On this week’s episode of Campground of the Week, we are reviewing the Bar Harbor/Oceanside KOA in Bar Harbor, Maine. If you are planning on visiting Acadia National Park, make sure you check out our other resources for this area including:

The Bar Harbor/ Oceanside KOA is all about the location, and we talk about why we love the unique positioning of this campground on Mount Desert Island. It places you within 15 minutes of the Hulls Cove Visitor Center, but also allows you to easily access the quieter areas of the park.
