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.

The bog trail was easy and interesting, the coastal trail and the coast guard trail had beautiful views of the ocean and woodlands. The coastal trail is harder, more up and down and longer.

We were staying about 4 1/2 miles away. It a beautiful summer day. As drove over we could see the fog bank. Once we got there, we were totally socked in. We could even see the ocean.

The business was landscape painting en plein air and this park offered outstanding subject matter from views out into the bay to close-ups of assorted trees, flowers and berries as well as rock formations. Well graded hard pack trail along the cliff. A great place...More

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