The Special Philosophy of Quietside


Here at Quietside, we are different than the higher volume campgrounds. As other locations seek to squeeze in more and more campers in small treeless spaces, we've been quietly reducing our site numbers to increase the solitude and your ability to enjoy Mount Desert Island, Acadia National Park and the authentic fishing villages that surround us. With no pre-planned evening activities or loud events on site, our guests interact naturally and authentically, as much or as little as they wish with our family and the other campground visitors.


Often becoming a family tradition, we have guests that come back year after year, generation after generation to camp with us. This family run campground's host Susan has limited office hours daily. All services and cleaning of bathhouses etc. are conducted by your host, daily if necessary.
