Description:  Reviewed earlier here.  Gravel roads and sites with FHU (50A) near Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park.  We were on site 854 next to Bill and Nancy.  Dan, Tricia, Doug, Darlene, David and Sharon were right across the road.  Peg, Michelle, Rick and Gail all showed up later and stayed elsewhere in the park.  Near the county airport and road so there is a bit of traffic noise but definitely big rig friendly.

Trash and Recycle: Dumpsters and recycle at several places throughout the park. They want the returnable plastics,bottles and cans separate.

Activities:  We really love it here!  Maine is a great place to escape the Summer heat.  I love exploring the hiking trails with lots of friends and we had a nice site to relax at near some bushes.  On our way here we stopped at Holden Family RV Service to have them look at the air conditioner.  They were going to order a capacitor and a fan motor but it would take too long for the parts to arrive.  Dan and Gin got on the roof and traded parts with one of our other units and realized that the fan motor needed to be replaced.  She ordered one from PPL for $200 and Dan installed it.  Much cheaper than $1300 for a replacement by Camping World.  We didn’t do nearly as much sightseeing this time around since we had enjoyed so much of it a couple of years ago.  I did manage to do quite a bit of hiking and we biked the loop on Schoodic Peninsula stopping for lunch and wave watching on the Point.  We enjoyed several campfires and a few community meals thanks to Dan’s meat smoking talents.  Of course, no visit is complete without picking blueberries (thanks for the pie Tricia!).  I could just about stay here the whole summer! (Photos by everyone… over 2100 to chose from!)
