“Lovely park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

Loved this park. Great rock-hopping - especially at low tide. Too cold to swim for me but there were a few little kids playing in the shallows. Went twice - once at low tide and again just as the tide was starting to go out. Was enjoying the view so much that I didn't leave enough time to do any of the hiking but the trails I saw looked nice. In fact, I wished I would have planned on spending the whole day there. On the drive out, we saw signs to McLoons Lobster Shack - GO!! It was great food, reasonable prices and beautiful view of a working lobster harbor. Much better experience than dining on the wharf in Camden where we were staying.

“Small and beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2013 via mobile

We spent the day here recently hanging out on the rocks, sunbathing and reading. This park is small and quiet- a great place to just relax. Pack a picnic lunch and find your own quiet place to enjoy the day.

“Pretty little park”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013

Small park with beautiful views. A nice place to stop for a picnic or a short stroll. We were staying near the park and decided to stop on a raining day. My daughter enjoyed walking around on the rocks.

“Beautiful beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

The beach is nice when the tide is halfway because there is plenty of sand for the kids to play in. At low tide there are lots of pools filled with crabs and other creatures that make for a fun activity. There are only 2 or 3 picnic tables with grills for cookouts and picnics. Great place to take kids.
