Ellie's is a new (May 2019) single RV site designed for use by all Class A thru C motorized or towable style recreational vehicles including conversion vans or off grid vehicles. 50 or 30 amp electric, water, sewer and wifi are provided. Should you choose to book this site and use a vehicle that doesn't have a shower and toilet on board, you will not have access to a bathroom on site.  You must provide your own porta potty. The RV's pictured belong to past guests and are not available for rent.  Ellie's is located to allow easy access to both the Mount Desert Island section of Acadia and the Schoodic Peninsula section. August 2021 update: You can purchase your park pass online and print it before you arrive. Reservations for Cadillac Mtn are now required due to overcrowding.

All rigs including off grid and pop-ups, please set up on GRAVEL PAD only. Stay off grass area to prevent damage to the private septic system.

**Tenting is not an option on this site, sorry.** 

Campfires are allowed on this site when winds are under 10 mph. Check local weather first.

While Ellie's doesn't have direct water access, there are many shoreline points of access close by. Beaches and water access are everywhere. Wide open space does exist. Come explore the Maine coast.

Commuter traffic can be seen and heard from Ellie's RV spot. In 2019 over 3.5 million people visited the Acadia area.  2021 has been jammed with visitors, more than ever before, be patient.

The construction of a small post and beam cabin is taking place 8am-4pm near Ellie's RV spot. Privacy of guests is priority. Many site improvements are taking place  based on material and contractor availability, both of which have been by hampered by the Covid-19 virus. 

For winter RVing, please send a request before booking. We have 30 or 50 amp electric and sewer only from Nov 1 ~April 30. Water, wifi and trash removal are suspended for the winter. Snow might prevent access during some weeks, others it will not. Request first please.

Need an RV? Search "maine rv freedom hampden". Melissa has a beauty of a rig all set to travel and live in.

Questions? Please ask I'm very responsive.

#Update, September 11, 2021. The crush of visitors is slowing for 2021. Warm temps during the day make for fantastic hiking and cooler temps at night make for great sleeping weather. The lines are going away, parking is available now too!

WOW! If you are planning to go to Acadia, you won't regret your stay at Ellie's RV Spot!

The spot itself is just off the Main Street to get to the Island. It has full hookups and privacy walls. There's a great green space and fire pit. Very very well maintained and kept clean.

Julie and Kevin are so kind and had great recommendations -- ask where to get some cheese cake!-- They are locals and Kevin grew up on Mt. Dessert Island so he knows the happenings like the back of his hand.

We had a great couple of days using this site as our launching site to explore the area with our dogs. The site was easy to access and super convenient to access the nearby beach, state park, national park and bar harbor waterfront. With all the crowded campgrounds nearby, it was nice to come back to our very own private spot. Julie and Kevin checked in regularly and were great hosts. Also loved the free firewood and basketball!

The camp site was the biggest by far of any I've seen! Set up was easy as you could move your rig to any angle that suited you. It was very private as you were the only ones there and there was a new large fence along the street side of the lot. It was a little noisy at times from the street but ac on and RV windows closed it was not a problem. Julie and Ken were very accommodating and friendly and checked in with us offend in our 3 night stay. It was a short run to Arcadia National park, but with this camp being on the main land you had many other options close at hand. I'll be back!

Convenient location, spacious, and very clean - full hookups we’re great! Host was super friendly and helpful. Road noise wasn’t really an issue with the new privacy fence. Would stay there again.
