Fort Point (Penobscot River) Professional Review and Guide

"This pleasant trip can include exploring Fort Point State Park on foot and a picnic. Fort Point State Park is a well-maintained site at the eastern end of Cape Jellison adjacent to Stockton Springs.

This makes a particularly good trip with kids, because you can keep the paddling legs short to leave lots of picnic and running-around time on land if needed. There are picnic tables and pit toilets close to a large pier on the north side of the point where you can land a sea kayak. There’s plenty of room to pull boats up and out of the weather, and this is a fairly secure area to leave the boats for an afternoon of hiking. Please note that the cliffs along Fort Point below the lighthouse are steep and unguarded in some areas."
