“Very wooded, Close to Ocean, On bus route”

Reviewed Oct 19, 2018

Overall Rating

Stayed 7 nights at Blackwoods in mid-Sept of 2018. Our site was real shady and a fairly un-level site. Our only power source is solar so that was a challenge to keep the batteries charged for 7 nights. Positives far out-weigh the negatives. On the positive side: About a 5-10 minute walk to the ocean, plenty of clean bathrooms in t... more

“Convenient to activities making it easy to see MountDesert Island ”

Reviewed Jul 23, 2018

Overall Rating

Sites aren’t level and lack privacy screening between sites but the campground is so convenient to Acadia & also on the free Bean bus route to get around Island. There are no services- electric or cell service. Many RVs using generators due to no electricity which can be noisy. Many sites were small and larger RVs may not fit. Bathroo... more

“Cozy, huge, awesome location, and friendly neighbors. ”

Echoing off of most reviews here - this is a great campground for visitors to Acadia National Park. With over 300 sites to choose from, the campground effectively accommodates the busy traffic that can besiege the park but never felt overly crowded in late June. Not sure if this changes in July/August though. The campground is a sh... more

“Tight spots, right near all the main park attractions”

Reviewed Jul 25, 2017

Overall Rating

They pack 'em in here, but spots are easy enough to maneuver and you're right in the park with bike access to the park loop, free bus service, or a quick drive to the Jordan Pond side entry. A little steep for dry camping, and expect to use your generator since the trees shade out solar in almost all spots, but there's nothing else in ... more

“Well shaded sites”

Reviewed Jul 12, 2017

Overall Rating

Wooded area with semi private sites. Bathrooms were very clean. About a mile bike ride or drive to private showers ($2 for 4 minutes). The free park shuttle bus came right to the campground- we used the bus system quite a bit to get around the island. We highly recommend the bus system and blackwoods campground!

“Woodsy wonderland with the smell of salt air and balsam.”

Reviewed Jun 03, 2017

Overall Rating

Had a wonderful stay In a spotlessly clean campground with walking trails leading down to the sea. There are no hookups which I've realized now is probably not a good thing because you are subject to others who can't seem to survive without power all day. Annoying!

“Great basecamp while exploring Acadia”

Reviewed Feb 25, 2017

Overall Rating

I stayed here in early October. I did grab one of the last few spots available, but it was nearly full. If you call before noon to check availability, you'll get yelled at. I liked this place, but I really only came here to sleep one night so I sadly don't have any site recommendations. Neighbors are very close, but trees do a half-dec... more

We reserved two nights at Blackwoods via the recreation.gov website for mid October 2016 (no hookups available). We had a late arrival (after 9pm) but called in advance to see what the instructions were. She told us on the phone our site # and to come check in the next morning. Our site was a long narrow back in site (which we saved... more

“Great woodsy feel in the heart of Acadia National Park”

Reviewed Mar 13, 2015

Overall Rating

There are only two National Park Campgrounds, and this one is my favorite of the two. Close to Bar Harbor and to the most popular parts of the Park.

Very wooded campground that can accommodate most trailers and RVs. There are no hookups, but the facilities are clean and friendly.

Location is pretty central, and convenient.
