We stayed 2 nights at Seawall and is was perfect, large site private and wooded with shade #008 a tent site, with a picnic table and large stone fireplace with a heavy iron grate. Our only 2 complaints were a neighbor's large dog that barked way too much (come on Mr dog owner?) and the fact that there wern't any showers!!!! you could shower down the road at the store/Lobster Pound for $1.00/2 minutes seriously?The bathroom was however very clean and well lit. We enjoyed a lobster dinner at the casual Beal's Lobster Pound,it was a wonderful treat. This island is a wonderful and we really enjoyed camping on the "quiet side" of the island what a way to start out National Park Adventure with Acadia

Great campground on the quiet side, walk-in sites are close and can be annoying with loud neighbors, but facilities are clean, the Seawall is a short walk or bike ride away. Great to be away from the hustle and bustle of Bar Harbor

Very nice c/g for NP. Out at the end of Desert Island across the road from a stone seawall and the Atlantic Ocean. Typical NP with many regs, lots of Rangers and staff, good access to camping, tough getting into many sites due to trees being right where you want to bend your rig to fit in the site.

Old park, sites only about 45-50' long, heavily treed with lots of shade in most cases. No utilities, water and dump station nearby, generator rules are liberal.

One of three C/G in the park. The other is close to the "Disney World" side of the Park, i.e.: Bar Harbor, Sand Beach, Parkway Drive and hikers and bikers and kids all over the roads. Lots of traffic there at Blackwoods c/g.

The Seawall C/G is close to nice little towns like Southwest Harbor, Bass Harbor and less formality than the Bar Harbor atmosphere. More our kinda place! Very uncrowded in early June as weather and family activities keep the hoards from traveling then.

This Acadia National Park campground is located at the south end of Mount Desert Island. The campground is pretty with decent paved roads. However the sites are small and close together in a wooded setting, not uncommon for a national park. Some of the sites have no separation at all with the neighbor on one side. The bathroom door slammed when people came and went. We found the crowded atmosphere unpleasant and mostly hid inside our camper while there, running our air cleaner to clear the heavy campfire smoke.

We were able to snag a site without a reservation in Aug 2015 by calling ahead that day. Since it is a good drive out of the way, they will hold a site for you for 1 hour. You can call once you get to the town of Ellsworth. However, we couldn't get the same site for 3 nights and had to move after 2. Check out time is an absurdly early 10am, which was helpful on our move day, but inconvenient on our check out day.

The campground is a good location for a base of operations to explore Acadia National Park. Across the road from the campground is the Seawall day use area which is a pretty overlook on the atlantic ocean. Great spot for a picnic or to hang out and relax for the day. Lots to see and do in Acadia National Park. During peak season, it is a good idea to take advantage of the free shuttle as parking at the popular spots can be very difficult.

We enjoyed our stay here. We drove up without reservations and got 3 days in the campground. Sites for rv’s are close together but there is some vegetation between most sites. No power, sewer,or water hookups. Also no showers, just restrooms. C loop is a generator use loop. Lots to see and do on this part of the park but not as spectacular as the other side of the park.

We stayed here because we couldn’t get reservations for a full week at Blackwoods . We were happy it turned out that way because we really enjoyed our time at Seawall on “the Quiet Side”. We preferred the smaller towns here to Bar Harbor. Don’t miss the walk to the beachside picnic area. Loop C is the only loop for RVs and the first row of sites (2-12) are paired up twin sites. Although you are indeed right next to your neighbor, they are arranged so you park street side to street side. Our rate is the Senior pass rate.

Beautiful camp site but very loud.. it is Tuesday Sept 16 and thought children would be in school. People need to control their children and Adults needs to lower their voices.

Staff was very friendly. Our site had a wood stump in the middle of it that made navigating difficult. Beautiful wooded sites, but close together and not much privacy. Not ideal for campers over 25 feet - low hanging branches and tight spaces.

The sites are close but most have trees between them. I say most because some didn’t. That looked awkward for the two parked right next to each other. You would have your own sitting area on the other side of your camper then.
We stayed at 23 & 26 both nice spots. They let us park our trailer in the amphitheater parking when we were in between spots and doing the park loop.
This is a little out of the way for the most popular park destinations but not too bad if you plan it right.
Charlottes Legendary Lobster Pound before the entrance is a must stop for dinner.
