“Amazing place to do things and see all they have to offer.”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

I loved everything about the park. You can bike, hike, drive. They have tours, and educational sessions. There is a fee 20.00 for a week. We spent everyday there. They have the Sand beach or rocks to sit on to view the waters. Sunrise to view. Can't say enough wonderful things about this park.

“Spectacular”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

The entire park is spectacular. The visitor center is a nice starting point to get your bearings and plan where you want to go and what you want to do. A little something for everyone from those who only have a half day to those who are staying for a week or two there is plenty to see and do. As beautiful as it was in early June I can only imagine how breathtaking it must be in October during "leaf season", that would definitely be worth a return visit to see!

“Excellent Beginning for Park exploration”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

A short film informs the viewer with a brief history and over view of the park. Maps are available.
With more detailed maps and guides on sale at the tasteful gift shop. The park passes are on available here.
Very clean with helpful , polite staff.
The whole park is outstanding. Please take the 27 mile one way drive and stop at the scenic over views. Walk Sandy Beach, thrill to the ocean roar at Thunder hole, and take in the stunning Ocean vista and views of bar Harbor from the summit of Cadillac mountain.

“This review is for the whole park, not just the visitor's center... AMAZING”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

We did this in a day, but wish we had longer. Incredible views, amazing things to see and learn. The weather was also perfect, so that helped. Not sure I'd take little kids. My 10 year old made me plenty nervous walking all over the rocks by the ocean. We did the entire loop and loved it all.
