Lamoine State Park is a nice 55-acre park for those who want to escape the crowds on Mount Desert Island. It has an oceanside setting with picnic areas, dock, boat access, a pebble beach and allows fishing. Since it is just north of the island on the Maine coast, there are great views of Bar Harbor…
When you don't want to fight traffic and just hang out, take a little (2+ mile) trip to Lamoine Beach and see Bar Harbor and Cadillac Mountain from the water for free. A long and mostly deserted gravel beach, it's good for seeking solitude and rose hips.
