Tent Reviews

We have stayed at Bar Harbor KOA for years, and found it not as good this year. Our site was very dirty when we arrived, with raw eggs under the table and food on the picnic table. There were spiders in the showers. People bring their dogs into the bathrooms and leave them loose in there.A dog at the pancake breakfast that put its face on my table.Camp store has been rearranged, not as good .

The experience was great, staff is super friendly. The only negative experience is we had a lot of campers cutting thru our campsite to get to the oceanfront, and not using the public access areas. This was definitely disturbing to our experience.

Possibly the best KOA we've stayed at. Very clean, all employees were super nice.. we already want to come back again!

The staff is very nice. I wish the playground was nicer And the activities were not so expensive. We paid extra for one of the water front camp sites but it was not actually water front (406) the site along the road by the store have much more shore access and water view the. 406 does. Very disappointing

Easy check in/out. Office walked us through all the information since it was our first time. It was convenient to get wood ordered through a text and delivered to our campsite. We also love the location of the Koa, the ability to get food and coffee at the cafe, the friendliness of the staff, and cleanliness all around.

I had a nice stay, but was disappointed that the wifi did not work on my side of the campground where the tents were, even walking up towards the bathrooms and laundry I couldn't get it. Also the snack bar/restaurant was closed. I pay more to stay at KOAs because of those 2 features. Without them I may as well have paid half as much to stay at any regular camp ground.

I have never had a bad experience at a KOA. We truly enjoyed our stay, and all the staff were super friendly. Great views, and the grounds were super clean/well taken care of.

Nice location and view on the ocean, about 30 minutes drive from hikes in Acadia Nat Park. Halloween activities looked very fun even though I didn’t have the time to participate. Tent sites are nice and cozy.

Yellow jacket nest next to the site was a real nuisance - 2 campers stung, unfortunately staff was limited in what they could do to help. Fantastic facility and kind employees.

Les toilettes étaient excessivement sales. La fan était pleine de poussière et de mouches ��� les cadres de porte étaient vraiment sale. Il y avait des pansements souillés sous le banc de la salle de bain. De plus, le couvre-feu n’est pas respecté par les autorités. Musique et crie jusqu’à 2:00 am!

Very friendly staff great vibe the minute you start checking. Clean and accommodating. Will return

Reserved a prime ocean site but the picture shown on the website was not the site we were assigned, which was deceiving. Could barely see the ocean from our site because of all the tree branches. Aside from that, we enjoyed our stay. Restrooms and area for trash disposal were not too far away. Staff at check-in and the store were very friendly and welcoming.

It was great being by the ocean and the staff was great! Very well maintained. The only thing I would have said is missing is a pool.

We appreciate the upkeep, cleanliness, and site services you provide to keep us out of the stores and focus on the fun. .

Everything was excellent - the site was beautiful, staff was great, facilities were clean.

The campground is great, we had site 406 which is huge, however 405 seems better since 406 is supposed to be oceanfront but far from the water. Lean-up kitchen and wifi are great to have. Bit expensive for camping though (150$/night).

Love that tent sites have both water and electric. Though I didnt use the service of delivery, I think its a nice feature. I did find your icecream to be expensive.

Beautiful sights located right on the ocean. It’s like waking up on your own private beach on the rocky Maine coast.

Good location, friendly staff. However, our tent site was located directly behind registration and was pretty terrible. It 200 ft away from a main road, which was noisy throughout the night, taking away from the camping experience. It was also a shared site with 2 sites placed on an open field with little to no privacy from any side. These site details were not communicated at booking

I didn’t know I needed a reservation to see the sunrise on Cadillac mountain. I went to the store wondering where else I could go because we really wanted to see it. A very kind employee gave me a business card for a woman who drives a shuttle bus up there. Also, there was a very helpful man who rode in the cart. Sometimes he had his dogs with him. He helped me with the buses and more.

We stayed for 2 nights and we wish we could’ve stayed longer. The staff is friendly and we loved that there was always an activity available for the guests and children. We highly recommend this place and we’re definitely coming back.

Advertised a water front site. Did not get a waterfront site. Very small site surrounded by people. Not relaxing. Way to many children.

All the employees were very nice and the facilities were very clean for a campground. Great location, enjoyed the stay very much.

Loved or tent site and loved that there is water and electric on site .We were in 422. I would have liked to have been able to reserve a site before we got there. There were only 2 to chose from. There was a cabin next door and the dog had a long rope and came on our side of the fence to potty. The owner did clean it up, but was a jarring note. The staff was friendly and everything was clean.

We loved our stay at Bar Barber KOA. Customer service was excellent, the activities & amenities were great. We would come back for sure!

I’ve been coming here since it was Barcadia, and while I don’t like a lot of the “corporate” changes since the new ownership, it will always be the campground that I knew and loved as a child. I wish you could book out more than 11 months ahead, you used to be able to do a year at least.

My family and I absolutely love this campground. Everything is so well run and you cannot beat the location!

Overall I love this place and have come back a couple times. However, I was disappointed in our site this time. I prepaid for an oceanview deluxe campsite. However, we were not truly oceanside, but had a view of a swampy marshland. Not nearly as pretty and more full of mosquitoes than an oceanside site would have been. Staff are great! Very fun for kids.

Wish we had the bigger cabin but it was clean & everything was in order. The campground had gorgeous views, great activities for the kids & great service if needed. Wifi was iffy at times.

The KOA Bar Harbor/Oceanside is a fantastic place to base your Acadia National Park adventure. We have stayed here four or five times and it never disappoints. The cabins are amazingly clean, the grounds are fantastic, and the location cannot be beat. If I could give it more than five stars, I would.

Really awesome campground. All sites seem nice. They vary in size, accessibility, and hookups (campers, cabins, tents). We loved our spot right at the water's edge. Clean, quiet, food truck (breakfast, seafood, dessert), playground, dog park, honey wagon, etc.
