This campground is fantastic !!! Best place in Bar Harbor in my opinion. You just can't show up once, get a site you don't like and write a bad review. That's not right. Been camping there for 5 years. Sure we had the odd site we didn't like but looked around and picked a better one for the next time.
Signed up for a one week stay the last week of June. We were impressed at how well-staffed the facility was with friendly and competent staff. We were escorted to our site by a gent with a golf cart who helped us back in. We loved site B2- trees, long, level gravel area, fire ring and picnic table. The 30 amp and water worked well. Bathroom and showers were clean. Remember to bring two quarters for the shower. While we were enjoying our week in Acadia, my 81 year old father, who was camping in the site next to us fell ill and had to be hospitalized in Ellsworth. He was seriously ill and hospitalization lasted beyond the time we had reserved at Hadley point. I didn't know what we would do, since I knew the subsequent week was peak for this area and all sites were likely reserved and all hotels were booked. The people in the Hadley Point office were so kind and compassionate. They said not to worry, they would put us in a site that just had a cancellation. Their staff actually moved my fathers camper for us. When I went in to the office to thank them and pay for the extra night. The owner would not take my money. She said we'd been through enough already. I was so touched. It was a challenging week for our family but I will always remember the thoughtfulness of the kind staff and owners at Hadley Point as one of the highlights of our trip to Maine.
its a terrible site because the electric and water hook-up are on the wrong side. We had to use two hoses to reach the water connection, and the electric only reached because we were able to back-up our trailer between the trees. There are two trees on the site that almost make it impossible to back-in. Even when we did, we were not able to open our awning because one of the trees wouldn't allow it. There were also lots of mosquitos.The 'honey wagon' service was good and reliable. The staff was friendly and helpful.
