Stayed here over 4th of July weekend (Thurs-Sun) so the place was booked solid. It was one of the few places that still had openings when we booked just a month prior. We stayed at site 40 (tent site with water & electricity) and liked that it was more out-of-the-way than many of the sites so we didn't see a...

I've been attempting to make a reservation at Somes Sound View Campground for over a week now. I've emailed, called and filled out a reservation request online... With no response what so ever. Looks like we'll be camping at Smuggler's Den instead.

Campground has nice private sites we camped at No.42, we are tenters and value a little privacy, the sites are well laid out and private, most sites have water and electricity, thereis only one central ablution block but there are portable toilets situated throughout the campground which are clean and easy to use (having said that the toilet doors have...

This campground has a lot of tent sites. There are only a few campsites that will fit a large RV. We booked site 11a, and this was perfect for our 35ft 5th wheel. We were there the weekend/week of Memorial Day. The weekend itself, the campground was pretty full, but the rest of the week, we had the campground pretty...

I went here with a group of 6 and we got 2 sites next to each other (site #45 and #46) for July 4 weekend. We stayed for 2 nights and although I made the reservation late for that weekend, we still got a good spot. This was the only campground I could find that does not require 3 nights...

Loved this campground, so peaceful and close to everything we needed. A doe wandered right by without a care in the world. Camp staff was friendly and helpful. It was fun watching the lobster boats from the beach.

This was our first campground on our trip to Acadia and Mount Desert Island. We booked late and this was one of the only campground left, so we weren't expecting much. There were downfalls to the campground, but there were also some really great aspects. Our first impression of the campground was that, if you can pick your site, it...

This is our second time at SSVC. We went with 2 other families both times and have had a wonderful experience both times. We love that you can walk down to the Sound and sit at the dock and/or swim off the dock, the kids love the pool and we love that it's so close to Acadia NP. We'll return...

This was the first time in this area and luckily we booked this camping. We stayed at the "walk in" spot and it was huge. All camping sites were quite spacious, very well maintained and most of them have a nice view. The showers are 1 dollar (a token), but are clean and gives you 5 mins shower time. The...

We just got back from a camping trip to Mt Desert Island, staying 3 nights at the Somes Sound View Campground. It was a great trip! The campsite was large (we had a car and tent set up), the campground was quiet (the loudest part was the coyotes across the sound), the facilities were pleasant, and the staff was very...

“Tent sites right out by the road have a bit of road traffic at night. I like to be near the bathrooms and I chose my site accordingly.”
