Acadia National Park is one of the most beautiful and enchanting natural places on the North American continent. Mountains, islands and ocean combine in a unique sensory splendor that has become the crown jewel of Maine and all of America. Each year, millions of people visit for a memorable vacation and many more hope to. Towns, such as Bar Harbor, are intertwined with Acadia National Park land creating a unique blend of pristine landscapes with a Downeast flavor and character. Once visited, you want to return. Once felt, the experience stays with you forever.
The views are spectacular. The landscape is pristine. And, the wildlife is plentiful and protected. Acadia National Park, Maine, is a favorite destination for good reason a we'll spend 3 days and nights camping in the gem of the Northeastern United States! 47,000 acres and almost every angle of this island is made up of shorelines, rock walls, forests, lakes, mountains, woodlands and the Atlantic Ocean. The town of Bar Harbor is the hub of Mount Desert Island, has a symbiotic relationship with Acadia National Park. Bar Harbor, with its shops, restaurants, hotels, cottages, bed and breakfasts, inns, galleries, vacation rentals and more, has a special ambiance blended with Downeast character. You can have an ice cold beer near the waterfront resturants while watching the lobster boats bring in there daily catch
There will be plenty to do here... With 3-4 days of camping we will have plenty of time to hike the park on both sides east and west. The trails will give you some awesome views of the island, coves and ocean. There are also options to go whale watching, sea kayaking, and plenty of other activities.
