Very quiet, small family campground. Not many RV sites. Tent sites all wooded. RV sites were a mix. We are used to a bigger place with more going on but if you want a quiet stay this was perfect. We went here because there were 11 of us and the others in our group do not have RV. We rented a cabin they have and a 32' Trailer. The cabin has no electric or water but perfect for 4 teenage boys. Playground was just slide, couple swings, basketball hoop but our son was still very happy as all he wanted to do was ride his bike and go in the pool. The pool was 78 degrees, very clean and a good size. They said it was only 4 years old. The owners were very friendly and helpful on the phone and in person. As a bonus the owner is a Lobsterman and will catch your dinner. We got 6 Lobsters caught that day, cooked and delivered to our site for $33.....Awesome and amazing price. It was a very pleasant stay and about 30 minutes to Bar Harbor. Food was great in town (Southwest Harbor) at Quietside Cafe (also ice cream until10pm) and Cafe 2.
First Post, Hope it is OK.
