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. We camped at MainStay Cottages and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at MainStay Cottages and RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here for one week, and this campground is the end of our journey north before we head home to Texas. We have to say that this campground was the best we've stayed in during our entire trip. We had 50 amp electricity, water, sewer, and a great view of Henry's Cove, which is an inlet off of the Atlantic Ocean. This campground is small, with only 10 spaces, but every space has a great waterfront view. The owners of MainStay are very courteous and accommodating. One evening they were cooking lobsters for their family, and they offered to add ours to the pot. The owners have lived in this area for many years and are very knowledgeable and helpful of the places to see and the best restaurants. There are no public showers, but we didn't need them. They do have a laundry room with cold water wash (at no charge), and "solar" drying on a clothes line. They offer Wi-Fi to their customers, and it is reliable. We had good Dish satellite reception, and our Verizon phones worked, but not consistently. They are very close to Acadia National Park, which we toured during the day and relaxed at the campground at night. We will stay here if we ever return to Maine and highly recommend it to others. We camped at MainStay Cottages and RV Park in a Motorhome.

There is a free bus service that stops at the park and will take you to points of interest in the Gouldsboro area. We took this ride and it is very worthwhile. Also, during low tide, we walked down to the shore and collected sea glass. Winter Harbor have a great 5&10 store, and everything is within walking or biking distance.

The spot are close together which could be a problem except the views and area are beautiful I would recommend you try it if in the area. It is on the "Sleepy" side of Acadian National Park and only a few minutes away. It is about an hour to the main site and Bar Harbor. All hookups are new and included in the price. No cable that I was aware of though I did not look or ask. We were too busy. Power is excellent and never gave us a problem. WiFI was very good for us. Not fast but it did never seem to have a problem. The managers are eager to help and keep the place spotless. There is not currently a bathroom or laundry. Roger is trying to work on that. All sites appear to be flat. As opposed to most parks, you'll be asked if you want the view to be out your front window or out your awning. That will depend upon the site and may mean pulling in forward or backing in. All part of the service. We camped at MainStay Cottages and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Please note up front this is a park for self contained campers. They have no rest room facilities. Also children are welcomed but there are no activities or facilities for them. The owners are experienced Inn keepers and have added 10 RV sites. The park overlookS Henry's Cove and is set up so you can back a trailer or drive an RV in, thus you can see the water and rocks from your unit. Note that if you have an RV and all drive in sites taken, then you will have to back in or use a long cord and hose. Very nice tables and chairs are at the sites. Sites and drives are crushed stone and level. The sites are close side by side, but you stay here for the Schoodic Section of Acadia Park and the view. Great small park on the idea of Betty's in Abbeville LA. Here you come for the quiet and the view. We camped at MainStay Cottages and RV Park in a Motorhome.
