Don't Skip Hulls Cove Visitor Center at Acadia

Visitor Center History

The Hulls Cove Visitor Center was under construction for quite some time — from 1967 to 1986. The project was funded by the Mission-66 Program, an initiative to improve the infrastructure of national parks. 

Check Out the Carriage Roads & Bridge

Located right outside of the Hulls Cove Visitor Center are the carriage roads and bridges. Throughout Acadia National Park are 45 miles of carriage roads that were financed by John D. Rockefeller. The carriage roads and bridges were built between 1913 and 1940. 

Jack Russell’s Prime Steak House

After building up an appetite from hiking around Acadia National Park, stop by Jack Russell’s Prime Steak House for a hearty meal. The steakhouse is family owned and offers free parking in the middle of Bar Harbor’s hotel district. 

Atlantic Oceanside Hotel

The Atlantic Oceanside Hotel is an affordable option for those looking to be on the water. The hotel offers ocean views, a private beach, and indoor and outdoor pools in an ideal location that is close to historic downtown Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. 

Get Stamped!

Avid national park visitors love to carry their National Parks Passport Books with them and gather stamps. Much like a passport that you would use to visit another country, you can collect stamps at each park or visitor center that you visit.
