There are so many wonderful State Parks in Maine, including a bunch in our area.

Among others, there's Lamoine, Quoddy Head in Lubec, Fort Knox in Prospect, and beautiful Lake St. George off Route 3 between Belfast and Augusta.

Maine State Parks feature beaches, trails, camping and picnic areas.  They're just an overall good time and make for a perfect day trip destination for the entire family.

Buying a Maine State Park Annual Pass helps keep these areas maintained and staffed, and if you buy your 2021 pass early this year you'll actually get to use it for the remainder of 2020 and then all of 2021 for a total of 16 months!

The annual pass goes on sale this Saturday, August 15th, and you can buy one at a Maine State Park that is "manned", including the one in Lamoine. Or, you can purchase one online.

An annual Park pass is $55 per person, or $105 for a Vehicle Pass which will admit up to 17 passengers. A Senior Citizen Vehicle Pass is $45.  Those over 65 are granted admission to any park without a pass.  More information on fees and Maine State Parks HERE.

The annual park pass will grant you "day use" which is from when the park opens until sunset.  It does not include any sort of camping fees or admission to special things like the Penobscot Narrows Observatory between Verona Island and Prospect, although it does include admission to Fort Knox.

To save you a trip, here's is where they are NOT accepted:  Acadia National Park, Allagash Wilderness Waterway, Baxter State Park, Maine Wildlife Park, Peacock Beach, Penobscot Narrows Observatory, Penobscot River Corridor, Scarborough Beach, the Songo Lock, or Swan Island.

We'll see you at a Park!
