TravelPod Member ReviewsNarrows Too Camping Resort Trenton
The central reservation center for this national chain of campgrounds bungled my reservation by placing my 5th wheel RV in a "Pull In" site rather than a "Pull Through" site. The agent making the booking clearly was not properly trained or familiar with different RV equipment and the related campsite options. Luckily, the on-site staff immediately caught the error when they received the booking at their end. Thank goodness and kudos to them for immediately contacting me and placing me in a better site.
Upon check-in, I was informed that there is a daily "Resort Fee". This turned out to be hilarious! There are no amenities at this park coming even close to "Resort" status. In fact, in over 2 years of full-time RVing around the country, I have not run into any RV park - many of them very upscale - that charge a separate "resort fee". The manager of the park claims this pays for the pool (quite small), the bus stop for Acadia National Park (uh?), music (never had a performance the two weeks I was there), ice cream social (again, never saw this happen) and the WiFi (which was frequently no working and when it worked was very slow).
Setting aside the silly resort fee debate, my largest complaint with this campsite is that the amenities and condition of the resort does not meet the expectations of the higher than average fees that they charge.
The roads are dusty and despite the advertised low speed limits, people zip around easily kicking up dust that gets on the vehicles, tables, inside the campers, etc. They really need to put down some gravel or even better yet pave their roads.
The hot water at the inadequately equipped laundry room did not work for 1 week of the 2 weeks we stayed at the park. The restroom/shower facilities were subpar and I just didn't even want to use them.
On a positive note, there are some nice sites with good views of the water and mountains. However, I recommend you contact the park directly to get the site you want since the central reservation system and staff do not seem to really understand which sites are available and offer the best placement for your stay.

Today, we packed up the trailer and went to the Acadia National Park Visitors Center. It was pretty cool, they allowed us to park the trailer in the huge parking lot while we toured the park. Why? It was too early to check-in at the campground we were scheduled for that night, AND they had a designated area for RV and trailer parking. We were …
We parked our RV just north of Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park at the "Narrows Too RV Resort" in Trenton, Maine. We are parked at the top of a hill just a short walk down to the Mt. Desert Narrow Bay. The mountain in the distance puts the finishing touch on the amazing Maine viewscape from our RV's perch
This RV park was not our first …
... of your damn business!!!
Deborah's restaurant review:
First night we were there our host recommended a restaurant called Café This Way located on Mount Desert Street (actually tucked away in an alley off the street)… while it came with high praise we did not enjoy our dining experience. Considering the price, the food was not up to snuff (at least ours). We ordered The Littlebits as an appetizer and were expecting great things – we were let down, ...
We had a late start today and left Belfast headed for Bar Harbor. Our first stop was Fort Knox. We walked all over the place and went through the tunnels. It was ok, Rob is more interested in history than I am but I did get more interested when he was snapping pictures like crazy looking for ghosts:) Oddly enough we do have a series of pictures taken in a series in ...
