Hadley's Point Campground

Reviewed July 28, 2012 via mobile

Just got home from a ten day stay at Hadley's Point . This was our fourth trip since last summer. It is the only place we will stay. Many other campers that we gave spoken to feel the same as we do !
There are only a handful of family operated campgrounds left in the area. The owners are very helpful and nice. They are committed to their campers. My weight distribution hitch broke upon my arrival on this trip, the owner, Eric, took it to his shop and quickly repaired it for me!!! I was looking at taking it to a dealership which would have been costly. This campground is like a second home for us and we will always come back !!!

This was our first trip long trip from home with our camper. We've been going to the Bar Harbor area for over 35 years and decided to try Hadley's Point. The folks at Hadley were all very nice and friendly, but unlike most of our other campoground stays, once we checked in and paid, we got no directions, no paperwork, no rules and regs or anything else for that matter. We'll give them the benefit of the doubt because they seemed very busy. Everything seemed otherwise to be well tended to with plenty of maintenance personnel around.

PROS: The local (free) bus service is a quick ride to Bar Harbor or the many points of interest in Mount Desart Island. It runs every 30 minutes. A lot of seasonal campers, who are friendly & always willing to help with suggestions on where to go & eat. Great place for families and for pets. Nice & quiet at night.

CONS: REALLY small sites. We called ahead and asked to be put somewhere with a little privacy and were told we only had people on one side of us. Once at our site we were sandwiched in between two big rigs and when we went back to the office, they told us they made a mistake and that would be where we would have to stay. Bathrooms and out buildings are pretty dated but clean with pay showers. No trash pickup but dumpsters were within easy walking distance. Pool area very small and very crowded. No security/no checking; anyone can come and go thru this area.

We spent our 3rd year at Hadley's Point.

Pros: pool w the diving board. A lot of seasonal campers, who are friendly & always willing to help with suggestions on where to go & eat. Staff is super friendly. Great place for families. Lots of dogs around, that are all well behaved. Nice & quiet at night. And the bus stops right there to bring you into town - you'll be in town in about 10-15 minutes.

Cons: sites are on the smaller side. If you can get over that, it feels a bit like an over-sized family reunion.

This was our first trip with our newly acquired camper. What a choice! The folks at Hadley's run a first rate enterprise and have a lot of pride in their operation. Everything was well tended to with plenty of maintenance personell. Our kids particularly liked the field where they made lots of friends and played well into the evening. I can't think of any other camping trips in which they even talked to other kids, let alone, exchanged phone numbers. This is a great place to stay in Acadia! The local (free) bus service is a quick ride to Bar Harbor or the many points of interest in Mount Desart Island. It runs every 30 minutes.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the field if you have children, they will make friends quickly.

At first our site seemed a bit weird being in the edge of a large circle, but it ended up being great! The staff was awesome and gave great suggestions. On Sunday we chose to go to their church service that happened to be in the middle of the circle we were camping in. It was amazing. We were only able to get a site without sewer connection, however they came with a big tank and sucked it out as scheduled. When we had a surprise early fill they came within 5 minutes of us requesting a dump. Overall, beautiful camping. Only downside, not right on water; but the rest made up for that!

I started camping at Hadley's Point 32 years ago with my grandparents. Now I travel with my family and friends. This is a great family campground where my kids can come and go without worry. There are great events throughout the summer. The bathrooms are immaculate - we recently stayed across from one of the bathhouses and the cleaners were spotted several times a day! The campground is one of the stops on the Island Explorer so you can travel to Acadia and to Bar Harbor without ever moving your car. This campground has been family owned and operated for generations and the staff is always very friendly. We were sad to leave yesterday and are already looking forward to next year!
