DownEast & Acadia Campgrounds

The DownEast & Acadia Region is extremely diverse with a beautiful and dramatic coastline as well as inland areas with rich forests, meandering rivers and sparkling lakes carved out by the receding glaciers at the end of the last Ice Age. The region boasts everything from the 1,530-foot Cadillac Mountain – the highest point on the eastern seaboard north of Rio de Janeiro – to the beauty of Passamaquoddy Bay, the first place the sun rises in the U.S. to the natural splendor of Grand Lake. There are 24 lighthouses in the DownEast and Acadia region, more than any other region of Maine.
