Amazing - stunning park, great trails, bring your bike for the carriage paths and use the free bus system to get around, get up to Cadillac Mountain (no bus to that spot). Know before you go - the campground has flush toilets in well placed modern AND VERY CLEAN buildings but no hot water and the button for the cold... More

The bathrooms at this campground were cleaner than some restaurants we have been to. Everything was very well maintained. We were in the B loop, which does not have any large RV sites- it is mostly tent campers. There were a few loud groups but overall quiet and peaceful. Very nice!

This is a sweet little gem of a campground. The sites are compact but this allows for more sites in a popular park. Despite their smallness they feel rather large and are well spaced and I didn't feel like I was on top of folks despite the campground being full each night we were there. The gravel can be a...

while the setting of acadia on the beautiful coast of maine may rate as one of the top scenic places on the east coast, this national park is a zoo. not from an organizational standpoint however, the rangers are great, friendly and professional, the grounds tidy and and the free shuttles dependable - bathrooms clean, water potable. there are just...

If you are choosing between the two main campgrounds at Acadia, you are essentially choosing between location and the campground itself. Blackwoods is PERFECTLY located to explore the main parts of Acadia and Bar Harbor. The drive to town is only about 10 minutes and it's quite close to several entrances to the Loop Road. It's got a small store... More

Nice sites, with picnic table, fire pit and space for a tent, modern bathrooms that are well maintained (although not perfect). No showers at the campground but an entrepreneur down the street has some ($2), and there's a nearby store with the stuff you forgot. I don't know whether this is a pro or a con: No wifi, no service... More

If you want get away from everything and hike one of the best trails in Acadia national park, this place is perfect for you. We stayed in the B loop, which leads directly to the south ridge trail of the crown jewel of the park, Cadillac Mountain. Watch the stars clearly, or hit the nearby beach. This is your ideal...

Everything about Acadia National Park was fantastic! I knew the reviews had told us so but seeing it in person was soul changing! Camping at Blackwoods was just the cherry on top. Check- in with the Rangers was easy and informative, finding our campsite was quick and getting a basic layout of the grounds all took very little time or... More

Tent camping in the National Park over Labor Day weekend.... We lucked out with Beautiful weather. Campground was full yet did not seem crowded. Basic bathrooms-no hot water. Some sites are pretty close together but most campers are respectful of keeping quiet hours. Showers just outside of the campground were fine. Four minutes for $2. We were in A loop... More
