Campground Reviews

KOA Oceanside is located very close to Acadia Nat'l Park and Bar Harbor. A great place to launch from as we explored the area. It was very nice to walk around to see the great views along the edge. The cabins looked great. It was nice to have a place on site to get coffee and small cafe items.

Many water view sites. Very friendly and helpful staff. Stayed in a permanent Airstream- very clean!

Clean restrooms. Must have leveling blocks! Good proximity to Acadia.

We enjoyed our stay very much . Very nice employees and great campsites looking out at a beautiful view. The dog attack while I was walking on the beach was a horrible incident for us. My concern is understandable. I hope there is or will soon be a policy to not allow any dog into any KOA campground who has a history on record of any aggressive behavior.

Too crowded, had to request two other campers so we could get into our space, then upon leaving it was the same neighbors moving vehicles or back out of our space through another space!?

Thanks for your input. Due to your comments and others like it we will be revising this section of the camp to allow easier access.

Our site was muddy. Limited showers for the number of sites.

Mother Nature was not kind to us this year. The record rainfall wreaked havoc on the island.

We loved the campground and thought it had beautiful sights and was clean. Staff were very friendly! Didn't care for our site since it was small and no grass. 336 I think was the site. The site to the right of it has 2 large spots of grass and could have used the further one leaving room for our site to have some grassy area. Pre-registration was confusing. said we could have a tent but then no.

Wonderful. Loved the deluxe cabin. Very clean and comfortable.

Bathrooms were clean and convenient. Staff at checkin could have explained more things like ice etc is avalable. The golf cart crew were terrific. Coffee for $2.65 was a bit steep. Liked how quiet and respectful the guests were.

Terrible communication. Left a message for a pump out at 8 pm the night before we needed it. Received a call back at 4:30 pm the next day that claimed they just listened to their messages. Said there would be a $25 emergency fee to pump for missing 11 am deadline. Charged my card over $41. Leave phone on night service after their 9 am office opening. Didn’t respond to another phone message.

The stay was great. The only issue we had is that the power is not sufficient. Normally, KOA's power outlets for tent sites are dedicated per site. This one is shared between 2 sites (Or maybe more). So when we need the heat that night, the breaker tripped. The other issue is that it took the next day to have the breaker reset despite numerous calls. The reason why we booked KOA this cold season.

Everything was wonderful except when someone hit our parked truck at site 350. May want to put a unit with vehicle that needs to park. That is a difficult turn for larger campers to make. Now we have to deal with damages to our fairly new truck

We had a spot for our fifth wheel that overlooked the beach and the ocean and the sun would set outside our bedroom window. Probably the most beautiful KOA campground we have ever stayed at.

The campground itself is in a great location and has the basics, but the camping cabins are very, very dark plus you need to leave your car in a parking area and use a wagon to get your belongings to your cabin. This can take several trips! The camping cabin site is very private, but you are not able to drive to the shower or laundry without going out of the cabin ground and then coming back in.

I was incredibly disappointed with the customer service. I booked site 405 which states is the best site, when we arrived I was told someone else has that site booked and I was given site 406 instead and was told it was just as nice but def was not. No one showed up the first night and the 2nd night a couple showed up and said they called that day to book the site for 1 night, this happened twice.

Great staff and the waterfront sites are worth the hype!

Aside from the first night where we had some noisy neighbors who either didn’t know about quiet hours or didn’t care about them, our stay was great. Friendly staff, very nice tent site, clean facilities and beautiful views! This was my second time staying here and plan to stay here the next time I’m in Bar Harbor/visiting Acadia!

This was our first KOA experience. Not only are we looking forward to a visit back in Bar Harbor next summer, but we also intend to check out other KOA locations close to our home in Kennebunk. Wonderful service, kindness, cleanliness and fun!

We stayed at the Bar Harbor KOA for two nights in their Air Stream unit. It’s a great stay and we enjoyed the setting and everything they had to offer - including the trick or treat event, even for early Oct. the unit was clean and had all as they advertised. There are two drawbacks however - the heater did work 2nd night and the entry door could not locked from inside. No credit was given.

Staff is always great. Campground is always in great shape. Just one of the best locations.

Very nice, very nicely located. Lobster dinner was over priced. Cool place in a great place to have fun.

The overall facility was very nice and well maintained but the floors of the standard cabin I was in felt very sticky and dirty. The cabin smelled like wet dog.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for letting us know. We have resolved the issue. It appears housekeeping was not rinsing the floors enough to remove the cleaner.

Great stay! Kept so very clean & staff were all polite & friendly. Nice dog park & play area for kids. Has corn hole & horseshoes as well. Cabin was clean, pull out couch sofa bed was comfy compared to others & nice outdoor space. TP's a little on the thin side. Very close to Acadia National Park & not very far from Bar Harbor. Only downside but definitely not a deal breaker are the cabins close to the entrance as you could see & hear the traffic.

We were grateful to get a spot after traveling all day. They were closed for the season but for a $40 donation you could stay on a site and have power and water. It was beautiful.
