I traveled to Reversing Falls to hunt for the three caches hidden here. Two of the caches are physically there and one is an Earthcache that is an Earth Science lesson. We traveled over dirt and paved roads exploring along the way. I enjoyed seeing the falls in relative solitude. It is a good place to bring a chair, settle... More

Quite secluded. We received directions from the Cobscook Campgroud which is where we were staying. Not many people there. Great for wildlife pictures. No entrance fee. It's a very, very short hike to the two viewing spots. Amazing and totally worth the stop.

40 plus years coming to Eastport Maine and we finally made it to Reversing Falls ! What a time finding it but now that we have we will go back every chance we can, So Cool ! You gotta plan it around the tides but, so peaceful and unspoiled its hard to believe. Captain Brian

Nothing to dislike. Access is Maine-ish--you can park, if you can find it!--and walk to a shoreline and take in the view, walk around, and wait for the tide to change! The you'll see some nifty nature as water reverses over the small falls in the bay. Hate to tell people to go there, because it is so nice without... More

25 years ago my husband and I found our way to Reversing Falls Park in Pembroke, Maine. Now that we live within 10 miles we thought we would revisit. Nothing has changed. It is still a small, simple, very out of the way place with no toilets, no signs and no people. But the water views are worth the effort... More

Having a summer home 3 mi. from Reversing Falls, I can vouch that there is no pulp mill or jet boat rides or ziplines at this State park in Pembroke, Maine. What is there is nature at its best. The seals and eagles give us an exciting view of nature during the herring run which starts sometime in July and... More

This was a beautiful place to stop-remote, secluded, quiet, with bald eagles in the sky and seals fishing in the water. Best to time your visit to an hour before high or low tide, then enjoy nature's show. Stick to the Leighton's Point Road turnoff of Route 1 instead of the Ox Cove Road that shows up on google maps,... More

This is a small park where visitors can see what happens when 20 foot tides change direction. It is an awesome sight watching the water rush one way, then ebb, turn to the other direction and start the rushing over again. Really a great place to visit!

The Reversing Falls Park is worth the trouble to find. It's not clearly marked, and you may wonder if you're going the right way. If in doubt, stop at the post office on route 1. He'll give you a map! It is quiet, peaceful and has nice tide pools. It seems to be a very old homestead site, with an... More
