    I would give this 4 points if the water was not that cold when I visited. Other than that, the water was so clear that you can even see the bottom. Great view as well.  more »

    We combined Echo Lake, Flying Mountain Trail, some shopping, and Thurston's Lobster Pound into a day since all are located on the "less busy" end of Mount Desert Island. Echo Lake was nice, water was ...  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.
