Photos of Acadia National Park and Mount Desert Island

Mount Desert Island, the largest island off the coast of Maine, is best known for the Acadia National Park.

Created as Lafayette National Park in 1919 and renamed Acadia in 1929, the park includes mountains, an ocean shoreline, woodlands, lakes, and even a sandy beach. It is a very popular destination for outdoors activities and camping with two and a half million tourists a year.

On the Western side of the island, off the park, the town of Tremont includes the villages of Bass Harbor (or McKinley), Bernard, Gotts Island, Seal Cove and West Tremont, where fishing, especially lobster fishing, is an important part of the daily life.

You can find more photos of Acadia National Park and Mount Desert Island on my stock photos website.
