Get back to nature at this beautiful Southern Maine beach.
Ferry Beach State Park is a truly unique natural space that welcomes nature lovers from around the country. Located in Saco, Maine, this 100 acre state park is surrounded by beautiful and rare tupelo trees which are not normally found in this part of the state. The park was named after a ferry crossing on the Saco River that once carried visitors to the beach before a bridge was built. A totally undeveloped beach area, you won’t find condos or hotels here. The only views you will get at Ferry Beach are natural ones.
A perfect place to spend a week with the family camping out under the stars, Ferry Beach is the perfect getaway. Activities at the park include beach combing, nature walking on the 1.4 mile trail system and swimming in the beautiful waters of the park. Ferry Beach is part of the longest continuous beach in Maine, boasting seven miles of the purest white sand you can find. A nature center is open during the summer months and allows visitors to learn more about the area and its wildlife. Guided seasonal programs are conducted around the park and they are a great activity for families.
Whether you want to just relax on the beach and catch some sun or try your hand at fishing, Ferry Beach State Park is the perfect spot. Remember while at the park to always follow the rules. From April 1st to September 30th, dogs are not allowed on the beach, so please make other arrangements for your pets while vacationing.
