Acadia National Park is busiest during the summer season. It can be quite difficult to get parking spots during this time. The Park Loop Road and the carriage road entrances are usually the most crowded and can be avoided if the Island Explorer Buses are used for travelling. These are fare-free rides and can take visitors to any destination in the park.


You can come to the park for visitations on a private non-commercial vehicle. People coming via Boston should:

  • I-95 north to Augusta, Maine
  • Route 3 East to Ellsworth towards Mount Desert Island

Alternate Route:

  • Keep going on I-95 North to Bangor, Maine
  • Take Route 1A Eastwards to Ellsworth
  • From Ellsworth take Route 3 to Mount Desert Island
