Excellent service du personnel, salles de bain très propres, bonne eau chaude pour les douches qui sont non payantes. Malgré la proximité des tentes, les gens sont plutôt calmes. Bref, mis à part l'intimité car parfois les terrains de tentes sont très près les uns des autres, c'était numéro 1 !!!

We stayed in tent only sites that were waterfront. These sites seemed like an after-thought. The vehicles had to be parked almost on top of the site to allow room for the other cars at other sites to park and exit. Water lines that were run to the sites were exposed and made for trip hazards. Not worth the high price we paid.

We enjoyed our stay! The employees were very friendly and welcoming. The site we had was clean as were the restrooms. We were surprised of the lack of dedicated entrance to the campground, it was right off the main road onto the island.

We had the most amazing stay. The site was incredible, absolute gorgeous view of the ocean. The staff was wonderful, it was a first rate experience. We had gone to the KOA Woodlands to use the pool, so convenient to use the shuttle bus between the two locations. Thank you all for an excellent stay!

Great KOA. Spectacular tent sites and the staff are amazing. My only disappointments (and they are small) were that hot water ran out quick in the showers and they used to do a daily breakfast, which I'd like to see them bring back.

Clean,convenient. The only downside is that the camp sites are to close to each other.

Great activities and super friendly staff, beautiful views and clean campground.

Our stay was great. The staff were all fantastic and the services were as I expected from a KOA. However, we had reserved an Oceanside tent site, and there is only one true oceanfront tent site. The others are close but blocked by many trees that could be removed to allow for both wind blockage and allow a full view, as well as less bugs. Although we had a great time, 402 is not an oceanfront site

We had a wonderful time camping in our tent. The water views were incredible, the staff was very friendly and helpful, and the facilities were very clean. We have been coming here for three years and plan to continue this tradition in the years to come!

overcrowded. dirty. unmarked camp site without a parking spot. overpriced even for a good facility, which make no mistake, it was not.

Even though the first night & 1/2 our first day was raining our stay (3 nights) was fabulous. We were in a quiet tenting area with no electrical and no water hookups and it was perfect. We cannot wait to come back next year and have a longer stay! Thank you for the fabulous hospitality!

We tent camp and the lot we had was not very level. Lots were not marked well. Not my favorite kamp

Camp sites were shady but ours was a little small. My daughter loved their train and we all enjoyed the beach. The water in the shower never got very warm. Staff was friendly.

Great people, clean campgrounds(extremely,over three days saw cleaning staff at least 2x/day), convenient location to everything bar harbor has to offer. Highly recommended!

Nice site with good space. Campground had plenty of things to do and helpful staff.

beautiful grounds, clean restrooms, amazing views. We came in in the middle of the night while road tripping and it was easy to register and check out. Thank you!

Good location, but low value for the cost. We stayed in the tent section, which was very undeveloped, basically a picnic table and a fire ring. I expect a little more refinement for $37 a night, and from a KOA. Most state parks have much more developed sites. The shower room and laundry rooms were very nice however, and the staff was very friendly. Too pricey for the amenities

Over the last 6 years renting the same site for the same weekend, I see some things getting worse for the money. used to be you could get a decent breakfast, now it is only on sundays, and 6 dollars for a pancake. rediculous. the wifi is sooo slow, i had to actually wait until i was home to post here, because it was too slow for a computer or phone to run properly. sites were nice and clean tho

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.
