22 RV Parks near Winter Harbor, Maine

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

Park is located just as you get onto Mount Desert Island. Good location for all sites on the island: Bar Harbor, Acadia National Park, etc.
Sites were easy to get into, services well located. Park is well laid out and easy to navigate.
Not having sewer maybe an issue for long stay. We were only 3 nights & dump station was easy to access on the way out. - Our-Wandering-Casa

We stayed here as a starting point to a RV Tour down the East Coast. We had a select pull thru spot. It was level gravel with plenty of room for our slides and our tow car. The airport noise was a bit much but not bad enough to not stay here. We walked to a lobster pound down the street and had great lobster. If you have a clear day, make the drive into Acadia and go to the top of Cadillac Mountain. Also go to Jordan's Pond and have the AMAZING POPOVERS!! Worth every cent. - Weld304

We paid extra for a waterfront site - I wouldn't do that again at this park, I would grab a traditional site elsewhere. The water and beachfront is accessible to all, and sites along the water are tight and at a premium. Not much for kids to do there except ride their bikes - pool was closed for the season (expected so not a big deal) but no playground or field, etc... close to everything so that part was nice. We were fortunate to get the site we did (double site) but others along the water were much narrower... approximately 16' is what I paced off for width on others in the 300's. Well maintained park and roads. - Matt7571

We don't need or use any of the amenities as we are just two old people in a very large, self contained tin can. This park is big rig friendly. Very safe entrance and exit as there is a traffic light and a very wide, level access road. We were very pleased with the park and staff. Gravel sites but raked level between every stay. Stay here and take the bus into the park. - Lama79

Beautiful Bay Views from our site. The park is small and very well maintained. There is both 30 and 50 amp power at each site, WiFi was very fast. The owners are on site and are an excellent source of info. They helped us find some of the most beautiful places to hike; for those who don't hike, the coastal drives are amazing There are many excellent places to eat seafood. We will be back. - Tfrout

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

This facility is easily reached and any updated GPS will take you right to the registration station. The roads in the park are paved, wide, and there are no trees to snag your rig. We were in B loop and our site was hard packed gravel, level, and all utilities were conveniently placed. There is excellent separation between sites and ample shade from surrounding trees. Over the air TV channels were spotty and usually worked either early morning or late afternoon. This campground is isolated, stress free but over an hour's ride from most major attractions in Bar Harbor. This is a place to come to get away from it all, hike or bike the numerous trails in the area, or traverse the loop road. Restrooms and entire park are new as of 2015, so kept immaculate. There are showers and laundry facilities in Winter Harbor at a price. We would stay here again. - William T

We stayed in site A-38 which was a back-in with plenty of privacy and spacious. Loop A has 20 amp service and water spigots around the camping area. This is an outstanding park only 3 years old and they did everything right except one thing, NO SHOWERS. All sites are level and spacious I did not see a bad site in loop A. Loop A also has some beautiful walk in tent sites. Loop B is all pull throughs and has 50 amp electric and water at sites. As I said in my review last year Schoodic Woods is the alter ego of the Bar Harbor side of Acadia NP, quiet and laid back. Not to disparage The Mount Desert Island part of the park we love visiting there but it is a totally different experience. Which ever part of Acadia NP you choose bring you bicycle for great a riding experience. - Ronahue

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

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

We were in a site right on the water. It was beautiful. It was a pull-in site with gravel and grass around the sites. It is a very basic, small campground with no wifi (at least at the sites on the water). The sites near the road include sewer. There is a dump station. The ones near the water are only electric and water. If you are interested in spending most of your time in or near Bar Harbor, there are many closer campgrounds. However, if you like peace and quiet, this is the campground for you. Considering there are no amenities, we thought the price was a little high. - Ceil-54

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

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

Nothing good to say about this park. Crowded camping. Poorly managed, unlevel sites. - Tomandmrss

We always have CG reservations when we travel so we were nervous about planning a full week at a CG that doesn't take reservations. Luckily that wasn't a problem in mid-September. There is lots of turnover at this CG and probably always a site available but not necessarily the type of hookups you may want. We thought the 50amp sites were not at all scenic, so we went with 30amp/water/sewer which was fine. Full hookup pull-through sites were very popular and that section was almost always full so we would recommend getting there around 9-10am as folks are leaving. Other sections in the CG had lots of availability. No seasonals that we could see. This campground is nothing special but it had everything we needed, reasonable prices, and is very convenient to Bar Harbor and Acadia NP. We loved that the Island Explorer (a free bus that runs throughout Acadia NP and Bar Harbor) had a frequent stop at the CG. The perimeter roads were good, but the interior roads were tight for 5th wheels. We thought Site B7 was one of the nicest, wide pull-through sites at the CG. We were in C7, and that site was good too. The few "ocean view" sites were quite close together and frankly the view is pretty far out there. The laundry facility was clean, large, and only $1 for wash and $1 for dry. - Smashcamp

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

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
