Get a grip folks. The green flies can be bad, but only a short 10 day window end July. June, none. August, none. The beach is massive, with very tall waves on one side, and short waves on the other. Beaches are about 2 miles...More

Yes you can enjoy the beach in mid coast Maine. Long stretches of sandy beach do exist here at this state park. Beautiful views of the ocean. Tide pools to explore, climb on top of rocky outcrops to get even more sweeping views. Beach bonfires....More

If you are looking for a place to catch the waves, complete with nature trails and 2 concession stands/restrooms, than this is your beach. Very scenic with picnic tables and BBQ pits.

Reid State Park's beach is a perfect combination of rocky coastline and sandy beach. Absolutely gorgeous! A sweet, happy place to begin my road trip north to Acadia National Park, but unlike Acadia, not overrun by tourists.

I don't believe that clamming is allowed with or without a license. Also, the shoreline of the park doesn't have any "flats" where clams would live.
