Cabin Reviews

Friendly staff, good location, clean facilities.

We stayed in cabin 802, which is waterfront. The cabin is clean and charming, the linens were luxurious, the sett is is private enough that I felt secluded, even though we weren't. The employees are friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating. I love the natural look and feel of the park. There seems to be something for everyone at this KOA! Pet-friendly and family-friendly, too! Love, love, love!

I was very happy with the cleanliness of the kabin we stayed in and the overall way we were treated. I was very disappointed that the employees took my fire wood while i was away for the day. I don't know if they took it because they didn't know we were still there or because we didn't buy it from the Kamp store? None the less it was something I would not expect from KOA.

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

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!


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.

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.

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 :-)

It was a beautiful cabin. Close to all activities on the island. Only negative thing I can say is that the lack of hot water was a problem. It was a private cabin w only 6 gallons of hot water.& about a 5 minute shower. & has to wait to heat up for each person so it's not very convenient when you are trying to do things & have little time or if you are a woman w hair to wash, body parts to shave.

I wish I had scheduled many more days with you. Loved the cabin, the location, and the staff. And Clayton's!!

We loved the cabin, our stay was great, very friendly staff. My only complaint is that we didn't have a toilet plunger, so when our toilet wouldn't flush in the evening, the office had already closed and we couldn't get a plunger until the next day so we had to use the camp restrooms.

The cabin was very nice. The fire pit and grill were great too.

Rented deluxe cabin with bunk beds. More for children than adults. Wish we had known. Not made for adults to stay in bunk beds. Had all I could do to get in and out of the top bunk. If there wasn't a full side rail on top would have been easier. Need to advertise this is for children. Clean facilities/ wonderful location. Have camped here in the past/ tenting.

Awesome deluxe cabin. Friendly, helpful staff. Grounds kept very nice. The camping experience with all the luxuries of home. Close to Acadia and downtown Bar Harbor. Can't wait to go back

stayed in charming cabins --comfy, warm, everything we needed except a pot or pan for heating things on the BBQ ring. Staff very helpful and booked us a discounted trip on the 4 masted schooner Margaret Todd. We live in London and if possible would return in a flash

There was nothing to cook with in our cabin. No cook top, nothing related to cooking! I just visited friends in July at the Town Hill KOA and was so impressed with the cabins we booked this get-a-way. I was very disappointed. I purchased all kinds of food to make and couldn't make any of it. And the grill didn't work. Not that they even had plates in the cupboard to put food on! Not impressed

For the past 18 years we have visited Bar Harbor and have always stayed at Oceanside. Prior to this summer we pulled a trailer and stayed in one of your sites at the water's edge. This year, due to time constraints, we flew up, rented a car, and stayed in one of your lodges on the water. You did not disappoint! The lodge was beautiful, quite comfortable and met all our needs. We'll be back!!

We had a wonderful time. Our oceanfront site was beautiful and our friends' cabin was also spectacular. Mostly I can't say enough about the terrific office staff who were friendly, professional and extremely helpful and knowledgeable about everything to do with the local area

I loved and adored my cabin, quiet, clean, pretty, everything possible. I will certainly stay there again. TangoNet needs work, though. I was lucky to have my own private AT&T network which worked.

The cabins were adorable, but I was very disappointed that I did not have a kitchen that I thought I booked. There was no soap or shampoo and I had to go buy some! Not even a spoon for coffee. Hot water ran out during shower and was told it was a 6 gallon tank and had to "regenerate". May have been happier with a larger cabin, wish I'd verified when making reservation. Not great for the price.

Lovely location and fabulous cabins.

Pat was wonderful and fortunately she was the one I interacted with most. Others were surly at best. Biggest problem we had in otherwise nice cabins was a blocked toilet our final day. I called to report, we met employees who said they were aware but thought they'd wait until we checked out. Clearly no one uses a toilet between 7 and 11 AM! Especially 80+ year old people on a cold rainy morning

This was our first time camping as a family. We had the best time and made fantastic memories that will last a lifetime. We'll be back next year.

I love KOA Oceanside BUT it seems that profits are more important than the guest experience. They have maximized space usage by adding more cabins - over view was the backside of another cabin.

I would have saved about $50 more if I payed full rate at 136 for 6 nights with 10% discount and the free night.


You are correct and we have remedied the situation. You should see the refund shortly and hope that you come back and stay with us again.

beaucoup trop de traffic

Loved the easy access to the roads and as kayaker, the ocean. Campground was well kept, quiet and the staff extremely friendly.

The cabin was perfect for us! Being right on the water was magical. The staff was friendly and we had no problem finding our site even though the office closed. I would recommend having the staff be able to give more detailed directions to their guests when asking for recommendations about the area.
