Description

It's a storage facility and a shop for my construction business. Generally quite. A summer weekly rental nearby that we try to be respectful to. It's not glamorous but safe and a great location to base an exploration of Mount Desert Island. We can supply 50 amp power but would have to be there to open the shop door to get to our welder plug. A 30 amp is right next to the parking site. It's 30 amp but a 15amp shape receptacle. We have an an adapter if you need one. Water and sewer available. We are experiencing a bit of a drought so you would be sharing water from a well to a rental next door. We ask you be gentle on water use till we get another rain (8/16/20). Currently you'd be parking next to an old fire truck, sorry. Dogs welcome if they stay on the area. Need a day or two notice to make sure we haven't parked company trucks in the way. We typically don't meet there in the morning but I usually show up at some point to tinker

House Rules

No generator after 9pm. or before 7 am. Fires with permission only (Town is picky). If your dog barks in your absence don't leave him/her alone. Take food trash with you. We have a dumpster you can use for non food items but food attracts animals. Call or text ahead so we no when and how long you're staying. Probably a week limit without further discussion. This is new to us. We just want to share and not be a pest to others. Just be reasonable respectful and things should be great.

Access Road Conditions

We have a 29' towable and can drive through but its tight. We have an alleyway to turn around in. Full size semi trucks can clear it and get turned around. The property is gravel.

Tow Vehicle Parking Details

This shop is located at a storage facility I own. Plenty of parking. Not a fancy destination by any means but prime Mount Desert Island location

Wished we stayed longer,

Our stay was wonderful, but short. We had planned to stay two nights, but the weather was changing with high winds expected, so we headed inland. Great spot to park our RV and our host was quick to arrive to show us all the hook ups. Highly recommend this spot to explore Mt. Desert Island!

All You Need on Mount Desert Island

MDI is one of the most popular areas on the East Coast.
This host's location is very easy to get to and is a safe haven within twenty-five minutes to the downtowns of both Bar Harbor and Southwest Harbor.
Our host happened to be there to greet us, he help us park and point out full hookups. We had a couple great conversations with MrTucker, an all round nice guy that is very busy and unbelievably talented!
We had perfect weather for hiking and were grateful for the time and location that afforded the opportunity to tour the area more than we ever have in the past. We hope MrTucker will accept our next request to stay sometime in the future!

Lovely night’s sleep

We were greeted upon our arrival and offered electrical and water hookup, as well as dump station - none of which we needed.
After dark, the road noise was minimal and we slept well.
Thank you for a great night’s sleep in a safe location!

Great hub to visit Acadia!

Great location and truly a pleasant surprise. Enjoyed visiting Acadia and the surrounding area. It is centrally located and easy to find and also included hookups. The brewery and BBQ place just down the street was delicious. Thanks so much for your hospitality.

Great no hassle site on MDI

Mr. Tucker again allowed us to stay at the best Boondocking site on MDI. Although the site is close to Bar Harbor, one can hear little road noise. The hosts certainly respect your primacy. Would stay here every week if we could.

Great spot in Bar Harbor

Nice little corner, not too far from downtown and Acadia. Full hookups, which was fantastic. Good communication and instructions. Thank you!

Great place to see Acadia National Park

We really appreciated this little space for checking out the national park. MrTucker1050 was kind enough to send us videos on where to park and where the sewer and electricity are located, and he provided an adapter for the electricity The space was quiet and secluded at night, and the weather was awesome.

The only downside about the spot was it was a little rough turning off the road, as the street was recently paved and the roadworkers left a big drop off. Just go slow when you are turning in or out of the location, otherwise, your cabinets will be a mess :)

Wonderful Location and Wonderful Host!

Thanks so very much for an awesome location to spend day-tripping through Bar Harbor. All the hookups were a welcomed bonus, never expected, but really appreciated! Our host came by each morning, although we missed him once because we weren't up yet. We hope he knows how very appreciative we are and hope to be back someday. Love ❤️ Boondockers Welcome!
Best, D&J

Great Place for Visiting Bar Harbor!

Perfect spot for all Mount Desert Island has to offer. Easy to find, within a few miles from the entrance to the island. Found all the hookups available, electric, water and a dump point. Our wonderful host was very accommodating. He saw to everything including WiFi if we needed it. It certainly met our needs. If you need any info on the island, he's the guy! Looking forward to staying here for a few more days!

Great parking spot near the national park

We have a self-contained rig, solar, no grey or black water. It was very nice that our host offered an electrical hookup and a place to dump tanks. Although our host couldn’t be at the site to greet us, he sent a video describing where to park. Wow. The parking spot was quiet..
