We didn't camp but here's a little info for tenters:

There are only two campgrounds in the Mt Desert Isle portion of the park - Blackwoods and Seawall. They have restrooms but no hookups or showers and are mostly for tents, although they can handle a few popups and smaller RVs. Campfires are allowed but no wood-gathering - bring your own or buy some from the commercial campgrounds along Rt. 3. The campgrounds are forested (not on the water), each campsite holds a maximum of 6 people, and mandatory quiet hours are from 10 PM - 6AM. Each has an amphitheater for summer ranger programs.

Blackwoods, the more popular of the two, has 300 campsites ($20 per site) and reservations are HIGHLY recommended during peak season (see below for phone and website reservations). Seawall ($20 per site) is first-come, first served. The Acadia section of Isle au Haut has a few primitive lean-tos for overnighters. See the park website for more complete info.

Those wanting a few more creature comforts should check out one of the other commerical campgrounds in the area, such as Mt Desert Campground (207-244-3710, www.mountdesertcampground.com) and White Birches (207-244-3797, www.mainecamper.com).
