Cadillac Mountain, Acadia National Park, Maine

Located on Mount Desert Island off the cost of Maine, Acadia is home to two campgrounds: The rustic Seawall, and Blackwoods, which offers more comprehensive facilities (including pay showers). Either represents Maine at its best: A cool breeze through endless miles of pine, chilled, clear ponds and lakes, and extraordinary leaf peeping during fall. For those looking for a brisk hike in the wee hours of the morning, there awaits one of the more sublime experiences around: The chance to be the first person in the country to see the sun rise, atop Cadillac's summit, the highest point along the east coast.
