Acadia National Park, Maine

Acadia National Park, just 40 miles (64 km) southeast of Bangor, Maine, is one of the best national parks for stargazing in the country. The park has earned the Dark Sky Defender Award and acknowledgement by the International Dark Sky Association, and connects astro-tourism efforts, lighting ordinances in the surrounding townships, and lighting retrofit projects, and hosts the Annual Acadia Night Sky Festival. Please note that while camping is allowed, there are four different campgrounds to choose from, and public access otherwise is only available between 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. For reservations, visit online or call 207-288-3338 between 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Eastern Time, Monday to Friday.
