MDI in October
We had a great stay at Smuggler's Den, Southwest Harbor in October 2016. Weather was great, autumn colors were phenomenal. Staying in this location put us central to Mount Desert Island activities and Acadia National Park. Food market just a short distance away. Staff were pleasant and very helpful (especially Todd). Laundry facilities were clean and convenient. Campground is very well maintained. We loved Cafe Drydock & Inn in Southwest Harbor - it was very relaxing and cozy with great food. Wednesday nights they have live entertainment in season - we had a great time during the season's last performance. Campground is close to Seawall picnic area, Thurston's Lobster Pound in Bernard, Bass Harbor Headlight, and many hiking trails. We could see our camper on Site 90 from the Fire Tower on Beech Mountain. We would recommend this campground to others and plan to come again.
