(Rte. 3, Salisbury Cove location) Very nice campground with ocean view & spotless bathrooms. Paved roads, gravel sites, nice trees, and quiet. Good water pressure, but $.25 for 4 minutes in a too-small shower stall. On the bus stop for the free bus (provided by Lands End) to the town of Bar Harbor and to Acadia National Park. We camped at Bar Harbor Campground in a Motorhome.

Spotless bathroom, good water pressure in shower, but small shower stalls. Ocean view, paved roads, gravel sites, nice trees, and quiet. This is the Bar Harbor Campground near Salisbury Cove on Rte. 3 (there are several campgrounds named Bar Harbor). We camped at Bar Harbor Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Gotta go to the nearby national park (and downtown Bar Harbor) on the free buses provided.

This is a very large, well run heavily wooded park with many amenities. There are limited 50 amp sites so reserve if you need one. Everything you need is here. Staff is great, park is very secure, and the entrance to Acadia is only a couple miles down the road. If you like to walk, all roads are nicely paved and it's about a 1 mile walk around the perimeter inside the park. Water view sites available, but bring your binoculars, it's far. Like to swim? Beautiful large pool heated to about 80. Laundry has 8 washers and 8 dryers, and is $1 wash and $1 dry, very reasonable. Need propane? It's here and reasonable. No cable, but we picked up many stations with the digital antenna. Only one negative comment. All sites have been graded and graveled, but not leveled, so you need to level your rig. No big deal. All in all, a great place to stay. We would surely return here! We camped at Bar Harbor Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a nice campground and the closest to Acadia National Park, and it is reasonably priced. They do not take reservations or credit cards. You drive in, pick your spot, set up and then register. Lots of types of sites are in the park. The best choices are right about check-out time, at noon. We had a water, sewer, and 30 amp site, which all were good. The restrooms were clean and the laundry was too (only $1 to wash, $1 to dry/load). Some sites are in the open and some in the forest. Leveling can be challenging. We had a site near the laundry and the free Wi-Fi worked well, as did our Verizon data device. No cable, but we got some local stations with antenna. The campground is on a mountain top and you can see local water from spots in the park, but it is not waterfront. Local free bus service takes you to the National Park and to Bar Harbor throughout the day. We liked our spot and the campground. We would stay again. We camped at Bar Harbor Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Location, Location, Location says it all. Sites are mostly gravel, but none are level, front to back, and side to side. The side-way slope is away from the sewer hook-up, thus you can't completely empty. Bring boards. We stayed here before with a fifth wheel, so level was not as much of an issue. All roads are paved and smooth. Sites open or wooded, your choice. I really like the no reservation policy. Wi-Fi worked very good at our site. We camped at Bar Harbor Campground in a Motorhome.

Loved it. Great roads, large sites, nice views, reasonably priced for the area. Everything works and is well maintained. Very convenient to Acadia National Park. Free shuttle bus to Bar Harbor and to the NP picks up right at the campground entrance. You can connect to other routes that run all through the NP, to other towns and campgrounds, etc. Rate was $44/night for FHU 50 amp. Pay for 6 nights, 7th is free. And you can extend any time you like. You don't have to pay for the full week in advance. Will stay again. We camped at Bar Harbor Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We stay here every September. Apparently the word has gotten out about it being the closest to Bar Harbor and Acadia. This year all full hook up sites were taken. They don't take reservations so you get what is open. Sites do need leveling but the view at the top of Frenchmans Bay is breathtaking as are the sunrises. We camped at Bar Harbor Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Convenient location to Acadia NP & the rest of the island, wide variety of good-sized sites, attractive wooded area, some traffic noise on side of park closest to highway 3, but quiet on north side of park where I stayed. Office suggests spots, but you pull in first come, first serve, then go back and register. Office open reasonable hours, 8am – 9pm when I was there. Rolling terrain, sites have been somewhat leveled, but still need moderate amount of leveling for RV's. Good WiFi signal, nice laundry. I'd definitely stay here again.

We spent a week here and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The CG is located on Mt. Desert Island about 4 miles or so from the town of Bar Harbor, and a couple of miles from the entrance to Acadia NP. This is a very large and older campground. We chose a larger pull through site on a hill, and had a little difficulty leveling. Ours was 50 amp FHU and were pleased with the service. Laundry room was clean an inexpensive. Lobster Pound across the street or back toward Trenton a few miles (yum!) Water front doesn't mean water access in this case. While you can see the water from some of the sites and the pool/playground area, it's not accessible, but a very nice view either way. We will try to stay here again next time we are in the Acadia area. We camped at Bar Harbor Campground in a Motorhome.

If I could give this park an 11 then I would. Great people, Great sites. Best of all, just imaging going for a walk in the early morning watching the mist rising off the ocean below while you pick Blueberries to put in your pancakes for breakfast. In my view this is the Best park in Maine. You drive through the park pick your site, set up camp, and go to the office to pay for your stay. If you chose to add extra days to your stay, no problem as the site is yours till you have to leave and you won't want to leave. We camped at Bar Harbor Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice campground, very close to Acadia Park. Their system is a bit different where you go and find the site you want and then return to pay for it. A map was provided with which sites were open at the time of arrival to make this easier. The staff was friendly and helpful. The sites were nice sized.

Great location. Rate is for 30 amp FHU. No reservations - drive and pick your site, setup then pay. We arrived around 10am on a Sunday and had a choice of pull throughs by the road or a pull through on top of the hill. Although the latter are on a slope, they have more ambiance and are larger. Our site was level side to side with slope front to back. Pay 6 nights for 7, cash or American check only. Clean bathrooms and showers (25 cents for 5 minutes). Clean laundry (cold water only) and only $1 each for wash and dry. Wi-Fi has a strong signal but very slow to download; fast to upload. On the shuttle bus route. Dog friendly. Friendly campers and work campers. Pick wild blueberries at top of the hill. Gravel sites surrounded by grass. Beautiful tent sites in the woods. Mix of decent looking W/E sites. We would return if coming to this area. We camped at Bar Harbor Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Excellent grounds. Well suited for tents and all types of RVs. Some sites wooded and some open with distant ocean view. Generally, very warm and welcome feeling while driving through C/G. Showers and toilets are very clean and have lots of water pressure while using showers. CASH only or checks accepted here. Wi-Fi excellent. Level sites with fire rings. Adequate room for big rigs. Staff in office helpful and friendly. NO reservations accepted. First come first serve basis. Check into office, go set up on available site and return to office to pay for number of days stay. With a 6 day stay, the 7th day is free. Lots and lots to do in local area. Much fun to be had. We would stay here again. We camped at Bar Harbor Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground does not except reservations or credit cards. There are 7 sites that have a distant ocean view from the hilltop, and about 50 other pull throughs with no view that have 50 amp, water and sewer. There is no cable. Fifty amp pull throughs are on the hill and are on a pronounced slope. Fifty amps sites by the main road are much more level, but have no views or ambience.. This is the most popular site in Bar Harbor because of the price. Unfortunately, it is a long way to come without a reservation, because in season you probably will arrive to find there is nothing available. We camped at Bar Harbor Campground in a Motorhome.

Campground for us was in a perfect location. Only two miles to the entrance to Acadia National Park. Bar Harbor is 7 miles away and there is a free shuttle bus that only takes 15 minutes to get to the center of Bar Harbor if you do not want to drive. We picked one of a handful of 50 amp sites. On top of the hill next to the laundry are the prime sites but only seven that have great views of the bay but these are all back in. They have a nice mix of open sites and heavily wooded sites. TV antenna can only pick up a few channels. As mentioned they do not take credit cards or reservations. When you arrive they let you go through the campground to pick out your site before you pay. We would definitely return. Office is run by friendly workampers who have many years experience from working here. We camped at Bar Harbor Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
