Booked a 7 night stay for September 2015 in December 2014. We asked and was promised a open grassy full hook up site. What we got was a sandy, dirt site with a huge water puddle in the front for the entire week. Sites are very close together and felt the place is over rated.

We are very sorry, unfortunately we had a water line break that weekend.

Ridiculously cramped campsites.

Love this campground! I have stayed in KOA's across the country and this is one of the nicest. The oceanside sites are amazing!

It's not that this isn't a very nice, clean place; it is. But it's more like a big CITY than a campground. It was so, so crowded that I was uncomfortable. All of Bar Harbor was a...ZOO. I'm DONE with the place!

Great location, great staff, well maintained.

Really nice clean place. A little far from the action at Bar Harbor. Nice view on the ocean and if you can get a site with a view - very nice!

This campground is old and needs some touchup. The restrooms are clean but need painting. Laundry rooms need cleaning and painting. Cable was inoperative at my site. trees need trimming as they rub the side of motorhome when moving in and out of campground. View is beautifull and staff was friendly.

Had a wonderful visit, the bathrooms were very clean and the overall experience with the staff and the activities was great.

Too little shade. Our site was poorly cleared with protruding roots which impaled wife's leg one night. Staff very friendly and helpful.

Our granddaughter had a wonderful stay on her annual camping trip with us. We had a site on the water which was great! Collecting crabs, kayaking, swimming and rock climbing. She met new friends at the small playground which she liked riding to on her bike. We liked the smaller size of the campground and felt safe letting her ride her bike alone for the first time.

we had a great time. the staff was very helpful with answering questions. Thanks again

Much more friendly staff than the last time we stayed there. Camp ground was clean and quiet for the week stay. Only negative was the 3PM check in time vise 1PM.

Pros: Near Acadia Park and Bar Harbor. Friendly staff and good camp layout for pull through. Great sunrise/sunset only if your site is by the ocean/coast otherwise view blocked by other RV`s. Cons: Horrible/confusing road entrance/exit, have to be careful not to drive into oncoming traffic. Lots of mosquitoes, even with Off spray I was eaten alive at least 10 welts on the back of my head/neck.

The campsites are close together. But the view was worth it. Everything was very clean. The employees were so nice and super accomodating. It is a easy 15 minute scenic ride to Bar Harbor. The wait for the showers wasnt too bad and the water was always hot.
Sep 16, 2015
cfe was a nice touch - not your normal snack bar fair. great quiche, and bread pudding
Sep 16, 2015
labor day was crowded but the staff was amazingly chipper. Need more full hook up sites.
Sep 16, 2015
super staff, had a accident and they were helpful and kind, we'll be back
Sep 16, 2015
Location on the water is absolutely gorgeous! Staff goes out of their to help you with anything. Campground is spotless. Friendliest RVers of anywhere we have been. Skipping everywhere else and heading straight back here on next trip!

Staying there in September of 2015 was very nice. And being in a RV site on the water was great. Maybe I'm being to picky, but for the price of the site and the few sites that are on the water with no sewer hook up, maybe there should be some type of stipulation in place where if you stay 4 or more nights, call us by 11:00 am and pumping is free, just a thought. The people working there were great
Sep 15, 2015
Everything was great.... just a little pricey. At least a AAA discount would be nice.
Sep 14, 2015
Beautiful, well kept park,. Unfortunately our site and many others in park not at all level.
Sep 14, 2015
We had a great campsite- ! Grounds were ver clean- staff very cordial! Only 2 issues.....low water pressure( we did report it) and had our tanks pumped out....didn't get fully pumped out - only a quarter pumped out Other then that ---- we had a great time and will be back! Thank you! The Walsh's

Campground a lot different from when it was Barcadia campground n Sites are extremely close to each other. Very limited trees for shade. Not enough washers & dryers for size of campground, 1 washer & dryer out of service two weeks we were there.

We hope you will have found memories of BH KOA too. No sites have been added since the park was called Barcadia, I think the rigs have just gotten bigger. We appreciate your input; with it we strive to improve each year. Come back again next year and what we've done!

We had the most incredible site over-looking the water. When I woke in the morning, I watched a seal swim by from my bed! Plenty of God's creation to enjoy, right on site. The sun sets over the water nightly. Location is everything! The staff was friendly and helpful. Only a short drive to the ACADIA NP. Would definitely make a return trip.

We had an oceanfront site on a little ridge above the water but close enough to enjoy hearing the water. We enjoyed sitting outside by our picnic table and watching the birds with binoculars. There were some with long necks (egrets?). There is a free shuttle bus sponsored by L. L. Bean that makes tours of the island, including down to Bar Harbor Village.
Sep 13, 2015
had a wonderful stay, really enjoyed the activities and the staff
Sep 13, 2015
Showers were a bit stinky. Matts on the floor smellled bad. Looks like they addressed that on our last day by replacing matts. Staff was amazing. We stayed right after Labor Day so the cafe closed. Would be nice if they stayed open through Sept. Lobster shack great but expensive. I'd have them open at noon, not 5pm. Also, outdoor movies every night would be awesome!

Very nice folks, very nice campground. Wish it was closer to Bar Harbor.
Sep 12, 2015
A wonderful view of bay. Very overpriced for lack of service. No wifi, or cable TV, or sewer connection.
Sep 12, 2015
Somewhat disappointed with our site. Very small and not level. Requested site on water & was told none available. Site right in front of us vacant while we were there. Feel they gave us the smaller site so they could give the other one to a bigger rig. Bathrooms and showers were clean.
Sep 12, 2015
Paid for water view, but couldn't see the water through all the trailers in front of us.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I am sorry about the misunderstanding. You requested a full hookup site. Since sewer is not allowed on the national seashore we were unable to offer you an ocean view or oceans edge site.
Sep 11, 2015
Good location. Great scenery. Very expensive - especially with no cable, no sewer and poor wifi.
Sep 11, 2015
Excellent site, staff friendly and helpful. Good service. Beautiful sunsets from our motorhome. Will definitely return.
Sep 11, 2015
Staff and everything was great and having the new cable hookup was outstanding.

People friendly and dog friendly.
