We spent three nights here to begin a 32 day caravan through the Canadian Atlantic Maritimes. Nice park with different sections, our 22 coaches were all grouped in the middle.
Lots to see in the area, especially Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. - TwoCorners

The nightly rate reflects a weekly discount for staying at this RV park for five weeks. This is a nice RV park right across the bridge from Mount Desert Island and Acadia National Park. Our site was a level, gravel pull-thru site with good hook-ups and a fire ring. There aren't many trees in the main area of the RV park, but that does make it easy for satellite reception. There was a good sized heated pool but it did not always seem very clean. The WiFi was decent and usually functioning. The RV park is on the Acadia NP shuttle route which made it easy and inexpensive to access Bar Harbor and the National Park. The access roads, within the RV park, are gravel which makes for some pretty dusty conditions. Paving of those roads would greatly improve the experience of staying there. There is limited recycling available within the RV park (Maine redemption recyclables only) and it is difficult to find full recycling services in the Bar Harbor/Ellsworth area. - Byron Bailey

Wonderful staff! Very accommodating. Very close to national park, BarHarbor, and Lobster. We enjoyed having the bus available to get to and from Acadie park. Staff very helpful in getting us settled in. This park is partially open sites, some on the water and like our site was nestled in the woods. Very beautiful. - Cindy dunn

We stayed here a week. Site was very nice, a lot of seasonals but everything is well kept. Our toad had a dead battery when we went to unhook and immediately someone showed up to give us a jump. We needed propane, which they have, but the hose wasn't long enough to reach to the driver side(have encountered this in numerous cgs), will give the office a call when we leave and someone will meet us at the propane tank.
CG hosted a Harvest Dinner at the pavilion, nice central location and covered. This was a complete meal, we just pulled in so we weren't prepared to bring anything.
Wifi is poor generally. Even in the off hours. - Wandering

Friendly staff made check in easy. They furnished area maps and information as a part of the process. Lots are spacious with sunny/open exposures. Site surface is gravel and features a picnic table. Power was stable during our stay.
Easy access to Acadia National Park, Bar Harbor, and other tourist sites.
This is mostly a seasonal park with a limited number of spaces for short term parking. - Lakewood90

Fairly large park, about 15-20 miles from Bar Harbor. Be aware that the free shuttle to Bar Harbor/Acadia National Park, does not come out as far as this park; Narrows Too & the remainder of parks closer in all offer free shuttle service to all the points of interest that you will want to go & see. The only advantage to this park is that you are fairly close to a Walmart in Trenton just north of the park on hwy. 3. The park is laid out alright & utilities are good, just wish the shuttle came out that far (parking in Bar Harbor is a premium in the summer & the shuttle is a nice deal). - Smooth Running

A nice small clean RV park. Sites and interior roads are gravel. Good 50 amp power, WiFi worked 99% of the time, and site T-6 was clear of trees so our satellite dish worked. The owners/managers were gone most of the time but that did not cause any problems for us. The location of the park is away from the noise and crowds. We camped here for a week in a big rig. The only complaint I have: there is a lot of road construction going on around Ellsworth and this caused some delays. That complaint doesn’t really have anything to do with the campground. We would camp here again. The $35/day rate included discounts. - pcguy

We stayed two nights. It was near season's end, and the place was a shambles and very untidy. We used Passport rate and so received a 50% discount. Had there been another location close by, we would have moved. We would not stay there again. - rhontrevham

We spent three nights here using as a base camp to visit the Bar Harbor/Acadia area. It sits back in the woods and because of the unpaved roads it was dusty. You could say it has two levels; the top is kind of an open field with little of no shade and the bottom part is shaded with lots of trees and quiet. We stayed on the bottom level and it was somewhat tight for my 34 ft 5th wheel but not a challenge. Not sure how old the campground is but it seemed new rather new because it had fresh cut trees and some of the lower sites had more than usual brush between them.. The site I had was nice and I had no problems with my hook ups. The restrooms were very clean and it had nice laundry facilities. Didn't seem to have much for kids to do. For the price $20 (Passport Campground) it was nice and close to the area's attractions and met our needs as a base camp. - pappytx

We had a very level pullthru site....Owner had to change our reserved site but gave us a free night for the inconvenience. Nice clean and quiet campground. Would stay here again if ever in the area. - Trucker 2
Jul 2016 - $60.00
This park is very clean. The interior roads are gravel and a bit dusty. The sites are gravel with excellent wifi and cable. My adjustable water regulator registered less than 40 psi and had to use the house pump to take a shower. The staff was excellent and offered great directions on where to eat and what to see. The nightly rate was a bit steep for its lack of amenities (only had an above ground pool) and the distance to the Acadia National Park/Bar Harbor area. - Michael47

This was a clean, friendly campground with excellent WIFI and good cable reception. The staff was friendly and helpful and the seasonal campers were welcoming. My wife and I have been camping for 20 years and this was one of the better camping experiences that we have had. - Washington Hogwallop

Our rate reflects Good Sams discount. First, the good. The site was level. Second, the bad. The bill was wrong, someone was in our site, the cable would not work. We would not stay here again. - Pat and Rex

We are retired full-time RVers from S. CA traveling the USA in a 24' travel trailer. We reserved our 4-night stay through our RPI membership which provided us a discount. Maine campgrounds are very pricey. We required satellite reception so it was recommended that we pick a site near to the office. The pond is very pretty. The staff is friendly. There is a nice gift store. While in the area, we visited Main Street in Ellsworth. Nice town. - daviescj

Maine is beautiful this time of year. Campgrounds are really expensive, $600.00 for two weeks. We are at Patton Pond Encore Resort in Ellsworth, Maine. This park is advertised as a resort. A resort it is not. Resorts have things going on, entertainment, etc. This place even had outdoor toilets. More like a fish camp. It is an old KOA park. I should have known when we pulled in that when KOA gets out of a park, it is way outdated and not up to standards for today's parks. The problem was that they already had my money and a NO REFUND policy. The only good is that it is fairly quiet except on weekends when locals come in. It seems they bring in the whole family, and the place gets noisy. The dirt entrance road is about 3/4 mile long and full of potholes and wash boarding. You could damage your RV coming in. It is so dusty I had to wash our car before I opened the door. A posting on the internet said the road was this bad over a year ago. Nothing has been done to improve it. Our motorhome has a basement air conditioning unit. We had it running and it pulled in so much dust, we had to wash it out to make it work. I suggested to the office that Calcium Carbonate on the road would take care of the dusting problem after grading. The season rentals have all kinds of junk stored outside and under the units. The lots are small and really close together. Lots of large rock that makes it difficult to park. The place has ten showers, but five are out of order. The remainder were so dirty that I would not wash our dog in them. They have been out of order for over a three years. I confirmed the time line on the internet. The game room is locked most of the time. It is easy to tell that Thousand Trails/Encore is simply sucking all they can out of this park. - Santa P

Loved our stay here. Some sites for big rigs closer to the entrance which are not shaded - two rows closest to water are quieter and shaded but for mostly smaller trailers. No hookups however they have added a dump station and potable water fill since the older reviews. Easy location for visiting Acadia and the rest of Mt Desert without the hustle and bustle. Would definitely stay again. - TCNG

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

We camp here for a week while we visited Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. There is a free shuttle bus service that will take you from the campground to most points in the area (limited schedule after Sept 1st). In the area for big rigs the sites are close together. We had 50 amp electric and water. Electricity worked fine while water pressure was low but adequate. The park will pump out your black/grey water tanks for $12. The site was level. WiFi in the park worked OK during our time there. AT&T cell service was spotty. There is a small pool in the park and a small beach about 1/2 mile from the campground. Although we do not have kids there was a play area in the park. We were close to trees but able to get our satellite dish to connect to 2 of 3 DirecTV satellites. Got a couple of OTA stations. - Co-Mike

We were assigned a back in site behind the pool house at our request since it was near the bathrooms and shower house. Site was grass, short, but very wide which suited us just fine. Sites across the street from us were full of big RVs and some had to park tow vehicle across the street because there was no room for it on the site. Office staff was friendly. Ice was sold in the office along with firewood (will deliver a fire ring to your site) and wifi was available though we did not use it and it seemed people came to the laundry to use it. Laundry was clean but very expensive at $3.50 for wash and $.25 for 10 minutes of drying time. There is no sewer at sites but campground does have a dump station and a pump out service. Showers are pay showers even in the cabins and cost $.50 for 7 minutes so bring quarters if you need to use the campground showers. It is about a 4 mile drive to Acadia. We would stop here again. - roadking

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

The name "Woodlands" is very accurate and descriptive. We had one of only 3 or 4 sites that was not heavily treed and shaded. This is the direct opposite of their sister CG (Oceanside KOA) about 1.5 miles away. We prefer this type of layout. The "forest" setting provided us a new found appreciation of star gazing. The trees blocked all outside sources of light so the view of the sky was spectacular. Only going to Cadillac Mountain could have been better. Since star gazing is what I remember most, you can rightly assume I have no complaints about the CG itself. This is where we'll be when we return to Acadia. - campiflo

This campground is part of a corporate pairing with the Oceanside KOA. This is mostly tent camping oriented. Our FHU site will very level. Electric, water and sewer worked correctly. WiFi was fine during the day, but slowed at night when the families returned from touring. Verizon and ATT, both data and voice was weak. You needed to step outside the TT to get a good steady signal. Campground staff are very friendly and you can get one gentleman going in a heart beat. Someone called him an Irishman, and now..... (Hopefully, someone mopped the floor in the laundry room by now.) - moderate camper

Staff was very friendly and accommodating. They always had a wave and a smile. The grounds were spotless. Site was level and grassy. Bathroom and laundry room were very clean. WI-FI was very spotty. Needed to walk to the office area to get it. Wish they were open later in the season, as we return to Maine in the fall. - Genny

Friendly staff. Beautiful waterfront views if your site is on the waterfront. If not, you are in an overcrowded very tight campsite/no shade. Very little space b/n sites. We didn't have room to put up our usual canopy and our view was a closeup of the back of our neighbors RV and sewer pipes. We are used to more private/shaded sites so this was a challenge for us. But, looking beyond that we had hours of fun finding shells and creatures in the tide pools and the man cooking lobster right there at night was awesome and his prices were reasonable. The area of Bar Harbor and Acadia park is beautiful and super pet friendly! We would like to return but would make sure we had a waterfront site for the space and views! - tzumatto

The park has several sites on the war we which are beautiful. We were first in 206 which wasn't on the water but did have a view of the water. The dog park was small but nice. We didn't use it but there was a cafe to purchase food including boiled lobster for dinner! We enjoyed Bar Harbor and Acadia so much we decided to stay an extra night. We were told there weren't any spots available. We double checked online and we're able to find a spot, we went back to the office this time they found it. We aren't sure why they wouldn't have wanted to work harder to find us a spot??? Other than that experience we enjoyed our stay, just wish that the sites would have had full hookups for the price. - 4RollingGs

The campground is located right on the ocean, so the views are very nice. If you are willing to pay $96 (w/o discount) for ocean front view, then this is your place. We visited in early October, so the campground's occupancy was lighter than normal. We were able to find an ocean front site without reservation due to the time of the year but we were told that these sites are pretty much impossible to get during the summer without reservations made months in advance.
This is a typical KOA, a "McCampground" with all the amenities as well as the tight sites and lack of privacy experience. It is nicely kept, clean, the staff is super nice and driving around the island and seeing what other campgrounds look like, this KOA is probably the smart choice.
Probably the very best site is 272, right on the ocean and away from other sites. We stayed in site 343 which I would probably say it ranks in the top 5. Overall, it was a nice experience because it was not too crowded or noisy. - Catalina W

The staff was very friendly and helpful. We only stayed 2 nights but will definitely return. We had a nice view of the ocean from our site (356). The cable and free wifi worked very well.
For short stays: there is a dump station. Some sites are FHU but ours was water/elec/cable only, no sewer. Power was good. No issues. Ranged from 118-123 on my Digital meter over 2 days. We were here under Thousand Trails choice vacation (free stay for us).
MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A GOOD WATER FILTER! We had been in places not needing any filter, so our cartridge was out. The water here has very high iron content and came in very rust colored!! I installed our water entrance filter cartridge and that took care of it, cleared it up ok.
Some of the roads and turns into sites are a bit tight so be careful when maneuvering. - HomeOnWheels_US

We were able to get mail delivered here, and received a call from the office when our package arrived. Staff is friendly and helpful. The office/store has a nice selection of gifts and menus from nearby restaurants. Our pull through spot was level and had some shade. Unfortunately the rocks around our site and the road necessitated us backing out instead of pulling right out. We are a bit long (43') so this is understandable. Water pressure was fair. We had a full hookup, although this campground has many more sites without sewer than with. Dump site can snarl traffic around checkout time. Pump out service is also available. This park also charged a $4.00/day "resort fee". Good location for visiting Acadia NP and Bar Harbor. Can't speak to cleanliness of restrooms, showers and laundry as we did not use. We did notice that fire pits were not cleaned out when campers left, so new arrivals get whatever was there before. - ELewis28

We had a site on the water but wasn't able to actually see the water because of the bushes that were in the way. - Barb Stout
