Acadia National Park

Any info appreciated. Can you find a parking spot in park (not to camp) just to get out and walk around? RV parks seem quite a distance away and I will not be towing a car. RV is small 25 ft. Thanks for any info. Connie

We stayed here Welcome to Timberland Acres RV Park when we went to Acadia last year. Very nice people that run the park. Good level pull thrus. Their web site says they are 14 miles from the park entrance, and that is about right. Personally I would not take a RV inside the park. We only saw one small class "C" in the 4 days we were there. The parking lot is basically for cars and to drive around the park, you will find the roads narrow and not a lot of room, if any, for an RV to pull off and park.

Parking

You can park at the visitors center and then take the free bus service throughout the park and towns. There are several other parking areas at certain sites but fill up fast and can be a problem to navigate in a motorhome. If you are there in the off season, parking may not be an issue.

x2. Leave the RV in the campground and take the shuttle bus. Parking lots around the scenic loop are small and crowded.

It depends on when you go and how often you want to get out and explore. I have driven a 28 foot class c around the 20 mile loop road and did not find any problem. However, as mentioned many of the pull-offs fill quickly and some are pretty tight for an RV. But, again, in the off season it can be done. I actually lucked out and found a place to park in downtown Bar Harbor. The Island Explorer buses are convenient and make stops at campgrounds, carriage road entrances and some trailheads. Your park entrance fee helps maintain this free service.

When we were at ANP in June 2008, the free shuttle did not go up Cadillac Mtn. But it was an easy drive in out 25' Winnie View. Plenty of tour bus parking spaces at the top.

Be sure to check out bridge clearances. There are 1 or 2 on the Loop Road or exiting the Loop Road (south side maybe?) that we couldn't clear.

There's an RV parking area on the south side of Bar Harbor on Rte 3 (& Park St.) next to the ball fields. You can take the LL Bean bus all around the island.

Just left Acadia NP and our stay was @ Blackwoods CG. We do not have a toad but the park has free bus service to most anywhere you would want to go. I believe there are 7 bus routes. You can probably find it (GOOGLE) Island Explorer-Acadia. We were quite pleased with the service.
And what a beautiful place, Acadia and the surrounding area. This is one place you can get by without a car.
You should check on service after labor day as I think it may be reduced.
