What to do in Roque Bluffs State Park

Roque Bluffs State Park sits on 274 acres of beautiful pebble coastline along Englishman Bay. The park's unique feature is the freshwater pond open for seasonal recreation.

Located northeast of Acadia National Park, Roque Bluffs State Park offers spectacular views of a boreal coastline. The 274-acre park is open May 15 through October 1. The remote site rests on the shores of Englishman Bay providing a picturesque view. East of the park, located out in the Gulf of Maine, is Libby Lighthouse. The lighthouse was formerly known as Machias Lighthouse because it marks the entrance to Machias Bay. This historic structure was erected in 1817 and still provides a beacon of light to watermen.
