I go swimming and kayaking here. The initial part of the water can be rough and it can get very windy but there are some nice scenic spots up the river-and peaceful too. I tend to kayak from one dam to the other about 3 miles. The park can be dirty with dog do from careless owners which is very... More

This is a great spot for children. We also like to launch our kayaks here. The water is shallow for quite a ways out and gets warm in the summer. Unfortunately, it is also loved by geese so watch out for goose poop.

happened across Shirttail Point while trying to find a way out of Camden that didn't involve Rte. 1 during season. Beautiful little spot with a small beach and a nice put-in point for kayakers. I highly recommend it.

This was a favorite swimming spot for the local kids for many years. It sits above a dam. It is a quiet spot and a bit out of the way. The local Canadian geese now are very fond of it so make sure you bring shoes. The grass and sand aren't clean! It is a good place to launch a... More
