Beautiful park, pond. Close to Acadia for daily trips, and clean pond perfect for swimming and kayaking. The more expensive sites are definitely worth the difference, being closer to the water. Loved talking with the seasonal campers who helped me feel more comfortable staying through the overnight tropical storm. Wish the office was open past 5, had to get firewood elsewhere for one of the nights, but found some for sale along the road.
The ground at our site, #41, was lower at the front half of our rig and higher at the rear and at the road, so all the rain accumulated at the front half of our rig. At one point we had nearly 4" of water at the base of our stairs and under the awning....making it impossible to get out or our rig without walking through water. Simply adding more gravel or creating a channel from this low area to the creek behind the spot would remedy this problem. When it wasn't raining, the roads were quite dusty. Other than these problems with our particular site, the campground was acceptable. OTA TV was non existent. Verizon signal was OK. We paid for Camplink Wifi and it worked pretty good to stream Netflix. Had no problems with W/E/S connections.
We are tent campers, and were looking for something that would keep us more comfortable and dry. The cabin (C3) was adorable. It was perfect for what we were looking for. We were able to stay comfortable, dry, and relaxed. We were right across from a playground and basketball court so our son had plenty of fun with the kids on the campground. It was nice and quiet. We have already recommended to some family and friends and would come back for sure!
We had a great stay at Patton Pond. Staff was friendly. A bit far out from Acadia. Ellsworth was a great little town. We stay here for 2 weeks. Met many friendly campers. Did not had a pool. They did receive packages for us. A few marginal seasonal campers.
Really liked the cabin. It is very cozy. Only draw back is no bathroom in unit. Community bathroom and shower is very close. We liked to camp so this was not a big deal to us but others may not like having to run up a hill for late night bathroom breaks.
