OverviewSeawall 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
