    I loved hiking this trail on a beautiful September afternoon. It wasn't a very long hike but well worth the views and of course a picture near Bubble Rock. If you have the time, don't miss this one! M...  more »

    This is a great place to take picture of your party "pushing" the rock over the edge. It is an uphill hike to get there, but it is downhill to the parking lot. Worth a stop!  more »

    This was a nice hike up to Bubble Rock. Then the payoff is seeing that huge boulder precariously on the edge! Make sure you get your picture taken with it - I imagine one day that rock will be rolling...  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.
