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.

  • This is a lovely spot with a very easy "hike" along the water. There are plenty of benches to sit for a spell and picnic tables with grills.  more »
  • This was a nice place to go see with trails, clean restrooms. Worth the time to go visit. We took our dogs there and it was great for them.  more »

  • Great place for family camping trip. Lots of hiking trails right in the park. Down town Camden is very close by. There are amazing views of penobscot bay.
  • The park is a great stop looking out over the bay. There's a playground for children age 5+ that can make this a great stop for a quick family hike and picnic. Be prepared to pay the entry fee for a Maine state park.
  • This is such a beautiful park. There is a huge picnic area with a park for kids. Visitors can climb down to the beach and explore the tide pools. There are also a few short hiking/walking trails. Only downside-stay on the trail because there is a little poison ivy.
  • Great quite place with views of the water. Definitely worth a visit. But entry fee of $4 is high
  • A quite look at Maine's rocky coast. Perfect for beach combing. Grills available for picnics
