My wife and I recently took a day trip to Acadia National Park and drove the park loop to see the sights. This area is so beautiful. We love it. But it is so overrun with people it makes it extremely hard to enjoy. All...More

Always fun though can get a bit crowded during the summer time. Otter Cliff portion is always a wonderful place to park and get out and go for a walk.

You basically have to take the Park Loop to get to most of the more interesting areas of the park. Also most of the parks roads are one way so they can accommodate more parking so you have to do the loop. Great views, maintained...More

Too many excellent places to mention them all so I will just say don't miss any. I think we only missed one. We took some short hikes along the coast, stopped at the pullouts, and parked where they had places to park. It was all...More

The loop road was a good way to get an overview of the park, but we missed a turn off and had to back track because it is one way. There is a lot of traffic during summer and it’s well worth the time.

I recommend doing this this drive early in the morning before the traffic gets heavy and the cruise ship people hit the park. It is a beautiful drive and you can see where you might want to go back to later.

It was a lovely drive, perfect warm sunny day and traffic wasn't painful but it didn't have much wow factor for us. We see ocean drives, bush and mountains (not just hills) on a regular basis so maybe we are harder to please. If you...More

I am sorry, while we went thru the park I was not looking for camp sites so I am not even sure there are any in the park. If there are I would imagine they would be quit beautiful.
