Visitor Centers & Contact Stations

Under a sign saying "information", several rangers talk to a row of people from behind a desk.

To promote our staff and visitors' safety, visitor centers and contact stations are currently operating under modified conditions.

In summer, head to Hulls Cove Visitor Center or Sieur de Monts Nature Center to talk to a ranger, pick up a park pass and map, and browse the park store. Here, you'll find information to help plan your visit and learn more about Acadia. You can also join a ranger program, or become a junior ranger!

In winter, information and park passes are available at the
Bar Harbor Chamber of Commerce in downtown Bar Harbor.
