Very helpful staff. Nice campground with open areas and trees. Sites are a bit close but this area is a high traffic area. When you need a place to stay here that is not an issue. Very well maintained grounds. We camped at Hadley's Point Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Acadia NP and Bar Harbor are the big attractions and lobsters of course.

We stayed here to visit Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. There is free shuttle bus service from the office. This is a nice family campground, although we do not travel with children we enjoy watching them play. We were in D section, which has campsites around the perimeter and a row in the centre. We were in the center area, site D-51. Our site was not as level as it should be, but our friends on D-50 had a level site. Although the office calls them camping in the field, in our opinion they are some of the best sites in the park. There is a large playing field in that area, and good space for children to ride bikes, play ball, and so on. 30A service and water, but no sewer. The park has a honey wagon service, but they also have a free dump station which we used. WiFi was good, but did not reach to our site, so we sat near the pool to pick it up. Very pleasant. The staff was exceptional, giving us hints on where to eat, things not to miss, etc. They keep the sites very clean, going to a site minutes after the occupants have checked out and putting the picnic table back out of the way to make it easier for the next campers to park, mowing if necessary etc. Fire rings are available if you want them. We were there at high season and park was kept full. Very convenient to visit Bar Harbor and the park by the free bus. Although there are no water view sites, we were busy enough that it didn't matter. We would return. We camped at Hadley's Point Campground in a Motorhome.

This friendly campground with a pool attracts families for happy times. Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park are a short drive, and also accessible via free shuttle bus. Good access via paved drive gave access to a level, grass site that was just big enough to accommodate our 37' MH; parking our towed car filled it up. Water and 30 amp electricity were conveniently placed; our site didn't have sewer. Free Wi-Fi accessible from our site worked well, but was very slow in the evenings. Bath facilities were close, plentiful, clean, and convenient, though showers require quarters. Laundry room was clean and convenient, though a bit pricey per load. Price was about what we'd expect at a popular destination like Acadia. We camped at Hadley's Point Campground in a Motorhome.

This was a very nice campground and the people that worked here were all very friendly. There were a variety of sites and only a few offered sewer but they had a honey wagon that you could sign up for to come by if you needed it. We were in a field and sometimes it was hard to differentiate where exactly your site began and ended. The showers were clean and the water was metered. It said 50 cents for 7 minutes but it felt like a lot longer than 7 minutes and never had to use more than 50 cents for a shower. There was a body of water within walking distance of the campground with spectacular sunsets. My son loved the pool at the campground which featured 12 feet with a diving board. The Island Explorer bus comes through the campground every 30 minutes which made it wonderful for getting around Bar Harbor and Acadia. If ever back in this area we will stay here again. We camped at Hadley's Point Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Stated 40 foot site, had to cut back 3 to 4 feet of tree branches and bushes to allow 36 ft 5th wheel to back in and be off the road. Sites were narrow and the sewer hook up of site next to you was inconveniently located near fire pit and picnic table. The previous person that was on lot had made big tire ruts in lot and when asked to fill with wood chips were told owners said that it would rot and only tried to stomp on ruts to fill. Fire wood was expensive and had to pay for showers. At the price you pay for a site you shouldn't have to pay for showers. Very limited TV reception. Laundry was expensive to use. Water pressure low. We camped at Hadley's Point Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Super clean. The staff is very friendly and meticulous in everything that they do. Also a great location with on the free island shuttle route. They were also very accommodating after we made a mistake on the dates! The only downside was that the Wi-Fi was pretty useless down in the pull-through sites. It was reasonable up near the office. Thankfully there was excellent Verizon 4G LTE coverage. We camped at Hadley's Point Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Basically grass and mud fields with hookups. Mostly very narrow paved access roads, but a few that are just mud when wet. Access roads need trimming top and sides to avoid scraping with large rig. Turn onto main entrance road is pretty much a blind 90 degree corner with no room for two rigs to pass. Pull thrus are tight for a 37' - not quite enough room to park toad sideways. Minimal inter-site spacing. Full hookups are 30 amp only; 50 amp are water and electric. Electric was sometimes so poor as to not be able to run a microwave. There is a honey wagon for $10. Water pressure a bit low (35 psi), Wi-Fi so-so (decent signal, but can be very slow), decent Verizon cell signal. We will look else where when next in this area. We camped at Hadley's Point Campground in a Motorhome.

After reviewing this park on line and their website I reserved a site in February for our August vacation. It had been raining on and off for about 12 hour when we arrived. The site (which we booked in February) was on the edge of a open field backing into trees. It was just wide enough to fit our motorhome ( no slide outs or awning) backing in my tires sunk 10 inches into the mud I was lucky to have gotten out with the help of a tow truck. I fine the other reviews of this park very puzzling having been there. I NO NOT recommend this park. If I could give it a less that a 1 I would.

Great place! Friendly staff and very clean park. Sites are a bit small but not a problem. Pool was great and a big hit with kids. Also very quiet by 10 pm. Guess all the walking at Acadia tired them out. Will be back one of my favorite campgrounds We camped at Hadley's Point Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This was a really nice family campground. The atmosphere here was very family and the staff was friendly. Yet some sites are close and some in a field need a little leveling required, but not to bad, Their was something about the campground that made it special. My kids enjoyed it as did we. It's not a 5 star high class campground, but everyone seemed to enjoy being here including us. Main roads are all paved in good shape, as well. The shuttle comes every 30 min for free and takes you to Bar Harbor or to the National Park Acadia, so you can park you camper and take buses all over the area for free. This was one of our favorite campgrounds on our Coastal Maine summer trip. We camped at Hadley's Point Campground in a Motorhome.

Positives: 1) the staff are some of the friendliest and most helpful you will ever meet; 2) very nice pool with diving board; 3) very well maintained grounds; 4) adequate water pressure and dependable power; 5) campground is right on the Acadia shuttle line--this makes transportation to most of Mount Desert Island possible. Negatives: 1) the only sites with 50 amp power service do not have sewer connections--this is partially offset by the excellent, dependable honey wagon service provided by campground staff. 2) WiFi needs a major upgrade. The only time that you had the possibility of accessing their minimal bandwidth was after midnight. Any other time of the day the WiFi was worthless. We camped at Hadley's Point Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Friendly staff, it was early in the season and they were busy getting ready for summer. Close to Bar Harbor and Acadia and other activities. The campground was well maintained and clean and they just added a section of new cabins for the season that are impressive looking. The full hookup sites were on the smaller side but that would not stop us from coming back again. We camped at Hadley's Point Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This park was was clean and staff was accommodating. I would rate however, as satisfactory. Entrance to campground is tight. It was congested during mid-day due to the close proximity of the pool and a lot of kids running around. Camp sites are lined up one after the other with not a lot of room between. Did not care for the layout. A lot of locals use this park which was a plus because they were helpful and friendly. We used our own bathroom and shower. Glancing at facilities they looked clean. Bus service to Bar Harbor was a plus. We camped at Hadley's Point Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We can't say enough about the staff here. They were very accommodating, hard-working and friendly. We stayed here for a week in a 27' travel trailer. There are limited sites for full hookups so reserve early. Stay for a week and get the 7th night free. We stayed 4 days in the S section with full hookup which was very quiet and had to move to the A section (E and W) by the pool when we added 3 more days. That was our fault because we first booked 4 nights and then added 3 more because we liked it so much. The free bus service is very useful, but if you stay at the front of the campground in section A it can be a little annoying with buses running in and out every 15 min. They do stop running at 10 PM. Section A is a little tight, but the rest of the campground has spacious sites. The sites are grassy and mostly level. The bathrooms and showers are clean. The laundry is a little expensive at $2.50 for a wash, and the dryers are $.50. There is a honey wagon that comes to your site for $10 and a separate dump station. It can get very crowded on the weekends, so arriving on Sunday and staying a week worked great for peace and solitude. The owner is on-site and tries very hard to make you feel welcome. We would definitely come here again and stay in section S. It is very convenient to all the attractions with great lobster pound restaurants nearby. We camped at Hadley's Point Campground in a Travel Trailer.
