We paid extra for a waterfront campsite, and the view was well worth the small amount of extra money. The campground is a short trip from the town of Bar Harbor and the National Park. We were staying at the end of their season (Columbus Day weekend 2016). The staff were helpful and friendly, and not insistent on strict compliance...

I have been coming to this campground for years with family and friends. We have always booked there because of the great views by the water. We generally have a large group and we book 3 sites on the water because the views are amazing. This year we were blown away by the service at the Campground. Tom Brady was...

Great location and camp sites. Quiet this time of year so, can't judge what happens during summer. Appears pretty well maintained. We would certainly keep it as first choice if we were to return to this beautiful area.

Staff was outstanding, courteous and professional. Wifi was excellent once established (new system). Laundry room needs more washing machines, and a water filter to eliminate brown coloring in water caused by local trees.

We were hoping for a welcoming experience and did not receive that. We felt rushed and like the workers did not want to be there. The view was amazing, however the site smelled like open sewer! We have stayed in the past but may look at other option in the future.

We picked this campground based on an article in Sept. 2016 MotorHome "Maine Course". It was overpriced, old and worn out appearing. Office closed at 5:00. Difficult to use dump station located in the exit. An additional fee for booking thru Encore, no other booking option.

Our first trip with our motor home had equipment glitches. But it would have been a disaster if not for the people who work at the campground. With the help of Jack, he contacted a camper repairman and he came and analized the problem, fixed our motor home so we could go home, and gave some very helpful tips to...

Price too high for end of the season or off-season. Very nice site except for acorns falling on camper and vehicle. Guess there is not a lot you can do about that other than ask for a site out in the open. Staff was very friendly and informative. Bus ran daily into Bar Harbor which was great for those who...

We always look forward to this camping trip. Staff is wonderful, setting on the water is beautiful and the price is competitive. Location allows for easy access to all the island has to offer. Already booked for next year.

Nice park located as you first come onto Mt Desert Island. Good location for all island activities. Site was easy to find & pull into. Site was level. Would have like full hookup, however dump station was easily accessed on our way out. Did not use amenities such as restrooms, showers or laundry.
