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 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 »

    Located across the bay from Belfast, this is a nice state park. Opens at 9 until dusk. We packed a lunch and enjoyed the view. There is a rocky beach and a few trails to walk around.  more »

    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.

    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.
