Campground #36 Schoodic Woods Campground in Acadia National Park, Maine

The National Park Service is celebrating it’s 100th year and we wanted to mark the occasion by visiting the newest NPS campground, Schoodic Woods Campground in Acadia National Park, Maine.

The Schoodic Peninsula is a part of Acadia National Park that many visitors never see, but that doesn’t make it any less magical or spectacular. Located about an hours drive from the main part of the park on Mount Desert Island, the Schoodic area has a rugged beauty and amazing views, but none of the crowds that you will find on the Park Loop Road.
