Welcome to Echo Lake Camp

We are so glad you are considering Echo Lake Camp for your next vacation. Here, on the quiet side of Mount Desert Island, in the heart of Acadia National Park, you will find a rare meeting of mountains and ocean that offers dramatic vistas and unbeatable hiking. This lakefront camp in Mount Desert, Maine, is an exceptional vacation spot amid this spectacular scenery.
