RV Parks

Bar Harbor and other towns on Mount Desert Island have private RV Parks and Camping Resorts that offer amenities for camping comfort. Most if not all have hot showers, camp stores, full hookups, tent sites, and sites for large RVs. Many have swimming pools, scheduled activities, free WiFi, kayak/paddle boat rentals, and the choice of ocean or wooded sites. A few private campgrounds also rent RVs and camping cabins. Some allow pets on leash while others do not allow pets at all.

Public Campgrounds

Blackwoods and Seawall Campgrounds are within Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island. While the majority of sites are for tents, a number of sites accommodate pop-ups and RVs up to 35 feet. All sites are wooded; none are on the ocean. There are no hookups and no hot water. Pets are allowed on leash. 

Facilities include picnic tables, fire rings, pit toilets, and cold running water. Showers and camping supply stores are within one-half mile of each campground.

Both national park campgrounds offer quiet, simple camping within a 10-minute walk to the ocean. Park rangers lead campground evening programs during the summer months. Because both campgrounds are inside park boundaries, they offer easy access to trails and other extraordinary natural attractions of Acadia National Park.
