Directions to Acadia National Park
National Park is located along the rocky coast of what is called “Downeast” Maine.
Most of the park is on Mount Desert Island and
connected to the mainland via two short bridges. The first bridge crosses
to Thompson Island where there
is a park picnic area and an information
center. The second bridge connects Thompson Island to mainland Maine.
Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island is approximately a six
hour drive from Boston. (local towns & villages)
