Very nice small state park at the tippy east end of Maine. Dramatic views of Canada across the water, a variety of short hikes on well-maintained paths are available. A final perk-- you can barbeque there if that's your thing.

The park is at the top of the country. It’s almost in Canada. The view of the water is great and while it’s real windy in October it is a nice place to walk and view the leaves and the water.

As evidenced by other reviews, this state park is a true gem. It was uncrowded (early September) and well maintained. The views were spectacular and the trails well maintained. Overall, a great place for a very modest fee.

Take a beautiful nature hike along the rocky coastline of Maine with awesome views of the ocean and rocky coastline. Climb on the rocks. Plenty of benches to relax and enjoy a snack. Restrooms at the parking lot.

I stayed at West Quoddy Station (vacation rentals); I highly recommend it. It's the closest to the park.
