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

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

Park is behind eclectic antique store. Office is in store.
Sites closer to the office (and Hwy 1) are full service. We opted for PW site closer to the water. No road noise.
We booked in for 2 nights so we could visit Bar Harbor and Acadia NP. Both were very busy but we're glad we made the trip. Owner gave us short cut instructions to Bar Harbor which bypassed Ellsworth.
We would stay here again. - DCM/JMB

This is one of the best RV parks we have been to! Right on the water, right between the two parts of Acadia National Park. Nice and quiet, and not in the middle of the chaos in Bar Harbor.
But you can't beat the views. You can see Cadillac Mountain, see the water and walk the rocky shoreline. - FrugalNavyWife

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

Great small park overlooking Henry's Cove. If all coaches set up to over look the water. Some will be tight together, but the view is worth it. They have added a washer and as noted they have a solar dryer. Owners live on site and are very helpful. - peddy dick

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

Campground is only 1 year old, and was designed for modern equipment. The site was HUGE! We had a trailer and reserved a site that said it was good for up to 20 feet, but the driveway was over 60 feet long. No issue getting in/or or parking the tow vehicle. Only other site we could see from our site was directly across from us. No water on the A loop, but the B loop has both W/E. Bike trail around the park was great, little traffic (unlike on main peninsula). Didn't use the ferry to Bar Harbor, but understand one is available. Got 6 or so TV channels from the antenna, and a weak WiFi from the rangers. Great trip! - brentp

This would be a 10 if it were a bit closer to Mt Desert Island, but perhaps the distance limits the crowds and it has everything else right for a NPS campground. They offer group, tent, limited service RV sites and nice long level pullthroughs with good 20/30/50A service and water. The wifi worked well at our site. OTA TV is a bust, so bring a dish if you want to watch. The campground was built by an anonymous person(s) along with 8.5 miles of newly constructed bike paths, 4 miles of hiking trails and it and about 1400 acres of land adjacent to the existing NPS land were donated to the NPS upon completion last year. Tax dollars and park fees could not have built a nicer facility. Winter harbor has a small grocery and the surrounding villages all host "lobstah" shacks and restaurants. Firewood is not sold in the campground, but there are several honor-box wood sheds along the side of the roads outside of the park. Area is great for bicycles. - Trailbuddy

This a new, spacious, and beautiful campground. The reception was friendly and went well. It's a interesting and very scenic area. - Dragoon
