We went there for 2 days. The beach was huge and clean. Perfect for all ages. The bathroom was also clean till the end of the day it was a little rough and NO toilet paper to be had. Weather was awesome and can't wait to come back next year. It cost us $14 to park with 2 adults and... More

Popham Beach is a great beach for families. On the state park side there is a small rock island that you can walk out to at low tide and explore. There are also a lot of small tidal pools formed during low tide that the kids love. The beach is pretty big, recommend walking off the state park part to... More

This beach is easy to access with plenty of parking. The beach is beautiful and provides some amazing views of Maine's coastline. The beach is plenty spacious so that you are not right on top of another family.

A few years back our family visited Popham beach while vacationing in Maine. Our family travels to Maine annually to visit family and always end up on the southern coast so this visit was a change. I absolutely fell in love with Popham Beach! The views are amazing! It's not crowded...ever...even when it is at capacity. This is because it... More

Great fort, great beach! When the tide goes out you can walk out to a small island. You can spend the whole day here. Parking at the fort is very limited!

When I walked out past the bath house/restroom building, I couldn't believe my eyes. The beach stretched out forever it seemed. At the opposite end where the coastline started there was a huge rock island, and headed that way over a sand bar to get to it. From there we could see several other islands out in the water. From...

Spent a day here a few weeks ago. This is a beautiful beach and park, well worth thr trip or to visit if you are in the area. At low tide the beach was enormous with nice sand and views. One of the nicest beaches we have been to in New England. The grounds are well maintained with very clean... More

This is a great Maine Park with a beautiful beach! When we were there some people were building sand castles, some sunning themselves, some surfing, some just walking the beach, some fishing. There is something for every beach lover! The restrooms are clean and there are showers, both inside and outside for washing sand off your feet. There is also... More
