Site was beautiful and toilet was clean, exactly as described. The Beehive was nice because we didn’t have to mule all our gear too far from the car and it felt more like car camping which for our one day visit was fine. The road was definitely quite close though and loud especially early in the morning. The other sites are probably quieter since they are up the hill a bit.

Overall beautiful place and just a short drive to beautiful sites!

Beehive was extremely close to the parking lot which was nice for retrieving items but also we could hear the high way all night long, and anytime campers on the other sites needed to come or go they walked by our site so it wasn't terribly private. The outhouse was in rough shape but to be expected I guess.. the beehive site was also slanted (from chatting with other campers they all were that way) so it made for a difficult night of sliding off out mattress pad all night. The site had a lot of roots and I twisted my ankle on the first night. All to say... I wouldn't come again BUT it is within driving distance to Arcadia, we hung up our hammock and enjoyed the campfire, so it's certainly comfortable enough to work with. And hey, we were camping to keep socially distanced during our trip to Arcadia and this site allowed us to accomplish that !

Acadia East Campground is an okay option - pros: close to Schoodic point, parking is well labeled, bathroom was relatively clean and had toilet paper and hand sanitizer. Cons: so much noise from the road, labeling of campsites wasn’t great- for beehive it was hard to tell what the actual plot was, over 45 minute drive to the main trailheads of Acadia

This campground and site are literally just off a very busy road. Roaring cars were audible and visible from the site, which was full of roots, slanted and completely unappealing. We didn’t even unpack - it was so depressing to imagine staying there for a night (much less two as we had planned). I would not recommend staying there to anyone
