The campground is immaculate and I do appreciate that. However the bathroom/Rec area/laundry is locked up at all times, and you can't just walk in there (need a code for every door). They also CLOSE the entire facility from 11-1 everyday for cleaning: so you better get your shower and laundry in early (or late I guess). Not convenient to shut bathrooms down for so long every single day! The sites are better than most campgrounds out here, as far as size and are a little more spaced then the usual sardine can campgrounds. Again I have a however! The sites have nice little grass areas which are on a timed sprinkler system. We were sitting at the picnic table eating dinner and 5 sprinklers on our site began spraying full blast soaking us, our food, and our car and camper (window was open). The sprinklers went off again at around 11pm spraying full force against the trailer on both sides!! Is it necessary to water grass when someone is camped here?!? Also the traffic runs all night right next to campground so between that and the sprinklers sleep was not an option. I think the river was gorgeous, campground staff is attentive and friendly but the compulsive cleaning here is almost a negative! I am not a very negative person and absolutely appreciate the cleanliness, I just would have rather had dinner with my family and a good nights sleep!

Fabulous sites, wooded and shady. Staff amazing!!! Very helpful and knowledgeable. (We had an issue with our camper and the owners and staff were incredibly helpful!) The distance to Acadia and downtown bar harbor was convenient from Hadley Point and the campground is clean and has every thing you need! Great experience, absolutely love this place. Also a short walk and you are on the beach! I would stay here every summer if I could.
