This park is a great place to visit with older children or teens. The coastal trail is gorgeous but no place for little ones or people unable to many navigate roots and rocks as there are unprotected ledges and drop offs. The interior trail and peat bog are also beautiful to see. We hiked all the trails and loved it!... More

Great place to picnic, walk to the lighthouse, hike and whale watch. On the hike we really enjoyed the bog which has a nice boardwalk.

My most photographed light house. Great views of the Bay of Fundy, and Grand Manan Island. I've visited in all kinds of weather - best advice - even on a sunny warm day you might wish you had a jacket as it can be quite windy. All volunteer staff very knowledgeable and can also give you tips on where to... More

We were in Acadia for a week in July and took a day trip to West Quoddy. The drive was kinda boring and not very scenic but it only took about 2.5 hours. We were lucky to have an extremely clear day. We got to see seals swimming by and enjoyed a very short and easy walk to the beach... More

So much to see of the amazing coastlines, plants, bog and more. The longest trail is only four miles. Well worth the effort - you will never get better photo ops of what Maine looked like before development crept in.

Short on time on my last day in Lubec, I took advantage of the beauty in West Quoddy Head State Park. Within this park I was able to see the West Quoddy Head Lighthouse. QHL is a picturesque lighthouse over 200 years old, with a monument stone noting it is the Easternmost Point in the US. Adjacent to the lighthouse... More

I've been to all four corners of the U.S. And to the centers (yes, there are two...one for the lower 48, and one for the 50). Quod u Head State Park and Light is the 'corner' that is without question the nicest, most natural, and most serene. It comes at a price - however, and that price is a two... More

SO cool to see this beautiful lighthouse that we've only seen in photos before! Incredible setting. The knowledgeable volunteers in the visitor center were friendly and answered our many questions. What historic treasures these lighthouses are. Kudos to Maine for conserving this one as a state park!

Have visited Quoddy Head many times and it is always spectacular! The views are wonderful and just a great place to walk around and take in the seacoast! Be sure to check out the gift shops where they have many local items available!

We stopped at Quoddy Head State Park on our way to the lighthouse. It is a lovely little park with hiking trails and beautiful ocean views. The restrooms were clean.
