We were disappointed in our stay at Desert Narrows. The site was not level and the showers were in bad shape. We had no contact with staff after checking in. It was very expensive for what we received.

Campground was nice, sites need some gravel and possible leveling. It was late in the season so we were happy to get a site. I have managed several large parks so I feel the CG needs some attention. People do not like driving and parking in or through mud holes to set up or arriving in the CG. Staff was...

Staff was very friendly and helpful. Campground was quiet. Waterfront site nice. Campground needs some maintenance. Acadia National Park was very busy, but beautiful hiking. Carriage roads offer off road biking & walking in some of the most beautiful spots on the island.

What a fantastic place to stay if you are visiting Bar Harbor! Beautiful view!! The staff was so friendly and helpful. It is very close to everything. We will be visiting again. There is a bus available which we recommend because parking can be a challenge downtown.

The campground was pretty much empty when we stayed. However, we noticed that the sites are extremely close to one another which I don't like. Other than that, the stay was nice and the staff were extremely friendly, helpful, and informative. Overall, we would most likely stay here again.

Wasn't that impressed with this campground, we had been travelling for about two weeks and stayed at a number of campgrounds. The office staff was very efficient and the price for this campground was on the higher scale. The site hadn't been cleaned since the previous camper had left, there was garbage left in the fire pit a dirty fork...

This facility does not classify as a resort. It primarily services tent campers and water/electric only rv campers. There is no mosquito control. An apple tree near our site shed its fruit and was never picked up. The grass at our site was not cut when we arrived. Leaves from last fall were never raked from the site during our...
