Alite: Fun Simple Outdoor Gear for Casual Camping

Acadia National Park

Where the mountains meet the sea, Acadia National Park is an easily accessible and beautiful park in Northern Maine. The glaciated coastal landscape, granite islands and the tallest mountain on the Eastern seaboard make for limitless outdoor fun. We love places where you can bike, canoe, fish, sail, gain some elevation and play in the ocean all in one day. Camp on the coast or in the forest or even on an island. Car, foot and boat camping options available to reserve and on a first-come first-serve basis. Need more inspiration? Get a glimpse of the all Acadia has to offer here.

  • Bike, hike, drive or snowshoe to the top of Cadillac Mountain. The tallest mountain on the Atlantic coast and enjoy a view of the islands below.
