“Definitely stop here first!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

There's a lot of good information here. Perfect place to visit when you first arrive at the park. We had fun in here looking at the displays. There is also a little shop where you can buy some items. Definitely can get busy though!

Very clean restrooms. One free map per family. Ample parking (we were there in the off-season). Lots of nice Acadia related gifts.

“Good Starting Point”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

Made our first stop to Acadia National Park at the Hulls Cove Visitor Center. Good information on where to go and what and how to see it. Glad we stopped there first--the park is huge and the trip to Cadillac Mountain is a must.

“Great atmosphere!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

I loved the winding stairs up to the entrance. It got me excited about what I was going to see in the park. The people who worked there were very nice and friendly.
