is surrounded by trails to hike and is in a prime location. The only 2 downfalls in our campground... More

We were really excited to visit Blackwoods because of all the fabulous reviews. I think campers' experiences will vary depending on where they get placed by the park ranger. While there were many awesome, private sites available as we pulled in near dusk, we were placed in a spot with hardly any tree coverage. Our picnic table was chained down... More

There's so much to say. This place is fabulous. This is a beautiful and clean campground with friendly and helpful park rangers. The restrooms are nearly spotless. Wish all state and national parks would mimic this campground's cleanliness. Garbage, recycling, and water access is near all restrooms and easy to find - plus the garbage was emptied frequently so no... More
