Location: Accessed through Winter Harbor, Hancock County
Description: It’s a one-way scenic drive along the tree-lined, rocky coast that is very popular with bicyclists and motorists alike, yet serene and devoid of crowds. Frazer Point, a picnic area right on the ocean, offers tables, fire pits, and panoramic views. Cadillac Mountain, one of the better known parts of Acadia, is visible across Frenchman Bay.
Favorite Season(s) to Visit: Spring, summer, and fall
Activities: Biking, hiking, picnicking, camping, and enjoying great views of Maine’s rocky coast!
Why It’s Special: It is the lesser known and geographically separated part of Acadia National Park. Tips: Its craggy reach out into the ocean at the tip of the point is one of the best spots in Maine to see surf crashing into the rocks and spraying high into the air. A rather large campground, opening in 2015, will offer some sites with electrical service for recreational vehicles and other will be reserved for tents. Although privately built, it is expected to be operated and maintained by the National Park Service.
