Campgrounds of Acadia

Acadia National Park has two main campgrounds, both very large. Despite this, Acadia is one of the most visited parks in the United States in the summer months. Open sites are a rare thing during this period. Both are located in wooded areas. Neither has any ocean views.

Blackwoods Campground

  • Size & Cost: 306 sites, $30 per site
  • Open: All Year (primitive in winter)
  • Reservations: May through October, Reserve Online
  • Location: Just off of ME-3 five miles south of Bar Harbor
  • Amenities: Running water, flush toilets, fire rings and picnic tables, showers and campstore nearby
  • Demand: Very high. The campground is often full, and in peak season, mid-June to mid-August, it will almost certainly be. Reservations strongly suggested.

Seawall Campground

  • Size & Cost: 214 sites, $22-30 per site
  • Open: May through mid-October
  • Reservations: Reserve Online
  • Location: Off of ME-102A four miles south of Southwest Harbor
