We really enjoyed our two weeks here. Even though we had many inches of rain, our site held up and drained quickly. We were in one of the very long pull-through sites. All utilities were good, Wi-Fi was great, DirecTV was no problem, staff was great and lots of friendly people. Close enough to Acadia. Only down side was very expensive laundry and lots of machines not working. The price was high but I guess you pay for the location. We camped at Timberland Acres RV Park in a Motorhome.

Staff very friendly, but with a park this big they should escort you to your site. Most of the pull-throughs are incredibly long. Several would accommodate 2 RVs plus toads. This is actually two parks. One in front that is heavily treed and then the field for others that has virtually no shade or vegetation. Treed sites are almost all filled with seasonal renters who are not very friendly. Close enough to Bar Harbor, shopping and good restaurants. The pull-through sites could stand some work. We were here 3 weeks and it rained almost very day or night. The ground got soggy, but manageable. Good water pressure, electric service never let us down and Wi-Fi was very good. All in all a decent place. Not sure if we would stay here again or look elsewhere when we return. Would not recommend if you are not self contained since bath house is a long hike and laundry room is likewise a long hike. We camped at Timberland Acres RV Park in a Motorhome.

Welcome was friendly and helpful. Pull through sites are in a new section which is far from showers and restrooms, so plan on being self-contained. Our site was not level. Utilities were well designed and worked well. There was no cable TV and we could not get Dish. Laundry was large but could use updating and cleaning. It is also expensive: $2.50 to wash, and $2.50 to dry. There are lots of seasonal, permanent residents, in older 173 sites, not all neat. Good location for visiting Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor. For the price I might look at another park. We camped at Timberland Acres RV Park in a Motorhome.

When you pull to register, enter the large parking lot before the campground sign. If you enter the road by the sign, you'll have to walk back up to the office. Personnel very friendly and helpful. Park seems to be in two sections, a wooded section with quite a few permanent residents, and a back open field area mostly for transients. We stayed in the back section for 3 nights. The pull through sites are very long, 40 or 50 yards, and wide enough for comfortable camping. We were able to get rooftop satellite TV. Location is ideal for driving into Bar Harbor or Acadia Nat'l Park. A few strict and perhaps questionable rules: 5 mph speed limit with a sign saying, "Clint..." will follow you to your site; extra charges if you use heaters or air conditioners. However, aside from Clint, I don't see how these rules can be enforced. We didn't have an issue, mainly because we didn't need heaters or air conditioning. Bottom line, we don't know if these are issues or not, but be aware. We will definitely stay here again. We camped at Timberland Acres RV Park in a Motorhome.

The folks there were very friendly and helpful with information in the area. One lady was the best! I even got a 20% discount for being a veteran. I thank them/her for that. I recommend this park. We camped at Timberland Acres RV Park in a Motorhome.

This park is about 20 minutes from Acadia National Park. Rate reflects the early season rate. If you want to visit this gem of a national park, do it during mid May. Access to the RV park is very good. Interior roads are paved. Sites are gravel; and some in the lower parts of the park can be soft after a good rain. Wi-Fi was good. Water pressure was good. The 5 or 6 cross roads on the upper levels are seasonal sites. All the seasonal sites were neat except for a few on roads 1 & 2. All the daily sites are pull-throughs and are a little narrow, but so long you can pull in so you don't see your neighbor. Staff was friendly and gave us lots of great info on the national park & the area. You really cannot walk your dogs in the surrounding forest due to the thickness of the trees and bogs. Don't know why there is no off leash area for dogs since there is a perfect spot for one at the far end of the park. The seasonal sites are shaded, but the others are not. We camped at Timberland Acres RV Park in a Motorhome.

Would echo the previous post. We stayed at the short term sites. The pull-throughs are at least 100 feet long and in the open, with hookups in the center. Plenty of room between campers so you certainly are not crowded. Wi-Fi was not really fast, but was usable. Would have rated higher but the 2.50 laundry and absent cable. Very close to Acadia and Elsworth groceries/Wal-Mart. Would stay again. We camped at Timberland Acres RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This older park is clean and well kept. We found it a perfect place to stay while visiting Acadia NP and Bar Harbor. The staff was very helpful and friendly. They recommended a local lobster pound that was terrific. Another staff member came back that evening on their own time to bring us wild blueberries. We would stay here again.

Please understand that my assignment of a "10" is reserved for those campgrounds such as the newer Outdoor Resorts, Cane Creek, or Bluewater Key. We used this location as a mid-way point for Bar Harbor & surrounding areas. The site was huge, clean, and well graveled. The roads were paved and wide enough for our 40 ft. coach & toad. The staff was extremely helpful for this Floridian couple who had never been to Maine. They have a nice playground for kids. We did not use wi-fi, but found our Verizon cell phones working extremely well. We would stay here again if we ever get back this way. We camped at Timberland Acres RV Park in a Motorhome.

Finally we found a park with secure wifi. However, when we tried to use the wifi to get to the Internet we found the connection was practically worthless. There is so little bandwidth that almost nothing can be done. The connection logged off every 30 seconds to one minute, then logged back on. This wife connection is absolutely horrible. We don't understand why camp owners would install a wifi system then not purchase enough bandwidth to make it usable. Speed would consistently lower to 5.5 mbps and continually disconnect then reconnect. The system is so slow you could cook dinner waiting for the next web page to open. And, before the owners complain about this review - no we were not trying to download large files, no we were not streaming video. We were simply trying to open small (less that 10k) emails. Again we cannot say enough bad things about this Internet connection. Laundry - very spacious room, 9 washers and 9 dryers, however the cost was $2.50 per machine per load. Far too expensive. We would not stay here again. There are several other nice parks in this area and we would stay with one of them. Park owners - more and more of us have the need to connect to the Internet, to pay bills, to conduct Internet banking, to access email. Please install adequate systems to allow these activities. The system you have now is completely unacceptable. We camped at Timberland Acres RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate is for a month. We loved this park. Everybody was very friendly, the staff went out of their way to help and it was conveniently located close to Acadia NP and all the wonderful sites near there without the cost of the parks on the edge of the NP. We would love to return some day. We camped at Timberland Acres RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a large RV Park but its location near Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park makes its location excellent. It has the longest pull throughs that I have ever seen--most about 200 feet long. Lots of room between sites. Wi-Fi was up and down but did work sufficiently to get along. We would stay there again. Good restaurants nearby and the staff was very friendly and helpful. They had great information on how to see Acadia NP and the local area. We camped at Timberland Acres RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a beautiful campground with easy access to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. Staff was very friendly and helpful with sightseeing suggestions and tips. The big motorhome sites are extremely long pull throughs. We would have rated this campground a 10 if the site was more level and paved. We camped at Timberland Acres RV Park in a Motorhome.
