Beautiful views and drive. Very restful as it's not as crowded as Acadia National Park near Bar Harbor. Nice staircase down to the rocks for the non mountain goats in us. Vista points are well maintained. My only complaint is where is the bathroom? One...More

Schoodic Point was incredible. Extremely picturesque, quintessential rugged Maine coast. Great fun walking on the rocks and watching the surf pound. We could've spent hours there just relaxing.

So glad we took the time to drive here while staying in Southwest Harbor. Equally as beautiful & less busy than most areas of the park on MDI.

A must see - this is also part of Arcadia National Park. Accessible by boat from Bar Harbor, or by a gorgeous drive on Route 1 to Route 182.

I read that only 10% of visitors to Acadia go to Shoodic, which is unfortunate as it is breathtakingly beautiful without the crowds on MDI. Not enough parking on scenic views so watch out for the rabid park rangers who are eager to hand out...More

About an hour away from the rest of Acadia and doesn't require an admission or pass. I enjoyed the drive. The point is definitely photo worthy. It's all rocks on shore with the ocean and forested islands off shore. Many of the rocks are huge,...More

I don't believe so but won't swear to it. I did not see any ferries and we were there for about 3 hours
