What to Pack on Your Trip to Maine

What to Pack for a Trip to Acadia National Park

If you’re used to summering in The Hampton’s or on Nantucket, the somewhat cooler temperatures on Mount Desert Island may take you by surprise, so be sure to pack some extra cotton sweaters and a windbreaker. Don’t worry about a lot of extra evening outfits, though. Even the best restaurants are casual. At one of my favorite “table cloth” restaurants, I recently noted that an elegant bandeau-clad fellow diner was wearing her hiking boots. Below is a list of items I’ve forgotten in the past.


  • Sports band for sunglasses
  • Maps and trail guides
  • Bike helmet (save the rental)
  • Water shoes
  • Sports wristwatch
  • Wool socks
  • Hiking bandannas
  • Hiking belt

  • Cap (Red Sox, not Yankees)
  • Nalgene bottles
  • Binoculars
  • Tripod
  • Rain gear (yellow welcome)
  • Windbreaker & fleece
  • Mosquito repellant
  • Waterproof stuff sack

Check typical temperature ranges under When to Visit to help guide your packing!
