We spent four nights here in a full service RV spot. Our friends had a deluxe cabin. Both were excellent locations. The cabin was nearly brand new. The public restroom was in excellent condition and very clean. We had nothing to complain about; it was all top notch.

We have been going here pretty constantly since 2001. After taking a year off to give the next generation a chance to walk first we returned.
1. Great playground for the kids-check
2. Heated pool with a perfect water slide into the pool for a 5 yr old - check
3. Free hot showers - check
4. Nice little camp store - check
5. Big field to watch the stars play your favorite sport - check
6. Island explorer stop - check

Now with little kids it has become great for a whole new set of reasons.

We stayed in site 61. Plenty of room. Close to the playground and a short walk to the pool and bathrooms.

A small family campground that has clean bathrooms with free hot showers, playground for the kids and a small camp store. Hookups for campers and RVs. We camped in a tent on a small site and our neighbors were 10 feet away. The monster RVs were parked in a separate section occupied by the retired crowd who spent rainy nights watching TV while we huddled under the tarp. The campground has numerous young children riding bikes and playing in the road so drive slowly. The location was close to the Acadia entrances and is a good option if the Acadia campgrounds are full. This is not the place if you want privacy or if you are the party crowd.

Drove all the way from Florida to stay at Smuggler's Den while vacationing in our 30 ft trailer. It exceeded our expectations in every way. Beautiful wooded campground, extremely well kept, full hook-up, big-rig friendly, large sites, wonderful owners, excellent location, great store, nice laundry area, large playground area, basketball court, & beautiful pool with slide that kids AND adults both loved. Our site was beside the pool and we enjoyed watching the kids and adults have fun. They had live entertainment on Monday evenings which we loved because it was tunes from the 70s. The free shuttle comes to the campground several times a day and takes you wherever you would like to go. That is a huge plus and saved us from driving and looking for parking spots. We've camped at Disney and I would rather be at Smuggler's Den any day. Do yourself a favor and stay here when visiting the Bar Harbor area. Best campgroung & nicest owners ever!

We stayed here for a week. At best a thin line of trees between sites. Lots of other campers only stayed one or two nights and would leave early. The playground was great for under 10 year olds with a large field and some balls and other fields games to play as old kids. The pool was also a huge hit. Clean and included a slide that my kids loved. The bathhouse was too far from our site and caused lots of exercise. They should possibly consider a coed style for either bathroom while they are cleaning one of the two. Inside the only main bathhouse it was clean and sufficient for the amount of traffic.
