Bar Harbor, Arcadia National Park

Hey all,
We're planning on taking a vacation up to Maine this July and I'm wondering if there are any recommendations for campgrounds in Bar Harbor.

Thanks,

We stayed there. It is an awesome campground and will go again. We also took the truck to the CAT (if running) to Nova Scotia for an overnight adventure. Left the camper at the campground; parked the truck at the terminal; and walked on to the CAT Ferry for the round trip. Stayed at a hotel overnight there and did a lot of sight seeing.

I would suggest staying at Acadia National Park. Acadia is the east's second busiest NP and the campground there will likely require a reservation. I have not been there in many years, but I look forward to a return visit hopefully in the next year or so.

I went online and found the campground...we stayed at Seawall Campground in the park. I really liked at as kid and my folks took us there 3 times growing up. A return visit is in order for sure.

We have reservations at the KOA, but I know they are close to being totally booked for late July already, so plan ahead.

Highly recommend Bar Harbour Campground. No reservations first come first occupied, lots of variety in sites(treed, open, pull thru) cash only accepted
Closest to Bar Harbour

We just stayed at Hadley's Point campground. It is not on the water like the KOA is but the rates were a lot more reasonable. Yhey have a variety of sites from wooded to open field . The hosts are very friendly and it is on the Acadia shuttle route.

We camp in Bass Harbor Campground. It's out of the way and very reasonable and quiet.The people there are Super!! It is a ways from Bar Harbor but the scenery is beautiful. It is near Bass Harbor Lighthouse.

we stayed at Bass Harbor a few years ago. It is pretty rustic but it is pretty far out from Bar Harbor so it is much quieter. It is literally up the road from the lighthouse so if it is foggy you get the fog horn. There is a bouey (sp) of the rocks below the lighthouse with a bell on it that rings all night long. But these sounds actually enhanced the environment for me. Some people were upset by the sounds and that of the fishing boats leaving early in the am. but you get used to it and I actually liked them. The people there quite nice and the rates weren't bad.
