Watch an introductory video about the history and opportunities to see and do in this beautiful natural park. Otherwise, not much to see besides a gift shop and getting information from rangers.

Lots of parking, brochures, information, and helpful park rangers answer your questions even during peak times. The free tour buses provide tours of the park and all of Mount Dessert Island. You will learn to love this amazing place.

We spent the whole day here. Cadillac mountain had breathtaking views . The sand beach was fun and the water was cold! There were clean changing facilities and the restrooms were also clean. The visitor center was informative and the staff was pleasant!

The inside of the visitor center is nice. You can purchase a park pass, souvenirs, etc. They do have an auditorium, but I did not do that. The only thing is that the exterior looks a little rough.

No, sorry. I am going to guess that no matter who you get, coverage will be spotty. I have Verizon and coverage is so-so. I have a Casio and my wife Apple, and though we both have Verizon my coverage was better than hers... More
