Schoodic Peninsula, Maine - Introduction
SCHOODIC is a very special place. Once it belonged to one man, John Moore, who loved it so well that he opened it to the public in 1897. Now most of it is part of Acadia National Park. In 1935, John D. Rockefeller, feeling that the Navy installation on Otter Cliffs on Mount Desert was unsightly, paid out of his own pocket to have it moved to nearby Big Moose Island, at the end of Schoodic Peninsula. In the last couple of years, however, the facility was deemed unnecessary for our national defense. It was vacated, and the property was transferred by the government to Acadia National Park. John D. would have liked that.

Schoodic is difficult for the cruising boat to visit. The harbors on either side of the pointPond Island, on the west shore and Wonsqueak and Bunkers Harbor on the east (see Down East) are tricky at best. Of the three, Pond Island is the best choice for temporary anchorage and access to Schoodic Head.
