Leave your car and other modern technologies behind and head out to Isle au Haut where you will find the very best of primitive camping at Duck Harbor Campground. Ferry service from the mainland will drop you and your gear in Duck Harbor, and from there, you’re on your own. Explore the wild, rocky shores, hike the 18-miles of trails, or just kick back and relish the fact that you got a spot in this pristine paradise. Competition is fierce for these few sites, so be ready to plan way ahead.

So much to see, much like Yosemite. Having a vehicle makes seeing everything Acadia has to offer much easier.
