Bar Harbor Campground
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 June 2017

The folks who run this campground are onto something with their "no reservations" policy. I totally love this concept and wish more campgrounds, and hotels, would do the same. I wish I could say my plans are always carved in stone, but, like so many of us, life changes day to day for me. How wonderful it was to discover this campground. We were staying not too far away at another campground that was very nice but decided to take a tour of Bar Harbor Campground on our way to Acadia National Park. I am so glad we did! The campground is beautiful, sites are quite roomy and well laid out. The playground, pool, and other amenities are beautiful and clean. The best part, other than being able to pick your site from whatever is vacant, are the prices; they're are crazy reasonable. So much so that we opted to leave our RV for a few nights so we could go home and catch up on some work before returning for another week! We have a beautiful, full hookup site with a wonderful ocean view taking up the entire back window. There is nothing behind our site and that view other than a field of blueberries. It's like Heaven on Earth. The staff are just wonderful. Very friendly and helpful. We take the Island Explorer to wherever we want to go. There is a GREAT ice cream shop within a short walk of the campground as well as a barbecue restaurant. Mini golf is a short walk away as well. I can't say enough about this incredible campground.

Room Tip: 50 amp,water, electric, sewer sites with ocean views at the back of the park are great for big rigs.

We have been traveling around Northeastern states and stopping wherever we would end up. We have 2 small tents and don't use electricity. This campground was great! Clean coin showers, heated pool, nice scenery, friendly staff and reasonably priced. It is also close to Acadia National Park and the town center. We will come back next time we are around there.

Bar Harbor Campground met all of our tent-camping needs with large, level, quiet, family-friendly campsites, super-clean restroom/shower facilities, easy to find location that is close to Bar Harbor. We stayed 2 nights and the staff was very helpful giving us directions and recommendations on how best to enjoy the area, especially during peak tourist season. Internet connection was slow, but we were only interested in using it for travel information and were always able to connect when we needed it.

Bar Harbor Campground is one of the cleanest, quietest and family friendly campground.
I spent Labor Day weekend with my daughter and grandchildren. Had to get the feel for nature and sleep in a tent. The low 50's temp upon rising... BRRRR... but worth it!
The restrooms, pool and campsites are clean.
Everyone that works there are super friendly and helpful.
Most of all a spectacular view of the sun rising.....
That in itself was worth the stay !
