Acadia is your spot for rugged adventure and ocean-side relaxation. It is one of the most visited National Parks in the United States, where you can take care of all your vacationing needs in one spot. Meander along the towering cliffs and sandy beaches, hike the miles of trail, bike the tree-lined carriage roads, or kayak the peaceful ponds and lakes. Blackwoods Campground is a ten-minute walk from the coast and a free shuttle service connects the campground with all of Acadia’s stellar attractions.

Stayed here in September and loved it. The campground is quiet and clean. There are bathrooms on-site but you do need to drive to the showers.

Great facilities with a prime location. Walking distance from one of the best views in Maine. Which is hard for me to say after all the beauty we saw camping our way up the coast of Maine. So trust me, it's good. And yes it does fill up quick!

Definitely a spot to see!! but advanced planning is definitely a must! Blackwoods is nice as it offers the opportunity for a camping experience while visiting the national park, but is also accessible both for car campers and hikers to have easy access to Bar Harbor. Make use of the free public bus to and from the campground to explore-- huge help & takes you to the Park Loop Road, a must.

Great Campground but requires a NPS pass in addition to the camping fee. Campground lacks showers but a private shower service is available at the entrance

Site A30 is amazing. Set back and a bit more private than the others but still close to the trailhead and the path to the ocean overlook,
