5 RV Parks near Harrington, Maine
Sep 2017 - $37.00
Be aware that there are two CGs with very similar names and only about 50 miles apart along the Maine Coast. (We stayed at the other as well - see my review.)
This is a great, though small, CG that actually backs up to a bay with a view to the Atlantic. We found it by accident and were happy enough to add days to stay four nights. Quiet, well spaced sites. The owner will even deliver a lobster dinner to your site if he has any.
If there was any drawback, our particular site was a bit difficult to back in with a 38 foot 5th wheel and a long bed truck. Most of the other sites will work just fine. A covered table, fire ring and trash can at every site. There is a very nice, easily walked path that follows the shore and has a couple benches. We hope to return someday. - Travelin' Dave

I love this little campground and could easily spend weeks here. It only has 21 RV sites and feels like a campground should. It's quiet, attractive, and functional. The facilities are not new, but they are clean and well maintained. You get park quality views and sunsets from the short little trail around the campground, or directly from some of the sites, for no extra charge. No water slides, pools, or coasters, so it won't appeal much to the faux adventure crowd. - jerry6

There are 30 sites on 7 acres. Each site has a picnic table covered by a roof. Trash cans are also at each site. Sites are level and very well spaced. This is a great spot. We'll come back to this campground. - MCHug

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

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

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

All about location and the view! Some spots are better than others depending on if you are in a motorhome or trailer. Spot 7 in a motorhome was perfect; windshield faced the bay and no neighbor to the right. Two sites use a common connection area so one side of the rv is extremely close to the other, only room to walk between. Not a big deal unless you park reverse for best view; could have your door right next to a rig.
Check their site map and if possible work site that is best for your rig. Can't beat the location and view. Quiet. We will gladly stay here again! Wonderful hosts! - z32k12

This small park gets high marks for a spectacular setting, ideal location for sightseeing, nice level pads and services, free washer and clothesline (solar dryer!) and good wifi. The proprietors are friendly and helpful and take pride in their facility and town. The downsides are: VERY close together sites sharing the same pedestal. We could NOT put out our awning all the way. The way to avoid this is to book early and request a sideview slot rather than a front view one...there are only a couple or so of those but have much more room. I could not get a Verizon data signal at all when the park was weak but fortunately the wifi was mostly solid...and phone reception was spotty. There are no bathroms, no showers, no pool, no swimming, no playground, no clubhouse etc. ....You are buying a well equipped parking spot with solid water, electric, sewer and wifi...and a spectacular water view in a clean and quiet central location. I gave it an 8 for the beauty! We would return. - Camaraderie

First things first - the owners are absolutely wonderful. They are very friendly (offered me a beer when we showed up), very helpful, and just great to talk to. This is a very simple RV park with just 10 sites, no bathrooms or showers. Great location right on the harbor. We were initially put off by the RV's lined right up close to each other. But, after we set up, sat at the table and chairs supplied, and looked over the harbor during late afternoon, that didn't bother us a bit. Mornings are gorgeous, too, drinking your coffee and watching for eagle and osprey feeding in the harbor. The grounds are very simple, but very well-maintained. The park is walking distance to town and the bar Harbor ferry. The Schoodic section of Acadia NP is just down the street, less than a mile. There is nice bike riding at Schoodic and the Winter Harbor area. What is great is that you are removed from the Bar Harbor nuttiness. The site was level, good 50A power, and big rigs should have no problem. Wi-fi was good, and Verizon service was good. We're looking forward to going back. - Merlinmurph

This would be an almost perfect campground if it had showers. It's camping like it should be, rather than an amusement park with campsites. It has beautiful hiking trails, sweet biking trails, free shuttles to some of the most beautiful scenery in the eastern U.S., clean and up-to-date everything . . . except showers. Sorry tent campers. If it did have showers, it would be my current standard or gauge for what a great campground should be. It's still near the top and a great achievement by the National Park Service. - jerry6

This is a terrific National Park. Designed and built for the kind of "camping" Americans do these days. We were in the B section. Almost all pull through, able to accommodate the largest RVs, water and electric. The A section is larger and most spots would accommodate large RVs, electric only. This is not the "Bar Harbor experience." There are no T shirt shops, no fudge shops. This is Acadia. Great drives along the rocky Maine coast. Great bicycle paths, great hiking. Great sites for everything from large motor homes to small walk-in tent sites. Park operates a free shuttle all along the peninsula, including the town of Winter Harbor, where there are restaurants and some shopping. - mroswell

Lovely, large, level spaces. Decent privacy from other campers although we could hear kids at spot behind our. We stayed in Loop A to be away from motor homes. Loop B has both electric and water. Loop A has electric only. Restrooms and entire park are new as of 2015, so kept immaculate. Clean, big outdoor dish sink at restrooms. Wood sold nearby at VERY reasonable cost. Note, showers are available at a commercial facility in Otter Point close to other NPS campgroud. - pakngo
