Acadia National Park is one of the lesser known parks and is also relatively small compared to the better-known National Parks. Mainly known to the Americans themselves and therefor very busy during the summer months and it’s located in the southeastern corner of the State of Maine. It protects a large part of Mount Desert Island and several smaller islands off the Atlantic coast. The area consists of mountains, coastline, forests and lakes. In addition to Mount Desert Island, the park includes a large part of the Isle au Haut, a small island southwest of Mount Desert Island. A part of the Schoodic Peninsula on the mainland of Maine is also part of the park.

The park includes the Grand Canyon, a deep and steep gorge, cut by water erosion of the Colorado River and its tributaries.  Geological colors and erosion form a canyon of 279 miles (446 km) long, is Maximum 18 miles (29 km) wide and 1 mile (1.6 km) deep.  The Grand Canyon is considered one of the greatest natural wonders of the world. The park is 4927 km² in size.
