Operating Hours & Seasons
The National Park Service does not operate any sites as part of Maine Acadian Culture. Many of the attractions in the St. John Valley are privately operated by non-profit organizations that are part of the Maine Acadian Heritage Council. The information contained here is intended to give you a rough idea of operating hours and seasons. Many sites are open only during summer months. Please verify hours directly with the managing organizations and check with chambers of commerce for more information about these or other sites.
