This just in: New RV campground opening in Winter Harbor


Park your self-contained RV in Winter Harbor and explore the Schoodic Peninsula or hop the ferry to Bar Harbor. Courtesy photo. Acadia’s Schoodic region is getting a new RV campground. Roger and Pearl Barto, who operate the Main Stay Cottages in Winter Harbor, have added a 10-site, harborfront RV park to their enterprise.

The sites can accommodate 45-foot +/- self-contained RVs. Sewer, water, 50-30-20 electric and Wifi are available. Note: Sites are not pull through, and there are no restrooms or showers available on site. The campground edges Henry’s Cove and has views to Cadillac Mountain on Mount Desert Island.

The location makes it easy to explore both the Schoodic section of Acadia National Park via car, bicycle, or Island Explorer bus service. And the passenger ferry to Bar Harbor makes it equally easy to explore the park on Mount Desert Island.



  1. “Congratulations!” to the Bartos on this terrific new enterprise, which will surely bring new people to discover and enjoy the beauty of the Schoodic Peninsula and Winter Harbor, site of the Schoodic section of Acadia National Park.

  2. That sounds great but what about us tenters? Hillary, a while back I wrote you about the closing of Oceanwood Campground in Birch Harbor. I have just found out that parts of the campground are now under conservation. Do you know anything about this and what it may mean for campers in the future? There is a map of the park posted on Saving Ocean Wood facebook page. Thanks for your time.
