We chanced upon this gem on our way back from the east coast. As cyclists we enjoyed the 12 miles of paved waterfront trail that could be accessed from the campground. We camped in the full service area because we were told that it had a better view of Lake Champlain...it did not! We should have taken the electric/water sites in the wooded area. Bathrooms were clean and the 50 cent showers were hot. It was first day of University check-in and the park was full of young people enjoying the beach. We wondered about the noise level and security, but at 900 pm, the beaches were deserted and the park ( a city park ) was very quiet. The view of the Adirondack Mountains across the lake was spectacular! There is no quick way to access the park- you must drive right through the city of Burlington from the interstate and take some side streets, but the park is quite easy to find. Burlington is a neat city and we will return for a longer stay next time when we can take the ferry to Adirondack Park via Plattsburg.
Convenient to Acadia NP. Shuttle bus on site on half hour. Lobster pound across road with good prices, free delivery. Office staff very helpful. Restrooms constantly monitored and kept clean. WiFi worked well in area around office. On the downside, the sites for smaller trailers like ours were close to each other and the neighbor's fire pit was almost under our window...not a lot of privacy! Big laundry with new machines. Beach was a few hundred yards away down a very steep hill! Overall a good stay from which to tour the Bar Harbour area.
Beautiful view of tidal river. We canoed at high tide. Grounds very well kept. Enjoyed the free daily paper. Bathroom showers are coin-op. Older restroom facilities, hot water slow (very!) to arrive in ladies' shower. Exceptionally helpful and friendly staff...Ann, one of the owners was always available and offered great advice on touring the area. Nearby airport busy in daytime but quiet at night. Half an hour's drive to Freeport and LL Bean.
