We arrived late at night (more like early morning) but were able to easily find our reservation and camp site. We only stayed for one night, but I would love to go back and spend more time there. The sites were a good size and the facilities were clean and it was easy to get to one from any campsite....

Stayed here in August 2016 for 4 nights. The campground itself is very clean. The sites are really close together, but it's not that bad. Each site does get a good amount of room to spread out. The bathrooms were clean, although depending on which site you were staying at some did require a short walk. The campground is cool...

My wife and I went camping without reservations during the week before Columbus Day. We got a very nice, somewhat private site, close to a bathroom. The staff at the gate was very helpful, gave us some ideas for hiking, and places to stop by car. The campground is close to the water and actually very well taken care of....

Stayed in this campground for 2 nights in the middle of September. Everything about it was great. The facilities and camp sites were clean. We had 2 tents on one site and there was plenty of room. Fire pit and picnic table were on each site. The sites were nicely spaced and the Rangers were very pleasurable. The proximity to...

It's a nice campground with access to bus and easy walk to beautiful ocean views. Tenting sites are very close together in A loop and afford minimal privacy. Raccoons are abundant at night, so secure all items. The pay showers are right outside of the camp and are $2 for four minutes. That facility (not run by NPS campground) was...

This is a really nice campground. The sites are set back in the trees and your neighbor is separated from you with the trees. The camps quite down early in the evening so it's a nice getaway. There was a group of middle school kids that came into the group campsite and while they were quite noisy at meal time...

Camped here for 2 nights and was pleasantly surprised by the location. A short drive from Bar Habor downtown and there is a hiking route directly from campground to Cadillac Mountain and back (south ridge). Campground was $30 a night and $25 per car to park anywhere in Acadia. It was clean and sites were a decent size, some closer...

Amazing - stunning park, great trails, bring your bike for the carriage paths and use the free bus system to get around, get up to Cadillac Mountain (no bus to that spot). Know before you go - the campground has flush toilets in well placed modern AND VERY CLEAN buildings but no hot water and the button for the cold...

The bathrooms at this campground were cleaner than some restaurants we have been to. Everything was very well maintained. We were in the B loop, which does not have any large RV sites- it is mostly tent campers. There were a few loud groups but overall quiet and peaceful. Very nice!

This is a sweet little gem of a campground. The sites are compact but this allows for more sites in a popular park. Despite their smallness they feel rather large and are well spaced and I didn't feel like I was on top of folks despite the campground being full each night we were there. The gravel can be a...
