Go to RVParkreviews.com, search the area for options.

Once they are open for reservations for out of state residents (Maine campgrounds have been closed to them due to COVID-19, although there is a current lawsuit regarding this), get a reservation. Maine has an extremely short camping season, this year especially, and July and August are the most popular months. You will need to book ahead.

One option, when you get to the Harrisburg PA area stay on I-81 until you get to Scranton PA. Then take I-84 east into New England and pick up I-95.
It's a little farther but, you bypass NYC.

Stayed at Bar Harbor campground a few years ago. They dont take advanced reservations, so while you are taking a bit of a risk, also means it cant be sold out ahead of time and you have as good of a shot as everyone else. Being a procrastinator this was great for us! Also depends when you get there. We got there on a Sunday and had plenty of sites. They told me arriving Saturday might have been a bit tougher. Give them a call and they will help make suggestions. Campground was decent. Huge blueberry bush field if you're there at the right time. Real close to Acadia

I loved staying at Bar Harbor Campground. I believe we stayed there for 16 days. They don't take reservations! First come, first serve. They also don't take credit cards. Cash or checks only.
Best part of staying was we had lobster delivered to our site 7 times. Believe it was $34.95 for 2 lobsters, 2 ears of corn and a pound of mussels. I believe this was in 2015 0r 16.

Do watch the quarantine rules for Maine as they unfold. Right now, parks are closed to out of state campers. Once they open to out of state campers, those campers must quarantine in their RVs for 14 days. That means no shopping (not even for groceries), no dining out, not even take out. You must stay at your unit for 14 days. You may receive delivery of food.

There has been no date announced for the lifting of the mandatory 14 day quarantine. It is the subject of a lawsuit, but a federal judge just recently upheld the current Maine quarantine rule.

Have not stayed there, but have reservations for later part of September. Hadleys Point Campground seemed to fit the bill for me while looking for a place to stay. Here is a link for them talking about covid 19 etc.

We've been staying at Narrows Too for the last 11 yrs. FHU, easy access to Acadia and Bar harbor. Will be heading up there in 2 weeks... I hope they get the out of state quarantine issue resolved by then.
The below items is from Bayley's CG, which is participating in the lawsuit

COVID-19 UPDATE AS OF MAY 31ST, 2020
A NEW EXECUTIVE ORDER PERMITS HOSPITALITY BUSINESSES TO BEGIN TAKING RESERVATIONS JUNE 1 BOOKING WITH NON-RESIDENTS ASKED TO QUARANTINE FOR 14 DAYS ON THE HONOR SYSTEM.

This was the headline May 14, 2020 in the Portland Press Herald. Governor Mill’s Economic and Community Development Commissioner, Heather Johnson, in charge of implementing the Governor’s Order stated “Visitors from outside of Maine are still being asked to quarantine for 14 days after getting here, but she said the state had no enforcement protocol for the quarantine requirement.

Since the the so-called honor system was announced, Bayley’s Camping Resort challenged the constitutionality of the discriminatory limitation on our out of state friends. The court stated;

“Although the quarantine rule purports a certain neutrality insofar As it imposes a restriction on all who enter the state, including state residents, it effectively discriminates among members of the public in practical application because it grants or denies access to Maine’s goods and services based on citizenship status and access to reality, without regard to the presence or absence of circumstances that would justify imposition of circumstances that would justify imposition of such a burden on a person when considered as an individual.”

The court concluded “The Campgrounds Advance a civil rights action that has potential.” The United States Department of Justice filed a brief in support of the Campgrounds asserting the quarantine requirement discriminates against out of state travelers and violates the constitutional right to travel.

WE ARE OPEN TO ALL OF OUR OUT OF STATE CAMPERS AND WE ARE PRESSING FORWARD CHALLENGING THE UNCONSTITUTIONAL AND DISCRIMINATORY SELF-QUARANTINE “HONOR SYSTEM.”
