Acadia National Park Maine

Hi all. Headed up for 2 nights at the Blackwoods Campground in Acadia the 2 more nights at the Seawall Campground a little ways away on Friday. Has anyone spent any time in these campgrounds? Impressions? Suggestions? We are not bringing the toad but will have our mountain bikes and they run a shuttle from Blackwoods to Bar Harbor. From there we are off to the Moosehead Lake area for 2 more nights then to Newport Vermont to spend a couple of days with our daughter & granddaughter. Hoping for good weather.

We were there five years ago and loved it. The trails are great for biking but it rained 10" while we were there (record rainfall for many years) and trails were several inches deep or more under water do we did not ride. Elaine has a recumbent trike and she would have sitting in hthe water

Beautiful park, we were there last Fall. You do know about the low clearances on the park road? You'll have to use Rt 3 to enter and exit Blackwoods. Too bad, the park road has lots to see! It's one way for most of it and 2 lanes wide, plenty of room for bikes.

Got back Saturday afternoon from our trip. Acadia has some beautiful National Park campsites. Blackwoods campground was full both nights and the sites are much closer together than at Seawall campground. We didn't bring the toad so used the free shuttle buses to get around. Seawall is at least an hour to get into Bar Harbor while Blackwoods is about half an hour to get to the Village Green hub. Last shuttles leaving Bar Harbor back to the campgrounds leaves about 9 PM so it doesn't leave you much time to stay in town for the evening. The regular shuttle buses could accommodate 3 bicycles & there is a specific bike shuttle that can take 6 bikes around as well. Blackwoods has a potable water fill at the dump station. Did not have to dump at Seawall so not sure about there. The Park Loop Rd has two 12 foot and one 10 foot underpass so we took a trolley from town up to Cadillac Mountain. Can't wait to visit the area again.

Unless it's waaaaaay far away from the actual dump station I would not use it.
