Glamping Acadia National Park: 10 Handpicked Options For You

Acadia National Park is every glamper’s dream. The dense forests, rolling green hills, energizing lakes, and beautiful mountaintops are perhaps where the talented musicians of Tennessee get their inspiration. That’s why we’ve dedicated an entire post to glamping Acadia National Park.

But you don’t have to be a singer or songwriter to experience Acadia. It’s a great fit for anyone and everyone.

When it comes to glamping spots in Acadia National Park, there are quite a few options available. Spending a few nights in these luxury-yet-rustic tents will get you closer to nature without compromising on comfort.

Scroll down to find the ten best glamping Acadia National Park options you can book for your next trip.

Glamping Acadia National Park: Is It Available?

You’ll find glamping spots outside of Acadia National Park, not inside it. Several companies and entrepreneurs have set up glamping accommodations like tents, yurts, and rustic cabins on private land. 

Some properties even have an on-site pool and infrared saunas to offer you the ultimate luxury camping experience. These amenities aren’t available inside Acadia.

Glamping Acadia National Park: Is Overnight Camping Available?

Acadia Yurts and Wellness Center, Southwest Harbor

  • Type of Accommodation – Yurts, small cabins
  • Best for – 4/6 guests
  • Pets allowed – No
  • Cost – $150-200 per night

Acacia Yurts is a signature yurt camping accommodation near the Acadia National Park. There are seven yurts and two small cabins built on a wooded area spanning five acres.

The traditional yurts measure 30 feet in diameter and are packed with resort-like amenities. Inside you’ll find both air conditioning and a heater for all-season glamping. Additionally, each of the yurts has a lofted bedroom with a queen-sized bed. Also, you can convert the sleeper couch into a second queen-size bed to create more sleeping space.

A fully-equipped kitchen with a refrigerator, oven, sink, and a small dining area will make you feel at home. The 24-foot diameter yurts have more or less the same amenities.

The tiny houses are no less, neither in terms of construction nor amenities. But for a true glamping experience, yurts should be your priority.

As the name suggests, the property also has a wellness center. If you feel all burned out, this is where you can revitalize. Take part in yoga sessions, get a full-body massage, sit inside a full-spectrum infrared sauna, or repose in the flotation room. You’ll feel the renewed energy almost instantly.

Acadia National Park is within 10 miles of the yurts. The drive to the national park is thrilling in itself as you’ll pass attractions like Echo Lake, Somes Sound, and various wildlife on your way.
