Question Recommend campgrounds around Acadia National Park

We are planning a trip to Maine in mid-May-we are looking at staying near the Narrows 2 at Acadia and Mt. View at Sullivan-has anyone traveled to Maine and have any recommendations for campgrounds that will accomodate our 28' Safari-we do not want to line up one on top of another as is the custom at some campgrounds-also looking for full hookups if possible-any info would be appreciated!

Our son and we have stayed at White Birches Campground in Southwest Harbor (two separate trips). They recommended it to us, and I'd recommend it to anyone else. It's located on the western side of the island, and therefore a nice quiet campground. They take reservations and have some full hookup sites. They can accommodate your trailer, no problem. Lots of space between the campsites, and some are tucked into the woods. I found this write-up on them:

We also drove through the national park campground at the tip of the park (can't remember the name now) just to see what the campsites were like, and were very pleasantly surprised at the size of them. There were several larger motorhomes and trailers in some of the sites and they fit in well. No hookups in the national park campground, though, but definitely cheaper.
It's a beautiful area, just like I always imagined coastal Maine to be. The whale watching tour we took was definitely worth it, but they're pricey ($80 apiece or something like that).
We took a tower tour, too,on a bridge on our way up the coast by Verona at Fort Knox historic site, I think,and it was quite interesting (and high!). It had just been completed and opened for tours. You can see it from quite a ways away coming up the coast.
All in all, it's a trip we will take again if we get the opportunity. We spent 5 days there and could easily have stayed another week. That's unusual, coming from us. We like to roam! (too bad we have to work!)

If you need the full hook-ups, the KOA is in a great location. The NPS shuttle bus stops there too so you don't need a car to go into Bar Harbor or to any of the park attractions, hiking, biking, carriage rides, etc.

The KOA in Bar Harbor is a nice camp. By the way, the locals call it; "Baww Haubaa."
