Acadia National Park Campgrounds

Camping is a great way to experience Acadia National Park. Acadia offers two campgrounds on Mount Desert Island, one campground on the Schoodic Peninsula, and five lean-to shelters on Isle au Haut.

All campsite reservations must be made in advance on the park's campground pages below or at Recreation.gov. There are no same day reservations and no campsites are available for request upon arrival.

All campsites must be reserved in advance within a 60-day rolling window.

  • Reservations at Blackwoods Campground go on sale March 6 for sites that become available starting on May 6.

  • Reservations at Schoodic Woods and Seawall campgrounds go on sale March 25 for sites that become available starting on May 25.

Online Reservation Tips:

  • You will need to make an account before you can reserve your campsite.
  • Reservations are available two months in advance.
  • If you're not able to reserve a particular campsite, it might not be available, or you may be checking dates ahead of the 60-day rolling window.


There is no backcountry camping, "out-of-bounds" camping, or overnight parking allowed anywhere in Acadia. There are many types of accommodations in nearby towns.

Firewood brought in from other areas may contain non-native insect species that pose a serious threat to park resources. Quarantines have been issued for some areas. Please leave your firewood at home. Firewood is available locally.
