Acadia Area

Acadia National Park camping dates back to the days before there even was an Acadia National Park. For generations, vacationers have bypassed the hubbub of the beaches for a trip to remote Mount Desert Island. And the recipe for the perfect Acadia vacation remains constant: active, engaging days spent admiring the island’s natural beauty balanced with the refined comforts of the island’s legendary hospitality.

Woods of Eden keeps that tradition alive, putting the emphasis on comfort and luxury for your Acadia National Park Camping trip, while still bringing you as close to nature as humanly possible.
When you’re not relaxing in one of our glamping tents, there’s loads to do and see on the island. To get you started, here are links to some of my favorite sites for finding your way around Mount Desert.
And if you don’t find what you’re looking for, or just want some personalized recommendations, please get in touch with me directly. I love helping my guests have their perfect Acadia National Park camping experience.
