This was the most pristine campground I have ever been to We stayed at E30 site. Great because it was a little more secluded. The only difficulty would be you have to get up a small rocky slope. It is a wooded site away from the water. The sites with water views were a little more crowded and had more children. We are empty nesters so we liked the quiet spot.
Nice wooded platform to put your tent and picnic table on. Small fireplace that works just fine for a fire to add effect. We did cook on it one night, but bring your coleman stove..

There are bath facilities for each area. Very clean. Four quarters for five minutes which was good enough. Outlet for hair drier when youve had enough of looking like the swamp thing.

They sell coffee and local baked goods each morning and have ice cream for sale in the evening at The Gathering place, which has wi-fi.

They have canoes and kayaks. We canoed one day. For kids, you can buy little crab catching kits. If you have children they will not be bored here.

I loved the area the campground was. Close enough to Bar Harbor or for us to go to dinner at Thurstons (ate there twice) , or Beals. Both excellent food.

It was also close enough to drive to all of our hiking biking areas. There is also an Island Shuttle that takes you and your bike everywhere.

The hosts were very informative and friendly. I would go back. As a matter of fact, I did not want to leave.

THe one drawback. You could hear the highway and noise from garbage and septic truck. Trade off for convenience. If you want pure quiet not the place for you.

We had site C13. The platform was large enough for our 10 X 14 ft. tent. The view from the site was lovely (because of the steep drop off, this particular site would not be good for young children). The campground was exceptionally quiet. The bathrooms were clean. My only complaint was that $1 for a 5 minute shower is expensive compared to most campgrounds we have visited.

Room Tip: The water views are the best!

Just got back, been there around 11 times. It's a quiet campground. It's mainly for tents and features nice platforms, they only allow in so many pop-up trailers. It's very wooded, but less so along the ocean sites. Everyone that goes loves it and most are repeat customers.BEST PART: Super Clean Bathrooms! They are cleaned multiple times per day. Great central location on Mt Desert Island for going places. Not much to do at campground except there is a long floating dock where people can rent kayaks and kids can go crabbing. My only complaint is that the shower stalls are too small.

The campground was beautiful with all of the trees and the lake. We were a bit surprised by our site as it was filled with roots and rocks leaving very little flat ground. However, we will definitely choose it again when we go back to Maine. The bathrooms were extremely clean!

Tent camping next to the sound was amazing. The basic amenities Makes for an easy getaway weekend in the NE, without the need to own much more than a tent and sleeping bags. Bathrooms were clean, and water was hot.

Room Tip: Choose the Waterfront!
