Acadia National Park 
I'll be having a few relatives coming over from Australia early next year, and one of the places they want to try camping at is at Acadia National Park. We're heading there this coming March. Any suggestions for a good campground here or around the area?

Re: Acadia National Park 
There are two campgrounds within the park: Blackwoods and Seawall. Both are 10 minutes from the ocean. Stayed at Blackwoods, and it was pretty okay. Although majority of the sites here are tents, there are some sites for RVs that can accommodate up to 35 feet long. No hookups though, but have comfort rooms, dump stations, picnic tables and fire rings. There's a lot of firewood here so you don't need to bring your own. At least you're within the park itself so it's pretty close to anything.

Hope that helps!

Re: Acadia National Park 
We tried camping at Blackwoods two years ago and it was great. It's near the parkway and Bar Harbor. The bathrooms were just updated that time and are really clean. There are no showers inside the campground itself, but there are paid showers just outside the campground's entrance that's open for 24 hours. There are free shuttle services that go through the campground that will take you to the parkway. Take note that since there are only about 40 RV sites here, you'll need to make reservations well ahead in advance to get one.

Re: Acadia National Park 
Will you be camping using a tent or RV? Blackwoods is great if you're relatives don't mind doing a bit of primitive camping, but if they're looking for something, I'd suggest going for a campground in the Bar Harbor area. It's very close to Acadia. The campgrounds here offer a lot more facilities, and many of them offer full-hookups in case you're going to be using an RV or camper.

Agree with Blackwoods. Been there once and loved it!
