Park is located just as you get onto Mount Desert Island. Good location for all sites on the island: Bar Harbor, Acadia National Park, etc.

Sites were easy to get into, services well located. Park is well laid out and easy to navigate.

Not having sewer maybe an issue for long stay. We were only 3 nights & dump station was easy to access on the way out. We camped at Mount Desert Narrows Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

We were able to get mail delivered here, and received a call from the office when our package arrived. Staff is friendly and helpful. The office/store has a nice selection of gifts and menus from nearby restaurants. Our pull through spot was level and had some shade. Unfortunately the rocks around our site and the road necessitated us backing out instead of pulling right out. We are a bit long (43') so this is understandable. Water pressure was fair. We had a full hookup, although this campground has many more sites without sewer than with. Dump site can snarl traffic around checkout time. Pump out service is also available. This park also charged a $4.00/day "resort fee". Good location for visiting Acadia NP and Bar Harbor. Can't speak to cleanliness of restrooms, showers and laundry as we did not use. We did notice that fire pits were not cleaned out when campers left, so new arrivals get whatever was there before. We camped at Mount Desert Narrows Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. We only stayed 2 nights but will definitely return. We had a nice view of the ocean from our site (356). The cable and free wifi worked very well.

For short stays: there is a dump station. Some sites are FHU but ours was water/elec/cable only, no sewer. Power was good. No issues. Ranged from 118-123 on my Digital meter over 2 days. We were here under Thousand Trails choice vacation (free stay for us).

MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A GOOD WATER FILTER! We had been in places not needing any filter, so our cartridge was out. The water here has very high iron content and came in very rust colored!! I installed our water entrance filter cartridge and that took care of it, cleared it up ok.

Some of the roads and turns into sites are a bit tight so be careful when maneuvering. We camped at Mount Desert Narrows Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

This park is just as you enter Mount Desert Island, a mile or two in on the left on Rt 3. It is very handy to Bar Harbor and everything in Acadia National park.

Cadillac Mountain is a must, especially for a sunrise or sunset.

Best shopping is back in Ellsworth where there's a Walmart and all the other necessities. Also, hit Helen's restaurant in Ellsworth for great seafood and wonderful deserts!

Deer Isle/Stonington is about 90 minutes away and worth a day trip.

But the pictures of the playground were obviously taken ages ago because it was old and broken down looking. Laundry facility was ok but 2.50 per wash and 2 to dry seemed pricey and 3/6 washers were out of order. Shower was awful. Not much hot water and essentially no shower head on shower. Camp sites were nice and level but not much room to park your vehicle. Over all not a bad place but over priced for what you get. Saw a few other campgrounds and they seemed nicer. Would stay elsewhere next visit. We camped at Mount Desert Narrows Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.

We had a site on the water but wasn't able to actually see the water because of the bushes that were in the way. We camped at Mount Desert Narrows Camping Resort in a Motorhome.
