22 RV Parks near Winter Harbor, Maine

All about location and the view! Some spots are better than others depending on if you are in a motorhome or trailer. Spot 7 in a motorhome was perfect; windshield faced the bay and no neighbor to the right. Two sites use a common connection area so one side of the rv is extremely close to the other, only room to walk between. Not a big deal unless you park reverse for best view; could have your door right next to a rig.
Check their site map and if possible work site that is best for your rig. Can't beat the location and view. Quiet. We will gladly stay here again! Wonderful hosts! - z32k12

This small park gets high marks for a spectacular setting, ideal location for sightseeing, nice level pads and services, free washer and clothesline (solar dryer!) and good wifi. The proprietors are friendly and helpful and take pride in their facility and town. The downsides are: VERY close together sites sharing the same pedestal. We could NOT put out our awning all the way. The way to avoid this is to book early and request a sideview slot rather than a front view one...there are only a couple or so of those but have much more room. I could not get a Verizon data signal at all when the park was weak but fortunately the wifi was mostly solid...and phone reception was spotty. There are no bathroms, no showers, no pool, no swimming, no playground, no clubhouse etc. ....You are buying a well equipped parking spot with solid water, electric, sewer and wifi...and a spectacular water view in a clean and quiet central location. I gave it an 8 for the beauty! We would return. - Camaraderie

First things first - the owners are absolutely wonderful. They are very friendly (offered me a beer when we showed up), very helpful, and just great to talk to. This is a very simple RV park with just 10 sites, no bathrooms or showers. Great location right on the harbor. We were initially put off by the RV's lined right up close to each other. But, after we set up, sat at the table and chairs supplied, and looked over the harbor during late afternoon, that didn't bother us a bit. Mornings are gorgeous, too, drinking your coffee and watching for eagle and osprey feeding in the harbor. The grounds are very simple, but very well-maintained. The park is walking distance to town and the bar Harbor ferry. The Schoodic section of Acadia NP is just down the street, less than a mile. There is nice bike riding at Schoodic and the Winter Harbor area. What is great is that you are removed from the Bar Harbor nuttiness. The site was level, good 50A power, and big rigs should have no problem. Wi-fi was good, and Verizon service was good. We're looking forward to going back. - Merlinmurph

This would be an almost perfect campground if it had showers. It's camping like it should be, rather than an amusement park with campsites. It has beautiful hiking trails, sweet biking trails, free shuttles to some of the most beautiful scenery in the eastern U.S., clean and up-to-date everything . . . except showers. Sorry tent campers. If it did have showers, it would be my current standard or gauge for what a great campground should be. It's still near the top and a great achievement by the National Park Service. - jerry6

This is a terrific National Park. Designed and built for the kind of "camping" Americans do these days. We were in the B section. Almost all pull through, able to accommodate the largest RVs, water and electric. The A section is larger and most spots would accommodate large RVs, electric only. This is not the "Bar Harbor experience." There are no T shirt shops, no fudge shops. This is Acadia. Great drives along the rocky Maine coast. Great bicycle paths, great hiking. Great sites for everything from large motor homes to small walk-in tent sites. Park operates a free shuttle all along the peninsula, including the town of Winter Harbor, where there are restaurants and some shopping. - mroswell

Lovely, large, level spaces. Decent privacy from other campers although we could hear kids at spot behind our. We stayed in Loop A to be away from motor homes. Loop B has both electric and water. Loop A has electric only. Restrooms and entire park are new as of 2015, so kept immaculate. Clean, big outdoor dish sink at restrooms. Wood sold nearby at VERY reasonable cost. Note, showers are available at a commercial facility in Otter Point close to other NPS campgroud. - pakngo

We stayed 4 nights in site #A80, pull-thru site with no hookups that's fairly tight to get into, but doable. There is a bathroom a short walk away (toilets and sink but no showers). Pay showers are available 5 minutes away outside the park. They were just okay. The campground itself is right off the main road and convenient to all that the island offers. It is clean, very woodsy, and the shuttles stop in the campground. We had full LTE (AT&T). If you can get by with no hookups, this is a good, centrally located, inexpensive place to stay. - texasAUtiger

Nice campground in woods - sites are separated by trees and other natural vegetation. Sites are dirt / gravel and many are on a grade, requiring leveling blocks. We arrived midweek in shoulder season and were able to get in without a reservation. It is strongly suggested to have reservations from Father's Day through the end of September as Acadia is a very popular destination. There was a dump station on the way out of the campground - I can imagine a long line after busy weekends so if you don't need to dump, wait until your next destination. - yesmar

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

Stayed for 8 days. If you book a week you get a night free. Good place, nothing fancy. We heard road noise but oh well, after hiking each day it did not matter. Site was clean, Owner is very nice. We had a good verizon signal. Satellite could not acquire due to the chestnut tree. No biggie, watched dvr when not out. - KodiTzu

Could be a nice cg as it is on the water with some nice views. Big rig fhu sites are very close to Rt 1 so quite a bit of traffic noise. Not too bad though. We had a very large site with a water view so that made this week manageable. 2 dog areas but they are just open spaces with a path mowed through them. No play room and definitely not off-the-leash time. Trash smell was horrible and not picked up until Saturday. Lots of handmade signs telling you "No Rugs on Grass". There were only weeds growing through gravel so I don't understand the reason for the signs. Owner was very pleasant and helpful. Runs an antique shop on the site. My take is that the cg provides income to support the preferred antique business. Fire pit and picnic table were in good shape. - FT Travelers3

This is a simple RV/Tent campground on a parcel between Rt 1 and a narrows off of Frenchman Bay with a view of Mts. Cadillac and Champlain. Each site is priced differently based on amenities and are reasonably level with minimal adjustment. Back-in sites along the entrance road have sewer, those in a loop around the grassy meadow do not. Most around the loop are pull-throughs. Tent sites were mostly in the trees. There is a shower house and a dump station. Voltage and water were good. A/C & electric heat are an extra fee; A/C is probably not needed for most of the season. Wi-Fi was accessible from the sites closer to the front and top of the loop, not closer to the shore; speed was adequate for email, etc. We could get OTA channels 7.1 & 7.2, but the antenna had to be pointed correctly. We were on the ring and could see the water. Some mornings are perfect for watching a sunrise over Mt. Cadillac, others completely in fog. Sometimes a distant fog horn is heard. We didn't notice any traffic noise from Rt 1. While the campground rules are pretty much standard, they have felt a need to post them around the campground similar to Burma Shave signs. The parallel sites were about average in proximity to neighbors; some were quite large. The prices are not out of line for this popular region. - Trailbuddy

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

Rate of $40.00 per night is for full hookups, no discount offered, payment is cash or check only - no credit/debit cards. There is an ATM in the lobby. All previous reviews appear accurate. Sites vary throughout the campground, many are in an alcove, heavily shaded and private that would typically be found in a state park. Our site and patio area was gravel, on an incline with a splattering of grass around and open to the sky, no shade, easy access for satellite dish. Hookups were on the left side of the RV and worked as intended. Each site had a picnic table and fire ring. Verizon and T Mobile had a weak signal, Sprint a bit better. Free scheduled shuttle to surrounding area and downtown. Did not use or checkout bathrooms/showers or local WIFI. All employees were very friendly and eager to help with directions and suggestions. Fair value for area, we would stay here again. - ECM1

Well established large CG with easy access. Sites tend to the small side. Staff is exceptionally friendly. Restrooms and showers are extremely small, they seem to date from the 60's. A good value for the area. - Maine-iacs

This is a big and busy campground that can handle the pressure. I was amazed that such a busy campground could keep bathhouses clean and everything functional. Everything worked as expected or better. You can't go too far wrong here. Most of the previous comments are still valid. I'm just updating. We found a private spot that we liked just fine and could have settled in for a week or more. - jerry6

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

The bathrooms across from our camper were absolutely spotless! The showers were not very close to our campsite so we did not use them. The folks were friendly and check in was easy. You can take a short walk to a beach and watch the sun set.
The campground is 15 miles to a Walmart, 10 minutes to Bar Har and 15-20 minutes to the visitor center in Acadia National Forest. We would definitely stay here again. - Lil camper

This is one of the least expensive campground on the island. Keep telling yourself that and you won't be disappointed. We were in a W/E site in the "B" loop. Site was level and had more space than the other sections. We had two low voltage alarms during our stay. The bathrooms in "B" loop were clean but the stalls were so short that it was very uncomfortable to use. Can't comment on the WiFi because it doesn't reach the "B" loop. I don't think we will return to this campground. - Larry 0908

We rented a Class A, as ours was in the shop, and traveling with 2 other RV'ers. Had EL and Water, no dump at site. No cable, The will come and dump for $6/ a day, or $12 on demand. There is a shuttle to the Village Green in Bar Harbor, where you can pick up another shuttle to other parts of the island. Shuttle bus alows pets. All are no charge. Campground is privately owned, and no discounts are available. Less costly that others on the island. Also some of the others do not have the free shuttle bus. .50 cents for showers, central dumpsters, propane refills $10/gallon. - Long Island Mac

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

This is a large park on Rt. 3 about 5 miles from Acadia. It is an Encore park and accepts Passport America which made the stay much more affordable that neighboring parks. There are all sorts of hook-up options in various combinations. I stayed in a water & electric site with little shade. It was a grass site that overlooked a beautiful bay. My site required multiple leveling blocks as it sloped side-to-side. The site had a fire ring and picnic table. Some sites were totally shaded, graveled, appeared level and had full-hook-ups. Interior roads are paved or gravel.
The swimming pool water was nasty my entire stay of six days, thus the 2 stars for cleanliness. The laundry was clean and the sites/fire pits were picked up. The free wife had multiple wireless connection points. The free Bar Harbor shuttle bus stopped at the park. It was surprising to see a car slowly navigating the park in the early evening selling homemade pies. It was soon followed by an ice cream truck. My rate doesn't reflect the actual rate I paid since I had a mixture of PPA and low & high season rates. - SunStar203

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
