Moose Point State Park is a day-use recreation area located in Searsport, Maine, near the Belfast town line. The state park overlooks Penobscot Bay off U.S. Route 1 and features panoramic views, hiking trails, tidal pools, and picnicking facilities.HistoryThe park was first developed as a dairy farm by the Carver family in 1859. At one point, the 186-acre property had a house, barn, two silos, and sixty head of cattle. After most of the buildings burned down in 1927, Clifford Carver and his relatives offered the land to the State of Maine as a park in 1951. It opened in 1963.

  • Beautiful location in a quiet area of the coast. Wheelchair accessible with a quick 1.2 mile loop in the park. This loop is very easy walk, I did it in flip-flops. The views are stunning on the loop, well worth the effort. The park worker was very friendly and helpful giving us all the information needed.
