20 Parks near Stueben, Maine
Jul 2015 - $33.00
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

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

Wonderful location with beautiful views of the harbour. We enjoyed exploring the nearby village of Winter Harbour. Our hosts were friendly and very gracious. Lovely, peaceful spot. - acadiandave

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

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

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
Aug 2016 - $36.00
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

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
Sep 2015 - $29.00
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

We very much enjoyed our stay here and the location (close to Acadia and Bar Harbor Village) made for very convenient outings. We would rate this campground much higher if it had more full hookup sites for big rigs and if our Electric/Water site had been level. We were blocked up pretty good and still couldn't get level. Same with our immediate neighbors. No reservations are accepted and the full hookup sites were full the full length of our stay. As it turns out, we benefited from the no reservation policy because we had to stay here an additional 5 days waiting, on a day-to-day basis, for our motor home windshield to arrive so it could be replaced due to damage sustained on the road. Except for the July 4 weekend itself, all other days there were ample sites available, just not many for big rigs. Once during our stay we had trouble with the electric but they responded within about 15 minutes and replaced the receptacle. We used the Island Explorer to ride free directly from the campground throughout Acadia National Park and the island. It was wonderful. Lots of restaurants and ice cream near the campground. Good dry campfire wood available in lots of places right along the highway near the campground at prices cheaper than the campground. Propane is available at the campground. - MissMyGolden

We were told to arrive at noon in order to find a space in this "no reservations" campground. When we arrived there was only one space left that would accommodate our big rig. We overheard a phone conversation where people were being told to arrive at 9:00 am which would require that you spend the previous night fairly close by. People drive around and around waiting for a space to open up. We weren't happy with the narrow space we were stuffed into but the window-side neighbors left after 2 days and it was much better. We weren't covered by trees so had good wifi and antenna-TV. Office staff very nice. Great place to walk. Distant view of ocean from top of hill. Area is beautiful but so over-crowded we will not return unless it's out of season. Would stay at this campground again. - all4pets

This is the campground which does not take reservations. You arrive in the morning, by 9:00 a.m. if possible during the busy season. You get a map at the desk and then drive around looking for an empty site. When you find one, you leave something like a chair on the site to show it has been taken, drive back to the office, and pay cash or by check. I did not mind the process and found an adequate site and then moved to a much better ocean-view site the next day. Note that ocean-view does not mean you are close to the ocean or walk down to it. Office staff were very helpful, and I took advantage of the pay-for-six-days-and-get-the-seventh-free deal. Roads were paved, but sites were gravel. It was quite a walk to the office to catch the island shuttle, but a real treat to let someone else do the driving! I really liked this place and will stay again if I come to this area. Excellent Verizon voice and data access, which was very pleasant. Another benefit is that you are close to town-no paved shoulders or bike path, but the shuttle rides were short ones. - judy_online

We stayed at Lamoine two nights as we were visiting Acadia NP for 1 day and couldn't get advance Summer bookings for Acadia's campgrounds. This campground was lovely: big, grassy, clean sites. Excellent clean toilets and showers (a bit busy, but there was a pleasant area to wait our turn). Some sites are literally on the ocean: but we easily walked from our site to numerous picnic tables on the water's edge. Very quiet and dark at night, perfect for stargazing: but don't forget your flashlight! About 25 minutes to Bar Harbor and Acadia NP visitor center (w/roadworks). No dump station, and none available on Mount Desert Island (at least so we were told), so dump before coming or for $$ fee in Ellsworth area. - Eli Israel

Most important: site 50 is no longer an XL site. Evidently they changed numbers but it is not reflected on the Maine State Park reservation system. We stayed in site #33 which was nice and open with plenty of room between any other sites. Overall it is a nice park but there isn't much to do here unless you have a kayak or fish off the dock. There is no "town" (Ellsworth is about 10 minutes away) but you could make trips into Acadia from here, and it's probably 40 minute drive to Bar Harbor. If you are looking for freshwater to fill your tanks: you will need at least a 30-foot hose as the bathrooms (where the fresh water spigot is located) are about that far away from the road. Everything was really clean, although they always seemed to be mowing during the day. Otherwise, it is a very quiet park with lots of open lawn, picnic areas and a playground. - jayco32bhds2009

Stayed overnight on site #46, which seemed to be the only one with a sandbox area for the tent. This was a medium sized site about a car width from the road. The tree coverage is moderate, so you can't see the other sites around you. It is a short walk to the bathhouse, which was pretty nice for facilities. Bundles of wood were 5$ and was a generous bundle. They provide a small wagon to carry it to your site. I reserved beforehand, and check in was 2 min. Most sites are level, but not all, but last row of sites facing the water seemed to be the best of the bunch. I would give this park a return visit. - thecyr

Spent weekend at Acadia National Park at Blackwoods CG. Wonderful, typical national park campsite. Trees and environment made you think you were in an alpine area. CG has 275 campsites with 25 pull-thrus that accommodate 35 ft. RVs. No hook-up, but that's OK - location makes up for it. Easy access to park roads and trails. Be sure to enter off of route 3. Bar Harbor can be crowded during high season. We had lunch in Northeast Harbor. Less crowds and fun places. - Al Z

Boondock camping as in no water, sewer, or electric, but there is a dump station. Lots of sites, especially tent sites. Weather was wet and cold but that is not the park's fault. Sites are in the woods. - 1coloradan

Quiet NPS campground near Bar Harbor, all sites are wooded fairly short, including our pull through, just long enough for our 29' class c & toad. Staff at the check-in are friendly & helpful. Some nice hiking trails right from the campgrounds. Our rate was with the Senior Pass. There are no hookups here which is normal for a NP campground, there is a dump station & water fill. There are clean bathrooms, but no showers, nearest showers are just outside of the entrance for a fee. If in the area again, we will stay here. - bukhrn

We were with a group of 3 others and reserved last year and got one of the few 50 amp sites. (There are only sixteen 50 amp sites.) But, most RV Parks in this area don't have many 50 amp sites. Our site was about 45" deep and wide enough to park the car beside the motorhome. The electricity was excellent and did not drop below 118 volts with all 3 A/C units on and the hot water heater running, when we initially set up. There was good water pressure and water flow.
The owner and the workers were all very friendly. The current owner has had the park for 6 years and made a number of improvements. They have 16 new cabins with heat and air, a small bathroom and a covered porch. The swimming pool is well maintained. The free, Island Express, a bus, runs through the park every 30 minutes. You can go to the National Park visitor center and transfer to other buses or go to downtown Bar Harbor. There was very good Verizon 4G service, 14 Mbps. They also have free WiFi.
CONS: I docked the park due to the lack of sewers at the 50 amp sites, (A2-A17), $12 for "honey wagon" service if needed, the lack of cable tv and the fact that most sites are not satellite friendly. We were gone most of each day, but I do like to be able to view some news and financial channels at breakfast. You can get 2 or 3 stations from Bangor, Maine, 35 air miles away, at some of the sites. Potential, satellite friendly sites would be A1, A28-30 and A25-26, Also A2-9, if the dome was at the very front of the RV.
OVERALL: I would not hesitate to return to this campground and I would recommend it to others. They do have 15, 30 amp sites with sewer and 7 of those are pull thru sites. - johnwadams

Our back-in, grass site was nice and level. It's a bit tight, but they help you get backed in so it wasn't an issue. They have a honey wagon service that you can schedule to come by and dump your black and gray tanks. Our boys took full advantage of the pool.
Would have been an excellent deal, for where we were, if we had full hookups. Verizon service worked well, but Sprint did not. - 5nomads
Aug 2016 - $43.00
The staff was extremely helpful and the spaces were level. Even though we didn't have a pull through site, we had plenty of room to drop our trailer and park our RV in the same site. We were able to walk to the beach (more of a boat launch) but the walk back is all up hill. You can get a lobster dinner for 2 delivered from a place right across the street. - AudiG

We were very disappointed with Narrows. The sites were unclean with debris and small garabage remnents. All the roads were gravel and dirt which created dust and noise as campers drove through the campground. There were NO garabage cans at the sites. (The dumpster was so far from the campsite, that people deposited their trash in the bathrooms.)
No sewer connection, and a charge to use the dump station. We paid for 5 nights and left after 3. Far too expensive for what we received in amenities. - Terrytnt
Aug 2016 - $50.00
We liked our stay here...stayed a week. Sites vary from 30 amp no sewer to 50 amp with sewer plus tent sites. Sites on the water do not have sewer. Our 50 amp, FHU site was a pull-thru, however not enough room to leave the toad attached. Site was gravel/dirt and was level. Our site had no shade, but there are shaded sites. Lots of space to walk the dog and nice views of water. Most sites are fairly close, however we never had a neighbor on our curb side, which was nice. WiFi was excellent as was cable. Friendly, efficient check-in. Good Verizon cell service. There's a free shuttle bus that drives the island to transport you to Bar Harbor, Acadia NP, and points between. IGA grocery store not far in Trenton. We would stay here again. - Gayle E.
Aug 2016 - $45.00
We had a site that was very near to the dump station so we would occasionally smell the odor. Site was mostly level with a mix of dirt and gravel. The roads were dirt so there was a lot of dust created when cars drove by. The campground is on the water but there is no beach, many people were out digging for clams at low tide. The pool is near the store and is small for the size of the campground. Laundry room had 5 washers of which 2 were out of order and 6 dryers. They have canoes and kayaks available to rent. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Bathrooms and showers are cleaned daily. Trolley service gave easy access to Bar Harbor, where parking is a challenge due to the volume of traffic. We would stay here again if in the area. - shar1435
