What are some beautiful state parks to visit in Maine?
While Acadia might be the only national park in Maine, the Pine Tree State is blessed with an abundance of beautiful, bucket-list-worthy state parks. If you're into hiking, you'll love Birch Point State Park, a popular destination that offers a more secluded spot in the very popular Owls Head. If you're in search a park where you're likely to be without other visitors, this is the one for you! Views over Penobscot Bay make it perfectly picturesque and there are lots of activities. Swimming, fishing, and hiking are all popular past times here. Another state park in Maine we love to visit is Peacock Beach State Park. A popular destination for families, Peacock Beach State Park is great for those who love to swim *and* explore during one fun day out. The location right on the banks of Pleasant Pond in Richmond offers boating, fishing and general splashing around! What's your favorite state park to visit in the Pine Tree State?
What is the most scenic state park to visit in Maine?
While we have so much love for all 32 of the Pine Tree State's state park, one beautiful state park in Maine that truly stands out above the rest is Mt. Blue State Park. At 8,000 acres, it’s the actually the largest state park in Maine. The park is named from the blue spruce trees that cover the slopes of Mount Blue, and has some of the best hiking trails around. Visitors can also take advantage of the park’s sandy beaches, camping sites, and many scenic picnic areas. It's an immensely scenic place sure to simultaneously stoke -- and satisfy -- the flames of your wanderlust!
