An excellent welcome to the park. The workers were all helpful, and we were able to figure out our way around the park. There is a large map in the middle of the space that can really help visitors orient themselves.

Gave very good advice for a visit to the park. Definately recommend visiting if plan on doing any part of the park on foot.

Fairly small with limited things to purchase about the park. the rangers were often so busy you would end up leaving without seeing anyone. The park busses stopped at the center and on crowded summer days this is a great place to start your touring on the hop on hop off park busses.

The visitor center has a really cool raised relief map of the park. The rangers are very helpful in selecting trails and carriage paths. Tour buses come in frequently and so the place can get really crowded.

We stopped here and got information on the Carriage Roads, the ranger was friendly and thorough in outlining which ways to go, and which were the more challenging roads.

Start your tour of Acadia National Park here. You can pay the $20.00 per car fee which is good for a week and get information you may need.
