We visit Maine every summer and for years I have wanted to make the drive to Campbello Island. This year we did it! I love historical sites so I really enjoyed it but I can't say that for the whole family. It is a long drive from the Bar Harbor area and I'm not sure it was worth the drive, especially with three teenagers. There is little to do on the island other than East Quoddy Lighthouse, which was cool except for the fog (the purpose of the lighthouse!) and the Roosevelt complex. The first floor of the cottage was accessible but not the 2nd floor which is a primary reason why FDR didn't return after the onset of polio. The island had three 'restaraunts'.
Overall, a fun trip that you need your passport for but pretty far from the typical vacation spots in Maine.
