Acadia National Park Installing EV Charging Stations in Campgrounds

Share this article

Acadia National Park (Maine) is planning to install electric vehicle (EV) charging stations in Blackwoods Campground this year and probably in Seawall Campground next year. 

“Our intention is to partner with Rivian, a manufacturer of electric chargers, and we would install them over the course of this summer,” said Deputy Superintendent Brandon Bies. 

According to a report, charging stations will be installed first at the restrooms at Blackwoods Campground. 

“The idea is that these would be an amenity that would be provided to campers, just as we provide restrooms and picnic tables,” Bies said. 

“So, the fee that we already charge for camping would cover the electrical cost for the charging stations.” 

There are already existing EV charging stations available for public use at park headquarters off Eagle Lake Road and in the section of Acadia on the Schoodic Peninsula.
