Traffic & Congestion
Don't Let Gridlock Spoil Your Acadia Experience
• Always visit Acadia with a back-up plan
• Don't expect to find a parking space at popular sites
• Park legally and responsibly
• If a parking lot is full when you arrive, choose a new destination, try again at another time of day, or use a different form of transportation
All of these areas, except Cadillac Summit, can be reached by using the Island Explorer shuttle bus system.
Park Legally and Responsibly
If you explore with a personal vehicle, please park legally and responsibly. Certain areas along the one-way section of the Park Loop Road allow right-hand lane parking. When parking in designated areas, make certain that all wheels remain on the pavement. Roadside parking outside of designated areas is prohibited. Oversized vehicles, such as recreational vehicles (or vehicles pulling trailers) cannot be accommodated in certain areas.
