Summertime in Maine means warm weather, plenty of sunshine, and lots of opportunities to get outside. That’s why we’re always on the lookout for new and fun places to visit. Luckily, Maine is home to about 48 state parks and historic sites. That means there’s always something new to see and explore. If you’re looking for a fun state park that’s perfect for summertime, this is it!

Birch Point Beach State Park is typically open from 9 a.m. to sunset, Memorial Day to Labor Day. You’ll still be able to access the beach during the off-season by parking near the gate without blocking it. The fee of $3 for Maine residents and $4 for non-residents can only be paid with cash or check.
