5 Parks near Harrington, Maine
Aug 2016 - $27.00
We arrived to a beautifully maintained campground. The sites are on grass with a hut on most sites for the picnic table. Full hook ups are on most of the larger sites. Our site had no sewage but the dump station was very near by. Also a pump out service is provided for a fee of $10. WI-FI is excellent, AT&T was good. Dish satellite is possible. The tent sites were the best I have ever seen. They are tucked away in a secluded area with plenty of privacy between sites. The only negative is for those with small kids, no playground; the campground is oriented toward adult enjoyment. Hiking paths are mowed for casual strolling around the campground.
We enjoyed our lobster dinner as served by the owner. It included plates and bowls and all the utensils need for cracking shells. Outstanding meal.
We stayed for five days. - Nautilus

The biggest selling feature at this park - well, two features. First, the setting is on a large bay of water and the sunsets err on the side of outstanding. There is a little path cut through the property to walk along the bay, with benches to sit on and watch the day fade away. And some huge rocks to climb out on without any trouble for even better views.
The second feature is the owner of the park will deliver fresh cooked lobster to your door, still hot, complete with utensils and plates, for $8 a lb during lobster season.
This is a small campground, yet only a handful of spots have sewer hook-up. Keep this in mind if you are planning on a long stay; you'll have to use the dump station for sure.
Bathrooms were "ok", but the sinks were not cleaned every day or even every other day, and the shower matts likely had not been picked up and cleaned under in months. So we showered in our RV since we were there for four days, and two of those we were on a wildlife cruise.
Basic place, with no amenities outside of that walkway along the edge of the bay. Sites are nice, plenty of room, and each with a covered picnic table - a little wooden roof covers each one, so if it does rain, you can still eat outside.
If you don't already know it, the skeeters in Maine are relentless, but we did manage to squeeze in that lobster dinner at our picnic table without being bothered. But get close to that bay and get out the DEET!!
Also, keep in mind that there is no cable, and tv reception is non-existent. The office/store rents DVDs at a buck a night; movie selection very limited. The owners know the area well and can point you to excellent sight-seeing and assorted Maine things to do. We used this as a base to take a morning boat trip to Seal Island to watch puffins from a blind. Worked out well. Oh, and they just paved the access road from the main highway to the campground!! A real blessing given the awful Maine roads. - RobsRVPicks

A hidden gem on the Maine coastline. Long level pull thru. Good water and electric. Management excellent. Still delivers cooked lobster to your door @ $9/lb. Excellent view of the waterway. Will return!! - Johnr7

We had planned to stay for a week but ended up staying only one night. We were told there were hookups on our site but when we arrived we found electric and water on the curb side of the trailer - none on the customary side. Our standard length 30A cord would not reach so made due with a 15A extension cord. As far as we could tell our site, #20, was not actually wired for hookups. The manager was friendly when we eventually met her. This is a rural campground so access to management is only for a few hours in the evening.
The campground seems clean enough but is obviously an old campground which needs updating for big rigs. It was most inconvenient to pull our 33' fiver up to the office only to find no adequate turnaround. There is limited to no cell coverage in the part of Maine. I never bothered to test the WiFi for internet access nor bothered to see if there was any TV cable connection. We spent most of time looking for a more adequate campground for our needs.
On the positive side, the tent sites looked very nice, clean and spacious and it was marvelously quiet. No traffic noise at all.
We will not stay here with our 5th wheel again. - kayaking RVers

This is the worst campground we ever stayed in. The bath rooms were falling down and were filled with spider webs: discussing. - ClassB
Jun 2008 - $30.00
We had traveled from the mid-west to visit family and had to move after two of the 10 nights we had booked because the water (was told before arrival that everything was ready) was not on and would not be for at least a day. This "day" turned into multiple days but we were offered a "pail" if we needed more water. We did have power and sewer, but without water available, our basic needs could not be met. I can say that not only do we not recommend this campground, we will never return to it. - JBH

a beautifu campground, a little out of the crowd in the acadia national park area. Very easy drive to the schoodic peninsula, on the water, full services " up top near the road" , but if you can live without internet and sewer, going down below gives you the camping feeling with water and electric. Bathroms dated, but quite serviceable. Attentive owners without being intrusive, beautiful views, convenient to all of the attractions nearby, we loved this campground, extended our stay to 2 weeks, and would definitely return. - sam and hope

If you want to stay away from the crowds near Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor we would definitely recommend this campground. Although it is right next to US 1; it is a fairly quiet spot especially at night when the traffic dies down, but even the daytime traffic is tolerable and fairly light most times. We were in the "upper" area near the office which does not offer the great views that the "lower" camping area does, but we could still see the water and we had great WI-FI near the office. The sites are large, the owner offered very helpful instructions on where to eat and what to do in the area along with the "short cut" to Acadia. The only drawback to the park was the extra $3/day charge if you wanted to use A/C or electric heat despite the fact that you already are charged $2/night for 50 amp service, so if you want both 50 amp and A/C plan on spending $5/day extra. Over the air TV only found 2 channels and the reception was poor at that, no cable available here. We thoroughly enjoyed the stay and all the great sites in the area and would return here again in the future. - Bob & Stephanie

We rented a cabin for a week which was very nice. It was a very warm week. The cabins do not have AC, but had fans. Normally, you would not need AC because it was an unusually warm week. During the day we would explore the Schoodic area and even headed north to Eastport and Lubec. This campground is in a perfect area, away from the Bar Harbor traffic. The CG owners told us about a shortcut to get to Bar Harbor which would bypass the Ellsworth traffic. It was a great week and we were pleased to return to a cool cabin due to the cool breeze off of the bay. We slept well. The cabins were very clean and cozy. TV reception was limited, but they did offer Wi-Fi. Do stop at Tracys for some great Lobster, seafood and ice cream. It is a short walk away. We would return to this place. Next time I will bring my RV as the Campground looked inviting and had stunning views of Mt Desert Island. - weathershak

Great view of Winter Harbor right outside the door. Ample room for any size of RV. This part of the Maine Coast provides an authentic peek at quaint fishing villages while providing a jumping off point to peruse Bar Harbor via ferry (right next door) or a drive (about 1 hour). We preferred this area due to the peaceful surroundings, removed from the hustle and bustle of Bar Harbor. You are minutes away from restaurants, grocery stores, antique shops, and Schoodic Point Acadia National Park. The owners are invested in the property, providing a high level of service and comfortable surroundings--and hey--must mention the free washing with "solar" drying aminities. We loved this place. - Tim101

We stayed here for one week, and this campground is the end of our journey north before we head home to Texas. We have to say that this campground was the best we've stayed in during our entire trip. We had 50 amp electricity, water, sewer, and a great view of Henry's Cove, which is an inlet off of the Atlantic Ocean. This campground is small, with only 10 spaces, but every space has a great waterfront view. The owners of MainStay are very courteous and accommodating. One evening they were cooking lobsters for their family, and they offered to add ours to the pot. The owners have lived in this area for many years and are very knowledgeable and helpful of the places to see and the best restaurants. There are no public showers, but we didn't need them. They do have a laundry room with cold water wash (at no charge), and "solar" drying on a clothes line. They offer Wi-Fi to their customers, and it is reliable. We had good Dish satellite reception, and our Verizon phones worked, but not consistently. They are very close to Acadia National Park, which we toured during the day and relaxed at the campground at night. We will stay here if we ever return to Maine and highly recommend it to others. - Ferdy

This absolutely beautiful National Park Campground is roughly 1 year new and high on our list of favorites. All roads are paved throughout the campground and the RV sites have clean, crushed stone with no dirt or sand. The park offers a community dumping station that is immaculate. The surroundings are beautiful and far enough from other campers to be quiet and serene. Nearby Winter Harbor is pleasant and the loop around Schoodic Point is incredible (note, RVs longer than 20 ft are prohibited from the loop). Fortunately, the park provides a shuttle service to see all the sights. This campground is a bit distance from Bar Harbor (~45 min.) but to avoid the crowds it was a worth the drive. There is, however, a ferry to Bar Harbor. We will return! - Terrytnt

Beautiful place. Very long and wide spots. Electric is 50 amp and there is water at each site. There are no sewers but a dump station is available. Paved roads with flat gravel sites. Park seems very new. Most sites separated with good size trees. - flashgrdma

This park is a new park that just opened Labor Day 2015. Nice level sites, plenty of room in between sites. You hardly see any other campers. 50amp Electric and Water. Paved interior roads. All utilities worked very well, WIFI fairly good. Would stay here again. If you like hiking/biking, there is plenty to do. Otherwise, there is a ferry over to Bar Harbor ($24/adult roundtrip). Located in Acadia National Park so obviously lots of pretty scenery. - jacknpeg
