We extended our stay because we were so comfortable here and liked it so much. We had a great site (B7) with full hook-up. Our neighbors at the site were extremely friendly and helpful. The staff at the office assisted us with tour ideas, maps and dinner suggestions. We even had lobster dinner delivered to our camp site. The staff... More

We arrived a little bit after dark, was told prior in the season we don't need a reservation. We were told they only have a couple sites one being 50 amp. The spot he told us, was 30amp and the site is so unlevel. We have a 44ft RV. Full site hook up, consist of a 4 inch clean out... More

We normally stay at Hadley Point Campground while in Bar Harbor, but there was not a spot to be had, so we went over to Bar Harbor Campground. They do not take reservations, and we were pleasantly surprised. It is closer to town, a shorter ride on the Island Explorer, and our location was private, nicely wooded, and very relaxing.... More

We are retired so the no reservation policy works for us. It's the main reason we come here. We have a 20 foot travel trailer - many of the sites are extremely out of level. The sites are mostly spacious enough though not overly so. Our experience has been that the campground is quiet.

This was our first time at Bar Harbor Campground. The people in the office were very friendly and our site was nice and clean. The bathrooms were good and the campground was really quiet at night which we thought was great. This campground is in a great location with family diner a short walk away and a beautiful mini putt.... More

We came to stay 3 days and enjoyed it so much, we stayed a week! Lots of wooded campsites as well as some open sites and a number of sites with an ocean view. We were excited to go into the field behind the campground and pick our own wild blueberries. All facilities are clean and well maintained. All staff... More

My husband and I wanted a last minute camping get away but didn't think we'd be able to go to Bar Harbor with no reservations until we stumbled upon this gem which is first come, first serve. Even then, we were a little hesitant to drive up in case they were full but we arrived on a Friday afternoon and... More

Clean, quiet, beautiful ocean view, free bus to Bar Harbor and all of Acadia Park all at a good price. I was a bit worried about the no reservation policy, but it worked out fine. No credit cards - Bring cash or use their ATM, these folks aren't making the banker richer off your back. Couldn't ask for anything more.

We stayed 2 nights here and we were happy with it. Pretty clean, nice people and bus to Bar Harbor leaves right from it. We had a wooded back in sight and it was nice for privacy. Need a few more bathroom stalls but other than that no issues.

I enjoyed our site. Nice view and good blueberry picking(in season). I like picking my own site and staying as long as we wanted. Overall, very good campground, paved wide roads. This place has not changed since I was a kid, and I like it that way!
