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.

Rate reflects a discount from 1000 Trails. This is an Encore park and not bad, kind of a weird layout, first pull in (back out) park we have stayed at. Had 50 amp, water, sewer, and cable. Wi-Fi was available at the Rec Center for free. Close to Bar Harbor. Sites were fairly level and the park was not busy at all when we stayed...half full at best. Light at entrance makes easy access and lobster pounds were close, as well as an IGA for supplies. Had some sites on the water and pull-throughs, but we were on a discounted rate so weren't that lucky. Would stay there again if we came back to Maine. Our rig is 38' long. We camped at Narrows Too Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

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.

Great over all place. This area is expensive. This campground is right before you go over the bridge onto Mt. Desert. This is a corporate owned RV camp that has had some improvements. it has nice level gravel spots. Not too crowded. Good roads, great staff, the view is lovely to the ocean/bay. There are lots of different options; views are expensive but they have cheaper areas too. All hookups work great. Good cell coverage. The Wi-Fi is pay to use but we do not use it anyway. There are great lobster pounds right down the road. Down east is the best all around for lobster and crab for sure. Simple and the best prices but they don't have a huge menu. The crab roll is simple on simply perfectly toasted bun. Very amazing. Ate lobster and crab every day so this ended up being the best place. The CG is an easy drive into Acadia or Bar Harbor or any of the other areas. Great heated pool. Very open for the most part but some shaded areas. Lots of motor homes, maybe because it was really easy access. Some of the other places looked smaller and wooded. If you need cell coverage make sure you stay in this area and not on the quiet side around Bass Harbor. We camped at Narrows Too Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We used the ReadyCampGo rate for $23/night. The staff was friendly and accommodating for our 42' RV. The site that they had originally suggested was not long enough truck and rig so they suggested another site which had a better view of Frenchman's Bay. Clean, quiet park, thoroughly enjoyed our time there and can't wait to go back!!! We camped at Narrows Too Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We paid price for premium site across the road from the ocean. All we saw were trees and other rv's. We'd been better off staying in a select pull-thru away from the water, but they were tiered somewhat and saw more water than we did. They also have a $3 resort fee and then another fee thru Tengo for internet. Not sure we would stay here again at these prices, though they all seem to be getting it in this area. Gravel roads were dusty; Laundromat was not air conditioned and there were no benches outside to sit while waiting. Washer price: $2.50/dryer $2. Campground was only half-full. On the plus side, good location for touring Acadia, with lots of lobster stands nearby. Natl. Park was very busy with limited parking. We camped at Narrows Too Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

For the life of me I cannot understand why Narrows Too is only 1/2 full in high season, and that was also our experience when we were last here two summers ago. Perhaps it is because the address is Trenton rather than Bar Harbor, but it is located literally just across the causeway from Mount Desert Island. It is ideal for big rigs, and there is not a bad site that I can see in the park. Sites are level, gravel as is the access road, super easy to navigate for big rigs. The laundry room is top notch. The park features a nice small heated pool, several lovely clean bath houses, plenty of lush grassy areas and flower beds throughout the park (a real plus if you have dogs), a friendly and helpful staff, all just a few steps from the water overlook if you don't choose one of the more expensive waterfront sites. Several excellent lobster pounds are right outside the campground entrance, with a helpful new stop light on Route 3 making access much easier than in previous years -- and you can't miss it! Plan on about 15 minutes driving time to Bar Harbor with good restaurants and quaint shops, and the same distance to Ellsworth with a Walmart Supercenter, two large supermarkets (Hannaford and Shaws) and all the customary restaurants, etc. If that's not enough, Bangor is about 40 minutes away. Easy day trips to beautiful Blue Hill, Bucksport and other Maine attractions. Acadia National Park is a must on anyone's bucket list. Only minus I can see is when people don't use common sense and drive slowly in the park, does raise some dust from the gravel roadways on dry days if not careful. The park does not really cater to children since the only real amenity is the pool, and most big coaches are owned by the baby boomer age group. Our preference, but families with young children might be happier in another park. We are staying a bit over 3 months in a premium or medium grade site (meaning not waterfront, although we can see the water) and this is the average nightly rate, inclusive, that we worked out with management. Shorter term rates are posted on their web site. TengoInternet is available at a charge, but we use our AT&T MiFi quite successfully. Gravel sites and roadway are the only reason I removed one star from my rating, but they are certainly not essential in this park. We camped at Narrows Too Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

We reserved this campground through Encore and the rate shown reflects a mid-week (S-Th) Passport America discount, a $3 daily "resort" fee (we're not Encore members), plus state sales tax. We arrived to the most friendly group of check-in folks we've ever met. The campground is well laid out and immaculately maintained. The interior roads and sites are all coarse gravel so no problems from tracking stuff inside, even during typical Maine smudge. Sites in our area are pull-in with full hookups plus cable on the correct side. During our four day stay in early June, there were only a few others camped here; the "high season" starts June 15. Sites are closer than we prefer, but with so few around, we had no problems. Our Verizon data card and phone service worked very well, so we didn't bother trying to learn how to connect to the Wi-Fi in the park. Restrooms and showers were immaculate. The campground is immediately off Mt. Desert Island, so is convenient to both shopping in Ellsworth and the features of Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor, on the island. If you like lobster, Beal's Lobster Pier in Southwest Harbor is the place to go. Small bizj ets flew over from the nearby airport during the day, but not an issue for us. We'd stay here again, but likely not during high season. We camped at Narrows Too Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

We had a water front site that had fantastic views of Bar Harbor Island. The site are very narrow and meant to be back-in, we drove straight in and put hook-ups under the coach. Because the sites are so narrow it was no problem. The roads are dirt and gravel so very dusty. Not sure if we would stay here again if we could not get water front. Enjoyed our time in the area.

We originally made reservations for an oceanfront site, but the one available was a tight fit for our RV so we opted for one of the Select pull thrus. Rate reflects that site classification. This is in our opinion, truly the only big rig park in the area that has full amenities and is on the Island Explorer route. Both the back in sites down towards the water and even the Select Pull Thrus had a view of the water when you were outside. Site and park was beautifully maintained. The laundry facilities, bathroom and shower rooms were excellent. Check in procedure was well organized with a nice office and camp store. Personnel were helpful and professional. The seasonal sites are away from the transient sites and are neatly maintained as well. We camped at Narrows Too Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate is with Ready Camp Go. Very nice spot with clean pool, level sites, close to water, and close to shops / national park. One drawback is the proximity to the airport - luckily there are not too many flights. Overall though worth the money. We would stay again. We camped at Narrows Too Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

I don't think we would stay here again. This park lost points as follows: Minus 2 points for Tengo internet, that was horrible, and we had to pay extra for it, Minus 1 point for extreme dust, Minus 1 point for noise (the camp ground is at the end of the runway for the Bar Harbor airport) and Minus 1 point for lack of enforcement of rules. We have encountered a number of dogs off lead and people race through here like they are on fire (including the employees and work campers), which is horribly unsafe and creates clouds of horrible dust. We drove through many other RV parks here that we would stay at before ever returning here. We camped at Narrows Too Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

Location good, sites level, water pressure 60+, electric good all week until today with only 104 and 113 on the two lines. One A/C can run. Most difficult is the dust. No one adheres to the 5 mpg and there is NO effort to minimize the dust created through an oil base or periodic water. Would still return. We camped at Narrows Too Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

It's clean, almost spartan, this Corporate entity. Highly impersonal, it lacks identity. A heated pool, and cable, some trees but very few. Over a "hundred" bucks for what they claim is "Ocean View". Overall for what you get, it all seems overpriced. Even with a discount, I paid $66.00 a night. I've looked about and realize, no reason to return, a score of "7" out of 10, is what the "Narrows Too", has earned. We camped at Narrows Too Camping Resort in a Motorhome.
