Beautiful beach area. The admission to get in for our party of three was what we would pay to park at a much more popular beach like Old Orchard. We arrived before noon and were able to park right near the bathhouse. The bathhouses were average. The changing area is uncovered so be wary of gusts of wind that could blow your curtain open. They could benefit from adding hooks to keep the curtains closed or maybe weights on the bottom to make them a little heavier. The bathroom was clean when we arrived but not so much by the end of the day. It wasn't unusable but stalls were starting to run out of toilet paper and the floor had litter on it. They could benefit from having staffs checking the bathroom more regularly. But I realize it's a state park and not a country club. The concession stand sold your basic candy, ice cream, drinks and water toys. Very standard and also reasonably priced. The beach itself never felt crowded. We had a great spot near the water. Earlier in the day there was a lot more seaweed washing ashore, by 2:00 it was gone. The beach has a very "local" feel to it, which I love. Not a fan of boardwalks and such. The water was cold but where isn't it in Maine?
