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

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

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

Really nice place and very friendly and helpful staff at the office. Had a really nice site. The only issue was the bathrooms were so tight between the toilet and door you had to squeeze between the two. The doors do not come out far enough. Fine if you are a child, but not an adult. I would change that for sure. Also, need the toilet cover seats so you don't have to use tons of toilet paper to cover the toilet. Also, the pool was supposed to be heated as promised, but the water was freezing. - Travelgirl2008

Great campsite close to Acadia National Park. The only negative is their internet is weak but they state that on their website and check in. It is strong right next to the office/pool/laundry.
We stayed here 5 nights and while visiting Acadia National Park. So close. Very friendly workers and people in the office. The sell post cards AND stamps and mail them right there too. The Island bus stops in the camp ground to take you all over the Island. We didn't use it but many people did.
A very nice campground. I would stay here again! - aka4170

We spent 6 nights here and loved it. It's very convenient to Acadia National Park, and the island's free shuttle bus stops here as well. The campground is clean and well kept up. The pool and restrooms were clean. The staff were very friendly. The sites are spacious, and there are lots of choices between shady or sunny sites. Ours was nice and shady. The sites are gravel pads with grass, and fire ring, and a picnic table. The only downsides for us were that you have to pay for showers (which we didn't use), and the washing machines are very expensive. We'd stay here again. - Ursula A

We stayed at this park while visiting Acadia National Park. It was close enough to the park for us to be able to enjoy visiting, but it was also near the town of Ellsworth where there was a WalMart and other shopping options. Where the transient spots are located, the roads are wide and easy to maneuver. Our site was very long, lots of room to park our tow vehicle either in front or behind. - pattic777

Doggie bag with a treat for the pups and chocolates for the people. Very good information about the area. Huge long sites. You won't have any trouble with getting your rig in. Nice, well laid out laundry. Nice camp store. They accommodated our wish to extend our stay even though we had to move sites. - Axe and Cindy

Very nice park. The staff was really helpful and friendly. The sites are large, power good, water pressure good. The interior roads, although paved can give you some surprises with the dips, frost heaves and not marked speed bumps. - Mooney 201 Pilot

Nice location for touring Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor. Pretty view and sunsets. Sites are unlevel and close together. Not very flexible about requesting a site move even though sites were available. The bus stop is convenient for transportation. - EllieH55

This is a somewhat older park. The sites are a little too close for us - not a lot of room to put put lawn chairs. They do have fire rings at all of the sites.
Our original site that was a "standard" site with electric and water only (which is the one that is on the Passport America discount). The electric did not work. They moved is to a different site which wound up being one of their premier sites. This was nice as it gave us 50 amp service, cable and a sewer hookup.
The laundry machines need to have some repairs. There are 5 washers but only 2 were working.
Also the pop machine in the laundry and the one at one of the bathroom buildings are not working. These are usually handled by the pop distributor but they need to be notified.
Overall if is a nice park and due to the fact it is in a tourist area they can demand the higher prices. We would not have stayed here if it had not been for the Passport discount. - prstlkid

Had a site right on the water. Even though waterfront sites only have power and water, we loved it! The staff was cordial and the grounds well maintained. - Joe-n-Doe
Jun 2016 - $56.00
Pros: Great Staff, Clean, Views, almost like being in Acadia NP its so close, nicely heated pool, bus picks up there. Some activities.
Cons: Gravel/Dirt roads, gravel sites with some beachy weeds, dusty, cars do not follow 5M signs and make too much dust. Wifi did not work the whole two weeks we were there.
It is a great location for see Acadia NP and I would stay again. It is expensive for what you get. I just wish they would pave the roads through the park. - User3274

This is a fairly well maintained campground, staff were helpful at check in. The interior road is gravel with some pot holes, big rig access was fair. Our premium water front site was spacious, level, gravel and grass, well shaded and screened from neighbors, we had a picnic table and fire ring, plenty of space for our towed. We pulled into the back in site to take advantage of the superb water view, which meant running utilities under the coach. Bathrooms were clean however, disappointing for this class of campground, the laundry was clean and well equipped. Pet friendly but no doggie bags or disposal stations. WiFi was an extra cost, which is outrageous considering the price of this campground, there was however a free hot spot in the clubhouse, AT&T cell was okay. Plenty of food stores and restaurants about 6 miles down the road, the campground is ideally placed for exploring Mount Desert Island, and Bar Harbor area. There is some noise from the small local airport, which did not bother us. This campground is all about the view and is way overpriced for the amenities offered, there are more reasonable alternatives in the area, however, this late in the season most of them have already shut down. If not for the view we would have rated this campground lower. - tobyjug

Spaceous RV park with widely spaced gravel sites and a grassy area in between. Very open, no shade. Surrounded by trees with the bay on the East side of the park. The pull-thru sites provide AM sun and a view of the bay and have full hookups, cable TV and a picnic table. Some sites have fire pits. Good location to park your RV on the mainland side of Bar Harbor and Acadia NP, avoiding the heavy traffic in and out of the island. Our $19 rate reflects our RPI membership rate. - Michael Kibler

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

Very nice park with friendly people. The park had good Internet and TV, full hookup with 30 amp service. Our site was dirt/gravel and woods. The facilities/amenities were very nice. The only negative for us was that is over-priced. The park was close to Acadia and Bar Harbor. - rvjubilee

Nice campground. Convenient to Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor. Trolley stops inside campground. Very clean heated pool. Friendly staff. The newer bathrooms were very clean. The older ones show their age. Lots of wooded tent camping sites. Store could use some variety. Price reflects Koa Kamper Kabin rate. - McNamara's Band
