Several people said go there-----they were right

Took break from MDI and drove the Schoodic loop. The whole drive was scenic, capped off by the Point. Seas were calm. Go there on breezy day to see more dramatic surf and spray.

I got to enjoy this drive in a way that makes it very memorable. I was the only one on the entire loop for miles and miles. It was a sunny day and I was there early...by 9 am. There was still fog on certain sections of the road on the approach to the loop which is marked. I stopped... More

We visited Bar Harbor last week and had a cloudy day with occasional rain and I read in a previous review that Schoodic Point is even better in the rain. It didn't disappoint. I could have sat for hours on the rocks just watching the waves. It was mesmerizing to say the least. A great drive from Bar Harbor and... More

The entire Schoodic Park area is very scenic, especially Schoodic Point. We noticed many painters taking advantage of the scenery while we were there. The setting is very dramatic. It is one of those places where you just want to sit on the rocks and gaze off into the ocean and at the surrounding scenery.

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.
