Ocean Waves in Acadia National Park

Pretty Marsh Picnic Area Location in Acadia National ParkThe Pretty Marsh Picnic Area in Acadia National Park is located in a beautiful secluded setting on the “quiet” southwestern side of Mount Desert Island. The entrance is off the western loop of Route 102. A short winding road weaves through a forested area until arriving in a stand of fur and spruce citadels with carpets of lush green moss. There are several picnic tables nested like private islands amongst the trees for your use. A steep embankment slopes towards the ocean to the west leading to a shore covered with small rocks and shell fragments. A recently constructed wooden stairway makes it safer to reach the shore and return to the picnic area. Views of Bartlett Island are directly west. This is a memorable place for a special picnic with friends and loved ones.
