We stayed here mid July and really enjoyed the campground. The owners were very nice and helpful. The campground was quiet, with a lot of seasonal campers. The campground is on a Branch lake which is great for swimming, boating and fishing.

Stayed at this lovely campground at site 15B great tent site, plenty of room to move around on, tucked back in with some privacy, quiet, laid back, family friendly place, nice beach for the kiddo to swim, and the parents to kick back and take in the nice weather. Defiantly will be returning to this spot for some more R&R.. Thanks Branch Lake Campground for having me any my family!

Looking for a campground that is family friendly and not just a big party? Then this is your campground. We have been going to this camp ground for years and my family loves it. It is clean, well maintained, and the lake swimming is one of the best in the state. The staff is not angry, as some have mentioned, but they do not tolerate bad behavior. I, for one, like that. I know that my kids can have a great outdoor experience swimming, catching frogs & turtles, and getting penny candy at the store...and we adults get the much needed peace and quiet after a busy week in the city. Acadia National Park is only half an hour drive from the campground and the City of Ellsworth is only 15 minutes away for any needs you might have. There are plenty of overnight sites, but you have to call early to get one of them. I highly recommend it!

We have stayed a few times and will come back for more. We set up a tent and have plenty of room for our kids. Everyone including staff, owners and residents are amazing. Great playground for the kids tons of room on the campsite we use. Its a hike to the restroom but I'm ecstatic they have one with showers! I'm happy to pay for being able to shower and use a real restroom that's clean. If you join the Facebook page they have tons of special events for everyone. Every time we stay it reminds me of my time spent with my family in Illinois as a child. Couldn't be happier! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT!

Response from Branchlakecamping, Owner at Branch Lake Camping Area
Responded Nov. 11, 2014
Our campground has a good mix of seasonal and day to day sites. We are frequented by repeat local business which may give an impression of being all seasonal. While all sites may not be right on the water, over 10 sites have water view. The showers cost is a quarter for 7 minutes of hot water. Our bathrooms are checked frequently and keep clean. Our store contains many essential items ie. Toothpaste, soap, ice, drinks, camping supplies, milk, candy etc. We are sorry that staff seems angry or unhelpful. This will be addressed for next season.
