“First stop”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

The first stop after entering MDI should be the Hulls Cove visitors center in order to pay the admission fee, obtain maps and ask the park personnel any questions. There is a load of information available, an informative film that is run continuously and a schedule of park ranger led activities.

“Great Information!”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

If you are going to Acadia National Park, stop at the visitor’s center first. They have a ton of information and are very helpful. You can also pick up your Acadia Park pass ($20.00 per car for a week). The climb to the center is rather steep – about 70 steps. It is a very pretty climb with trail and historical information on the way.

“Very Informative”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

Got a lot of great information from the Park Ranger at the desk. The 15 minute video gives you an overview of the park, and it was worth it.

“start your visit to the park here”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

make sure you see the video that explains the history and what you will be seeing. while you can bring dogs with you into the park and on the trails they can't go onto some beaches or into this visitor center
