12 Best Family Glamping Spots: Acadia National Park

National Parks Mom

Acadia National Park is the perfect blend of land and sea. Spruce and tall pine trees cover Northern Maine’s rugged landscape on Mount Desert Island which is completely surrounded by the wild Atlantic Ocean.

Both moose and whales call this national park home. No wonder it’s one of the top five most-visited national parks in the United States!

Under Canvas Acadia

Surrounded by a dense wooded area and sitting on 100 acres of waterfront property, Under Canvas Acadia has exactly everything you want in a glamping Acadia National Park experience.



Kampgrounds of America (KOA) is well known for its fully-equipped RV parks, but that’s something COO Whitney Scott is hoping to change. It also offers deluxe (with bathrooms), as well as rustic cabins.


Bass Harbor Campground

This site is primarily a campground for tents and RVs that also offers three yurts and seven cabins. The key selling point of Bass Harbor Campground is that you can snag a parking spot right by your yurt or cabin, and it offers plenty of space for large families.


Quietside Campground & Cabins

Quietside Campground & Cabins is mostly a tent campsite but they also have nine cabins, one two-story cabin, and three hobbit-style cabins (though the hobbit-style units only sleep 2) in this wooded, secluded site.


Smuggler’s Den Campground

The log cabins at Smuggler’s Den Campground will remind you of the best time you had on vacations you used to take when you were a kid. There’s an ice box by the main office and tall pine trees surrounding the entire site.


Acadia Cottages

While this site might be called Acadia Cottages, these 15 glamping spots are more like tiny homes. They are compact, purpose-built houses with a small porch and a cozy interior.
