On vacation with friends and were told to see Schoodic Point and we were not disappointed. It was a very pretty drive around the loop. Beautiful coastline and views. Also a great place to watch the waves breaking over the rocks. There are also places where you can walk on the rocks. We really enjoyed our time there and would... More

We didn't plan it, but we got there right at high tide. The water was hitting the rocks with such force that it was splashing several feet up. We hiked the Anvil trail which said "moderate" but we found it to be a bit more difficult than that. Worth all the work at the end.

Hike, bike, watch the sunset on a rocky peninsula....and a beautiful rv park. Fabulous. It is going to become hard to get into as it is becoming "known"....so go soon even if only for the day

GREAT riding here, including a section that is similar to the carriage trails on MDI. Not too challenging. Fantastic scenery!

On the other side of Frenchman's Bay from Bar Harbor. Much less traffic than the Loop Road. Well maintained restrooms are provided. Nearest food service may be Winter Harbor. Interesting granite formation protruding into the bay. Enjoyable wave action even at low tide. Nice view-different view-of Cadallic Mountain and Egg Rock Lighthouse. Nice rest break in the quiet, small town... More

Acadia is great; I've been coming here for years. The Schoodic Peninsula has lots of the things that make the main park great, but with fewer people. Now that the Park Service has a campground on the peninsula, it's a must-visit. Hiking trails, bike trails, parking areas.

Schoodic peninsula was one of our favorite destinations while staying in Sullivan. The sunrise at Blueberry point was magical, the purples, pinks and fiery red of the sun creeping over the horizon as the waves broke on the rocks. We brought beach towels and laid on the rocks of Schoodic point and took the most relaxing naps there. Come at... More

The Schoodic section of Acadia National Park is off the more beaten path of its counterpart on Mount Desert Island, bust as beautiful as its counterpart. The loop road has lovely vistas of the Gulf of Maine so make sure to have your camera handy. A stop at the Shoodic Institute, a former military base, should include a tour of... More

We visited as the tide was coming in and OH!MY! was it powerful! Huge splashes and rolling thunder sounds. A strong, stiff breeze pushed at us as we stared out to sea. Seabirds took refuge all along the rocky boulders and would swoop and dive if they were disturbed. We never felt crowded, even though other folks were also enjoying... More

This was a excellent spot for the waves crashing in on the rocky area Parking can be hard as spots are taken up quickly Just come and sit and watch the ocean
