Otter Cove on Mount Desert Island Maine

Otter Cove in Acadia National Park

This shows Otter Cove on the southeast side of Mount Desert Island in Acadia National Park, Maine. Centuries ago, while sailing around Mount Desert Island during high tide, the famous explorer Samuel Champlain was drawn closer when he noticed smoke rising from a Native American encampment near Otter Cliff. After striking a rock formation called the "Spindle," his ship was forced into Otter Cove for safety and repairs that lasted through the winter.
