Mount Desert Campground Reservations

We are closed for the 2019 season.

Office hours and online reservations will resume January 2020.

We hope to hear from you then!

 

If you plan to camp with us for 7 nights or more, you will have the opportunity to reserve starting on Friday, January 10, 2020 after 5 am.

Reservations for 3 nights or more will be accepted starting on Monday, January 13, 2020 after 5 am.

 Two-night reservations will only be accepted if there is a two-night gap between other reservations on our grid.
 
Please note that we accept reservations a year in advance from customers who camp on the same site for at least a week every year.  So . . .

 . . . when reservations open in January, not all sites will be available for your preferred dates.
