From Sea to Mountains

The State of Maine stretches from the rocky shores of the Gulf of Maine, north and east to the international border with Canada, and west towards New Hampshire. Four national parks lie within its borders: the coastal jewel of Acadia, the historic French settlement at Saint Croix Island, the solitude and wild lands of Katahdin Woods & Waters, and the northern end of the 2,184-mile Appalachian Trail. Two affiliated areas honor history and culture: Roosevelt Campobello and Maine Acadian Culture. Explore national park stories in Maine and plan your next visit.
