This is a great campground. Nice wide, level sites with shrubbery in between for privacy. There are lots of pull throughs. There is an inlet and a shore walk around the water. You can swim off the rocks at high tide. Most nights the owner will steam lobsters to your order and deliver them to your camp site--at a very reasonable price. A good way to see Bar Habor is to take the local ferry from Winter Harbor, about 30 miles away. About a 45 min trip, it drops you off at the commercial harbor in Bar Harbor and you avoid all the craziness that can be Bar Harbor--$32 rt. Sunset Point was a very enjoyable CG and we would definitely stay there again. - hudsonguy

What a lovely location and park! Exceptionally clean sites and restrooms! Quiet! Owner and staff very pleasant and helpful. Launch your canoe and/or kayak right from camp. Close to several interesting tourist locations. Would come back again and highly recommend! - Don and Pat

Small campground with spacious and level sites. Ours is a pull-through site with a private seating area that is surrounded by shrubs to provide privacy and includes a covered picnic table. The campground is located on a bay but we do not have a water view. There is a nice trail that goes along the shore. Our site has 50 amp electric and water, but no sewer.
The owner is friendly and helpful. He will also purchase, cook, and deliver to your RV lobsters. You tell him how many and what size and then delivers to you. Affordable too - $9.00 per pound.
The area is very quiet. - Randy & Sharon

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

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

Read a very positive review of this new park in Downeast magazine and booked a one night reservation on line. (Bookings for RV sites this summer are going fast.)We reserved site B-7, which was a pull through and perfect for our 20 foot Roadtrek Versatile. God, easily accessible 30 amp power and water at the site. Gravel base. Picnic table and a fire ring. Some other RV sites had semi-mature white pines to provide some shade; ours had none. Tiny white pine saplings in cardboard planting pots didn't cut it. Cute, though. The check in process was swift, the ranger who processed our reservation was knowledgeable and cheerful. Because of the modest length of our Roadtrek she said we could drive the Schoodic loop road to the ocean point. Larger RVs and those without toads had to take the free shuttle to see the peninsula. (Pets are allowed on the shuttle, we were told.) Restrooms were squeaky clean. No showers or hot water, however. We are Mainers and knew we were visiting during the June black fly season, and those blood-drawing little beasties were out in force. Mosquitos too, of course, at sundown. Do NOT leave any windows open in your camper. Though we were glad to have visited, and were impressed with the cleanliness and level of service from the Ranger staff, once we'd made the loop road drive (two hours), there is nothing else to do. Due to the mosquitos and flies we didn't take advantage of the educational program on offer that evening at the park amphitheater. People around us seemed content to "chill" at their sites. Lots of cyclists on the loop road, so that seemed to be the thing here. Not sure what a family with teenagers would do for an entire week. - TennTrek

This National Park Service campground opened in 2015. It has 43
"RV" sites with power and water, but also has 13 power only sites for RVs (no water at the site), and 26 tent sites with power. It also has 9 "walk to" sites.
Like all COE and NPS campgrounds, the park layout is excellent. The campsites are large gravel base camping spaces, surrounded by a grassy area, then natural woods. The sites are spaced out very well with excellent privacy between campsites. This campground is beautiful, much like the surrounding area of Acadia National Park. Landscaping has been added to provide privacy screens for each campsite.
Be aware - there are restrooms, but not shower facilities. There is no hot water in the restrooms.
Schoodic Woods CG is located in breathtaking Acadia National Park on the Schoodic Peninsula. A loop road begins at the campground and runs around the perimeter of the peninsula. There are many pull-outs and parking areas around the loop, and many miles of hiking trails on the peninsula. Hiking trails are rated as easy or moderate, however, in our experience, some parts of the "moderate" trails are pretty aggressive.
This CG is about an hour drive from Mount Desert Island where the main part of Acadia NP and the "tourist area" of Bar Harbor are located.
WiFi is available at the park and it is very fast! I had good coverage at my site (B30) near a maintenance building; I didn't see other WiFi antennas throughout the park however, so I don't know if good coverage is the same at all sites.
I wish this CG were not so far from my home base; if it were, I would certainly return here! - Bama Camper
