Re: Acadia National Park....

Honestly, I wouldn't expect crowds to be all that big of a problem...it's the same story at any National park or popular area, but shouldn't prevent excellent photos...it's all just about angles, going against or away from the crowded spots, picking different hours, and being a little more patient for scenic shots. I can take people-free photos even in Disney World on a crowded day - it's just a matter of timing and patience.

Acadia is a pretty big park, so you shouldn't have a problem getting away from the crowds. Vistas from Cadillac mountain are looking out, so it doesn't matter if you're standing next to 1,000 people. The coastal trails out of Bar Harbor, along the bay front, are wonderful for scenic vistas and not as crowded - you can walk for miles around the bay and most tourists stay near town or the bus routes. During low tide, you can walk out to some of the islands nearby...great shots back to town from there too. Scenic 'Maine' shots like lobster boats at anchor in the bay, docks, piered buildings, rocky coastlines, etc are always available all around you, with no people getting in the way of the shot since you are shooting out over water, cliffs, etc.
