$52 / night but we averaged $28 for 4 nights using Passport America. W/E30/I Beautiful level grass site overlooking a lake. Satisfactory open spacing between sites. Downtown Bar Harbor and Cadillac Mountain only about 20 minutes away. Only downside is that internet access was poor. Would definitlely stay here again!!! We camped at Mt Desert Narrows Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

Great location for 20 minute access to Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor. With the discount, it was a great rate to be so close to such prime attractions!

A very nice park with great wifi and cable tv. Sites are reasonably level and of adequate size. The restrooms and showers are a little dated but kept very clean...except when there are a large number of tent campers using them because it is hard to keep up with the traffic in and out. We were there Labor day weekend, thus lots of tents. A free bus to Bar Harbor runs frequently throughout the day. Beware of the heavy cruise ship days. Labor day four ships unloaded 7,000 passengers downtown. Had to walk in the street to get around. The park is very expensive but I got a 20% veterans discount. Would stay again.

Good location for visiting area. Expensive, but this is Bar Harbor in prime tourist season. Large campground with sites of varying size. Our site was pretty level, others were definitely not. Some waterfront sites, but not 50 amp. Sites are close, like all in the area. Good hookups, good 50 amp (hot during our stay so we were thankful) Decent WiFi. Pool was cleaned up while we were here. We didn't use, but it was busy. We camped at Mt Desert Narrows Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Acadia is a gem, but like all the NPs, it is being loved to death. Go early or late to avoid crowds and parking hassles. Good and free shuttle system will take you all over the island. We used it early to go to Bar Harbor for breakfast, look around as the stores were opening and then leave by lunchtime. Cruise ships arrive in the harbor most days and it does get very crowded.

This campground has a variety of campsites, including an impressive tent camping area right on the bay. There are also back-in water/electric sites on the water but they are packed in with neighbors right on top of each other. Up away from the water there's a large section of full hookup sites, some 30 and some 50 amp. Unfortunately for us, none of these sites were currently available to people who come in on the Trails Collection program. However, we were given a nice, grassy water/electric 50 amp "parallel parking" site near the activity center and pool. Really, no complaints. We had neighbors in front and behind us but there was room for parking, etc. Our front lawn was somewhat narrow with the road passing by. Again, no complaints. The pool is heated, making it nice even on cooler days. The staff was always friendly and helpful. We enjoyed free ice cream one afternoon and when I asked someone if my fire pit could be cleaned the fellow cheerfully stopped right then and took care of it for me. We really enjoyed having the Island Explorer Shuttle stopping right at the campground. Using the shuttles we could make connections to downtown Bar Harbor and most of the famous spots in the park. The campground WiFi was decent and several sites have cable TV. I had a weaker but usable 4G Verizon signal and got satellite TV with no problem. We camped at Mt Desert Narrows Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

My wife & I stayed here for 8 nights in our 35 ft 5th wheel that we hauled from north FL. Stay 7 nights & get the 8Th night free. We stayed at a pull through 2-way site with a view of the water. The front office staff were very nice & helpful. This is a big Park with lots of various options on what site you can stay at. Some of the sites are quite expensive, but our was fine. We really enjoyed our stay. A great place to enjoy Mt. Desert Island/Acadia NP from. We camped at Mt Desert Narrows Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a large park on Rt. 3 about 5 miles from Acadia. It is an Encore park and accepts Passport America which made the stay much more affordable that neighboring parks. There are all sorts of hook-up options in various combinations. I stayed in a water & electric site with little shade. It was a grass site that overlooked a beautiful bay. My site required multiple leveling blocks as it sloped side-to-side. The site had a fire ring and picnic table. Some sites were totally shaded, graveled, appeared level and had full-hook-ups. Interior roads are paved or gravel.

The swimming pool water was nasty my entire stay of six days, thus the 2 stars for cleanliness. The laundry was clean and the sites/fire pits were picked up. The free wife had multiple wireless connection points. The free Bar Harbor shuttle bus stopped at the park. It was surprising to see a car slowly navigating the park in the early evening selling homemade pies. It was soon followed by an ice cream truck. My rate doesn't reflect the actual rate I paid since I had a mixture of PPA and low & high season rates. We camped at Mt Desert Narrows Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

Oct in Maine, beautiful scenery, right on the water. 2nd day you get a discount.
Level lots, leaking water on several lots.
Had cable tv but I had to jury rig the cable and fitting to use it, the office didn't have a fitting so I used my work experience to get it working.
Bar Harbor and Arcadia National Park are beautiful. We camped at Mt Desert Narrows Camping Resort in a Truck Camper.

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 Mt Desert Narrows Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

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 Mt Desert Narrows Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This was the most expensive place we have camped in many years around North America. It was by no means special. The roads were in poor shape and the sites small. It was very over priced. It was a great place to stay years ago. We camped at Mt 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 Mt 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.

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 Mt Desert Narrows Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

We were very disappointed with Narrows. The sites were unclean with debris and small garabage remnents. All the roads were gravel and dirt which created dust and noise as campers drove through the campground. There were NO garabage cans at the sites. (The dumpster was so far from the campsite, that people deposited their trash in the bathrooms.)

No sewer connection, and a charge to use the dump station. We paid for 5 nights and left after 3. Far too expensive for what we received in amenities. We camped at Mt Desert Narrows Camping Resort in a Motorhome.
