Reid State Park Professional Review and Guide

"Explore a long stretch of sand beach, quiet coastal forests, and wildlife-rich wetlands on this pleasant walk through one of Maine’s most popular state parks.

Reid State Park, at the mouth of Sheepscot Bay on the southeastern tip of Georgetown Island, holds the honor as Maine’s first state-owned saltwater beach. Local resident and businessman Walter E. Reid donated the land in 1946 for preservation. The 766-acre park is home to Mile Beach and Half Mile Beach, two of Maine’s most beautiful sand beaches and rare natural gems on this rocky stretch of Maine’s Midcoast. The beaches and the barrier dunes protecting them are home to endangered least terns and piping plovers and serve as resting and feeding areas for many other shorebirds."
