“We are a family who is used to state park campgrounds and I have to tell you that this campground blows those out of the water. From the (mostly) private, wooded lots to the size of the campground to the pristinely clean (cleaned 2x a day) bathrooms, this is most definitely the place to go if you want to camp near Bar Harbor. I have to say that it’s very refreshing to find a campground that rents to like-minded folks. We observe quiet hours, clean up our trash and take very good care of our sites. At 10pm, you could hear a pin drop in that place! I love that they have staff that live on site with very clearly marked housing. I felt comfortable enough allowing my 9 year old to walk to the Gathering Place alone and he loved it!” – Dinkerbugs, TripAdvisor

What People Are Saying About Mainstay Cottages and RV Park

“This small park gets high marks for a spectacular setting, ideal location for sightseeing, nice level pads and services, free washer and clothesline (solar dryer!) and good wifi. The proprietors are friendly and helpful and take pride in their facility and town. The downsides are: VERY close together sites sharing the same pedestal. We could NOT put out our awning all the way. The way to avoid this is to book early and request a sideview slot rather than a front view one…there are only a couple or so of those but have much more room. You are buying a well equipped parking spot with solid water, electric, sewer and wifi…and a spectacular water view in a clean and quiet central location. I gave it an 8 for the beauty! We would return. We camped at MainStay Cottages and RV Park in a Motorhome.” – Camaraderie, RV Park Reviews
