The annual nearly half price Acadia National Park passes will be available for $28.00 during the month of December at the following locations. Passes must be purchased in person.

Passes are required anytime you are visiting Acadia National Park

Passes are available at the following locations

  • Acadia National Park (Sand Beach Entrance Station)
  • Bar Harbor Chamber of Commerce Visitor Center

Most locations are only accepting cash or checks. Checks should be made to the National Park Service. Locations normally do not accept credit cards because of the credit card service fees, and they are doing this as a convenience for residents.

Remember that most locations will close early on Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve and will be closed on Christmas Day.

Proceeds from the sale of the passes allow the National Park Service to continue maintenance projects within the Park.

Please make sure that you are wearing a mask, and following all social distancing requirements when purchasing the passes in person.
