Lamoine State Park, Lamoine Island, Maine- 62 sites unserviced. You can make reservations here until Labor Day but not available or needed in the fall. Sites of different sizes and some with views of Frenchmen Bay looking out to Acadia. Many are not level. Located 8 miles south of Ellsworth with boating, swimming, hiking in a beautiful setting. Cost $32.70 for someone from another state. We have camped here many times and it was just a one night stay for us. Bathrooms are clean with hot showers. This is just a beautiful place to stay. Fishing boats leave the harbor every morning and you can watch them come back in with their catch. Sometimes you can buy a lobster or two right from the boats. Sunsets are beautiful and looking out you can even see Cadillac Mountain. 56 M is a beautiful site overlooking the bay! - gsnakehill

Loved our stay here. Some sites for big rigs closer to the entrance which are not shaded - two rows closest to water are quieter and shaded but for mostly smaller trailers. No hookups however they have added a dump station and potable water fill since the older reviews. Easy location for visiting Acadia and the rest of Mt Desert without the hustle and bustle. Would definitely stay again. - TCNG

We stayed for 4 days to visit Acadia National Park. No hookups, so be prepared for some boondocking. There weren't very many people, the campground was maybe only half full. It's right on the coast next to some docks. There were a lot of fishing boats moored out in the bay, and it was fun to watch them come and go sometimes. I'd much rather stay here than in an overcrowded National Park campground. - Rover Travels

Our rate reflects Good Sams discount. First, the good. The site was level. Second, the bad. The bill was wrong, someone was in our site, the cable would not work. We would not stay here again. - Pat and Rex

We are retired full-time RVers from S. CA traveling the USA in a 24' travel trailer. We reserved our 4-night stay through our RPI membership which provided us a discount. Maine campgrounds are very pricey. We required satellite reception so it was recommended that we pick a site near to the office. The pond is very pretty. The staff is friendly. There is a nice gift store. While in the area, we visited Main Street in Ellsworth. Nice town. - daviescj

Maine is beautiful this time of year. Campgrounds are really expensive, $600.00 for two weeks. We are at Patton Pond Encore Resort in Ellsworth, Maine. This park is advertised as a resort. A resort it is not. Resorts have things going on, entertainment, etc. This place even had outdoor toilets. More like a fish camp. It is an old KOA park. I should have known when we pulled in that when KOA gets out of a park, it is way outdated and not up to standards for today's parks. The problem was that they already had my money and a NO REFUND policy. The only good is that it is fairly quiet except on weekends when locals come in. It seems they bring in the whole family, and the place gets noisy. The dirt entrance road is about 3/4 mile long and full of potholes and wash boarding. You could damage your RV coming in. It is so dusty I had to wash our car before I opened the door. A posting on the internet said the road was this bad over a year ago. Nothing has been done to improve it. Our motorhome has a basement air conditioning unit. We had it running and it pulled in so much dust, we had to wash it out to make it work. I suggested to the office that Calcium Carbonate on the road would take care of the dusting problem after grading. The season rentals have all kinds of junk stored outside and under the units. The lots are small and really close together. Lots of large rock that makes it difficult to park. The place has ten showers, but five are out of order. The remainder were so dirty that I would not wash our dog in them. They have been out of order for over a three years. I confirmed the time line on the internet. The game room is locked most of the time. It is easy to tell that Thousand Trails/Encore is simply sucking all they can out of this park. - Santa P

We spent the summer in this campground (May 1st to Oct 15) for $2400.00. It was a delightful experience and we are looking forward to being there again next year. The owners reside on site and could not have been more friendly or helpful. The campground services include a propane tank filling service. - tweymouth

We had a very level pullthru site....Owner had to change our reserved site but gave us a free night for the inconvenience. Nice clean and quiet campground. Would stay here again if ever in the area. - Trucker 2
Jul 2016 - $60.00
This park is very clean. The interior roads are gravel and a bit dusty. The sites are gravel with excellent wifi and cable. My adjustable water regulator registered less than 40 psi and had to use the house pump to take a shower. The staff was excellent and offered great directions on where to eat and what to see. The nightly rate was a bit steep for its lack of amenities (only had an above ground pool) and the distance to the Acadia National Park/Bar Harbor area. - Michael47
Jul 2010 - $35.00
A nice small clean RV park. Sites and interior roads are gravel. Good 50 amp power, WiFi worked 99% of the time, and site T-6 was clear of trees so our satellite dish worked. The owners/managers were gone most of the time but that did not cause any problems for us. The location of the park is away from the noise and crowds. We camped here for a week in a big rig. The only complaint I have: there is a lot of road construction going on around Ellsworth and this caused some delays. That complaint doesn’t really have anything to do with the campground. We would camp here again. The $35/day rate included discounts. - pcguy

We stayed two nights. It was near season's end, and the place was a shambles and very untidy. We used Passport rate and so received a 50% discount. Had there been another location close by, we would have moved. We would not stay there again. - rhontrevham

We spent three nights here using as a base camp to visit the Bar Harbor/Acadia area. It sits back in the woods and because of the unpaved roads it was dusty. You could say it has two levels; the top is kind of an open field with little of no shade and the bottom part is shaded with lots of trees and quiet. We stayed on the bottom level and it was somewhat tight for my 34 ft 5th wheel but not a challenge. Not sure how old the campground is but it seemed new rather new because it had fresh cut trees and some of the lower sites had more than usual brush between them.. The site I had was nice and I had no problems with my hook ups. The restrooms were very clean and it had nice laundry facilities. Didn't seem to have much for kids to do. For the price $20 (Passport Campground) it was nice and close to the area's attractions and met our needs as a base camp. - pappytx

Open sites large and well spaced. Good interior roads and level sites. Only one bathroom for the entire park of 200 plus sites. WiFi practically useless it was so slow. - hehrb
Sep 2016 - $48.00
Nice park, handy to Ellsworth and Bar Harbor/Acadia. We had a good sized pull through but they had even larger ones that were huge too. Many seasonals along the outside perimeter. Main road was paved but very bumpy. Wifi was up and down on speed and reliability (wouldn't depend on it for working). Cell signal (Verizon) was 3 bars LTE. 1 trash location way at front, but they would pickup bags in front of your lot before 10am. Staff was friendly. There was a pool but we didn't use it. Price was ok considering location and we were there over Labor day week. - HomeOnWheels_US

We stayed here a week. Site was very nice, a lot of seasonals but everything is well kept. Our toad had a dead battery when we went to unhook and immediately someone showed up to give us a jump. We needed propane, which they have, but the hose wasn't long enough to reach to the driver side(have encountered this in numerous cgs), will give the office a call when we leave and someone will meet us at the propane tank.
CG hosted a Harvest Dinner at the pavilion, nice central location and covered. This was a complete meal, we just pulled in so we weren't prepared to bring anything.
Wifi is poor generally. Even in the off hours. - Wandering

Ok folks, Maine in the fall. Why are you here? The free trollies stops out in front of the park so you don't have to have a driving vehicle.
This is an Encore RV Resorts community and is located near the bridge leading to Mount Desert Island (MDI). The park is quite large with a variety of site types. Please note that some have hookups on left and some on the right. If it matters to you and you cannot cross your connections be sure you know what you are asking for.
Other reviewers have talked about the gravel road and dust. Yes, true, get over it. It is much better than dirt roads and potholes.
The waterfront sites are mixed with hookups; see above. The 300 series sites are fantastic with some sort of tree/wind break for a bit of privacy between sites. All will accommodate a 40-45 foot fifth wheel or class A but those class As have to work hard to get in if the site across the street is occupied.
NOTE: The 400 series sites on the water are tight. They tell you that so it should not be a surprise. Yes, you can get in and open slides but you are not going to put out awnings if they are mounted on or extend beyond your slides.
Waterfront premium cost premium $$$. Worth it to us but maybe not to you. Lots of other site options that don't cost so much.
Well maintained, great staff, I'd come here again for sure.
We enjoyed every hike we went on. If you are mature like us, pick up the guide for "Easy Day Hikes" and you will find plenty to enjoy. We have been here two weeks with one more to go. Love it. - Moe and Flo are on the go

We spent three nights here to begin a 32 day caravan through the Canadian Atlantic Maritimes. Nice park with different sections, our 22 coaches were all grouped in the middle.
Lots to see in the area, especially Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. - TwoCorners
Jul 2016 - $38.00
The nightly rate reflects a weekly discount for staying at this RV park for five weeks. This is a nice RV park right across the bridge from Mount Desert Island and Acadia National Park. Our site was a level, gravel pull-thru site with good hook-ups and a fire ring. There aren't many trees in the main area of the RV park, but that does make it easy for satellite reception. There was a good sized heated pool but it did not always seem very clean. The WiFi was decent and usually functioning. The RV park is on the Acadia NP shuttle route which made it easy and inexpensive to access Bar Harbor and the National Park. The access roads, within the RV park, are gravel which makes for some pretty dusty conditions. Paving of those roads would greatly improve the experience of staying there. There is limited recycling available within the RV park (Maine redemption recyclables only) and it is difficult to find full recycling services in the Bar Harbor/Ellsworth area. - Byron Bailey

This campground is located perhaps 3 miles from the entrance to Acadia National Park. The park runs a bus service by all the campgrounds and to and from the park, Bar Harbor, etc. which is very convenient. Driving through Bar Harbor is pretty tight in a big RV. This campground has pay showers (a pet peeve of mine). People here are very helpful.
There are 5 loops and they can help you figure out what you like. Loop D had some more private sites near trees but probably wouldn't accommodate very large RVs. - Cape Cod kayaker
Sep 2016 - $40.00
This campground is easy to get into, level sites, good WIFI and a bonus of the bus that will take you to town. The staff was very accommodating and helpful. We enjoyed our week at this campground. We appreciated the quiet evenings. - twotimes
Sep 2016 - $40.00
We camp here for a week while we visited Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. There is a free shuttle bus service that will take you from the campground to most points in the area (limited schedule after Sept 1st). In the area for big rigs the sites are close together. We had 50 amp electric and water. Electricity worked fine while water pressure was low but adequate. The park will pump out your black/grey water tanks for $12. The site was level. WiFi in the park worked OK during our time there. AT&T cell service was spotty. There is a small pool in the park and a small beach about 1/2 mile from the campground. Although we do not have kids there was a play area in the park. We were close to trees but able to get our satellite dish to connect to 2 of 3 DirecTV satellites. Got a couple of OTA stations. - Co-Mike

The name "Woodlands" is very accurate and descriptive. We had one of only 3 or 4 sites that was not heavily treed and shaded. This is the direct opposite of their sister CG (Oceanside KOA) about 1.5 miles away. We prefer this type of layout. The "forest" setting provided us a new found appreciation of star gazing. The trees blocked all outside sources of light so the view of the sky was spectacular. Only going to Cadillac Mountain could have been better. Since star gazing is what I remember most, you can rightly assume I have no complaints about the CG itself. This is where we'll be when we return to Acadia. - campiflo

This campground is part of a corporate pairing with the Oceanside KOA. This is mostly tent camping oriented. Our FHU site will very level. Electric, water and sewer worked correctly. WiFi was fine during the day, but slowed at night when the families returned from touring. Verizon and ATT, both data and voice was weak. You needed to step outside the TT to get a good steady signal. Campground staff are very friendly and you can get one gentleman going in a heart beat. Someone called him an Irishman, and now..... (Hopefully, someone mopped the floor in the laundry room by now.) - moderate camper

Staff was very friendly and accommodating. They always had a wave and a smile. The grounds were spotless. Site was level and grassy. Bathroom and laundry room were very clean. WI-FI was very spotty. Needed to walk to the office area to get it. Wish they were open later in the season, as we return to Maine in the fall. - Genny
Oct 2016 - $96.00
The facilities, grounds and surrounding area is very well maintained. The staff were very friendly and made our stay enjoyable. Lobsters/clams cooked every night on the grounds. "Pie Guy" drives through between 5-7p. Free bus service from the campground to many locations on the island and within Acadia park. The only down side is the prices keep rising every year. - Tony Burns

Good wifi, beautiful sunsets. Not very well signed for people entering, as they kept parking in front of our site and asked us where to check in. - Maltaman
Jul 2016 - $85.00
Friendly staff. Beautiful waterfront views if your site is on the waterfront. If not, you are in an overcrowded very tight campsite/no shade. Very little space b/n sites. We didn't have room to put up our usual canopy and our view was a closeup of the back of our neighbors RV and sewer pipes. We are used to more private/shaded sites so this was a challenge for us. But, looking beyond that we had hours of fun finding shells and creatures in the tide pools and the man cooking lobster right there at night was awesome and his prices were reasonable. The area of Bar Harbor and Acadia park is beautiful and super pet friendly! We would like to return but would make sure we had a waterfront site for the space and views! - tzumatto
Oct 2016 - $1.00
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. - Our-Wandering-Casa

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. - HomeOnWheels_US
