Went in grey weather, but had fun just watching the waves crash onto the rocks, exploring the rocky beach looking for mica, etc. A beautiful spot recommended to us by a friend. Would love to go back in nicer weather!

Reid State Park lies on the Eastern bank of the outlet of Kennebec River and consists of several miles of beautiful sandy beaches, rocky escarpments, and back beach estuary environments with many birds (including the critically threatened piping plovers whose nesting sites are protected). In the last year a new beach house with excellent bathrooms has been erected. This beach and Popham Beach on the Western outlet to the Kennebec are both premier places that exemplify Maine at its best. Five Islands is a small marina and restaurant outside of the park that offers excellent seafood in season as well as views of the Sheepscot River.

I went to Reid State Park today, not knowing what to expect, then I started down the first trail and wow! The view was gorgeous! There are different paths, easily accessible, clean...such a great place to spend the day! A great place to take photos! It was not crowded, I am guessing that is because it is so early in April...I want to go back during the summer and visit again!

I love the fact you can pick what type of beach you want to go to at Reid, a lagoon, waves, its all there, as well as easily accessable facilities
