8 Lesser-Known State Parks In Maine That Will Absolutely Amaze You

There’s no shortage of outdoor fun to be had in Maine. While it’s easy to revisit the same places over and over again, this spring we recommend trying something new. Travel further than the towns nearby to discover what Maine has to offer. Heading to these lesser-known state parks in Maine also means fewer crowds, but lots of fun!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
