Stayed for 8 days. If you book a week you get a night free. Good place, nothing fancy. We heard road noise but oh well, after hiking each day it did not matter. Site was clean, Owner is very nice. We had a good verizon signal. Satellite could not acquire due to the chestnut tree. No biggie, watched dvr when not out. - KodiTzu

Could be a nice cg as it is on the water with some nice views. Big rig fhu sites are very close to Rt 1 so quite a bit of traffic noise. Not too bad though. We had a very large site with a water view so that made this week manageable. 2 dog areas but they are just open spaces with a path mowed through them. No play room and definitely not off-the-leash time. Trash smell was horrible and not picked up until Saturday. Lots of handmade signs telling you "No Rugs on Grass". There were only weeds growing through gravel so I don't understand the reason for the signs. Owner was very pleasant and helpful. Runs an antique shop on the site. My take is that the cg provides income to support the preferred antique business. Fire pit and picnic table were in good shape. - FT Travelers3

This is a simple RV/Tent campground on a parcel between Rt 1 and a narrows off of Frenchman Bay with a view of Mts. Cadillac and Champlain. Each site is priced differently based on amenities and are reasonably level with minimal adjustment. Back-in sites along the entrance road have sewer, those in a loop around the grassy meadow do not. Most around the loop are pull-throughs. Tent sites were mostly in the trees. There is a shower house and a dump station. Voltage and water were good. A/C & electric heat are an extra fee; A/C is probably not needed for most of the season. Wi-Fi was accessible from the sites closer to the front and top of the loop, not closer to the shore; speed was adequate for email, etc. We could get OTA channels 7.1 & 7.2, but the antenna had to be pointed correctly. We were on the ring and could see the water. Some mornings are perfect for watching a sunrise over Mt. Cadillac, others completely in fog. Sometimes a distant fog horn is heard. We didn't notice any traffic noise from Rt 1. While the campground rules are pretty much standard, they have felt a need to post them around the campground similar to Burma Shave signs. The parallel sites were about average in proximity to neighbors; some were quite large. The prices are not out of line for this popular region. - Trailbuddy

The pull thru site we had was the longest pull thru site we have ever had. Site was level. 50 amp service was good, leg 1 - 122v and leg 2 - 122v. Water pressure was 42 PSI. Sewer connection about 6 inches above ground level. New picnic tables. There is free WiFi provided by Tango Internet. Performance was good with 5.00 Mbps download, 7.53 upload and ping of 145 ms. Acadia NP Satellite reception was not a problem. Good paved roads throughout campground. Very quiet. Although there is a game room and a playground this campground appears made up of mostly 55+. Lots of seasonals 'snow birds' here. Most seasonals leave their RVs by the end of October and head south for the winter. Campground is well maintained, although a bit on the older side. Grass was mowed and overall the campground is clean. - Rufas

A bit expensive but worth it. Very nice, professional & helpful staff. Very large, clean, well laid-out park. Limited over the air TV, no cable. Sites were perfectly level. Lot's of space. We'd come back without hesitation. - TPDBOB8687

Nice cg near Acadia Nat'l Park. I don't remember what price we paid with out Good Sam's discount. Wide, looping roads with seasonal and transient people. People were friendly. The national park and Bar Harbor is why people come. While this is a nice park there is no dog area or anything else really special. Location, location, location. - FT Travelers3

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

Nothing good to say about this park. Crowded camping. Poorly managed, unlevel sites. - Tomandmrss

We always have CG reservations when we travel so we were nervous about planning a full week at a CG that doesn't take reservations. Luckily that wasn't a problem in mid-September. There is lots of turnover at this CG and probably always a site available but not necessarily the type of hookups you may want. We thought the 50amp sites were not at all scenic, so we went with 30amp/water/sewer which was fine. Full hookup pull-through sites were very popular and that section was almost always full so we would recommend getting there around 9-10am as folks are leaving. Other sections in the CG had lots of availability. No seasonals that we could see. This campground is nothing special but it had everything we needed, reasonable prices, and is very convenient to Bar Harbor and Acadia NP. We loved that the Island Explorer (a free bus that runs throughout Acadia NP and Bar Harbor) had a frequent stop at the CG. The perimeter roads were good, but the interior roads were tight for 5th wheels. We thought Site B7 was one of the nicest, wide pull-through sites at the CG. We were in C7, and that site was good too. The few "ocean view" sites were quite close together and frankly the view is pretty far out there. The laundry facility was clean, large, and only $1 for wash and $1 for dry. - Smashcamp
Sep 2017 - $40.00
Rate of $40.00 per night is for full hookups, no discount offered, payment is cash or check only - no credit/debit cards. There is an ATM in the lobby. All previous reviews appear accurate. Sites vary throughout the campground, many are in an alcove, heavily shaded and private that would typically be found in a state park. Our site and patio area was gravel, on an incline with a splattering of grass around and open to the sky, no shade, easy access for satellite dish. Hookups were on the left side of the RV and worked as intended. Each site had a picnic table and fire ring. Verizon and T Mobile had a weak signal, Sprint a bit better. Free scheduled shuttle to surrounding area and downtown. Did not use or checkout bathrooms/showers or local WIFI. All employees were very friendly and eager to help with directions and suggestions. Fair value for area, we would stay here again. - ECM1

Very nice park. We were there with 2 other campers and were next to each other. Spent 8 nights. No cable over air spotty. . - Long Island Mac

The bathrooms across from our camper were absolutely spotless! The showers were not very close to our campsite so we did not use them. The folks were friendly and check in was easy. You can take a short walk to a beach and watch the sun set.
The campground is 15 miles to a Walmart, 10 minutes to Bar Har and 15-20 minutes to the visitor center in Acadia National Forest. We would definitely stay here again. - Lil camper

This is one of the least expensive campground on the island. Keep telling yourself that and you won't be disappointed. We were in a W/E site in the "B" loop. Site was level and had more space than the other sections. We had two low voltage alarms during our stay. The bathrooms in "B" loop were clean but the stalls were so short that it was very uncomfortable to use. Can't comment on the WiFi because it doesn't reach the "B" loop. I don't think we will return to this campground. - Larry 0908

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

We chose this park because it was close to Acadia but still a reasonable drive to Camden. We had a pull-through site that was level and spacious. The park was well maintained and quite. The staff were extremely friendly and made us feel welcomed. - HaveDieselWillTravel

Having been welcomed on arrival after a long drive with a such a pleasant greeting we settled in on our very nice campsite. This was our first time at this campground and was really surprised by the couple of negative reviews and found they couldn't have been further from the truth in our experience. Our little dog was also welcomed, as we were familiar with almost all campground pet rules this campground was no exception all rules were designed to be considerate of all other campers meaning assurance of a quiet and pleasant stay. We stayed for a total of 7 Days and enjoyed each and every one. - Onebrit

About a mile outside of Ellsworth and away from the tourist craziness. Sites were gravel and pull through with water/50/30/sewer and cable TV. Front section sites were unshaded and suitable for satellite users. More shaded sites in the back. Most campers seemed to be seasonal or semi-permanent as there was little transient traffic. Restrooms were very old but well kept and clean...could use bench/seat in showers and more hooks! Pool is a joke. Just a 4ft. deep above ground backyard pool! Park is nothing special at all and not even scenic. Just a place to drop the hook when exploring Acadia and Ellsworth...but everything worked fine and the front office was friendly. Would return again. - Camaraderie

We stayed here as a starting point to a RV Tour down the East Coast. We had a select pull thru spot. It was level gravel with plenty of room for our slides and our tow car. The airport noise was a bit much but not bad enough to not stay here. We walked to a lobster pound down the street and had great lobster. If you have a clear day, make the drive into Acadia and go to the top of Cadillac Mountain. Also go to Jordan's Pond and have the AMAZING POPOVERS!! Worth every cent. - Weld304

We paid extra for a waterfront site - I wouldn't do that again at this park, I would grab a traditional site elsewhere. The water and beachfront is accessible to all, and sites along the water are tight and at a premium. Not much for kids to do there except ride their bikes - pool was closed for the season (expected so not a big deal) but no playground or field, etc... close to everything so that part was nice. We were fortunate to get the site we did (double site) but others along the water were much narrower... approximately 16' is what I paced off for width on others in the 300's. Well maintained park and roads. - Matt7571

We don't need or use any of the amenities as we are just two old people in a very large, self contained tin can. This park is big rig friendly. Very safe entrance and exit as there is a traffic light and a very wide, level access road. We were very pleased with the park and staff. Gravel sites but raked level between every stay. Stay here and take the bus into the park. - Lama79

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. - SunStar203

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. - SubVet SSBN619

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
