Spacious site, clean bathrooms.

Beau camping, bien entretenu. Les employées étaient sympathiques et souriants. Les terrains boisées et assez grand.

This was our first stay at a KOA, but it won't be our last. The cabin was spotless, the pool crystal clear, the campgrounds clean and the shower bldg tidy. Enjoyed squash from the community garden! And I cannot say enough about the friendly staff who greeted us at check in and treated us like family. We will be back next year.

Hello, I stayed 4 nights at Koa Woodlands/Bar Harbor, in August. My first impression was good, but then, when I went to the restrooms and bathroom, I realized that it was not so nice. The cleanliness of this camp and particularly the restrooms and bathrooms is terrible and regrettable. I found out that it was washed only one's a day...and at 9:30am or even later... I won't recommand KOA

campground was nice bathrooms and showers clean but the staff at times was rude and tent sites too small and sites are too close together. The quiet hour was not really enforce3d as some campers were noisy and loud up to 3 am without campground officals enforcing quiet time.

We were in the group campsite for a week. Everything was always clean and neat. Pool was excellent. Employees and campers all friendly. We will be back.

On this trip my friend and I stayed at 3 other campsites and this was by far the nicest. The site was well-kept and the washrooms were clean and private. Having the island explorer shuttle was just an added bonus. A good experience all around!

Clean; friendly; lots of fun!

Great bathrooms. Smallest campsite there I think (627). Had noisy neighbors with kids up till 11-12 with two tents and screens each which made it feel even smaller. Thought management would do more to enforce tent rules, noise rules etc..Would stay elsewhere next time.

Have not received the receipt for our stay. However, have received numerous ads.

Clean tent sites& restrooms . Camp kitchen at site very useful. staff friendly & laundry facility large.

Conveniently located to get on/off the island. Grounds were largely clean. Sites in our loop were packed tight but there were more spacious offerings available if you book early enough. Only other minor mark against would be that it's located on the opposite side of the island from Bar Harbor/most of Acadia. Still a great campground, highly recommend!

Our site was nice and private and set back from the road. The private bathrooms were Great. The only suggestion would be to have a sign at the bathroom to form a line in a certain spot when waiting for the showersin the morning. a porta potty in the primitive tent area would be nice for night bathroom trips.

I rented an RV to surprise my 14 year old son Sam for his birthday, he always wanted to take a family trip in one. It was also our first time camping in a camp ground out side of boy scout one. We stayed at the KOA woodlands in bar harbor for 3 nights in Aug. We couldn't be happier we chose this place. Great space , clean environment and very helpful and friendly staff. Shuttle service was great!!

Les douches ont besoins de rénovation. Elles sont trop petites et les pommeaux de douche ne coulent pas uniformément.
Aug 12, 2015
Liked that the grounds were wooded. Management and office people seemed to be stressed out, tired and one person very grouchy. Bathrooms could be updated and cleaner. Shower head very poor. Rented 3 small wooden huts, one of daughters hut smelled of wet dog, she had to keep spraying it. My other daughters hut site was right on top of the bathroom and the light fans were noisy and the site tiny.

Staff was excellent but we weren't told about the rec center being open to us until almost our last day. Would have liked to use the microwave much earlier. It would be nice to have an activity daily. Maybe relay races, a movie or something simple in the evenings when the rec staff is off. Staff was great and sweet to our daughter.

1st time staying in KOA after years of family camping. Very impressed with cleanliness, sites are a bit small...snoring neighbors kept me up most nights...ear plugs should be sold in store. Overall...a job very well done by all. Entire staff very friendly and accommodating. We'll be back.
Aug 11, 2015
This was a great place and would definitely stay again. We were in one of the small cabins and I loved it. I was a little disappointed in the cleanliness of the bathrooms. I think that a once a day check of the bathrooms/wipe down would help during busy times.
Aug 11, 2015
The bathrooms are disgusting. Spiderwebs, cobweb and mold in the shower. Too gross to use, even went to the car to brush my teeth. The staff is less than friendly. Give KOA a really bad name. I have stayed at over 20 KOAs and this is only the time I have seen anything this filthy.
Aug 11, 2015
I liked my stay with KOA but realized that it is not my kind of camping. Being sandwiched so close between other campers doesn't feel like camping it feels like a city. I did find it to be a bit expensive for what it is and the ladies bathrooms while they say they were cleaned daily were not (there was fecal matter on one of the walls my entire stay).

The staff was friendly and the service in the store was awesome. I think our cabin smelled a little like dogs and the driveway at our cabin was really tiny. Other than those two things, it was all great!
Aug 10, 2015
Great campground!
Aug 10, 2015
The staff was very accommodating. They were more than willing to move us to a different site when the kids and I felt uncomfortable being near a cemetery. We needed a fire pit and they brought it right over. Clean bathrooms!
Aug 10, 2015
Cannot say enough good things about our experience here... From the beer sampling to the big foot walk, there were a lot of fun activities for all ages in the family. Thanks so much for a great stay!!!

One of the most important features of a campground is the bathrooms. Never have I seen such gross bathrooms. Dust and cobwebs that have clearly sat for weeks and months shows that the cleanings aren't thorough. Always accumulated dirt & hairs on floor. Girls bathroom without paper towels from at least 8pm to 11am the next day. Otherwise nice, but I wouldn't stay there again.

We loved the campground,and our site was great.We will be returning.

I needed an electrical outlet for my cooler with our dinner and my daughters medications in it. I was in a tent site. There were no available RV sites. The managers graciously let me plug into their RV!
Aug 09, 2015
First time at a KOA. Very nice - clean and quiet. Staff/crew very friendly. I plan to return next summer.
Aug 09, 2015
We checked in the price was $115.00 more than we were told. We were refunded $60.00 of that amount. The showers were terrible, burn then freeze. The bathrooms were not clean. There was waste smeared on the wall that was still there when we left. The red ants were horrible. The staff however, was very nice. It did look like they were trying to improve things.

We are very sorry for the misunderstanding. The deposit paid in advance is always equal to one night stay with tax and listed on your confirmation email as well as the balance due. Again, we are sorry if it was not clear.

I stay was wonderful! We found the camp to be clean, practical and most accommodating! We were put in a site with the new camping kiosk and enhanced fire rings! Terrific amenities for tent campers! Our camp host Kevin went above and beyond to make certain our stay was great! Thank you Kevin! Hope to see you in Key West!!

Very quite and cozy. Great place for family.

Best vacation ever. Camping cabins were clean, with treats waiting for my dog. Everyone was so sweet and helpful.
Aug 06, 2015
We had a great stay at KOA Woodlands. The camp site with the covered area was great and roomy. We didn't have luck tent camping with our puppy for the first time and the staff was extremely helpful with upgrading us to a cabin. Completely saved our vacation

Wonderful campground! Very clean, quiet, and the staff was helpful and friendly. One of the best KOA's I've ever been to. We will definitely recommend to anyone staying in the Bar Harbor area.
Aug 05, 2015
Great KOA! Very friendly and helpful staff. The wi-fi barely worked. But everything else was fantastic!
Aug 05, 2015
The people were very nice when we came from so far away. They understood we were coming in very late.. Very friendly. Very helpful when my fire didn't start one night , the next day they gave me a new starter to help with for that night. Which we had some yummy coconut s'mores, Walmart ran out of all the other marshmallows but that one. Yummy!

Great location if you're going to Acadia National Park. The tent sites are tucked into the woods nicely. Restrooms are clean.
