Cost: Free

About

OVERVIEW Blackwoods campsites are reservable up to 2 months in advance. Group campsites will remain closed during the 2021 season. There are no first-come, first-serve sites. All campsites are by reservation only.  Blackwoods Campground is located in breathtaking Acadia National Park on the Maine coast. Visitors venture to Acadia for its picturesque scenery, historic sites and recreational activities, including hiking, biking and canoeing. RECREATION From gentle walks along the rugged coastline, mountain hikes, tree lined carriage roads for biking and lakes for kayaking and canoeing, Acadia offers many opportunities to get outside and be active. Park rangers at Acadia offer a variety of programs to suit every interest and activity level. Programs include walks, talks, hikes, narrated boat cruises, bike rides and more. Visitors enjoy viewing the Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse, Cadillac Mountain, Isle au Haut and the Sieur de Monts Spring Area. A 27-mile, historic loop road system offers outstanding views of the park's ocean shoreline, coastal forests and mountain silhouettes. FACILITIES The majority of Blackwoods' sites are for small and large tents; other sites can accommodate travelers with RVs. Flush toilets, running water, and a dump station are provided, as are picnic tables and fire rings. Roads are paved. Acadia's Island Explorer shuttle buses provide free service between park destinations, local communities and the Bar Harbor-Hancock County Regional Airport. Regularly scheduled buses stop at campgrounds, carriage road entrances and many trailheads. Shuttle service is available from late June to mid-October. *** There are no showers in the campground. Fee shower facilities are located 1/2 mile from the campground.*** NATURAL FEATURES Acadia is comprised of a cluster of islands on the Atlantic coast of Maine. Mountains, lakes, streams, wetlands, forests, meadows and beaches are all found within roughly 45,000 acres comprising Acadia. At Blackwoods, all sites are wooded and within a 10-minute walk of the ocean. NEARBY ATTRACTIONS Acadia National Park is surrounded by scenic island harbors and quaint towns. Bar Harbor is less than 15 minutes away, with restaurants, shops, museums, music festivals and whale-watching tours. Beautiful Lamoine State Park is just 21 miles from Acadia, with boating, fishing and scenic views of Frenchman's Bay. The Maine Coastal Islands National Wildlife Refuge is 50 miles from the campground, and is home to a nesting habitat for diverse seabird and wading bird populations, as well as bald eagles.
