Fort Point State Park is located on a peninsula at the head of Penobscot Bay and the mouth of the Penobscot River. This beautiful little park is off the beaten path, and the 200-foot fishing pier is never crowded. Floats alongside the pier can accommodate visitors who arrive by boat. There is a boat landing on the east side of Cape Jellison, off the West Cape Road. At the park, you can see the remains of historic Fort Pownall; an entrance fee is charged during the summer months. Camping is available off U.S. Route 1 in Searsport and on Verona Island, 3.5 miles upriver from Fort Point. Key Species: mackerel, striped bass, bluefish.
