“Good campground to explore Acadia National Park”

Reviewed Oct 07, 2018

Overall Rating

We wanted to get a site at Blackwoods State Campground for location and price, but unless if you reserve it months in advance good luck. We ended up coming here with hundreds of others because it was the only spot available in this crazy busy area. It is a large campground with hundreds of sites. Plenty of full hook ups, water and ... more

“Great place to camp when visiting Acadia NP.”

Reviewed Sep 19, 2018

Overall Rating

Really loved this Campground. Our site had water and 30 amps. No sewer but the site was relatively close to the showers and restrooms which were kept very clean. I really like the sink outside for doing dishes. This helped keep the gray water to a minimum. Our loop had sites that were very wooded although there are other sites in the o... more

We stayed at Seawall campground while visiting Acadia National Parks south side and we stayed at this privately owned park to visit the north side of the park. You cannot get reservations it is first come first serve. Unless you are going to be here on some 3 day weekend don’t worry about a spot. We were her 13-16 Jul 2018 and had no p... more

“Special”

Reviewed Sep 18, 2017

Overall Rating

This is a great place! Some sites have great water views, most have none. Wonderful smoked meat restaurant on site. Laundry is good and cheap. 10 minutes from Acadia. The bus runs all day and pickup/drop off is at the camp site. NO RESERVATIONS is scary but was no big deal (went second week of Sept.).

“Worth the gamble!”

Reviewed Sep 15, 2017

Overall Rating

The campground is first come, first served and has a seventh night free deal. Cash or check only. With a lower cost per night, free wifi, full hookups and a chance for a water view, we decided to take the risk and show up. We had several options to choose from, but that wouldn't have been true during our stay. We saw some pretty big r... more

“Great place to stay if visiting Bar Harbor!”

We stayed here for our time at Bar Harbor and loved it! When you arrive, they tell you to drive around the campground and find the spot that you like. Then you head back to the office to tell them which site you selected. They do not accept credit cards for payment. Cash or check only. And they do not take advance reservations. The... more

“Wow, what a great find”

Reviewed Jul 31, 2017

Note that the rate above was for 7 nights. Technically the 7th night was free. We pulled in on a Monday just after noon. The helpful staff told us that she thought two water view sites were still available. She was right. I'd give K11 5 stars! We had space between our neighbors and a nice water view. After you pick your si... more

“A go-to spot for Bar Harbor and Acadia NP.”

It's nothing glamorous but they don't accept reservations which means it's easy to get in during high season. The staff is friendly and the place is clean with an excellent location. They had everything we needed including close proximity to Bar Harbor/MDI, Verizon LTE, showers, cheap laundry and a dog area. This will definitely be wh... more

“Great & close to Bar Harbor & Acadia NP.”

Reviewed Jun 28, 2016

Overall Rating

Firstly this is a cash only park & they do not take reservations. Our rate was for water & 30 amp. As there are no reservations they tell you there are plenty of sites which is true but many sites may be too small for you to actually fit into which does cause some problems. The sites vary in size & accessibility as people can pick ... more

One of my favorite campgrounds on Mount Desert Island, this is the closest campground to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park and a stop on the free "Island Explorer" bus service. While there are two National Park campgrounds on the island that offer many wooded and private sites, those campgrounds are dry. Bar Harbor campground offers ... more
