In addition to the town of Isle au Haut, approximately half of the island’s land belongs to Acadia National Park. Every year, thousands of day visitors venture out to the island to enjoy its hiking trails and beautiful scenery. The Isle au Haut Boat Company provides seasonal service to the Duck Harbor Landing, where hikers and campers can find a picnic area and lean-to’s, which are available for reservation through Acadia National Park.
For more information on Acadia National Park, please visit the National Park Service’s website.
