Staying at the Wonderland Campsite

January 17, 2019by Thomas Tash

One of the most popular campsites at Acadia East Campground is the Wonderland Campsite. This centrally located camping spot was the first site established at Acadia East. The site itself is ideal for small families to larger groups of up to 6 campers.

Please note: The Wonderland Campsite at Acadia East Campground is named after the Wonderland Trail on the southwest side of Acadia National Park and Mount Desert Island. This campsite is NOT located at or near the Wonderland Trail. There are NO campsites located at the Wonderland Trail in the park.

Wonderland Campsite at Acadia East Campground

Once you arrive at Acadia East Campground at 574 U.S. Route 1 in Gouldsboro, guests staying at the Wonderland site will fine their assigned parking space. From the main parking area, these guests will head about 150 feet up the main campground trail to the site, which is located to the right of the trail. A hand-carved cedar sign marks the site and welcomes guests.

This spacious site is surrounded by ground that loops around 3/4 of the site. This creates a whimsical setting as campfire light is warmly reflected back at night, and as morning sunlight fills the area. While it only runs in the early part of the season, a small brook and waterfall provide the eastern boundary to the site.

Ideal for families, the Wonderland campsite is located adjacent to the restroom building. Being a central site, Wonderland is easy to access from the parking area, while providing enough distance to be private.

The campsite is surrounded on all sides by tall cedar trees, many campers find that these are perfectly spaced for hammocks.

The Wonderland Campsite has a 6 foot picnic table, along with a stone campfire pit and a filled 5-gallon bucket of campfire dousing water. As is marked on the buckets, the water is not for drinking. Campers are asked to bring their own drinking water as well as for their dogs should they bring one.
