Stamp Location: Stamp is located in the interpretive shelter on the mainland along US 1, eight miles south of Calais, at the State of Maine Information Center at the intersections of US 1 & SR 9 and at the Hulls Cove VC at Acadia NP (see separate listing) where you'll have to ask for the stamp. Access to the island is by private boat only. We were the only ones there the day we went in Oct. 1995!
