Nice sites, clean, friendly staff, we will be back!

Very clean facilities, and extremely friendly employees

Our pitch was a little close to next door one (406). Otherwise you would have got 5 stars
May 26, 2015
The assigned site was beautiful. Restroom/shower room is clean. The site near the beach/seashore got the best view of sunset.

We stayed in a pet friendly cabin and we all loved it (dog included)! Extremely clean, extremely private. All amenities were helpful and accessible. Such a great experience

The tent sites were a bit small, but the bathrooms were always exceptionally clean, which is really important to me! The staff was very friendly and when we go back were definitely going to splurge for the ocean view sites!

We stayed at Oceanside and enjoyed the beautiful sunsets. Our site 106 was a bit small and almost on the road. The toilets and showers were always clean and the staff was friendly. We plan to come back.

We stayed on site 250 and had a great view of the bay only because the campground was basically empty. With most lots full during the peak season I am sure it would feel quite crowded with little view for most.Wifi was excellent.Playground is average.There are cheaper and nicer places to stay on the Island.All of the Seagull droppings are not worth the view to me.Price is way to high imo.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are so glad you enjoyed our recently upgraded Wi-Fi and the spectacular views, as we are the only campground on the island with truly oceanfront sites. Balancing our rates with keeping the property available to guests is always a challenge, but we think it is worth it. Safe travels.

Great, except the water in my cabin wasn't working. I checked in late and had to wait until the morning. Maybe make sure water is working - especially at the beginning of the season!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We apologize for the inconvenience as a contractor had inadvertently cut the water supply line. We are so glad you enjoyed the rest of your stay.

A wonderful spot to stay and to explore the island from .

We love Oceanside KOA!

Great people, gorgeous sites, super clean! Though, a little on the pricier side!

Amazing

Clean campground and facilities, very friendly/helpful staff. A great place to stay, I would go back in a heartbeat.

Decided to change sites, due to over-crowding of oceanfront sites with too-big rigs. Some areas need landscaping, more trees. After years of visiting, I see very little renovation, upgrades.

Love the location on the shore. Need to be careful to get a guaranteed reservation next time - my carefully selected reserved site was given away, and I struggled to find an equivalent alternative.
Oct 22, 2014
Great place. It would have been nice to hook up to the free wifi but office staff was in a hurry to leave and I could not get assistance. Also, we did not know we would have to have change for laundry machines and had to unhook and go and get change-other than that, it was great!
Oct 21, 2014
Arrived at night. No lights to show the way or to assist in hookup. No signs on roads to show where sites were located. Good thing we brought extra sewer and water lines because hookups were totally opposite of correct position for most camper hookups. Also site was completely surrounded by water after a small rain. Ruined new pair of boots in water! The only positive is that we had electricity.
Oct 20, 2014
The staff is great, can't beat the views. It is on the pricey side. For sites without sewer hookup, it would be nice to include a pump out with a weeks stay.

Thank you once again!
Oct 18, 2014
Great location, some of the staff less than accommodating.
Oct 17, 2014
aMAINEing location! The harbor is facinating...the water almost fully empties as the tides go out and then the harbor refills as the tide comes in. Plenty of awesome water fowl, beautiful rocks and a great sunset! Try the lobster dinner on site--you'll be happy to be hungry. The staff was helpful, courteous & cheerful. Right on the shuttle route to both Bar Harbor & Acadia. We'll be back!
Oct 16, 2014
Everything was great but it was hard getting onto wifi. We would stay here again.
Oct 16, 2014
Wonderful vacation! Beautiful site! Can't wait to come back!
Oct 16, 2014
I have stayed here several times and I return again and again. The staff are so helpful and kind and go above and beyond to assist me in having a great camping experience. Thanks to all! Especially Don, Pat, Caroline, Larry and Barbie!! Could not ask for more dedicated people working for KOA oceanside. Thanks to all the other staff too whose names I have not yet learned.

There was a lack of communication that the site I booked the cabin at online was actually closed for the season and we were staying at another site. We were lucky we arrived in time to actually speak to someone. The cabins seemed brand new and were very clean. Only get maximum of 5 minutes of hot water for a shower which was disappointing. The toilet didn't have enough flushing power.

The camp ground was well maintained. Staff very helpful and friendly. Bathrooms very clean.
Oct 15, 2014
The people were very friendly, the location beautiful. Old hookups (low water pressure) and wifi very slow
Oct 15, 2014
Vraiment trop dispendieux pour ce qui est offert. J'ai eu comme impression que la préposée ignorait comment évaluer le type de campement que nous avions. C'est la première fois que je suis déçue d'un KOA.
Oct 14, 2014
Thank you very much for a wonderful stay. We had the best site there, I believe, everything was great!
Oct 14, 2014
The staff was very helpful. A beautiful place to stay. Good showers.clean
Oct 14, 2014
Good internet, baths and showers, employees great. No CBS on the cable. I reported it but no help came.

We apologize for the inconvenience; the cable company came after you left to resolve it.

We have stayed up at bar harbor koa many times. The last two times we stayed in the cozy cabins. They are very clean and a great value. The staff is alway friendly and helpful. The campground is beautiful. We'll visit again soon :-)

By far the best KOA anywhere, the views along make this place magic. We come every year, now sharing with it with our kids and will hope to keep the tradition for many more.
