“Helpful!”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

The Visitors' Center has lots to look at and help orient visitors to Acadia National Park, including a 3D map of the park. We splurged on the CD guide which we used on the first day as we drove the Park Loop Road. We learned a lot from it but had to skip a couple of rather long-winded sections when we didn't stop at a given location on the CD. But I liked listening to it anyway!

“Tons of resources”
Reviewed July 11, 2013 via mobile

The staff was very helpful and gave us directions on what to see and where to go. They recommend our restaurant and gave us helpful information. You need to stop here before going onto the island!

“Helpful info and gracious staff”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

Enjoyed a brief stop here on our private tour from our cruise ship with Woody's Bar Harbor Coastal Cab & Private Tours. A wonderful 3-D model of the entire park provided a great orientation to what we were going to see. The staff were also very gracious and helpful. And the rest rooms were immaculate.

“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!
