Two Lights State Park is a public recreation area occupying 41 acres (17 ha) of headland on Cape Elizabeth, Maine, that offers views of Casco Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. The state park, which opened in 1961, is named after the twin Cape Elizabeth Lights, although there are no lighthouses in the park itself. In addition to rocky headlands, the park includes the remains of a World War II–era seacoast battery bunker and a fire control tower. It is managed by the Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry.

  • This was a dream come true for me to visit, the shoreline I've wanted to see for more than 40 years. The park is so well maintained and offers plenty of seating and even with my mobility issues, it is well designed to allow for easy access to see the shore. I could have easily sat here for the next five years to take it all in.
  • Beautiful and you could climb out on the rocks. You need to be nimble as well as careful. But it was very doable. The park is built around an old WWII bunker. There are long hiking paths along the ocean and through the woods. Picnic tables provided.
