Camping is a Perfect Family Vacation

Greg A. Hartford, photographer, author, publisherIf you have never experienced this side of Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island, definitely give this a try. The Seawall campground is a highly desired campground by those in-the-know and frequent visitors. Perhaps you have heard of the expression “Life on the Quiet Side.” This is the area which reflects that lifestyle which includes places like Seawall, Bass Harbor, the Bass Harbor Head Light, Bernard, Seal Cove, and Southwest Harbor. Consider at least a 3 day stay here and take advantage of the nearby hiking trails. This is a wonderful spot for a campsite. Be sure to check out the many other options on and off Mount Desert Island as well. They are all very good.
