Overview

Overview

Seawall Campground is located in breathtaking Acadia National Park on the western side of Mount Desert Island on the Maine Coast.

The campground is approximately 18 miles from Bar Harbor and the park loop road. Visitors venture to Acadia for its picturesque scenery, historic sites and recreational activities, including hiking, biking and canoeing.

Natural Features:

Southwest Harbor is located on the west side of Mount Desert Island. The west side of the Island is considered the "quiet side" of Mount Desert Island. All the sites at Seawall Campground are wooded and within a 10-minute walk to the ocean. There are many beautiful and quiet hiking trails on this side of the Island, as well as Echo lake, a wonderful lake for swimming, fishing, canoeing, kayaking and picnics. Acadia is comprised of a cluster of islands on the Atlantic coast of Maine. Mountains, lakes, streams, wetlands, forests, meadows and beaches are all found within roughly 45,000 acres comprising Acadia.

Recreation:

From gentle walks along the rugged coastline, mountain hikes, tree lined carriage roads for biking and lakes for kayaking and canoeing, Acadia offers many opportunities to get outside and be active.

Park rangers at Acadia offer a variety of programs to suit every interest and activity level. Programs include walks, talks, hikes, narrated boat cruises, bike rides and more. Kids age 6-12 love Acadia's Junior Ranger Program.

Visitors enjoy viewing the Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse, Cadillac Mountain, Isle au Haut and the Sieur de Monts Spring Area.

A 27-mile, historic loop road system offers outstanding views of the park's ocean shoreline, coastal forests and mountain silhouettes.

Facilities:

The majority of this family-oriented campground's sites are for small and large tents; other sites can accommodate RVs up to 35 ft. in length.

Flush toilets, running water and a dump station are provided, as are picnic tables and fire rings. Roads are paved. A picnic area is located on the shore across from the campground entrance.

Acadia's Island Explorer shuttle buses provide free service between park destinations, local communities and the Bar Harbor-Hancock County Regional Airport. Regularly scheduled buses stop at campgrounds, carriage road entrances and many trailheads. Shuttle service is available from late June to mid-October.

Fee shower facilities and camping supply stores are located 1 mile from the campground.

Nearby Attractions:

Acadia National Park is surrounded by scenic island harbors and quaint towns. Bar Harbor is less than 30 minutes away, with restaurants, shops, museums, music festivals and whale-watching tours.

Beautiful Lamoine State Park is just 21 miles from Acadia, with boating, fishing and scenic views of Frenchman's Bay.

The Maine Coastal Islands National Wildlife Refuge is 50 miles from the campground, and is home to a nesting habitat for diverse seabird and wading bird populations, as well as bald eagles.
