Scenic, quiet

Great place to get away, yet right outside of busy Freeport. We stayed at the campground. Lots of walking trails.

Stopped here on my way to Boothbay and had my lunch on a huge rock on the water, watching hawks, osprey and lots of other birds. It was glorious on a warm summer afternoon! Tough to leave to get back on the road. I'd go again in a heartbeat!

We visited the park upon the recommendation of the innkeeper at James Place Inn. What a great experience. We visited at 6 PM in the evening and took the short hike to the osprey nest viewing area. The fledglings were getting quite large. We were also there the following day to see their first flight. We found the staff very... More

Great park to take a stroll in and stop at the many trails to watch the open water and sit on a rock. The trails aren't strenuous at all so it's great for any level. The fee was $6 per person. It is also about 10 minutes away from Freeport Outlets.

This little state park as several nice paths that take you along and to the edge of the ocean. depending on the tide you can walk on the sand or explore the tidal pools. This is close to Freeport so you won't be alone always but there is plenty of room.

A lovely quiet spot with miles of trails right on the ocean and in the woods. There is a small playground for kids and some picnic tables, but we like to walk the dog along the scenic shoreline. A great place to spend an afternoon with nature.

It was a wonderful experience, getting back in touch with nature. The walking trails range from easy to challenging. Most trails were quite easy to navigate. Wear sturdy shoes and bring a camera to visit this state park. No overnight camping though.

Flat, well cared for trails which are well marked. Meanders through the woods and then gives a few spots where you can get down to the boulders along the water. It is NOT a beach. Also, it costs $6 per person to come in - so be prepared to fork over some cash. There's an osprey nest you can see... More

My son and I hiked around the park a little while we were in Freeport. The only two things to do seemed to be to picnic or hike. NOTE: if you hike in the evenings near sunset, which we did, wear some high-concentration deet repellant as the no-see-ums are awful (they eventually drove us out of the park). It's pretty... More

Nicely marked hiking trails. Easy trails, but not accessible. Beautiful views. Only wish the trails were longer. Longest was less than 2 miles.
