We were very lucky to find a campground with some space left for the 4th of July weekend; it made me worried that this wasn't going to be a good place, however we were very pleasantly surprised by the Bass Harbor campground and had a great time.
The campsites (we were in a tent, so I'll limit my comments to those sites) all had shade, a picnic bench and a fire pit area. Some other reviewers commented that the sites were too close together, but we didn't feel like this was the case. Hot showers were free (unlike other places we looked at), and dogs were allowed. The pool and rec room seemed great for people with kids.
The women running the place were very friendly and helpful, and assisted us with information on the free island shuttle (which stops right at the entrance), and getting a park ticket.
This is on the quieter side of the island, and quite far from bar harbor, but is perfect if you are looking for a quieter stay. I would definitely recommend this and would stay again.
