Watson Wander: Schoodic Peninsula — The quiet side of Acadia National Park

From the bloggers at Watson Wander.

Of the nearly 3 million people who visit Acadia National Park every year, very few leave the main park to see the smaller, but nonetheless spectacular Schoodic Peninsula. Located about an hour’s drive east of Mount Desert Island on the other side of Frenchman Bay, this 24,000 acre peninsula is home to striking granite headlands, rocky beaches, spruce-fir forests, and a brand new campground. This past weekend we went over to check it out.

The Schoodic Peninsula has been part of Acadia NP since 1929, but only in the last year did they add a campground and nearly nine miles of brand new carriage trails. We drove a loop though the Schoodic Woods campground and were very impressed.
