Decent place, long-time staple, but that may be its downfall

First day, my wife was helping our 5 year old climb onto the float like the big kids. 5 minutes later, management came over and said, "I heard you were pulling my float in." No sense of customer relations, just rude. My wife clearly cannot move a float. Even if she could, shouldn't it be chained to…

Nice place to be

We've only been here a few days, but first impressions mean a lot. It was raining when we got here but our site was relatively level and qe were ok until things dried up and we could finish leveling.

Sites are spacious! Connections are well placed and in good repair. Most sites are…

Quant with awesome views

This is a great quant campground. It was built back in the 50’s but there are plenty of sites for those of us with large campers. The sites are right on the lake with gorgeous views. Some sites even have their own pier to sit out on and fish or swim from or simply watch nature. They rent kayaks and…

Great Campground

It is very quiet and there is 0 cell service! Perfect place with lots to do at the campground! Great location to just disconnect from the rest of the world!

Only downside was we went during black fly season, wait until they are gone to be able to enjoy it fully!

O.k. park, great area.

This campground is so-so but the Camden area of Maine is really pretty with a beautiful harbor, lots of paddling opportunities, and good hiking. This campground is fairly small with a few amenities like a swimming pool, clubhouse, volleyball and basketball courts. The pool is pretty small with some…

Beautiful View...

...but remember that sound travels over water. This is truly a stunning little spot and it was so peaceful, until it wasn’t. I snagged the best spot right on the waters edge on a platform. The night I happened to stay here I had a very noisy group of young adults show up around 9pm and were up…

Nice for tent camping

Clean, friendly with the best views of the beautiful Somes Sound. We rented a kayak at the campground and explored the sound. The camp site was close to the bus route which, will take you all over the Island. Overall a great place to stay. Look forward to returning and staying there again.

Pretty Nice

This is actually a pretty nice campground as long as you have the right expectations.  

First, most of the campsites are quite nice, with decent amounts of privacy.  Also, when I was there (although it was mid-week in September), the campground was very quiet, even though every site was full. …

Love this campsite

Due to covid19, it’s impossible to reserve the campsite in Acadia National Park. This campsite is outside of NP but it’s really close and easy to access everywhere. Very quite and nice place to enjoy the beautiful summertime. Also, the ocean is just in the campsite, even though the water is really…

2 1/2 Stars

Spent a week end of July. Good weather with nice breezes on a hill. Amenities a little old and tired but staff friendly and pretty quiet at night. Campsite was clean, tight to moderately spaced...a few sites have more space and nice. Small kids fishing pond, couple of small older playgrounds,…

Great place to camp and explore the area

Great campground. Staff is helpful, sites are clean. Definitely a tent friendly place. 90% of the sites are well shaded, and most have plenty of room. Do your research not all the sites here are created equal. Proximity to Acadia National Park, Southwest Harbor, and all the great things to do…

Our Favorite Campground

This is our favorite campground. Perfect sites. Raised tent landings. Beautiful views of the ocean/marsh. Kayaks for rent. Not too far from acadia National Park and Bar Harbor. Clean bathrooms. Well marked. Highly recommend.

Stay away from this unscrupulous campground

I have stayed at over 30 KOAs across the country. I am extremely familiar with the brand, and with their policies. While most campgrounds are individually owned and operated, they all abide by common policies and practices of the franchise for consistency of customer experience. Whenever I have…
