Gorgeous views

Mount Blue has something for everyone. Winter months enjoy hiking, cross country skiing, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, walks with the dogs. Summer time is the perfect season for camping (we don’t but plenty of others sure do), kayaking, canoeing, beach, swimming, hiking, walks with the dogs, etc. Definitely worth a visit!

Nice Clean Campground
Jul. 2018 • Couples
This was our first visit. The sites were well-spaced and wooded. Outhouses were well situated and clean. The beach was clean and uncrowded. We will definitely return.

Great place for hiking!
Sep. 2017 • Couples
This state park is "user friendly" for all ages. I took my 88 year old dad to Center Hill which we drove to the top. There was a parking lot and picnic areas. Unfortunately, it was a very warm day and not many picnic tables in shaded areas that you didn't have to climb to. Regardless, we enjoyed the view of the mountains across from the lake. Throughout the area, there are various hiking trails and camping areas. It is open year round and is the largest state park in Maine on 8,000 acres of land. There are over 25 miles of trails! So, enjoy this wonderful gift that Maine has to offer!

Great camping near by Tumble Down Mountain
Sep. 2017 • Family
Very spacious camp sites we had one tent and a 26' tow behind trailer and had plenty of room for a kitchen area for food prep. Sites have a fire pit with grate and a picnic table. There is lake where you can launch canoes or motor boats. We brought our stand up paddle boards, it's a very beautiful lake. Reserve the camp sites in advance.

Park Beach visit.
Jul. 2017 • Family
This review is just for the state park beach which many people visit for the day. Not the campground which is attached. We have been coming here once or twice a year for many years for day trips to the beach. This might be the last year. As out of state residents this year they were charging $7.00 per person to enter and use the beach. Sorry but that is excessive considering there are many great lakes with free town beaches. Okay money aside. I think the views from the beach are the nicest I have ever seen. The lake is beautiful and quiet. Very relaxing spot with a grassy area and some sandy beach areas as well. For some reason the sand is rocky as well as the surface under the water. Small rocks that could easily be screened out but they just leave them there. They have some canoes and paddle boats available for rent. They have a lifeguard on duty and the water is comfortable. It slowly gets deeper and the deepest part is around 6'. No diving or dock to jump off of. Nothing around as far as stores or restaurants. Bring it with you! Very scenic but the state is getting too greedy with the fees. Will not be back. Cell service is also mostly non existent for you AT&T users.

Favorite camping spot!
Aug. 2016
This was our second summer camping at Mount Blue State Park. All the staff we came in contact with were friendly and helpful. The sites were large and had wooded space between neighbors. The bathrooms and shower facility were great and very clean. Theres a beach, which you can walk, bike or drive to, that is spacious. The water is clean and shallow, you have to walk out pretty far for it to be an adults head. There are also bathrooms and changing rooms at beach. If you are looking for a good hike try Tumbledown. It is a long and strenuous hike but the view at the top is worth it. We love Mt Blue and will be going up again this summer.

Beautiful
Jun. 2017 • Couples
We stayed at Mount Blue State Park last weekend. It is secluded, very beautiful and relatively quiet. I really liked this park, it has both swimming and hiking. The only thing that wasn't perfect is that most of the bathrooms are porta-potties. If I return I will try to get a site near the main bathrooms that were quite nice.

Another Nice Memorial Day Weekend Camping Trip
May 2017 • Family
For the second Memorial Day weekend in a row - we started out camping season at Mt. Blue State Park. As we found last year, sites are large and well spaced, convenient to outhouses, and have everything you need - fire pit with a nice grill and picnic table. We were close to the trail to the beach. The hot showers and flush toilets are a plus. Next to us this time was a camper who felt the need to run his generator for 2 hours from 7 AM to 9 AM on our first morning. We and the rangers asked him politely to stop (generators are supposed to start at 8 AM and not be run if they are bothering their neighbors.) but he refused until he had a full charge. I wonder if there should be a part of the park for those with generators or if there should be hours in the middle of the day when it would not bother anyone. I certainly understand if there is a medical need, etc. to run a generator - this did not appear to be the case. Other than that, the most important thing was having all of my kids together camping, delicious meals, and a trip to the beach and a little badminton / baseball time is what I will remember from this weekend!!!!!

Hike
Sep. 2016
The hike up Mount Blue was a fun one, the sign at the trail said says 1.6 miles each way however my phone tracked ~5.25 miles round trip, it certainly felt like more than 3.2 miles. That being said, the view at the top is certainly worth the climb, there is a nice tower at the top that you can climb up to get a better view but honestly the view from the ground isn't much worse
