Located in the Schoodic District of Acadia National Park in the Town of Winter Harbor, this picnic area is a great place to start your National Park exploration. It’s a wonderful family picnic spot with waterfront access and stunning views of the open ocean and nearby islands.
In the heart of the Schoodic District and the middle of the peninsula sits the Schoodic Woods Campground and recreation area. The landscape is rugged and coastal in nature. There are great picnic spots, interpretive information and rangers to help you plan activities. This is also a great destination for hiking and biking. Here you will find easy trails without lots of people. There are public restrooms and lots of parking.
At the end of the one-way loop drive in the National Park discover Wonsqueak Harbor. Unlike the larger Winter Harbor or Prospect Harbor, this timeless gem of a harbor sits among stunning coastal scenery. Perched on the rocks above the water is an iconic salty Maine sea shack. This quiet, gorgeous spot will take your breath away.
