It you haven’t been you need to put Acadia National Park on your bucket list. Just don’t make the same mistake as we did and go 4th of July week. It was a zoo!
We camped on our 25 foot Class C at Seawall Campground. All the sites were booked. We had a family reunion across from us divided between 3 sites that congregated for all meals directly across from us. Counted 40 chairs. They were loud and security did nothing to quiet them. We were booked for a week and left 3 days early. There is a convenience store located approximately a half mile from the campground where you can purchase lobsters and steamers. We took our bikes up there and picked up dinner most days.
The park itself is beautiful but was very crowded. We do not tow so driving our Class C around the park was difficult. Parking was impossible. We ended up taking public transportation buses the second day which is free and frequent throughout the park and into Bar Harbor. It is also dog friendly!
Bar Harbor itself is dog friendly. We walked into a pet shop and they gave us a map of all the pet friendly shops and restaurants in town. The restaurant we had lunch at brought water for the dogs & we sat outside with our dogs under the table.
You will need several days to take in everything so plan accordingly. Sunrise on Cadillac Mountain, horse back ridding at Wildwood stables, hiking one of the many trails, bike riding on the carriage trails & so much more to see & do….Acadia truly has something for everyone.
