This was THE best campground we have ever stayed in!! The sites are large and we never felt "cramped" even though we did have neighbors. The "Gathering Place" has free Wi-Fi and serves treats from local bakeries every morning. The bath houses are all wooden and are CLEAN every day. There is soap and paper towels in each bath house. You do pay for hot water in the shower ($1.00 for 5 minutes), but, cold showers are FREE! LOL! Bring quarters with you as we never saw a place to make change. We were on site D12 with water/electric. This is a mostly tent campground but they can accommodate pop-ups or trailers 20ft or less. We were in a pop-up and there was PLENTY of room for us. Yes, sites on the water are more "pricey" but well worth it. We did not want a platform to camp on so chose a more remote site. We walked out on the floats several times to watch the tide come in/go out. They sell wood (hard or soft) at $5 a bundle and ice 5lbs for $2. Our check in went smoothly and our site was not difficult to get into or out of. If we are ever able to return to Acadia from Ohio we will DEFINITELY camp here again!
