In 1998, the National Park Service and the University of Idaho conducted a general visitor study in Acadia National Park. We asked questions of a representative sample of park visitors - about themselves, their visit to the park, and several current issues such as public transportation and park fees. A similar study was conducted in 2009, addressing some new transportation issues and park interpretive programs; results should be available in 2010. Similar studies for many national parks are available through the University of Idaho.
