  • Take Beech Mtn Rd to the end, and it's a parking lot, which we didn't know. Luckily there was a space. There wasn't very good signage, not like most parks. So if you want to get to the fire tower, tak...  more »
  • Title says it all. One of my favorite hikes during our trip, and it was not at all busy either day we did the hike (yes, we did it twice, doing 2 different loops). A good challenge but not too strenuo...  more »
  • This used to be a pleasant hike, but the park has ruined it. The visitor centers send too many people over to what used to be "the quiet side" of Mount Desert Island. The trail has been degraded by so...  more »

Where to stay in Acadia National Park

A few campgrounds sit inside the boundaries of Acadia National Park. Camping is available in the park throughout the year, but most campgrounds are only open during summer. There are plenty of campgrounds around Mt. Desert Island, on which Acadia sits, and more located on the mainland within easy driving distance of the bridge to the island. For creature comforts, a lively atmosphere, and easy access to the park, look for a hotel, inn, or bed and breakfast in bustling Bar Harbor, which also has restaurants and shops. Quieter Northeast Harbor, which actually sits on the southwest corner of Mt. Desert Island, has a few quaint inns and bed and breakfasts that offer a more rustic experience than staying in Bar Harbor. If you plan to visit Acadia in summer, book your accommodation as far in advance as possible.
