Camp In Bar Harbor Near Acadia National Park

There are a good handful of choices for camping in Bar Harbor. Check out the information below to decide which Bar Harbor campground is right for you.

Hadley's Point Campground

Located at 33 Hadley Point Road, this family-run campground is clean, quiet and comfortable. They offer over 150 sites, both wooded and grassy. The all important bathrooms here are very clean and well maintained. There is a small store, heated pool and small playground available for the kids. It's not a campground with tons of activities, but they do offer some occasional events like kids parades, races and a family carnival. They do take reservations and credit cards and like all Bar Harbor campgrounds, they are on the Island Explorer shuttle bus route so it is easy to get around to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. Web address is www.hadleyspoint.com.

Looking to camp right in Acadia National Park? You have two choices - Seawall (www.nps.gov/acad/planyourvisit/seawallcampground.htm) or Blackwoods (www.nps.gov/acad/planyourvisit/blackwoodscampground.htm) Campgrounds. Both are primitive with no hook-ups. They do have bathrooms, but showers are located outside of the campgrounds and are about $1.50 for 4 minutes. Reservations can be made but Seawall reserves half of their sites for drive-ins.

Bar Harbor Campground

Located at 409 State Highway 3, the Bar Harbor Campground (www.thebarharborcampground.com) is very nice and very clean with ocean views for many sites. They do not take reservations so you have to drive in to see if there are sites available. The nice thing, however, is that you pick your own site (which is really nice as everyone's preferences are different).

The bathrooms are very clean and the showers (25 cents for 5 minutes) provide plenty of hot water. There are sites for tents all the way up to large motor RVs. They offer a pool and Pirate's Cove Adventure Mini-Golf is right across the street. Kids will love not only that, but also the fact that the roads here are paved so they are great for bikes and scooters. Be aware that they do not take credit cards.

Mt. Desert Narrows

Located at 1219 State Highway 3, Mt. Desert Narrows campground (www.barharborcampingresorts.com) has tons of amenities and things to do. Pool, video arcade, playgrounds, hayrides, weekly entertainment...you and your kids will love it here. They do take reservations and accommodate everything from tents to RVs and have cabin tent rentals. There are many spacious sites for both tents and campers that are on the water or have water views.

Bar Harbor KOA

The Bar Harbor KOA has 2 campgrounds - one is Oceanside (koa.com/campgrounds/bar-harbor-oceanside) and one is Woodlands (koa.com/campgrounds/bar-harbor-woodlands). You'll have a great time at either campground with lots of activities available. The pool is located at the Woodlands but you can take the Island Explorer shuttle to get there. The facilities are clean and showers are hot and free.

With these choices for Bar Harbor campgrounds, you almost can't go wrong. So pack up your stuff, grab the bug spray ;) and head on over to Bar Harbor for some great outdoor adventures. Happy camping!
