We just enjoyed 3 nights at this camp. Cons: No showers. Pros: Nice gravel, level sites. Privacy. Large sites. Clean restrooms. Great trails. Secluded. Love the way they planted greenery in between the sites. I can only imagine this park getting more beautiful as it matures.
Fantastic campground if you want privacy and lots of room. Very well maintained, the place looks new! We were in B loop with water and electric. Pull through site that you could park a semi in! Highly recommend this place as it is away from the hustle of Acadia but is still part of the park. We will go back again!
Park is 2-3 yrs old...secluded in winter harbor (across the bay from bar harbor) very clean, all sites in (b) loop are pull thru...elec. and water...(a) loop is $10 dollars cheaper with elec only... $40 and $30 respectively...only downside no showers...if you have a senior pass or annual pass for nationalparks 50% off, that is fantastic..

Quiet and peaceful. We stayed for 12 days in a 5th wheel in B loop and had plenty of room for my tow rig and a chase car. Electric and water only. The bike trails were crushed gravel and about 6 feet wide so they are not technically challenging, just enjoyable for the whole family. The hiking trails are easy to moderate and well marked; great view from the top of Schoodic Head. Every ranger, volunteer and staff member we interacted with was friendly and helpful. Tenters and showerless RVers need to be aware there are no showers. Schoodic Woods Campground is definitely on my "must stay here again" list.
This is a National Park which was very clean with some large sites. It was somewhat big rig friendly. I was traveling with two other motorhomes (caravan) and my site was the smallest. Electric and water was good - no sewer. WiFi was non-existent unless you got a site near the main office. Cellular reception was very mediocre. If you want to lose contact with family, friends, business... this is the place to go. The rules are extremely enforced. My left tire on the car was 6 inches on the grass... the rangers left a violation notice on my car. Unfortunately my site was quite small for a 40 foot motorhome so I had to park very close to the road. One evening, just after showering, I hear a bang on the front door. Ranger S.S. (Initials of ranger) told me I am not allowed to run the generator. My generator was not on. It was the 3 air-conditioners on the roof. Standard AC s from the factory. His body language was obvious that he did not believe me so I offered to show him where the generator was - since it is a diesel pusher, right up front where we were talking. Also... why would I be running my generator if I was hooked up to 50AMP service. I also told him that generators are not located on roofs of RV s. He finally relented when he saw I was getting quite aggravated with his body language. Another camper near our site told me that she was treated very rudely by the staff. I do not know who she spoke to but Ranger S.S. needs to take interpersonal skills classes and maybe a class on where generators are looked on motorhomes. They obviously will harass someone that is not doing a generator violation but do not enforce barking dogs... There was only one dump station for Loop B. Each RV took about 15 minutes. If you are third in line, you will be waiting... Since there is no sewer, you would think they would offer more than one dump station. No matter if you wear long sleeves and long pants, plus use bug spray, the mosquitos are vicious. Between gnats and mosquitos, sitting outside to eat is nearly impossible. Otherwise, this is a visually beautiful park.
Better bring your bug repellent because those place has tons of mosquitoes and gnats. Campsites were OKAY but the WiFi was nonexistent in our site. No sewer hookups. You need to use the dump station which can get a bit crowded in the morning around departure time. Reasonable rates but you need to reserve early. 1 hour drive to Acadia National park and Bar Harbor
