The Ellisville Harbor State Park provides a glimpse of Plymouth far from the maddening crowds with great views of the salt marsh as you hike down to the beach. The park is unblemished and easy to get too.

Great park for walking. If you are a 'birder' you will love this park. Enough variety for young and old who enjoy the out of doors.

We came to Ellisville to see the harbor seals. At this time of year the seals are known to frequent this area. The park is clean yet rustic. One needs to do a fair amount of walking to get from the lot to the water....More

This is an awesome spot to walk, bird watch and see seals while they lay on the rocks. Just make sure to lock your car as I had some things stolen today because the car wasn't locked. Also, watch for the poison ivy-it's everywhere.

This is a very cozy manageable stroll through a forest ending up at the Ocean. Quiet and peaceful scenes and great spot for a picnic lunch.
