This spot has been in the family since 1935. Apple trees and wildlife abound year round. 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. We continue to provide free, locally grown, organic firewood in order to combat inflation and help you stretch your vacation dollar. 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.

I had a great stay at Julie's spot in Lamoine. Acadia was completely shut down due to the off season, so her spot was one of the closest places to MDI available. Julie and Kevin were very responsive and helpful with information. I had strong cell service to allow me to use my mobile hotspot and get work done.

Great site with caring owners!
Really nice private spot with 1 RV full hook up and 1 cabin separated by a fence. Right by Ellsworth which is a nice small town. All near Acadia NP. Great location all the way around. Owner met us upon arrival and offered places to eat/go. Very friendly couple. Needed to have a package mailed to us and they were great about it: couldn’t have asked for a better stay!

Awesome!
Great spot! Beautiful way to see the stars. Hosts were awesome and helpful with the stay. About a 20min drive to bar harbor. We used it as a base camp for exploring Acadia. Would totally go again! Thanks!

Good RV setup with full hookups. We were in 27’ motorhome and had no issues. Kevin and Julie were excellent hosts and made us feel quite welcome. Had good recommendations for local hiking and laundromats. Traffic moves fast on road so need to exercise caution when leaving. Overall, good place

Loved having a full hookup at Ellie's RV spot in close proximity to all things Acadia. Julie and Kevin were super helpful with advice on our plans. My daughter loved playing cornhole every night with Ellie's RV branded corn hole!

Large private site close to Acadia
Great large spot that was convenient to Arcadia National Park. Our hosts went above and beyond making us feel welcome and ensuring we had a comfortable stay. We appreciated the local insight and tips and the free locally grown organic firewood was a nice touch. The site is off of a road and there is some traffic noise but nothing overwhelming. The RV Campgrounds closer to the park look crowded and loud. Our four-night stay with our dog was relaxing and star gazing in the evening is incredible. Thank you, J&K, for a lovely experience.

Such great host and RV spot close to Acadia and Bar Harbor! Julie and Kevin were very responsive to any questions and recommendations. We loved the view from our site of the Aspen trees. We shared the property with small vacation home that Kevin just built but with the privacy fence between us we didn't even know someone else was around.

Ellie's RV Spot is in a great location for exploring the Acadia area. There's plenty of room and the kids really enjoyed the basketball hoop and the open area for playing. Julie and Kevin are awesome hosts...super friendly and very knowledgeable about the area. Kevin clued us into a great swimming spot nearby and some excellent less traveled hiking in the park. Highly recommend we would definitely stay again!

We really enjoyed our stay! The site was in a great location to explore both parts of Acadia- Mount Desert Island and the Schoodic Peninsula. Kevin and Julie were great hosts and the site was level and well equipped with water, electric, and sewer- firewood too.

Wonderful spot and hosts
These folks are the best hosts ever. This was my first time ever pulling a trailer. Kevin made my hitch safe (amazing I made it there!), gave me a back up lesson and was incredibly hospitable. His wife is also a lovely human being, the definition of good neighbors and hosts. The site is well located for both Mount Desert Island and the Schoodic Peninsula, with charming small towns and a deserted beach right nearby. We had several dogs with us which I expected would not behave well, so we had picked a spot where there would be no other campers. They calmed right down and I was able to get them used to the trailer in a peaceful setting. Kevin is also building a beautiful little cabin with high ceilings and a loft which will be available to rent in the future, and a new fence screens noises from the road. This is a quiet area and the apple tree was in bloom right outside our trailer door which was lovely. Electric, garbage and water were easy to access! We could not have been happier on our first trailer adventure!

We loved Julie's land , we like Lamoine and this remarkable site makes it easy to get around to different places. The hospitality of Kevin and Julie just add to the overall enjoyment. We will book a time for our fall trip.

Excellent Stop
This spot was perfect for what we were trying to do…..winter camp. We avoided all the crowds at Acadia by coming in winter and this spot was perfect. Hookups were great. We didn’t have access to water of course due to temps. Getting in and out was great and the location was only about 15 minutes to bar harbor. Only about 3 minutes to Wal Mart

Local Hosts Make Great Spot
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.

Convenient and private location
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.

Ellie's RV Spot was a great place to camp in Downeast Maine. It is convenient to Acadia NP and has quicker access to US 1 for traveling to other sights/natural areas than staying on MDI. Julie was a great host and very attentive to her guests needs. I would definitely recommend.

Pictures are misleading
It is in a perfect location right outside of Arcadia, where we spent all of our time. Right now they are still working on finishing the airbnb and fencing on the property. Once the fencing is up, it will become an even better location because this spot is located off a very busy road and the noise of semi trucks all night and morning was too much. Like I said, we spent the days hiking so we do not know what the traffic was like during that time but please beware of heavy early morning traffic. Lastly, the field was covered in fire ants which didnt make it enjoyable for us or the dogs. Luckily we had a rug to stay on but it still wasn't picture perfect as advertised.

Convenient without crowded campsite
Quiet with full hook-ups. Owner was very helpful and is adding a fence for privacy and to reduce noise even more.
