  • I cannot say enough how wonderful it is to drive this state and find so many gems and lotsa history. Yes this is one of the smaller ones but please go and see for yourself and bring the kiddies.

  • 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.
  • Small state park. Right off route one. Nice bathrooms.. Great scenery. Well cared for walking path with plenty of benches. Outstanding view. Plenty of picnic tables. Highly recommend it.
  • I love Moose Point State Park! The views of the bay from the trails are just great. You can have a cook out here and the grills are already there for you to use! A few seasons ago there was a pair of nesting Merlins ( a kind of falcon ) in the park and the babies were flying all over the place. It was quite a sight. Although they do not show up that regularly, you can on occasion see seals here too. The park staff are really friendly and helpful and the bathroom facilities are clean and nice. I can't wait to get up to Moose Point State Park!
  • Great walking trails and beautiful views...cooler by the water
  • A nice little park in an easy to get to location. It's a great place for a picnic with a wonderful view of the bay.
