20.00 for a carload to park might seem steep but divide that by even 3 people and for about 7.00 each you get a lot of bang for your buck! Gorgeous clean sandy water. Lots of coves to swim in. Long trail for a walk...More

This spot is an amazing place to spend the day. There are tide pools, sand bars, and seaweed covered rocks galore. Kids (and adults) can find hermit crabs, snails, really B-I-G crabs and more. The water is relatively free from seaweed, too. There is an...More

This is a private beach that costs $20 for a car to park at this beach. It is well worth it. I would say that this beach is a bit off the beaten path and didn't seem to be overly packed for being a super...More

Park doesn't open until the beginning of May, but was a great place for a walk and a visit. No facilities open yet so be aware. Some great views across to New Castle and the lighthouses in the channel.

This is a gorgeous beach spot. Tidal pools are a fun way for the kids to spend the day. (At least at low tide) Bring your own food and drink.

My wife and I had been to Fort Foster before. But this time we brought our son, his wife, and our 16 month old granddaughter. It costs $10 admission, but is well worth it. Go straight to the harbor parking area. The vista is from...More

We had to visit this place. Our first time here. We walked around and just enjoyed the sights. Being closer to whaleback lighthouse and the life saving station was amazing. I took lots of great pics. We loved the dock too.

I thought I'd found the perfect place to walk my 2 young dogs on an unplanned visit to Kittery. I am a dog owner who actually follows park rules. If there is a leash law, I keep my dogs on-leash. I always do so in...More

What a hidden gem. Absolutely breath taking. Had a lovely time walking the area. The groundskeeper even gave us more history on the fort.

Hi, There is a gate that allows everyone through with several locations to park. There is Handicapped Parking but I do not know if it's free. It's well worth the trip.
