This "park" is really just a spit of gravel & stones where a few locals fish and give out of towners dirty looks. Not great for young kids! Do yourself a favor and go to the lovely little beach near the Lobster Pound restaurant, good parking, fun for kids and soft sand as well as tasty take away a few steps away!

Literally a stones throw from my home this little gem of a park is at the point where the Ducktrap River flows onto Penobscot Bay. There is a small strip of beach and a tidal pool. So peaceful and picturesque- bald eagles nest there..great for wading into the water, sitting taking in the sun, or shell collecting. Never a crowd..most folks from away don’t realize it exists.

It's hard to find, a good thing, since every nook and cranny doesn't have to be a tourist attraction. (Also annoying is the disregard of "private road" signs by drivers.) The beach is uncrowded most of the time we've been there during the week, with some fishing and chair sitting going on. I was there on a Friday around noon at the end of June and there was a camper and a couple of cars there. It' s a beautiful spot, with a rocky beach, the ocean, a river, and a house on the hill.

For the last 50 years this has only been a locals spot, and today, anyone who lives in Lincolnville can no longer enjoy this area. Every single day in the summer, the lot is filled with out of state license plates and no one is swimming. Just clogging up the beach. Thanks Trip Advisor for ruining one of the last places locals could all duck in for a swim after a long hot day serving the tourists. Beware if you come here, the locals will not be pleased. Go to the Lincolnville Beach instead.
