Review: Bar Harbor Campground ME

Bar Harbor Campground

Photo from Campmaine.com (unfortunately I did not get any good pictures of the campground)

The Bar Harbor campground is in an excellent location, right off the main strip (Highway 3) into Bar Harbor and has a view of the water.  The campground itself is well run and has all the facilities, like a pool (with a view of the water), laundry, comfort stations etc.  There are forested sites and grass sites along with full hookup, electric and no hookup.  There is also an excellent Lobster Pound/bar/ice cream stand just outside the gate of the park.

The one catch to this campground that concerns people is that they do not take reservations and you have to pay in cash.  With that out of the way it is easy to work around this and it is worth it because the park is excellent, especially if you get a water view site.  When we went we had a backup reservation at the National Park for the first night.  When we got to the park there was a few sites left so we did not need the other reservation.  You can also move into a new site as someone vacates it and notify the office.
