You won't be sorry you turned into Moose Point State Park in Searspoint, Maine, near Belfast. The cost is minimal for a lovely view of Penobscot Bay with many picnic tables, clean restroom facilities, and a beach. It's right off highway one! There's even playground equipment for children. Maine knows what families, couples and solos need: a rest, lovely picnic... More

Moose Point is not a destination park, but rather a great place to stop and have a picnic and go for a stroll through the woods and along the water. We used to stop there when we'd be on vacation, then liked the area enough to move here. It's the perfect place to stop for lunch (which you must bring)... More

Not too many folk here which made our visit all the more worthwhile. I sat by the water and read my book while Deb took our little Boston/Beagle Dougal for a walk on the trails through the woods.

In and out in two minutes. It is on the water, so ok, good view for a few minutes. There are some nature trails, Overall, this is a tiny place, and I don't see much value in visiting here.

There are gazebos in the open areas. The park abuts the bay and if you are young or brave then you can try to go into the... More

When my wife and I return from a trip to Europe or the Southwest, we often go for a walk at Moose Point State Park. We start at the parking lot and follow the trail by the shoreline to a small rocky promontory from which one can see Belfast Harbor, Penobscot Bay, and the Camden Hills in the distance. From...

Great place to hike and play on the rocky coast! You can picnic, too. Spend the day or part of the day!

We stopped here quick. The attendant allowed us to just drive through without having to pay the fee. It was a small park with picnic areas overlooking the water.
