Imagine a crystal clear night, the sky dotted with millions of stars. The campfire glows and crackles, sending out the sweet smell of burning wood. If you listen, you hear the incoming surf, the occasional cry of a loon, or the quiet laughter of nearby campers. Your tent is up or your RV is hooked, and your vacation has just begun.
No matter what your style of camping, you'll find the perfect fit on Mount Desert Island. Back-to-nature camping with no frills, a cozy cabin with great hot showers, or a campground with a pool, a playground, a store, kayak rentals, and nightly entertainment—it's your call.
Our locally owned camping areas make excellent hubs for families who want to explore the entire island and Acadia National Park. Catch the Island Explorer shuttle bus and head into town for shopping and dining or into the park for hiking or a day at the beach. Then return to your oceanfront site offering beautiful views of the Atlantic and island mountains or to your peaceful and private wooded site.
