Report: This campground is absolutely fabulous and is one of Maine's nicest state campgrounds. It's only about a fifteen minute drive from Mount Desert Island and Acadia National Park. If you are planning a trip to Bar Harbor/Acadia, this is the best place to stay. Campgrounds closer to the park tend to be very crowded and the camping spaces are much smaller. More importantly, you'll pay 2-4 times as much per night. Many of the spaces overlook the ocean. If you're looking for a fabulous camping experience, you can't beat Lamoine State Park.
