We had a seaside tent spot, far from bathroom access (that was close to all the RVs which didn't make sense). But the bathrooms were gross on a few occasions, sometimes leading to lines because only 2 of 5 were usable. Showers had cobwebs/spiders, water flipped from freezing cold to scorching hot, making showers difficult and not possible for small children. Wifi never worked at our tent site.

Very friendly service as always with KOA and a very happy and professional staff. The property is very clean and well kept. However it is not the greatest place for tent camping. Our site #408 was surrounded by RVs and large campers and we felt out place. Also our "oceanview" for which you charge extra was completely blocked and not worth the money.

The bathrooms were moderately clean. If you are just going to be wondering around Bar Harbor, going to Acadia, and dont have the option for an ocean side site, the woodlands KOA site would be a better location. My MAJOR complaint is that the bugs were AWFUL! We were continuously applying bug spray all three days we were there and still came home with 30+ bug bites a piece. They need to spray!

Friendly staff, great environment. A little noisy at the entrance for tent site, but not that big of a deal and it was a great big space for us. Again, wonderful staff.

Camp Staff was friendly and helpful. The Camping site was plenty big enough and quite. The location was great for accessing Acadia. Thank you

Tent sites are small and crowded on top of one another. Bathrooms were clean, kids enjoyed the rocky beach. Overall campground was ok, don't think I would come back.

The staff was great and the location was beautiful. The bathrooms/showers were nice and clean. (cleanest camp showers!) 2 negatives: We had tent site 428. All the tent campers near us would cut through our site to get to the bathroom. Also, on our third night, there was a septic tank sort of smell in our site; we believe it is because of the site being located so close to the bathrooms.

Great campground! Clean bathrooms. Nice place for kids to play. Friendly help. And the ocean view doesn't hurt either.

Great place to kick back along the water and relax with the whole family. Pancake breakfast was awesome!!

I would like to see the beach area reserved for non-motor boats (oil in the water and on rocks) and swimmers. With the chairs there now and so many dogs, it's hard to launch a kayak or paddleboard and the dogs are just too much, leashed or unleashed. People let them go to the bathroom where people are walking and kids are playing and get defensive when you tell them there's a dog walk. It may be t

Staff was friendly and very helpful. Clean facilities and camp sites.

Great staff and facilities - thanks for having us!

I tented and had a great time. The people at the front desk were more than accommodating and even answered the door after hours (while they were cleaning) to make sure we found our campsite. I was hoping they had some tenting near the water but that wasn't available to tenters.

Great location, employees warm-full. But not enough showers (2 x 3) and closing at 10PM. We were in a section where a group of 50 teenagers were camping, that would have been nice if they would have been placed in a dedicated section: we had noise from 4AM to 11PM...

Amazing stay in Bar Harbor / Oceanside ME. Our family loved every minute. Great atmosphere for kids and adults. Everything was clean and the service was impeccable .

Bathrooms were generally clean, however, men's room seemed to be out of order due to clogged toilets. Would recommend having a staff member check them more frequently.

Tent Sites are too small. I honestly could hear my neighbor snore as if I was in his tent. Due to resources being limited showers opened at 8am. Staff was wonderful and made even the issues above tolerable.
Jul 08, 2016
Had a good time, the campground is very clean & a good location. My only 2 negatives are that the sites are a little too close to each other & kind of expensive.
Jul 08, 2016
The staff was very nice and helpful. The camping sites were to close together. The camp grounds and facilities were well maintained.
Jul 08, 2016
The tent sites were too close together and the neighbors were very loud late at night and into the morning. They were too far from the bathrooms, and the showers had limited hours.

We stayed two nights over 4th of July weekend and had the best time. The staff was very friendly and the camp ground was quiet. The sunset on the water was so beautiful. I can't wait to come back!

The staff were very friendly and helpful

Lots of amenities. Closer neighbors though and some were quite loud 2 nights in a row until 2am. Not sure anything was done about it. Nice kids activities and super friendly staff! :) We did enjoy ourselves, thank you.

Great campgrounds a lot of improvement it's very nice to see

Kids liked the playground but the tent area was separate from the bathrooms by a wood path with no lights. Not very comfortable for a family tent experience.
Jun 27, 2016
Great campground. Great service. I wish the website said how big the tent platforms were, my tent was alittle bigger.
Jun 26, 2016
I chose the wooded tent site. It was right by a loud road and far from the bathroom. The sites were really close together and there was constant loud conversation. I didn't spend much time there but I have nothing positive to recommend it on. I'll stay elsewhere next time.

Very clean campground, friendly staff. The tent site was all gravel, making it difficult to put tent stakes in the ground and the gravel was uncomfortable for sleeping on, even with air mattresses. Would've appreciated knowing before I reserved my campsite that the campground was under a "boil water order" that advised us not to use the water unless we boiled it for at least a minute.

Best and cleanest KOA site! Tent site 405, no hook ups but worth every minute! $1,000,000 panoramic views with seals swimming by to boot.

All the staff were incredibly friendly and kept the area well maintained . Dan was particularly great at helping us get settled and even loaning us some camping gear ! Highly impressed and will recommended to others !
Jun 05, 2016
Staff very helpful and nice. Facilities clean and functional at all times. Great stay all around very helpful with all needs

A fantastic spot! If you are able to get one of the sites on the waterfront, it is a perfect sight to wake up to in the morning. All the necessary amenities are available to make the stay pleasant. And with so much to do around, it is definitely a highly recommended destination, as far as I'm concerned.

Dan, Brook, Karen and rest of crew were fantastic. Activities great, but the tent sites are much too close together; want to hear nature, not a neighbor's soft snore. Had to walk a quarter mile, through multiple other campers' sites to get to the restroom. Really?!? We booked two nights and stayed 1. Won't return.


We are sorry you were inconvenienced during the remodel of the closer bath house. We have refunded the unused night and hope that perhaps the Woodlands KOA would be more to your liking another time.

It wasn't amazing but it was good enough

Staff was helpful. Great customer service. The camp site was clean. Beautifully located. Loved staying here and will come back again!

Our first night was fine, very few other campers in our area. However the bathrooms on our side of the camp were not open and we were not told and it forced us to have to use the bathroom on the opposite side of the campground. Our second night we returned to have our site taken by another group and other campers arrived after midnight. We got no sleep and decided to leave a day early.
May 23, 2016
My stay was decent but i was let down when i didnt get to stay in the area i requested an was told I would get. Also the bathroom construction was a huge inconvenience and i wish they had put in some porta potties to make up for the closed bathrooms

We can't say enough great things about our stay. There was a small problem with our booking and the manager more than took care of the issue and we can't wait to come back next year.

very friendly hosts and great atmosphere.
Oct 12, 2015
Campsite was beautiful, right on the Bay. I will be back again, just in warmer weather!
Oct 12, 2015
Very loud at all hours of the night and campsites right next to each other. No privacy.


We are sorry you were disturbed by noise. We are surprised as noise is not typically an issue at this campground ever... but especially this time of year. Please accept our apologies.

We absolutely loved our time here! It was such a great location for exploring all of MDI, and we loved the yummy lobster rolls sold in the evenings by a sweet local. The staff was so kind and helpful- we were on our honeymoon, and they really went out of their way to make our stay even more memorable. Hoping to return for anniversaries in the future!

This was great for the off season as we were the only campers at the tent site. If we had been here during the high season, it would have been far too crowded to be enjoyable. I had to walk through campsites to get to the car, bathroom, etc. and the sites are piled on top of one another. Great and friendly staff and good location, but not would not be enjoyable for a relaxing summer camping trip.

Stayed at the Oceanview site and it did not disappoint. Location is great. We had a great experience with the clean site. Would definitely consider coming back again.
Sep 26, 2015
Water pressure issues not fun but we love it here - it is clear that they are trying to resolve. We'll be back
