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.
