Great Family Campground about 40 minutes outside of Acadia. We were told to stay here by some friends and we are so glad we did! Beautiful views of the coast and clean campsites. Helpful and friendly staff.
The owner's were pleasant and helpful! Beautiful sunrises every morning! Found beach glass out on the beach, which was very exciting. We now have the beach glass bug! The sites are really nice. The showers were really nice. They have recycling for bottles, plastic, cardboard,...More
Two months ahead of our planned trip I booked a 3 night long weekend at a "honeymoon" walk in tent site. We planned to travel from Massachusetts late afternoon Friday after work, with a predicted arrival time between 6:30 and 7:30 pm. The "fine print"...More

We're sorry to hear our check-in policy didn't work for you. Your boyfriend knew this policy well ahead of time and seemed very understanding. Astrig took a lot of time trying to explain the reason we do not allow late check-ins on particular...More
We had a campsite right on the Penobscot Bay & it was the most beautiful view ever. This Campground is a hidden gem.....wooded, beautifully landscaped, clean restrooms & showers. The owners, Astrig & Steve, are such wonderful, warm people. Our site had a deck &...More
Excellent views of the bay if you get a waterfront site. Scenery great! However this place is overpriced. I can't believe they have minimums of 7 days on some sites, or others. Agree with the other poster on the overpriced lobster bake. Hit the Anglers...More
More of a comment really...i am a dog lover & dog owner, but a campground is NO PLACE for barking dogs. For that reason, we always board ours when we camp. Yes, we miss her, but we wouldn't inflict that on others. If you have strict dog policies, that makes me WANT to stay there...which we might try & do memorial wknd if you aren't booked

My wife and I have lived with a dog in our families since being young children so we know how important it is to have them along on family adventures. To make that work in a campground we ask that pet owner's are diligent in the management of their animal by keeping them with them and leashed at all times, not allowing uncontrolled barking, always cleaning up after them, only bringing them if they are friendly towards others and carrying their vet.papers along.
To help with these policies we have an enclosed dog park, miles of trails and beach to exercise your dog so they can be relaxed with the family back at the site. I know I've been called prickly on occasion when asking pet owners to better manage their dogs. It is tricky to balance the pleasure/ comfort of others with the behavior of your/ our loved, very special dogs. But we'll keep trying to make it the best we can for everyone so that we can remain a dog friendly park without disrupting the vacations of non-pet owners.
Thank you for letting us know your concerns,
