All park entrance fees, including commercial tour entrance fees, will be waived. The waiver is for that one day only, and doesn’t apply to camping fees at Blackwoods or Seawall.
Golden Age, Golden Access, Acadia Annual passes, and National Park passes will still be available for purchase at all normal locations throughout the park.
Call 288-3338 and press “0” for more information.
