Owners and staff are very friendly and helpful, they presented us with an information package for the area at check in along with 2 delicious chocolates and was extremely helpful ideas and great place to visit. It's a large park with exceptionally long sites which have a fire ring and a good condition picnic table. The roads are paved and gravel pads with a nice size area between sites, no problem levelling our unit. Wifi very good especially considering the size of the park. No cable but main channels very good on antenna. We recommend staying here and will return. We camped at Timberland Acres RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is an older RV park, but it is clean and well-maintained. Most of the shady part of the park appears to be seasonal customers. We are near where most short-termers are likely to find themselves. Much of that are generous pull-though spots out in the open.

We are finally here, after having to cancel an earlier visit when our RV wasn't ready to be on the road. The nice folks at Timberland Acres allowed us to cancel -- and without paying a cancellation penalty. So they were the first RV park we thought of when we were finally able to make the trek north to Maine. I had read reviews about the open fields, so we asked ahead of time for something shady -- and have a wonderful pull-through spot! So thank you for that, Timberland Acres!

Zero complaints so far. The two ladies who checked us in couldn't have been nicer. We're here at the end of September to see Bar Harbor & Acadia Nat. Park, so don't have a need for organized activities. A couple of pluses: the dumpsters are next to recycling stations, so kudos for that.

While other RV parks are closer to Bar Harbor and Acadia, Timberland has this going for it: It is equidistant from a Super Walmart, grocery stores, an auto parts place and other shopping, as well as assorted restaurants in Trenton. All are west of the campground. In the other direction is Trenton Bridge Lobster Pond, a great place to order those crustaceans. Reasonable prices east or west.

A suggestion for RVers coming in from I-95. You'll pass a few gas stations right after you get off the Interstate. Stop at one of them and fill up. Doesn't matter which one. They all charge the same. But the gas there will be 10 cents a gallon cheaper (for unleaded) than you'll find as you get in Trenton and Bar Harbor. We camped at Timberland Acres RV Park in a Motorhome.

The owners and staff are very friendly and helpful. You are presented with an information "pack" for the area on check in along with 2 delicious chocolates a really nice touch. It's a large park with exceptionally long sites which have a fire ring and a good condition picnic table. The roads are tarmac and gravel pads with a large area between sites. The pads could be graded a little better but we had no problem levelling our rig. Trash pick up before 10am and a good recycling area. Wifi very good especially considering the size of the park. No cable but main channels very good on antenna. We certainly recommend staying here. We camped at Timberland Acres RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Great location for Acadia National Park. Also two delightful shops close by. Maine's Own Treats for their jams and Maine-ly Maine for their delicious fudge, on tasting I went back for more.

You must ask for site #263. You could hold a small concert on the patio side and because of the huge 100 foot long sites and the fact this site is facing opposite from the one next, your neighbor is way far away. They need another restroom on the bottom of the park, long walk to the restroom in the upper area.
Restrooms were fine. Transients are mostly located in the bottom area in a wide open meadow with no shade but great satellite reception. Cell coverage spotty. WiFi was very good. Sites were level and gravel. Easy check in and wide roads. Small but nice pool. Friendly helpful staff. Would stay again. We camped at Timberland Acres RV Park in a Motorhome.

Easy for a big rig to get around and long pull through. No cable and limited local stations. Pull through has good satellite pick up. Water pressure just ok. We camped at Timberland Acres RV Park in a Motorhome.

This RV park is about a half-hour from Arcadia NP and Bar Harbor. We were placed way back in the park - basically a huge open field where RV spots were laid out. Very busy place - lots of "long termers" as well as rigs coming and going. One of the few RV parks we've been in that would let me wash our rig and car (albeit for a $10 fee). WiFi is so-so, there was no cable TV, and over-the-air stations were sparse (about 4). Front office gave us a huge amount of brochures pertaining to local attractions. We camped at Timberland Acres RV Park in a Motorhome.

Arcadia NP and Bar Harbor are must-sees. A modern Walmart is just up the road. Be aware that the main road running in front of the park is extremely busy - you can wait several minutes before a spot opens to jut out into traffic.

This campground is conveniently located on State Highway 3, approximately 14 miles from Bar Harbor/Acadia National Park and 2 miles from Ellsworth. Entrance to park is large for easy in/out access. Check-In was easy and the ladies manning the desk were extremely helpful and accommodating. Interior roads were a bit bumpy and in need of a repair, so take it easy when traveling in/out with your rig. The campground offers shaded areas located near the front of the park and are primarily back-in sites and closer together. Pull-through open sites, which are fairly spacious and long, are in the back of the park for large rigs/satellite users. All sites were gravel and level. We asked for an open site in order to use our satellite dish and were assigned site # 209, and later site # 225 when we decided to add an extra night. The park offers only one laundry site for the entire park, but it was extremely clean. Other amenities included shower house (we did not use, so cannot comment on condition), Wi-Fi (at Recreation Room and Pavilion), fire ring, dump station, propane filing, recycling, playground, basketball, horseshoes, and shuffleboard. Every day, from late June to early September, the park has a free daily shuttle service to the Acadia Gateway Center. You need to check with the office staff for the schedule. Visitors to your campsite will be charged a per-person visitor fee, so inquire about that if you plan on having guests over. We stayed here for 4-nights in our Class A motorhome.

Located midway between the attractions of Bar Harbor/Acadia and the stores and restaurants of Ellsworth, this CG is a good base for exploring the area. We stayed four nights in a large, level, grass pullthrough. Unfortunately there are almost no trees in the transient areas (seasonals are in the woods). We enjoyed the visit and will stay here again if we should return to this part of Maine. We camped at Timberland Acres RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a nice campground with wide paved roads and gravel sites and very large grassy areas between sites and great fire pits. There are several sites in the "upper" section with many trees, but our site was in an open field, so we had no satellite issues. Our pull through site itself was about 100' long, so unhooking was not necessary unless you wanted to. We did need to use an extender to adequately use the wifi. While we did not use the pool, it appeared a little small for the number of potential campers. The campground is very easy to access, but it is 14 miles from Acadia. We camped at Timberland Acres RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is an easy in, easy out park with huge ( long) pull thru sites. Utilities are good and we had great wifi parked near the pavilion. No cable but satellite is good since the pull thru sites are in the middle of a field. There are seasonals but most are parked in the woodsy section and everything is well kept and clean. Good Verizon signal. About 16 miles to Bar Harbor and Acadia. Shopping is just a couple miles away in Ellsworth. We stayed here 8 nights. There are other campgrounds closer to the park but for an extra 10 minute drive, this is a good place to stay that will save you a few bucks away in Ellsworth. We camped at Timberland Acres RV Park in a Motorhome.

Just 14 miles from Acadia National Park with Cadillac Mountain, Mount Desert Island and Bar Harbor. Timberland Acres is a beautiful park, top portion heavily treed. Bottom portion is a large open meadow surrounded with large trees. Staff is welcoming and friendly. Campers are very friendly. Excellent Wi-Fi. Good cell phone coverage. TV is local only and only 3 or 4 channels. We camped at Timberland Acres RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Good whale watching, walking, hiking and biking. Very active small town with lovely shops, restaurants and cafes.

Activities include game night, crafts for charity morning, music nite, morning exercise, ice cream social on Sundays.

Try lunch and or dinner at Helen's in Ellsworth just up the road. Good food and reasonable prices with super service. There is also a large Home Depot and Walmart in Ellsworth.

Economic option to expensive campgrounds on island where Acadia National Park is located. Huge lots in open field for big rigs. Good view for satellite dishes. Some sites for smaller RVs and seasonals are in forest. Very helpful office staff. Small store has some RV supplies and ice ($2 for 5# bag). No restaurants in walking distance but short drives to abundant lobster joints. We camped at Timberland Acres RV Park in a Motorhome.

Stayed here while visiting Acadia National Park. The facility is nice with large pull-through campsites for transient campers. Seasonal campers and transient camping areas are separate. Easy access to the sites and no issues with any services. I would stay here again. We camped at Timberland Acres RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Nice park with friendly people. Close to Acadia without the big price of RV parks that are nearer. Power is OK and the internet is OK. Not the best we have found but OK. Camped on a 50amp site with full hookups. Nightly, weekly and monthly sites are huge but all in the sun. Their shady sites are mostly reserved for seasonal RV's and tenters. This park is very clean and well maintained. Nice laundry facility, showers and bathrooms. They have some activities and very helpful staff. Also close to Ellsworth and good grocery stores including Walmart. We would stay here again and recommend it as a good value. We camped at Timberland Acres RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
