We stayed in the KOA in our 33' 5th wheel a few years back and there were a lot of MH's there at the time. Haven't been to any other CG's in that area. Hope it helps.

We stayed at the Mt Desert Narrows Campground last summer and really enjoyed it. Several sites on the water, clean faucilities and friendly staff.

Try RV PARKS REVIEW
RV Park Reviews :: Bar Harbor, Maine ( ME ) - RV Parks and Campground Reviews

Read the comments/reviews on the campgrounds. I use this all the time and it has been good to me so far.

I have stayed at the Bar Harbor Campground and it has been great every time.

Maine doesn't put a lot of 50 amp service in their campgrounds because you don't need A/C most of the time. The other thing you have to watch for is in some campgrounds if you want to be close to the water you may not have a sewer hookup because the State Environmental Guys will not allow it.

Any of the Campgrounds on Acadia Island offer big rig sites including 50 Amp.
A word of caution about this area. This is a prime summer time tourist area and they all fill up some times years ahead.

I'm sure you are heading to the Hah-bah for a reason but do not discount the "other" Maine. There are miles and miles of beautiful country side inland. If you have never been to Moosehead Lake. Give it a look-see. It is diffinately not Bar Harbor but you will never see anything like it anywhere else.

You should go to Maine now. My daughter lives there and it was -13* this morning and warmed up to a warm +6* today. There is tons of snow and more coming. You can get a great price on a campsite and any spot you want. It has been a bad winter so far, colder than normally with lots of snow. I was up there for Christmas in the blizzard. It didn't stop anyone. Didn't even slow them down.

We had one of the best meals of our life at the Trenton Bridge Lobster Pound. It is right at the bridge going over to Mount Desert Island and you have to go right by it. We have been there at least 3 times. You pick your lobster live and they cook it in seawater. MMMM MMMM Good.
