Mount Desert Campground is located in the heart of world famous Mount Desert Island. Just minutes from Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. Spend your day sightseeing and shopping around the many local towns, rent a bike, sail on a schooner, go rock climbing in Acadia,

or spend your afternoon at Sand Beach. Explore the extraordinary shopping and dining opportunities in Northeast Harbor or Southwest Harbor. You can even rent a kayak right here at the campground and explore the beautiful Somes Sound.

Notice: Since we must dedicate most of our energy to preparing the campground for the upcoming season, our time in the office is scaled back until our seasonal staff arrives during the latter half of May. For the next few weeks, our office hours will be changing often as necessity demands. Please call us at (207) 244-3710 for weekly office hour updates. Thank you! We officially open for the season on Thursday, May 26, 2016.

Notice: The small bathroom ("A minus" building) next to the Gathering Place was damaged beyond repair in the off-season. After many weeks of working and waiting to secure all the required state and local permits for commercial use structures, we are finally allowed to begin work on the replacement building. Unfortunately, we do not have a firm date of completion. We will post an update when the new, larger and ADA compliant building is complete. Buildings A" and E are the next closest facilities. We apologize for any inconvenience.
