If you love lighthouses and you like a good hike visit this park! We enjoyed our time there exploring the ledges and cliffs, watching eagles fly above and taking in the foliage. Quoddy Head is so far north many folks don't make the trip, it's like having the park all to yourself!

Sunny day at Quoddy Head and I was able to hike, sit down and enjoy the view of the water, and I even got into the rocky coast to explore the tide pools. This is a well maintained park with lots of wildlife and New England forest. Not a ton of people traffic, so you can expect to enjoy the... More

This is far from the crazy crowds. There are no vendors. This is a beautiful rugged coast, sometimes with wild, crashing surf. There are steps to the shore ( if you explore a bit).

We so enjoyed the drive and views from the park. The views, ocean breeze and smell were wonderful and soothed my soul and you must see the sunrise there or at the Lighthouse.

The lighthouse is small but impressive. The better sights at this state park are the beaches, though. Beach stones worn smooth by the waves and the rocks grinding each other down. Go at low tide to climb around the ledges exposed by the receding tide. After exploring the beach, hike any of the trails through the costal woods or on... More

The are great views from the area just outside of the lighthouse and the eastern most point marker is locate here. We hiked a few of the trails and went down to the beach. Views... More
