What's the best way to stay dry while camping?

So we're going (car) camping in Acadia National Park in little less than a month, and as I sit here and type, it is pouring outside.
I know about digging a trench around your tent and laying down a tarp, but often that just seems to end up with water pooled in the tarp.
Recommendations for the best camp setup to avoid waking up to floating in our sleeping bags, and general rainy weather gear (including things to look for in tents besides the obvious rain-cover) would be greatly appreciated!
(Especially because my wife is a city girl, and if we end up miserable on her first time out, we may never camp again!)
I've looked at the previous camping threads, but didn't find a lot specific to dealing with inclement whether - but boy did they have a lot of good ideas for updating my years old gear!
