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. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date.
