WHERE ARE THE RESTROOMS LOCATED IN ACADIA NATIONAL PARK?

Restrooms are located throughout Acadia National Park, but not all restrooms are created equally.  In Acadia restrooms fall into three categories, as follows;  flush toilets, glorfied outhouses, and port-a-potties.
Flush toilets have sinks with running water, mirrors on the wall and most importantly - toilets that flush.  By far I think most people prefer flush toilets when visiting a restroom.
Flush toilets can be found in both of the National Park campground, at Blackwoods and Seawall campgrounds, as well as at the more populat attractions in the park such as Sand Beach, the Bass Harbor Lighthouse, the Wild Gardens of Acadia the Cadillac Mountain Gift Shop, the Hulls Cove Visitors Center and any of the picnic areas such as rhe Bear Brook Picnic area.
Glorfied outhouses are pretty much just that, outhouses that are more solidly constructed but are pretty much a hole in the ground with no flush, no running water, no sinks and no mirrors.  And its syrprising where some of thses are located in the National Park, places like the Ship Harbor Nature Trail.
Sadly even in this day and age port-a-potties can be found within the National Park.  Two port-a-potties are located at the very popular Duck Brook Bridge carriage roads, hidden behind tall fencing by the parking area.
