There’s A Little Slice Of Heaven Right Here In Maine And You’ll Want To Visit

Beautiful coastline? Check! Forest and trees? Check! Both of these combined into one incredibly beautiful, but lesser known state park? CHECK! There are more than 35 state parks throughout the state and while some are well known, a fair few of them mostly sit undisturbed waiting to be discovered. This beautiful state park in Maine is located in the mid-coast and while it’s a favorite of folks in the area, it might be unknown to those from out of town.

If you love Maine’s natural beauty as much as us, check out the Maine Nature Lovers Facebook Group. You’ll find beautiful photos shared by fellow Mainers and fun discussions about where to go to enjoy the best of the outdoors in Vacationland! We often feature photos from the group for our newsletter and once a week we highlight a featured photographer from Maine. Check it out and join here!
