First Time Visit: Camping Weather

How are the night time temps in Acadia in late June? We were wondering if a simple sleep sack liner will do or if we should pack up our 3 season sleeping bag. I read day time temps vary but in the 80s that time of the year - not sure how cool it gets at night though since summer temps along coastline tend to be cooler. Also are bugs a major issue or do the birdies take care of that well? Thanks!

80's would be the highs on warm days. The average high for June in Bar Harbor is in the mid-70's. The average lows, though, are in the mid-50's (upper 50's to 60 in July), so personally I would bring the 3-season sleeping bag.

Late June you will be past the Black Fly peak, but there will be mosquitos. Evenings are when they are most active, mid-day they won't be too bad, and on the shore when the breeze is up you won't be bothered, but I would want good netting on my tent.

Thank you so much! I'll be sure to tell the rest of our group going to Blackwoods to pack the 3 season bags and to have the insect shields.

Just remember averages are just that - averages. You may encounter warmer or cooler temperatures. Since you are just coming from Providence you may get a forecast which would give you confidence of especially warm nights. Otherwise, bring the 3 season bag. Likewise bring rain jackets unless you know it won't rain.

Blackwoods is a nice place, you'll have a good time.
