Beaches

Freshwater beaches abound in Maine’s Lakes and Mountains. Enjoy the easy refreshment of a cool dip in crystalline lakes set like jewels amid lush green forests.

Home to several stunning state parks, the region is diverse with the best swimming holes that Maine has to offer. Check out Mt. Blue State Park in Weld. Open year-round, the park boasts a charming, sandy lakeside beach with spectacular views of Mt. Blue and the surrounding mountains, as well as an extensive network of trails, a popular camping area, boat launch, and picnic area. Other state parks include Range Pond State Park in Poland, Rangeley Lake State Park, and Sebago Lake State Park, all with their own unique attractions and loads of swimming opportunities.

There are also plenty of public beaches to visit, such as Tassel Top Beach in Raymond. This family friendly beach, it’s an ideal spot to pack up a picnic and the kids for a peaceful mid-morning dip. If you’re looking for a full-on beach day and love convenience, look no further than Kiwanis Beach on Watchic Lake in Standish. With picnic tables (both sun and shade), concessions, bathrooms, and a recreation field, it’s an ideal spot for all-day fun. Of course there are other great beaches, such as Anasagunticook Lake in Canton, Dundee Park in Windham, Lakeside Park in Rangeley and many more.

Whether you want a quick dip or a full day of fun in the sun and seriously serene swimming, Maine’s Lakes and Mountains has you covered.
