Campground Review: Narrows Too Camping Resort
Narrows Too Camping Resort has won the award for our longest stay at a campground so far at 162 days. We ended up at Narrows Too Camping Resort as it was the campground recommended to us by our employer for our workamping job in Bar Harbor, ME. Our campsite was in the Narrows II section (Sites in the 100s and 200s) which were much closer to the road and reserved mainly for Workampers who would be there for the whole season. These sites were really close together, while some of the other sites have a bit more room. However as a warning, some of the waterfront sites are really close together (Sites in the 400s). There was road noise as well as airplane traffic overhead as the Bar Harbor Airport was right next door. While many people thought of this as a disadvantage, we actually enjoyed watching all the private jets and small commercial planes fly over. The campground has several different levels/price ranges for sites including some very nice waterfront sites.
Nearly all of the sites Narrows Too Camping Resort are long, level gravel sites. Uniquely many of the sites are pull-in sites, which means even with a 5th wheel or travel trailer, you pull-in to the site. This means you have to figure out how to get your truck out from the front of the site. It takes some thought and planning, but it works.
The campground is located just before the bridge that takes you to Mount Desert Island, Acadia National Park, and Bar Harbor. The pool was heated, but under repair much of the time we were there. There is a kayak launch at the water which is most conveniently accessible at high tide. One of the major perks of this campground is that it is a stop for the Island Explorer shuttle that takes you to the Village Green in downtown Bar Harbor where you can catch other shuttle lines that take you all over the island. Even better, this service is completely FREE! There are several traditional lobster pounds nearby in Trenton, including the most popular Trenton Bridge Lobster Pound. We would most definitely stay at Narrows Too Camping Resort again when our travels take us back to Maine.
