Acadia National Park is a National Park located in the U.S. state of Maine. It reserves much of Mount Desert Island, and associated smaller islands, off the Atlantic coast. Originally created as Lafayette National Park in 1919, the oldest National Park east of the Mississippi River, it was renamed Acadia in 1929.
Thunder Hole is an inlet that is naturally carved out of the rocks. The water rolls into the inlet and is forced into a cavern and when it rushes out it give a large bang like a clap of thunder. The water can come out and go as much as 40 feet into the air. When you come around the corner to Thunder Hole, you should roll your window down so you can listen to nature talking to you as you approach.
