Great small park overlooking Henry's Cove. If all coaches set up to over look the water. Some will be tight together, but the view is worth it. They have added a washer and as noted they have a solar dryer. Owners live on site and are very helpful. - peddy dick

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

Acadia National Park - Schoodic Woods Campground, Winter Harbor, Maine Cost with w & e $40 Golden Age pass will be less but electricity is not part of the pass. There is a Acadia National Park entrance fee or Golden Age pass.
This campground was built through donations and with NPS guidelines. It was then turned over to the NPS and opened just last fall for five weeks. This is the first full season for this beautiful park. Two loops - A Loop with about 50 sites, twelve of those have 30 amps and the rest 20 amps. A walk in tent area with 9 sites all carry in. The B Loop has 33 sites with w& 30/50 amps. The sites are huge with privacy and as these trees grow there will be even more shade in the next ten years. The bathrooms are clean, clean, clean and new. No showers and the rangers can tell you where to go for fee showers in the area. Everything is new here bike trails on gravel, roads, sites, dump station, and the lighted walks all around the park with trail signs. Pets are welcome and even on the free shuttles that go around the area to Schoodic Point and the villages in the area. The park has bags around the park to pick up after your pet. It would be nice for everyone to use them. Great drivers on the free shuttles, you wave them down anywhere and if you want to be dropped off in the villages at a restaurant they will take you to the door as long as its along the route. The check in lodge is beautiful with a big fireplace, seats and rangers to help you with places to see. Outside they have a waiting area with benches, bike and pet tie up poles and water bowls for your pets. This section of Acadia takes about an hour plus from the Bar Harbor area to get here 17 miles north of Ellsworth and it is beautiful. Sometimes you can see seal pups on the rocks as you ride around or hike. Bike trails go from the campground to the south and north loop as well as to Winter Harbor. There are three little villages along this route and the. - gsnakehill

Campground is only 1 year old, and was designed for modern equipment. The site was HUGE! We had a trailer and reserved a site that said it was good for up to 20 feet, but the driveway was over 60 feet long. No issue getting in/or or parking the tow vehicle. Only other site we could see from our site was directly across from us. No water on the A loop, but the B loop has both W/E. Bike trail around the park was great, little traffic (unlike on main peninsula). Didn't use the ferry to Bar Harbor, but understand one is available. Got 6 or so TV channels from the antenna, and a weak WiFi from the rangers. Great trip! - brentp

This would be a 10 if it were a bit closer to Mt Desert Island, but perhaps the distance limits the crowds and it has everything else right for a NPS campground. They offer group, tent, limited service RV sites and nice long level pullthroughs with good 20/30/50A service and water. The wifi worked well at our site. OTA TV is a bust, so bring a dish if you want to watch. The campground was built by an anonymous person(s) along with 8.5 miles of newly constructed bike paths, 4 miles of hiking trails and it and about 1400 acres of land adjacent to the existing NPS land were donated to the NPS upon completion last year. Tax dollars and park fees could not have built a nicer facility. Winter harbor has a small grocery and the surrounding villages all host "lobstah" shacks and restaurants. Firewood is not sold in the campground, but there are several honor-box wood sheds along the side of the roads outside of the park. Area is great for bicycles. - Trailbuddy

Acadia National Park - Blackwoods Campground
Two Loops A with 152 sites and B with 138. Cost $30 and with the Golden Age Pass half that fee. No services, clean bathrooms available which are old and showers can be found right outside the campground entrance for a fee. There is a small grocery store right outside the entrance as well with wood and a lobster pit. The free LLBean shuttles pick you up at the campground from the last week in June until Columbus Day to take you all around the island. I have reviewed this campground as well as Seawall in Southwest Harbor many times over the years and not much has changed. Make reservations because at Blackwoods they have limited RV sites and do not seem to be putting even small units in some tent sites in which they would fit. We love this campground, it's beauty, the ranger talks, the walk down to the cliffs on Loop Road and hiking. So much to do in the area with Jordan Pond, Bar Harbor, Sand Beach, Ranger walks and talks, tours to the islands from Bar Harbor, Northeast and Southwest Harbors. This is just a great National Park. This fall though it was the most crowded that we have seen it in almost 30-40 years of camping here. The Loop Road had cars parked and backed up on the side of the road and there were many traffic jams. Jordan Pond parking lot was full before noon and many hiking trails parking lots were full before 8 am. Acadia now has three great campgrounds - Blackwoods, Seawall and the new one Schoodic Woods. Blackwoods is the closest to Bar Harbor and the Loop Road so we always stay here at least three nights and many times visit the others for two or more nights. Reservations are needed for all three especially for RV's. Yes, you can get in sometimes just showing up but you have to keep going down the next morning to check if any sites are available and if you have to move. Everyone should camp in Acadia National Park and enjoy it as much as we do. - gsnakehill

Acadia is awesome, . . . and if you want to stay in the park near the main areas, this is your choice. Campground was old, and some of the sites were close and had trees to navigate. The roads and turns are not 'big rig' friendly in my opinion. However, for the small/medium units, more than adequate. You can hike or bike from the campground, but plan your trip. Biking is one way on the park loop road and would be tough to get back unless you load onto the shuttle bus. We opted to drive to our bike/hiking trails and then drive back.
Some sites are set up backwards (ours was). The picnic table and fire ring were on the drivers side (utility side) of our trailer. If you like your table and campfire right outside your door ask the ranger before he assigns your site. - brentp

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

A convenient location on Route 1, but surprisingly quiet. It is off the highway a bit and located on a beautiful harbor. You can walk along the beach and watch the working fishing boats. There were only 4 other RVs when we were there. No laundry available onsite. The campground is behind a little antique store that the owner runs. Location is close to Schoodic Peninsula - the "quiet" part of Acadia. We enjoyed it here very much.
Would stay here again. - Cape Cod kayaker

Park is behind eclectic antique store. Office is in store.
Sites closer to the office (and Hwy 1) are full service. We opted for PW site closer to the water. No road noise.
We booked in for 2 nights so we could visit Bar Harbor and Acadia NP. Both were very busy but we're glad we made the trip. Owner gave us short cut instructions to Bar Harbor which bypassed Ellsworth.
We would stay here again. - DCM/JMB

This is one of the best RV parks we have been to! Right on the water, right between the two parts of Acadia National Park. Nice and quiet, and not in the middle of the chaos in Bar Harbor.
But you can't beat the views. You can see Cadillac Mountain, see the water and walk the rocky shoreline. - FrugalNavyWife

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

We came in on the Friday after labor day and got one of the three water/electric sites left. Very busy for this time of year. We come here every year. Showers are 25¢ but clean and roomy. Sites are not level, sadly. People at check in are very friendly. They don't take credit cards nor reservations. You pick your own site, a definite perk. We wish they would expand to more electric/water! Ocean views at top are great. - Corninggirl

Had spent two nights in Acadia NP but it was filled the third night so ended at Bar Harbor. Plenty of sites here, made for a better stay, not having all the sites around you filled. The grounds are fine, showers are the smallest I've seen, nice sink area. I would call the decor "early 90's commercial campground".
Great location, we drove to the visitor center and parked, used the free busses to tour the park. - fudge_brownief

We have camped here many times and always found them friendly and helpful. At times we have arrived late when the campground is full, but they have put us up in an overflow area for one night and we were able to get a site the next day. An added plus, in Late July and early August, the area behind the pool is LOADED with blueberries that are yours for the picking. - dfougere

Lamoine State Park, Lamoine Island, Maine- 62 sites unserviced. You can make reservations here until Labor Day but not available or needed in the fall. Sites of different sizes and some with views of Frenchmen Bay looking out to Acadia. Many are not level. Located 8 miles south of Ellsworth with boating, swimming, hiking in a beautiful setting. Cost $32.70 for someone from another state. We have camped here many times and it was just a one night stay for us. Bathrooms are clean with hot showers. This is just a beautiful place to stay. Fishing boats leave the harbor every morning and you can watch them come back in with their catch. Sometimes you can buy a lobster or two right from the boats. Sunsets are beautiful and looking out you can even see Cadillac Mountain. 56 M is a beautiful site overlooking the bay! - gsnakehill

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 for 4 days to visit Acadia National Park. No hookups, so be prepared for some boondocking. There weren't very many people, the campground was maybe only half full. It's right on the coast next to some docks. There were a lot of fishing boats moored out in the bay, and it was fun to watch them come and go sometimes. I'd much rather stay here than in an overcrowded National Park campground. - Rover Travels

This campground is located perhaps 3 miles from the entrance to Acadia National Park. The park runs a bus service by all the campgrounds and to and from the park, Bar Harbor, etc. which is very convenient. Driving through Bar Harbor is pretty tight in a big RV. This campground has pay showers (a pet peeve of mine). People here are very helpful.
There are 5 loops and they can help you figure out what you like. Loop D had some more private sites near trees but probably wouldn't accommodate very large RVs. - Cape Cod kayaker

This campground is easy to get into, level sites, good WIFI and a bonus of the bus that will take you to town. The staff was very accommodating and helpful. We enjoyed our week at this campground. We appreciated the quiet evenings. - twotimes

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 park on top of hill. I wouldn't suggest big rigs for upper loop. Strange setup of campsites. We arrived in dark with two RV (one 19'TT and one 31' FW). Neither sites were easy to setup in. Electric and water hookups were in wrong places, needed extra cords and hoses required to reach. No dump station or sewer hookups. You would need to used Acadia NP campground with an additional fee for park pass. Bathrooms clean, but extra charge for hot water in shower. Extra charge for big rigs, not worth it without any extra amenities, such as, hot water, dump station or sewer hookup. Staff friendly. Good location. I would not camp here again or recommend. Good views from our campsites. The campground was pretty empty due to end of season. - Ridingtheroads

A very beautiful campground. We were located above the rock quarry with a view of the sound. Very close to the national park as well as Bar Harbor. We had a large site which was fairly level and shaded. The grocery store was close by. I would have rated this place higher but I had some concerns. First you had to pay extra for hot water for your showers and for dumping. I thought the high rate should have covered that. I was told everyone in the area charges the same. Be prepared. Second concern was for security. Our site was about 20ft from a neighborhood road. There should have been a fence separating us. - kenbarbie

We chose this particular campground because of its location on the "quiet side" of the island near where I wanted to take a lot of photos. The campground is much better suited to tent camping than to RV's. I guess I didn't do my homework thoroughly as we a few "add on" charges I didn't anticipate. The dump station costs extra according to your unit size! The Wi-Fi was down and not available until our last day here. The only bathhouse was fairly new but not at all well maintained. There were many porta-potties spread throughout the tent only camping area. The staff was quite friendly but the office was often unattended and they had very few items for sale. Some RV sites would be difficult to maneuver into but we had a nice level site with easy access. - gilr

Oct in Maine, beautiful scenery, right on the water. 2nd day you get a discount.
Level lots, leaking water on several lots.
Had cable tv but I had to jury rig the cable and fitting to use it, the office didn't have a fitting so I used my work experience to get it working.
Bar Harbor and Arcadia National Park are beautiful. - SubVet SSBN619

This was the most expensive place we have camped in many years around North America. It was by no means special. The roads were in poor shape and the sites small. It was very over priced. It was a great place to stay years ago. - Dragoon
Aug 2016 - $100.00
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
