 Visitor Centers - Acadia National Park

Welcome to Acadia.  There are 3 welcome visitor centers for Acadia National Park.  Two have greeters and one consists of displays.  The one that many visitors stop at first is the one in Hulls Cove.    We recommend that visitors stop at this greeter location because anyone with questions will be able to get them answered and get pointed  in the right direction for things to see in the park as well as things to see and do outside of the park in nearby towns.    Visitors should ask for the pamphlet guide supplied by the National Park Service here.   We love this guide because it shows and tells everything you need to know about the park.   You'll see all the carriage roads, trails, mountains, and attraction locations on this map -- plus the photos are gorgeous themselves.   While at this location, enjoy the 15 minute audio/visual about the park.  It's nice to know where you are, what is here, how it got here and how to enjoy it. This center is open seasonally, generally April 15 until the end of October.  

When Hulls Cove is closed, the Park headquarters are at Winter Visitor Center which is open year round.  The Visitor center Store is definitely a stop to make.  Take the 52 steps up from the initial visitor center at Eagle Lake and prepare for Acadia's magical world where you'll see a 3D rendition of the park, a bird's eye, view that identifies all of the mountains.   The store mainly consists of books for all ages.  All purchases made at this store benefit the park.

The 3rd visitor center is at Thompson Island which is at the head of Mount Desert Island.  This area has information on display only near the water fountains and rest rooms; however, it is a beautiful area for a picnic.  Tables are located along the shoreline and there is plenty of lawn for outdoor activities.
