  • We did 4 hikes while in Acadia National Park - Beech Mountain was probably our favorite. We did the full loop - went up the shorter route (0.4 miles) and came down the longer (0.7). Shorter route is p...  more »
  • We were lucky enough to get to the top when the fire tower was open. We were able to climb up and get a breathtaking view of the Atlantic. We also spotted a bald eagle while we were up there! We went ...  more »
  • This is our favorite hike in Acadia (and we have done most of them over the last 35 years). The hike is moderately challenging but no scary ledges. When you get to the top, the views are just wonderfu...  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.
