Very nice small state park at the tippy east end of Maine. Dramatic views of Canada across the water, a variety of short hikes on well-maintained paths are available. A final perk-- you can barbeque there if that's your thing.

The park is at the top of the country. It’s almost in Canada. The view of the water is great and while it’s real windy in October it is a nice place to walk and view the leaves and the water.

All anyone would want at a state park. Camping, cabins to rent, beach to enjoy walking trails close to Lubec, small market nearby. Planning on returning next summer.

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.

Great hike- families could do this but always be careful. Trails marked well, boundaries in place in most areas to help with safety, good map and lots of places to stop and gaze out over the bay. I would not take kids under 8-10. You...More

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