ACADIA NATIONAL PARK (AP) – Acadia National Park had 2.2 million visitors last year – an increase from 2006 but still below the highs set in the mid-1990s.

According park officials, last year’s visitor count was up from just under 2.1 million in 2006 and was the highest total since 2004.

But it was still well below the 2.8 million people who visited the park in 1995.

Acadia National park is located on Mount Desert Island in eastern Maine, with parkland also located on Schoodic Peninsula and Isle au Haut.
