The park, although not well signed is easy to find from Freeport using Google maps. We visited on a cold windy day, but expect that during the summer it would be quite pleasant. There are a number of walkable trails.

I was surprised when there was a fee to get into this park but it was well worth it! Great small park with quick pathways to interesting views of salt marshes and open water! Kids enjoyed low tide tidal pools and interesting shells. It was raining slightly but we all had fun! Don't miss the osprey nest on the island!

Great views and access to waters edge - short hike for those that may not be in hiking shape, but want to experience the beauty of Maines coastline. We walked off our breakfast and hated to leave.

Wolf Neck! What a little gem. Literally just a few miles from LL Bean. We love this place because our whole family can go and enjoy a walk in the woods, by the ocean. Because someone in our family is disabled and can't really do a "hike", this gives the same feel without the difficulty. There are bathrooms in the... More

I live in Maine and have been in and out of Freeport for years, but never visited this park until now. It has some lovely treks in the woods and beautiful views of the ocean.

Tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Freeport is this gem of a place which offers picnic tables, outdoor bbq and tons of well marked hiking paths, so its an excellent place to spend the day and enjoy the outdoors. Unfortunately for us we visited in mid November and while the park is still open, the weather was rainy... More
