Trail runs along ocean with stunning cliffs and views. Iconic West Quoddy Lighthouse anchors the park. Make sure to visit the bog with its unusual plants.

Nice park, free entry, adjacent to lighthouse. Picnic area, and many trails to choose from--into the woods, to a large bog, or along the shore line. Maybe you'll see a whale?

Loved having a picnic on the shoreline here. Plenty of picnic tables. Take your camera! There are walking trails also, so want to take comfortable walking shoes also.

Don't miss this very beautiful state park. The bog trail looks like a New Zealand rain forest and the trail high up along the rocky shore is one of the best hikes in Maine.

I stayed at West Quoddy Station (vacation rentals); I highly recommend it. It's the closest to the park.
