If You Live In Maine, You Must Visit This Amazing State Park

If you’re looking for a state that works to support and preserve its natural land, look no further than Maine. For a place that often gets overlooked when people consider “outdoor” states in the USA, Maine has quite a selection of areas to explore. I’m sure you know we have a breathtaking national park, but did you know that we have a state forest (Durham State Forest), state memorial (Colburn House State Memorial), and state wildlife management area (Pond Farm State Wildlife Management Area)? We also have eight National wildlife refuges and 36 State Parks!

With all those opportunities for adventure, it can be nearly impossible to narrow down your options for weekend activities. That’s why we’ve done it for you! You may have noticed that Only in Maine has begun periodically offering you articles containing information on ONE specific attraction to explore in the state. From restaurants, to natural wonders to even ghost towns, we hope this will give some attention to some of the state’s less mentioned areas.

In keeping with this goal, may we present to you one state [ark you’ll want to add to your exploration plans –  Mt. Blue State Park!

Have you tackled Mount Blue State Park? When did you visit and what did you do? Let the community know over on our Facebook!


Michelle has lived in many places, but counts Maine as one of the best. In addition to the smell of ocean water in the air on rainy days in Portland, she loves puppies, photography, funny people, the Maine Red Claws, traveling, fresh tomatoes, Cambodia and filling out forms.
