“Be sure to stop in”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

Before exploring Acadia Natl. Park on our own, we stopped in at the Hulls Cove Visitor Center. Staff were very helpful. We also watched a short video there. Small gift shop. Maps and directions for the park are available. There were a lot of steps up from the parking lot....then we later noticed there is an easier ramp/grade. If you have mobility problems, be sure to use the ramp.

“Very, very small.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

It was okay...lots on the history, but we go to the Smokies a lot and their visitor centers are amazing. We were kind of disapointed.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

As with all national parks one should stop at the maine visitors center for maps and ranger advise. There is also a nice short movie about the park that was informative

“Start Here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

Both first time and returning travelers to Acadia NP should begin the journey here. There are 2 films about the park and both are fascinating. Displays are very interesting. Staff is helpful in planning activities and the shop is well-stocked.
