Campground Reviews

Aug 19, 2013
We have stayed here several times and like the location of the campground. The site was small but other than that, we were very pleased.

Grounds were not as well kept as past years.Bathroom stalls and showers had squished bugs on them that were there for the entire 3 week stay. Staff were excellent and friendly.Pancake breakfast and other activities to the rec room made them too distant from the camp sites- less favorable.I miss having outside movies. View of water was great as usual. Missed notifying us of drinking water ban.

Exceeded my expectations! Great time!

Annual vacation at the Bar Harbor KOA. Great time, and friendly staff. Pancake breakfast team could use some help from other staff during busy times!

Wonderful! *****

Excellent staff. Great location although expensive for a KOA. Internet unreliable.
Aug 18, 2013
we loved the deluxe cabin and had a good stay. The staff were very busy but there seemed a good lot of activities for the kids

Absolutely love this place. Clean, friendly staff, lovely area. We come back every year!

Our stay in the cabin was great! Staff was very friendly. Fabulous location. One suggestion would be to add swings to playground for both big and little children.
Aug 18, 2013
we had a wonderful time and the staff were pleasant and very helpful with any questions we had. The only problem that we had was not having a kitchen sink to draw water for coffee. Thank you for a wonderful stay
Aug 18, 2013
all the sinks in our trailer leaked...

Beautiful campsite with lovely ocean views! Thank you!

Lots of mosquitoes. It would have been nice if the bathrooms were cleaned in the afternoon besides just the morning.

We loved this campground and this cabin! Perfect location by the water and friendly people. Only suggestion would be to have two staffers working at the main desk during busy times. We often had to wait an unreasonably long time to make a small transaction (buy ice or firewood) while the person behind the desk checked guests in or completed complicated phone reservations. Otherwise, A+++

Nice stay. Staff kind enough to help us store the RV for two days. Kathy and Bob were great!
Aug 17, 2013
Excellent campground. Wi-fi very poor. Folks in check in were helpful and eager to answer our questions!

I AM UN HAPPY CLIENT OF THIS KOA BECAUSE:THE HOT WATER IN THE SHOWER DIDNT WORK AT THE RUSH HOUR AT THE EVEINING. THE WIFI DIDNT WORK FOR 2 DAYS, AND THERE WERE TONS OF MOSKITUS DO WE COULD NOT SET OUTSIDE THE RV AT ALL! WHEN I TRY TO TALK TO THE MANAGER OF THE SITE HE TOLD ME THAT HE DONT HAVE TIME TO HEAR ME, HE WAS TOO BISY WITH OTHER CLIENTS.. I NOT GOING TO RECOMMAND THIS KOA TO ANY ONE ALSE!

Bar Harbor KOA is very lovely. Beautiful views, friendly staff, and nice activities. The free shuttle to Bar Harbor was very much appreciated.

We thought this campground was over priced. We were excited about being oceanside, however you could not access the water from the site. For $70 a night, we felt we could have had a better option. We could also not use the water at the campground due to contamination. We felt that people with reservations should have been made aware of this to be able to plan ahead.
Aug 16, 2013
Your facility blew my mind! It was wonderful and I would go back and stay again in a heartbeat:) Your staff were lovely and friendly and helpful.
Aug 16, 2013
If you plan on using the southern shower facility then do not go here. Showers ar small and dirty, not scrubbed, just hosed out. Sewage backed up, but the luau still managed to get done. Water not fit for drinking. How they won the Presidents award is beyond me. Good location but not a well loved campground. Needs someone to do better quality control.
Aug 16, 2013
Nice place but the showers were gross! Bathrooms were older but well kept.
Aug 15, 2013
Little disappointed. Well Water System had mal- functioned. Unable to use the water to consume, cook with or hygiene. Some guests were given bottled water, but not all. Our site was on a slope that couldn't be corrected and had more roots, rocks and pot holes then all of Acadia National Park. Property looks more like a RV Sales lot than a campground. Lots of RV's in a very small area.

Emplacement initial cordés les uns sur les autres; déplacé sur un pull-thru c'était un peu mieux.
Aug 15, 2013
Not as good at it used to be. Campers are squeezed in. Dumpsters smelled and were overflowing, trash on ground in front of them. Too many yipping dogs. Septic odor at ladies room, I left message about it. Grounds were not groomed like they were previous years.
Aug 15, 2013
We enjoyed our short stay very much. Wished we stayed longer. Even though you can't help some summer bugs in the shower stalls (it's camping, what do you expect) , it was very clean. Thank you!
Aug 15, 2013
Beautiful views, stayed on waterfront. Location was central to all areas we wanted to visit, staff was friendly and very helpful.
Aug 15, 2013
The hosts are wonderful

Improved Internet would make it perfect!

Perfect site, pet friendly, lots of activities. Better Internet so I can stay in touch with the business would make it perfect!
Aug 14, 2013
cabin was MUCH smaller than I expected. Camp ground was clean and service was impeccable. Would have been nice to more cabin reservation options. I would have gladly paid more for a larger cabin. Would definitely return.

love the lobster dinner available right in the KOA campground. Pick up your steamed lobster, corn and cole slaw and eat it outside of your camper....priceless experience. We will never forget it and are telling all our friends about it. Friendly staff. nice campground. we would vacation there again.
Aug 14, 2013
We enjoyed our stay in one of the cabins. Very nice cabin with all the amenities (bathroom, shower, even a tv). Very cozy for two adults and two kids. Nice campground location right near harbor. We had fun looking for small crabs on the beach area. Only negative was it took a while to check in, but possibly due to our later check-in or amount of guests checking in at same time. Very nice place.
Aug 14, 2013
Had a great stay will come again next year
Aug 13, 2013
wonderful view of the oceanside and in town Bar Harbor was lots of fun. very happy they have the free shuttles..
Aug 13, 2013
Section we were in was congested. Back to back and side to side - not too much room. Fire pit on the adjoining site was pretty close to our trailer. I had no room to park my truck and if I wanted a fire I couldn't because my truck was parked right next to the fire pit.
Aug 13, 2013
Though there were challenges with flooding and a well failing during our stay the staff was committed to assisting in every way. Communication could have been better but the staff was outstanding.
Aug 13, 2013
Sites to close together. No on site pool. During my stay, the entire campgroung lost water. For the money you charge per night, not worth the stay.
Aug 13, 2013
Very nice cabin. Very happy and hope to come and stay again next year! Very friendly and helpful staff too.
Aug 13, 2013
nothing bad or spectacular, further away from the attractions, but the shuttle made up for that. importantly bathrooms were clean.
Aug 13, 2013
The male bathrooms were gross. It was so noisy on the weekend in the tent area. Sunday was nice when everyone left but the tent sites were really close and exposed. I will not use the campground again.
Aug 13, 2013
What a great place to camp. Staff and facilities were outstanding. This is our 2nd year at the KOA Bar Harbor/Oceanside in ME and I'm sure we will there again next year.
Aug 13, 2013
Only problem was bed too close to wall. Hard to make bed and to get in and out. Trailer needed to be leveled out and repairman came almost immediately. Thank you. Lovely campground.
