We tent camped here and the condition of the bathhouse ruined our stay! It was filthy and inadequate. There were not enough showers and the showers and the toilets looked like it hadn't been cleaned in a week.

Dan, Brook, Karen and the rest of the crew were fantastic. Activities were great, but the tent sites are much too close together. I want to hear nature, not a neighbor's soft snore. Had to walk a quarter mile, through multiple other campers' sites to get to the restroom. Really?!? We booked two nights at $40/night and stayed 1. Won't...

I haven't been camping in 35 years but when my sister and her boyfriend purchased a new travel trailer and asked us to come along for a long weekend, we said yes! I remember camping with my family as a child and we always had a great time. This was no different. The campground is very well maintained and we...

We have been here many times and we always rent one of the delux cabins on the ocean side. The Bar Harbor/ Oceanside KOA is a wonderful place for family get togethers. This time we went with our grandchildren and there was lots to do for them. They loved the little train that goes around the campground...they played on it...

Excellent camp site, we had a site by the bay and any of the sites would have been great sites. The rest rooms were very clean, the general store was handy. They also had activities and a food wagon on site and of course they sold some form of lobsters. We went in October, not too hot and not too...

We arrived in a downpour with a reserved tent site for 1 night. We had our 2 year old with us (It was her Birthday) and we asked about any available cabins. The staff stated they didn't have any with our requirements (1 night only) but since it was my daughter's birthday they would make an exception. We got a...

First of all let me start by saying that this was a road trip so we were already at 6 sites before this one, however the people who work here were by far the friendliest we met on our entire trip. Always ready to help, make recommendations and they were busy all the time, this is a big site with...

We stayed here for eight nights in early September on site 114 to check out the sights of Bar Harbor / Acadia. Great location with Route 3 to take you to Bar Harbor / Acadia National Park, about a fifteen min drive to Bar Harbor. Check in was easy, utilities worked well with 50 Amp service, water was very good...

Although the sites close to the water had plenty of room, they did not have full hookups. We camped with a travel trailer and the few full hookup back-in sites were ridiculously closed together on the sides and back. It was only 5 feet from our fire ring to the camper next door. Fortunately we didn't spend much time at...

Beautiful KOA. Loved all the ladies at the front desk. Helped us with reservations to local events. Breakfast available 4 days per week as well as lobster suppers. Great location Just outside Acadia National Park. Close to everything. Would highly recommend staying here. A little pricey but where else can you stay right on the Ocean.
