Tent Reviews

Oct 21, 2013
I was only there for one night,but the people running the campground were extremely friendly and helpful, the bathrooms were clean, and the campsites I saw were cleaned up and spaced apart nicely. Access to the ocean is great and the sunset was really nice. The tent sites are situated far enough away from the RV sites that you feel separate from the RV city that is probably there in the summer.

The site was great, really exceeded expectations, and expectations were high! Staff was nice and helpful in familiarizing us with the area. We stayed at the tent site right on the water, and it was amazing. Would visit again for sure. Thanks!!

This place was wonderful! We were comp'ed a night that we reserved but weren't able to attend. They didn't have to do that and it was greatly appreciated. The site we had was nice. The place was empty so no worries about bad neighbors. Only negative to add was they didn't clean our fire pit each night, otherwise great place with friendly staff.

Beautiful campground, absolutely gorgeous. Bathrooms could have been a little cleaner. Staff extremely helpful.

Great place to stay. Beautiful views and very dog friendly. Only con was the tent sites were very close together. Would have had no privacy if other tenters were there. We will definitely be back.

Location great, showers, not so much.

The campground in Bar Harbor, ME, was in a great location, and the people were very nice, but the campsites were way too close together, so my neighbors' tent wall was right next to mine. awkward. Then one couple had an argument, and another was snoring. The site I had would've been great if I were there with my family, but for that night, I would've liked the space you'd find at a state park.

Tent camping we were assigned is in the middle of a swamp, worst mosquito swarms I have encountered camping. RV camping looked awesome and bug free however. Bathrooms and showers were very clean and worked well.

We had good weather, a comfortable stay and helpful staff.

This is ridiculously expensive for the sites offered ($70 per night - no electricity even). Also, when i made reservations i was told that my site was "on the water" - well, it wasn't - it was in-land and right by the road. Then i asked to switch - i had to pay extra for the "oceanside" site, which really wasn't oceanside - but it was on the side of the ocean - they should be more clear when desc

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Bar Harbor KOA. Excellent! Thanks! :>

Wonderful experience. Already told our friends and family and everyone wants to stay in an airstream. Great value added activities- smores, sock hop and pancake breakfast where you could donate to Kare Lamps which we were happy to do! Generous active duty military discount. Top notch customer service. Beautiful waterfront location and facilities. Thank you for the gratis cups of coffee.

We enjoyed our stay very much. Great location!The tent sites are pretty close together so be prepared to know your neighbors pretty well.

Everything was satisfactory except for the price -$42 for a campsite? The septic system for the bathroom next to the site was badly in need of an emptying. The smell was pretty bad.

Nice location, handy showers, sites are too close together.

The price for a tent reservation here was outrageous compared to the cost of others in the area. If I had it to do over, I would have picked another location. Paying over $80 a night for a tent spot when there are motels on the island charging that much and then we'd have electricity! Also the mosquitos were bad. We were talked into a spot Oceanside to avoid them and I left covered in bites.

While our stay was only for one night, the staff treated us as if we were staying for a long time. They informed us of every event that would be happening in the 24 hours we would be there. I especially liked the escort to our campsite. We purchased wood for a campfire and the company that packages the wood even included a fire starter in the bundle - what a great addition. The camp was very clean

Very friendly and helpful staff. Tent campsites a little on the small side. Pool very good.

The facilities are good and clean, but mosquitoes are a real pain and prevent you from enjoying any activity outside your acr or your tent.

We stayed 3 nights. It is our first time in a campground in USA, and I think everything was ok, but our spot was a little bit far from Bathrooms/showers and sink. Good experience.

Great campsite, everyone was very friendly. Surrounded by beautiful scenery. The only slight negative was the abundance of mosquitos!
Aug 19, 2013
The tent site is located right aside a swamp so be aware of tons of mosquito's. Aside the very high price the facility is clean and OK.

The water was unpotable, but but we were not told this at the tent area. Tent area absurdly small, and the site flooded completely (a lake, had to wear rubber boots). Tent area smells like the toilets flush straight into the watershed. Firewood was not properly dry, so fire never warm. Worst place I have ever stayed.

Exceeded my expectations! Great time!

Lots of mosquitoes. It would have been nice if the bathrooms were cleaned in the afternoon besides just the morning.
Aug 16, 2013
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.

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.

Tranquille même si tout près de Bar Harbor et de la principale route d'accès. Bon accueil.

The campground was fine for trailers and had a few nice sites for tents, but it was not exactly on the water like the website claimed. Plus the water went out and we had no water for the entire stay. We did not get a refund or anything but a few bottles of water.
Aug 12, 2013
The site we were given was right next to an area that had been inundated by rain. We were plagued by swarms of mosquitoes and only stayed one night. We ended up leaving and going to a hotel. After this experience it is doubtful I would ever go camping again.

Staff is very friendly. Loved the pancake breakfast on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Only bad thing - WIFI. Very, very poor. Tengo is crap.

Lots are way too small for tents. It smelled of septic sewage, particularly strong on our last night. Very costly for tent camping. The only thing in your favor is your staff who work hard to make the facilities clean and Steve was very helpful in trying to find a tent site for us when we declined the first site.

Office closes at 8pm so quarters and soap were not available for campers who arrive late. The price was too high for a tent site without electricity.
Aug 06, 2013
Staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. Bathrooms were very clean and showers were hot.

Good camp ground, great location and good service. The camp ground is clean - You will love the $3 breakfast and on site lobster dinner. Two short comings: firewood should be reasonably sold at $4 (locals sell for $3 per bundle. Be prepared to keep off the mosquitoes - I don't know if other camp site on the island would be the same? Anyway - I highly recommend it!
