I don't give too many tens but we really enjoyed this place. Old campground but very clean and well maintained. Pool, playground, and a huge field for the kids. We booked a premium site with concrete pad plenty of room. Quiet at night and the staff was really helpful. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Our stay at Smuggler's Den Campground was very nice. The people working there were very friendly and informative. I reserved online and received two e-mails within a day. One confirming our reservation and a more personal response. Our site was wooded and near the bathhouse. It was a small site and many in that area were placed very close together. That being said, it was quite and easy to get in and out of. The pool was very nice, but not heated. The bathhouse was clean and well stocked. Even with a large group of teen girls, my wife noted that the showers were well kept. The laundry facilities were also clean and convenient. The office has some basic essentials and lobsters. Yes, they had live lobsters for sale for a fair price and loan out pots for cooking. Probably the best feature of the campground for us is their hosting a stop for the Island Loop right at the office. Once we parked our car and trailer, we were able to use the FREE bus system to visit the island. This was a very nice addition. My family agreed that we would come back and use the campground again. Hopefully, the weather would be kinder and allow us to use more the campground amenities. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.

This campground does not honor Good Sam any longer, nor offer any discounts. Upon check in, I had to stand at the office counter and wait for the only clerk on duty to finish with a phone call from someone just asking about the area, wanting to pitch a tent for two nights. This went on for 15 minutes. I was finally able to half way check in, and the phone rang again with the same caller, with another 5 minutes on the phone with him. Polite thing would have been to put that person on hold, or ask to call them back and then finish up with me. I did not feel important at all when I gave him over 400 hundred dollars to camp in a premium RV site for the week. No quide to site, no brochure with helpful information, no site map. I finally had to request a site map later. The previous camper in our site left late, as we waited for them to leave. The campsite was a mess with food garbage in the fire ring, (that one of the work campers told us he would clean out and never did) some kind of spill on the concrete pad, and an obvious spill near the sewage connection. "Premium sites" are right at the entrance with a lot of traffic. Bath house clean, and well supplied, but very dated. The free island shuttle was a nice benefit to avoid Bar Harbor traffic and parking, but does come right through in front of the "premium" campsites. Obviously no pride in this campground. Most are tent campers and seasonals. For 60.00 a night...we won't be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
