We have been to this KOA before and would happily return again. The location is excellent with easy access to Acadia, Bar Habor and the rest of MDI. The pool was clean and warm and great for our young kids. The one issue was that we stayed in a cabin and the cabin did not smell great - kind of like a medicine or ointment smell. Wasn't too bad, and mentioned it to management at end of stay.

Overall the stay was good. The bus comes every 1/2 hour and there is coffee every morning for purchase. However our site was very swampy and therefore captured lots of mosquitos. The cabin we stayed in was a "pet friendly" cabin K11, and it was no different than the other sites, except for the standing water. I could have moved had I made a fuss but we just made campfires and stuck it out.

We had a great time on our second visit to this KOA. We love this campground. The sites are well situated, the bathrooms are usually clean and the pool is great. The staff is kind & helpful too.

Had a great stay in our kamping kabin at Bar Harbor Woodlands. As the name indicates, sites are very wooded. Everyone was friendly and accomodating and as we've come to expect from a KOA. The bathhouse near the cabins was dated but clean and well maintained. We would have liked to see a fenced off-leash area for our dogs, and also pet friendly cabins that include a mini fridge.

What a wonderful place to bring a family. Quiet and peaceful

Beautiful campground! The best KOA we've ever stayed at. Outstanding hospitality. Very accomodating. We were in tents and rain had started. Expecting over 1 inch of rain that night. We went to upgrade to a cabin for the night and the office staff had already decided to move us to a dry cabin, complimentary, before we even inquired. Ice cream social a nice activity.

Accommodations were spartan but that was sort of expected. The cabin we stayed in was poorly lit, a better fixture or at least higher wattage lamps would help. It rained all weekend and with the cold and damp it would have been nice to have some heat in the cabin. The worst part though was that we chose this campsite for the free wifi because we were anticipating the rain and not being able of th.

We always enjoy staying at the Woodlands Bar Harbor. It's quieter and roomier. With all the extras right down the road.

It was quiet, not crowded because its the last week they are open (just the way I like it). Everything was perfect. Could use larger shower room so when I bend over my forehead and bottom aren't touching the walls. Yes I'm tall but not that tall 5'8". But it was clean I'm was able to be clean, so I was very happy with my stay. And the staff is very friendly.

It was OK. I don't think there's a need for cable at a camp ground but whatever :). When I reserved online I got the "upgraded" cabin which was $21 more than a regular cabin. This was not apparent on the site  I thought they were all $65. Both men's toilets were inoperable during my visit so I wasn't able to well... be comfortable.

I know you are continuing to make improvements. I would suggest to prioritize first to resolve the water pressure & temp issues with the new shower rooms up the hill as that is a real issue when the campground is full. It was not too bad this trip but was more of an issue when my wife and I were there 5 weeks earlier. It would be nice if the office were open a little later.

We stayed in a kamping kabin which was a great value. Hosts were very friendly and helpful giving us a heater to help dry us out from our motorcycle ride through rain. The setting of the park was also very beautiful, definitely recommend this spot.

Very good breakfast.

What a wonderful location! We stayed in a cabin for 3 nights and it was exceptional. The managers of the site helped us tremendously and we were able to rent bed linens and borrow a heater for an unexpectedly cold night. The restrooms and showers were very clean, and the campsite was quiet, and the heated pool was a great touch. I would definitely stay here again.

The BEST! Amazing!

Kabin was super clean and inviting after being in the car all day. Staff was helpful and very friendly. Great value for such a nice location. Considering more Kabin stays in the future.

HOw nice and easy they made it for us when we arrived late. The Kabin was sooo clean that we will come back again. The friendly helpful host was great. Thanks

The bathrooms need to be better up kept. Also, the quiet hours need to be enforced. Being kept awake by drunk karaoke and car alarms until 2:30 am is a bit much with children. Maybe having more staff would help. On a better note, our cabin was awesome, the pool was great, and the staff we did see were very friendly and helpful! The pancake breakfast was awesome as well, but way under advertised

Very friendly staff. Pool and the newer bathrooms were very clean. We stayed in a campers cabin that was dog friendly. Really could've used a ceiling fan or AC like so many of the others we've stayed in.

Stayed in a cabin, it was nice and cozy.

Friendly staff, they even refunded me 1 night charges when we had to leave a day early due to my daughters college schedule. 1 group of loud obnoxious campers playing loud music late into the night, but overall a great experience!

Stayed in cabin for 5 nights. Place was clean and well maintained. Staff was very friendly. Bed was uncomfortable -- would recommend thicker mattress pads as the one we slept on was very uneven and sloped towards the middle.

Absolutely loved it. Will stay there again on our next trip to Maine

The stay was as excellent as always. My only issue was that there were a ton of fire ants that began to pester us. Many of us left with several bites. We have seen them in the past but this time around they were much worse. Other than that we had an excellent time and will be back for our bi-annual camping trip next summer! Thank you for your hospitality!

Better than we expected! Cozy, clean and rustic, but still had everything we needed. Will definitely come back!

This was my 4th time at the KOA BarHarbor/Woodlands. The office staff were especially helpful.

This is our vacation destination for 3 summers. It was quiet at night & the new bath house is AMAZING! As much we love it, we had minor problems. Nonsmoking areas outside of the cabins would be great. The cabins are close together & our neighbors frequent smoking made us avoid our outside area w/our young son. Store hours were erratic & bathroom garbage needed to be emptied more often.

Good location and overall the campground was very nice. We stayed in a camping cabin, which was nice except for the smell. It had a very weird smell, kind of like vomit and baby powder mixed.

Bob and Kathy were awesome..They made the stay at woodlands make us feel like we were right at home..They deserve a pay raise.please increase their pay.

We think some of the people taking showers, should clean up after themselves better and the front shower areas smelled a bit like rubber. Over all the park was nice and the cabin was o.k.
Aug 25, 2013
campgrounds were very clean and welcoming. My only complaint would be the beds in the cabins are like sleeping on a rock!! And the front desk girl was so dumb!!! if your going to work some where u should be educated about ur surrounding sight seeing and the place if your employment. more than once i had gone to her to find out info about different things to do she looked at me like i had a 3rd eye

This KOA is run by very caring folks. It is very clean and when problems arise they are dealt with immediately!!!! Everyone was very eager to give suggestions on where to visit and spent time doing it. We will most surely return here if we visit the area again. Donna and Mike

Usually I camp in a tent but was alone with my 2 boys and decided to stay in a cabin. The cabin had a bad smell but the owners did everything they could to help out and alleviate the smell. Still, it remained stuffy in there. Good location, great pool. Nice people. Cabin site itself was small and we had to move the picnic table to make room for our camping chairs. Bathrooms icky---showers tiny!
