Blackwoods Campground...

by Cabana_Boy about Blackwoods Campground...

Managed by the National Park Service, this campground has 306 sites and is part of Acadia National Park. $20 per night for a tent site. My tent site was less than a five minute walk to the Atlantic Ocean and set in a heavily wooded area of Pine and Birch trees... Beware, there are several large Raccoons that frequent the area (probably because people are feeding them).

Clean and quiet family camping

by diver-x about Mount Desert Campground

Mount Desert Campground is on the water on Sommes Sound. They have a boat ramp, dock and kayak and canoe rentals. The campground is convenient to Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor, and a bus stops at the front office. The bathrooms and showers are very clean. Hot showers cost 50 cents for 5 minutes. There are many camp sites on the water, but there is generally a waiting list for them and a minimum one week stay is required. For stays less than one week, you can have a wooded site. I'm rating this campground more expensive than average, because at $35 per night, that's the most I've ever spent to camp.

On the way to Bar Harbor, you...

by FredLDay

On the way to Bar Harbor, you can swing off the highway at Salisbury Cove> There are cabins there on a quiet beach that will allow you to sleep for a hundred years in the space of one night. If you are looking for serenity, Sue and I highly recommend Salisbury Coce. It is only five minutes from Acadia National Park and downtown Bar Harbor. A cabin with a view across Salisbury Cove and Bar Harbor, a porch to sit on, a huge manicured lawn before you going down to a rocky beach, a kitchenette in the cabin and the sounds of the ocean and songbirds and crickets. No highway noise as it is a few hundred yards back to the highway.

Acadia National Park campground

by jenran1 about Blackwoods Campground

This is a HUGE campground. It is woodsy but not quiet or remote. And we found it to be pretty noisy (lots of excited kids with space to wander, play and ride bikes). Because it is such a large and busy campground, the staff doesn't really like it if you ask to have a chance to look around for a choice spot. They much prefer to assign you one and have you move along. Nevertheless, we did manage to switch sites once we were in the park (with staff permission).

There are picnic tables and fire rings at each site. The facilities include toilets and sinks but no showers and only cold water.

Consider this campground just a spot to sleep so that you can further explore the park.

Gateway to Acadia National Park

by tuff

Bar Harbor is a small town with the beauty of the coastline and the nearby Acadia National Park makes a visit here worthwhile. The wealthy flocked to Bar Harbor at the turn of the century, building “cottages” that turned this small town into a summer resort. Bar Harbor can be access by foot; a stroll along the coastline and the village is simply relaxing and enjoyable

Downtown Bar Harbor

Quick snack you have to try while in Bar Harbor.

Acadia National Park

by lonestar_philomath

"Acadia National Park"

This park is about 1.5 hours east of Bangor. Once you get to the island look for signs to start your adventures. I entered and exited at the Stanley Brook Entrance. On the opposite side of the road there is a beach. I went in November and it was cool and overcast but I had a fun day.

"Stone bridge"

One of the first man made objects (besides the road) you approach may be the stone bridge with three arches. This was my entry/exit point.

"A House"

Sorry, don't know the significance of this building except it was in the park.

"South Bubble & Balance Rock"

Hiking trail

"On top of Cadillac Mountain"

In the clouds.....

low cloud cover provided an errie sensation....

was looking for a picture to paint (I want to pick up oil painting)

"Mountian pools"

Believe me, these are considered pools for a Texan after the past two years of drought!

"One of many waterfalls"

There were many waterfalls tumbling down Cadillac Mountain on 12 November 2006. This was just one.

Acadia National Park 2

by JSki

This is a natural spring within the park that actually is the drinking supply for the entire park and all of Bar Harbor. You are not allowed to swim in it but can kayak on it. It is so amazingly clean it almost appears like sacred water. For the millions of people who have visited here, obviously many have honored this lovely spring.

View of one of the other mountains on our way up to Cadillac Mountain. Lovin' that loop road!

Almost to the top of Cadillac Mountain. Many stops along the way, the view just keeps getting better.

I could not put into words this view. This is the top of Cadillac Mountain which is the highest point on the Eastern United States. If you stand at this point facing east, at sunrise, you will be the first in the United States to see the sunrise and start the day.

Acadia National Park, Scooter?

by deepsea29c

We are thinking of renting scooters to see the park, any advice?

Re: Acadia National Park, Scooter?

by YVRDave

Don't wipe out, it's real embarassing

Re: Acadia National Park, Scooter?

by YVRDave

.....and painful at times

Re: Acadia National Park, Scooter?

by deepsea29c

Ha, ha. I need a real answer. Is it any easy ride downtown Bar Harbor to the park entrance etc.

Re: Acadia National Park, Scooter?

by luv2laughlots

My hubby and I took our motorcylces up there last fall. Absolutely beautiful! It's easy to get in and out of Bar Harbor on two wheels and parking is a lot easier. Not sure where to rent them up there though, sorry can't help you there. When are you going?

Re: Acadia National Park, Scooter?

by deepsea29c

We are going in the fall, but we were told the scooters (50cc) would not do well going to Cadillac Mountain.

Re: Acadia National Park, Scooter?

by luv2laughlots

Well, 50cc may have some trouble making the inclines. I had 1100cc's and the hubby had 1340cc's. I will say when we went in the end of September, by the time we got to the top, it was quite chilly! It was pretty steep! But, it is one beautiful place.

Re: Acadia National Park, Scooter?

by deepsea29c

Is it worth the $25+ to go on Oli's Trolley which goes to Cadillac Mountain peak....or take the free shuttle explorer buses which do not go to the summit of Cadillac Mountain?

Re: Acadia National Park, Scooter?

by luv2laughlots

Sorry, not familiar with the trolley or the shuttle buses, but the view from the peak is unbelievable. You can look down at the town of Bar Harbor and it looks like an ant on an elephants butt! I'm not sure how you are getting to Bar Harbor, but the road going thru the park is awesome with lots of places to pull off and check out the view. Make sure to stop at Jordan's Pond to get some Clam Chowder. The entire back wall of the restaurant is windows and it overlooks a beautiful pond (more the size of a lake).

Re: Acadia National Park, Scooter?

by deepsea29c

We are coming in on cruise ship. The trolley's don't give you the freedom of eating at the Jordon's Pond Rest. but the Island Explorer buses allow the freedom of stops, but do not go up the road to cadillac mountain-top because they are too long for the winding roads.

Re: Acadia National Park, Scooter?

by luv2laughlots

Well, this is a toughie! I would say with all of that insight, I would save the $25 to go to the top, spend it on a great lunch at Jordan's Pond and do the shuttle bus. It is a beautiful view, but it is just as beautiful all the way up. I think the shuttle stops at Thunder Hole too. If I was in your shoes (which I wish I was), go for the shuttle. Hope you have a wonderful trip! If you have any other questions that I can try to help, please don't hesitate to ask!

Acadia National Park

by vivaciousmohan


Greetings. We are a group of 11 people visiting Maine for 3 days. We have planned outdoor activities(ATV, White water) for 2 days. For the third day we are planning to visit Acadia national park. Could you please help us planning for Acadia park? We need suggestions like what are the best places to see in Acadia.. whether we can go to all places by car...Do need to book any tickets through online..Thanks For your help in advance..

Re: Acadia National Park

by TexasDave

Kennebunkport is about 200 miles away and the original L.L. Bean store, in Freeport, is about 150 miles away, although there is a small L.L. Bean outlet on highway 3 (the main highway that passes through town) in Ellsworth.
There's nothing that you need tickets for in Acadia Park itself. You definitely need a car to drive the park loop which is 27 miles long and spirals up to the summit of Cadillac Mtn. You can stop wherever you want to and swim, hike, etc. There are ranger-led hikes and other activities and you can take a horse-drawn carriage ride over the historic carriage roads.
Bar Harbor is very pretty with a bunch of quaint stores. Plan on having breakfast at Jordan's on Cottage St for their famous blueberry pancakes with real maple syrup, mmm.

Acadia National Park in late october?

by ylyada

I'm planning to spend a couple of days by the end of October in Acadia National Park, and I was wondering how are the weather conditions at the end of October, are the park facilities opened ?

RE: Acadia National Park in late october?

by TempNomad

I think it is open, but it's the tail-end of the season. Check out: http://www.nps.gov/acad/

Acadia is beautiful anytime, but make sure to bring warm inner and outer-wear!
