Bar Harbor Oceanside KOA is the only campground on the west side of the island, so pull up a camp chair & watch the pastel sunset spread across the horizon from your waterfront site or sunset patio.

5,316,000 Lobsters are eaten in Bar Harbor every year.  Shouldn't one of them be yours?  We think so and so does Dakota the Lobster Dude... serving them up 7 nights a week.  Learn how to "Eat like a Local" steamed not boiled of course.  Or pick fresh Mussels fresh from the shore.  Steam them up with a little bit of garlic and Atlantic Brewery's Stout and dipped in butter.  Yum!  Recipes and steam pots are available at the store.   

When it's time to explore the island, jump on the free shuttle from Bar Harbor KOA campground directly to Acadia National Park.  When you get back to camp the fun doesn't end there.  Join us for the planned activities for the young and the young at heart.  Bring the kids to Krustation Station for a train ride on the Lobster Express or one of the many activities.

While camping at Bar Harbor Oceanside KOA, don't forget that we at the camp store pride ourself on being able to take care of all your needs while visiting the island.  We carry the camp basics like hotdogs {Fenway Park Kayem), bacon and local eggs, S'More fixings, the best selection of local beer, wine, ciders, as well as, tarps, flashlights, firewood, and ice.  Just ask and we'll deliver it all right to your site, no charge.  Can't find it, tell us, we'll do everything we can to get it for you.  

If you couldn't tell by now, we love it here at the Bar Harbor KOA, let us show you how much!
