  • I am sure there are are some others, but this was the small, sandy beach that we enjoyed visiting on our trip. There are rocks on either side of the beach that are fun for climbing, and lots of people...  read more »

  • Great beach if you're looking for something not crowded in the summer. Very peaceful and a great place for taking photos. We saw a bald eagle and several loons (among the other "regular" wildlife) in the short time that we were there. A note though: unlike many state parks which are open 24 hours even though they say they "close" at a certain time, Birch Point has a gate across its entrance which is locked from around 7pm at night to 9am in the morning when it reopens.
  • Fairly nice small beach. The rocks adjacent to the beach are pretty cool. If you are close by, its a good place to go, secluded, good to play with the kids. Do not travel far for this one. The southern beaches in Maine are bigger and more oceany.
  • Beautiful view and relaxing place. I love spent my morning at the park, fresh air and clean place.
  • Great, little beach. Lots of rocks to explore or sand to relax on. Don't forget cash to pay for the parking.
  • Peaceful. Small beach. Picnic tables.great kayaking entry.
