The East coast camping destination of Acadia National Park has an amazing human history going back 5000 years, from Native Americans to English and French settlers. The natural beauty and incredible human history make this a wonderful East coast camping destination.

Acadia National Park features a beautiful landscape. One of the main attractions is Cadillac Mountain, which is both the tallest mountain in the park and along the eastern coast. The views from Cadillac Mountain include the Porcupine Islands and Frenchman Bay. The mountain can be reached by a twisting road that closes December 1st through April 14th, and as weather requires. Another attraction is the Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse which offers nearby trails with incredible views. With beautiful nature, multiple attractions and a rich history, Acadia National Park is a superb East coast camping destination.

Acadia National Park is open all year. You can enjoy miles of walking/hiking trails, which makes experiencing Acadia National Park on foot one of the best modes of travel. Bus and carriage tours are also available. The climate at Acadia has been ranked 2nd only to the Pacific Northwest as far as annual precipitation is concerned, so come prepared for rain. If you’re interested in fishing, you’ll be able to find some great fishing spots, however, a fishing permit is required for fresh water fishing.
