Acadia National Park is a federally-protected park on Mount Desert Island in Maine. In addition to Mount Desert Island, the park comprises much of the Isle au Haut, parts of Baker Island, and part of the Schoodic Peninsula.

Cadillac Mountain, originally called Green Mountain, is on the eastern side of the island. It is named after the French explorer Antoine Laumet de La Mothe, sieur de Cadillac.
