Seawall Campground - Southwest Harbor - Acadia National Park - Site C16 Date of Stay: September 2018 Site C16 Overall Rating: This was a two night stay for us and it cost $15 with golden age. It is the peaceful campground in this National Park and reservations are needed. The campground also closes at the end of September (this might change). We loved the campground. There are about 31 RV sites in loop C which was built just for RV's. One can camp with a RV in some of the other loops but when you reserve make sure you can fit. Nice bathrooms but no showers but they can be found outside the park for a fee. It is a walk away or quick bike ride away from the seawall in a beautiful area. There is hiking, biking, kayaking and a quick ride to Echo Lake where there is swimming. To get over to the parkway road and Bar Harbor it is about 30 minutes away so take the free shuttles... Nice campground with Ranger talks and walks, free LL Bean shuttles that take you all around Acadia National Park..! Some campers stop at the local grocery store in Southwest Harbor where they will steam lobsters for you on the go. We camped at Seawall Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome and really enjoy our stay here. We camped at Seawall Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Seawall is a typical National Park campground, so dry camping is the order of the day. Our site was heavily shaded and quite spacious. Leveling the trailer was a bit of a challenge, but we managed. Bath houses (no showers) were conveniently located as were potable water spiggots. We were in the "C" loop where generators are allowed, and thankfully it appears that most campers are now using the quieter inverter type machines. There were one or two exceptions but they weren't nearby. We have used a Honda 3000is for years and find it to be an excellent power source when needed. Solar was difficult in this park due to rather dense forest. We enjoyed our stay here and will return in the future. We camped at Seawall Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

This is one of the very few National Parks we have visited where dogs are allowed on most of the park trails. Our dog loves to hike, so needless to say, he was very pleased.

Typical national park campground. No showers. There are water spigots located throughout. Our site was partially shaded with enough open sunlight for our solar panel. We had decent ATT 4G LTE service during our stay. Conveniently located to two good hikes close by - Wonder Land and Ship Harbor. We camped at Seawall Campground (NPS Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

This is a National Park campground so of course, no hookups. Site was fairly level and grass with a lot of shade. The first 10 sites are side by side so your neighbor will be very close, so choose sites starting with 11. Water spigots throughout the campground and dump station is in a good location. We were 36' and managed the roads but I wouldn't go any bigger, just enough room for the toad. Restrooms were some the best I've seen in a national park campground. Staff was very friendly and helpful especially the park ranger lady. She helped us a lot. A great location for seeing the park and the seawall is right across the street from the campground: you can walk, bike or drive. Beautiful location and we would definitely come back. We camped at Seawall Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Nice campground. No hookups or TV reception. Verizon phone iffy, no hot spot. The campground is in the National Park but is really 35 minutes drive from about anywhere. I would recommend staying in one of the private campgrounds near Bar Harbor which is much closer to the park, it's scenic drive and hiking. We camped at Seawall Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

A great National Park, could use some branch trimming for higher rigs, we are 12'6" high. I have found that they do not mind if you help out by trimming a little, I always carry a set of heavy duty branch loppers. Close to ocean but just in a great area. Staff are friendly and helpful but like most national and state parks are under funded and under staffed. I would stay here again, very quiet at night and has a cutoff for generators at 7:00 PM. We camped at Seawall Campground (NPS Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

Cost was $10 with golden age. We have never before stayed at this campground in Acadia National Park in Southwest Harbor. This campground is a first come first serve campground and closes September 30. It is in the peaceful area of Acadia National Park and the reason we had never stayed there before is that there is always a waiting line to get in but since we had reservations for Blackwoods the next day we thought we would take a chance that it would not be crowded in September five nights before it closed. We loved the campground. There are about 31 RV sites in loop C which was built just for RV’s. New bathrooms but no showers but they can be found outside the park for a fee. It is a walk away or quick bike ride away from the seawall in a beautiful area. Many of the campers there could not get into Blackwoods campground so came here and decided they would stay because they loved it. Hiking, biking, kayaking and a quick ride to Echo Lake where there is swimming. To get over to the parkway road and Bar Harbor it is about 30 minutes away. The night we were there they were giving away free fire wood because it was the end of the season. Nice campground with Ranger talks and walks and some of the friendliest rangers who will give you complete information about the park, free shuttles, hikes etc. This campground is not as busy in the fall as Blackwoods so the rangers have more time for you! Some campers stopped at the local grocery store in Southwest Harbor where they will steam lobsters for you on the go – our camping neighbors had lobster every night! We camped at Seawall Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

We camped at both Seawall and Blackwoods. Seawall doesn't take reservations but we drove in on a Thursday morning and had our choice of spots. The bathrooms here are bigger and more modern than at Blackwoods. The free shuttle takes time but enables you to travel anywhere on the island. The ranger program in the outdoor amphitheater was very good. It was a very quiet stay. We camped at Seawall Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.
