Ok folks, Maine in the fall. Why are you here? The free trollies stops out in front of the park so you don't have to have a driving vehicle.
This is an Encore RV Resorts community and is located near the bridge leading to Mount Desert Island (MDI). The park is quite large with a variety of site types. Please note that some have hookups on left and some on the right. If it matters to you and you cannot cross your connections be sure you know what you are asking for.
Other reviewers have talked about the gravel road and dust. Yes, true, get over it. It is much better than dirt roads and potholes.
The waterfront sites are mixed with hookups; see above. The 300 series sites are fantastic with some sort of tree/wind break for a bit of privacy between sites. All will accommodate a 40-45 foot fifth wheel or class A but those class As have to work hard to get in if the site across the street is occupied.
NOTE: The 400 series sites on the water are tight. They tell you that so it should not be a surprise. Yes, you can get in and open slides but you are not going to put out awnings if they are mounted on or extend beyond your slides.
Waterfront premium cost premium $$$. Worth it to us but maybe not to you. Lots of other site options that don't cost so much.
Well maintained, great staff, I'd come here again for sure.
We enjoyed every hike we went on. If you are mature like us, pick up the guide for "Easy Day Hikes" and you will find plenty to enjoy. We have been here two weeks with one more to go. Love it. We camped at Narrows Too Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
We enjoy seafood and nature and there was plenty of that here for us.
We did the bioluminescent kayak paddle in Castine. That was fun.
Pick a lobster pound it really doesn't matter. They all serve lobster. The lobster is boiled. It isn't a complicated recipe and they all charged $8.99-$9.99 a pound UNLESS you are in Bar Harbor. Everything is more expensive in Bar Harbor.

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. We camped at Narrows Too Camping Resort in a Motorhome.
Go to Acadia national park!!! And for best lobster go to LuntZ lobster right across street.

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. We camped at Narrows Too Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Narrows Too Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Narrows Too Camping Resort in a Motorhome.
Make sure to see Acadia NP. It is awesome! Hike Cadillac Mountain. Its a dog friendly NP. Visit Nervous Nellies Jams and Jellies, on deer isle.

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. We camped at Narrows Too Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

Price reflects C2C (Good Neighbor) discount. Campground was very easy to find and easy to get into. We stayed here after Labor Day and so the pool was closed. This is a standard "parking lot" style campground. However, they very easily handle big rigs. Our site was large enough for the 5th wheel and jeep. We were able to park the truck at the office (which was very close to our site).
All of the sites are very level. The sites are gravel with a grass area for the picnic table. Gravel roads through the campground, so there was a lot of dust-but the roads are in good shape. It is obvious they take a lot of pride in this resort-it is very clean and well kept. Campground is directly on the ocean, most sites have a view of the water. Campground is very close to Acadia National Park. Good Verizon coverage. Easy to get DirecTV satellite. We would definitely come here again. Pretty view and close to National park; as well as, close to town for shopping. We camped at Narrows Too Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Narrows Too Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

Our price was through RV On the Go we got through Thousand Trails, it was $20 plus $4 resort fee which I think is stupid. Very friendly and easy check in. Gravel roads that are nice and wide so we had no problems with our 40' motorhome with tow vehicle. The sites are gravel and nice and level. Beautiful view of the water, good cable tv but wifi was an additional charge. We could get the Google News home page and GMail for free, but any other page required the password. Nice swimming pool. We camped at Narrows Too Camping Resort in a Motorhome.
Great restaurant across the street to enjoy Maine lobster. We walked there twice. Scenic Bar Harbor is nearby with tons of things to see and do. We took a cruise with "Island Cruise" and had a great time.

We took a tour of the Bar Harbor area via the free bus service which was offered and had a look at other RV sites...we feel we hit a home run with this place. Spacious and quiet with beautiful views of the water,
We were a bit close to RT 3 so there is a constant traffic noise and we're right near the airport so there's the occasional bi-plane and small jet, which being from NYC we could ignore. The areas is awesome, the free buses really come in handy. Very open and spacious sites and we're definitely coming back. We camped at Narrows Too Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.
Enjoy the free buses which go throughout the Island

Stayed 7 days in a Motorhome. Site was unusual, pull in front first, but no problem. WiFi only available at the activity center unless you subscribe to an independent company that covers the rest of the camp. Despite the high price for non-members, we will probably return someday. We camped at Narrows Too Camping Resort in a Motorhome.
Very close to Acadia NP, and if you visit be sure to go the the Schoodic Penn. (where Winter Harbour is). There are beautiful photo opportunities of the rocky shore you do not get at the main park. Nearby Belfast and Stonington are also very nice visits,

I am not sure about the price because it was part of a package from Lazy Days. I liked this campground very much. Couldn't get a pull-through but our back-in site was lengthy and very nice. Full hookup, including water, sewer, 50 amp and cable. Couldn't really see the water from our site, but you could from the pool. The pool was very nice and warm and felt good. The park is easy to get in and out of and conveniently located to Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor. Very nice people in the office also, and quiet at night. We camped at Narrows Too Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.
This park is pretty close to everything. Buy your groceries before you go though because the IGA 3/4 of a mile was high priced..nearly $6 for a dozen eggs! There is a small airport with glider flights nearby but it wasn't noisy at night. Not too bad during the day either.

We stayed here in a premium site that was overlooking the water. Fun to watch the tides go in and out. The park was perfectly located for us in that it's very close to Bar Harbor and Acadia Nat'l Park, with places to eat lobster right across the road. The sites were gravel and ours was level. The only real complaint is that the hookups were not in a good location to the normal hookup sites on an RV. It was necessary to use two water hoses, a 50 amp extension cord, and I had to buy an extension for the sewer hose at the park store. Wi-Fi is TengoInternet, which is more aggravation than service and has to be bought. But they do have a free hotspot if you want to go to a specific location. All in all, we enjoyed the stay and would stay here again if ever in the area. We camped at Narrows Too Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

Nice Encore park. Price is with Thousand Trails discount. Right on the bay with level gravel pull through 50 amp full hookup sites w/cable. Have nice store and pool. Very near Acadia N.P. Most sites have fire rings. Only bad thing is the wifi service. You must sit in a screened in porch that gets very cold. They have an enclosed building but will not unlock it ??? Friendly people. Will stay here again. We camped at Narrows Too Camping Resort in a Motorhome.
Must eat lobster at very nearby Trenton Bridge Lobster Pound!

We stayed here 3 nights under Passport America. We have a back-in site up where the work campers stay. It is a nice site but a ways from the higher priced sites. We are near the highway and entrance so hear a lot of traffic. It is the end of the season and if they wanted to sell us on the CG there are plenty of sites that are close to the water that would have impressed us. The park is neat and clean and the work campers are friendly. One plus is we are close to the free Wi-Fi hotspot at the activities building so we can use it in the coach. They charge down in the other sites to get it in your coach. All in all we had a nice visit and enjoyed our stay. The site is long enough and level. We camped at Narrows Too Camping Resort in a Motorhome.
We enjoy seafood and nature and there was plenty of that here for us. We did the bioluminescent kayak paddle in Castine. That was fun. Pick a lobster pound it really doesn't matter.
