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.To visit Two Lights State Park and other attractions in Cape Elizabeth, use our Cape Elizabeth trip planning tool.
Two Lights State Park Reviews
There is 2 lighthouses here both considered Cape Elizabeth one is inactive and hard to see (unless on the rocks and it located way to the left) and the other active and can be seen very well from the.... more »
Great ocean view for miles and miles. Watching the crashing waves was very humbling. I loved the park benches you could sit for hours just enjoying nature. more »
Beautiful small coastal Maine park with very interesting geological features. Perfect location for a day hike, picnic or family gathering. Group areas can be reserved. Dog friendly, with the usual rules. Friendly staff, ample parking and clean, modern restrooms. $2.00 admission for seniors, and very good seasonal rates if you'll be a regular visitor. Use care with little ones, as the cliff access is very easy. Ease your post hike hunger at The Lobster Shack at Two Lights, Cape Elizabeth!
First timer and saw whales!!!! Very nice staff let us know there were whale sightings earlier in the day, lots of parking and restrooms. Beautiful walk by the beach. Dog friendly (on-leash!) as well. Sure enough, after sitting by the water for a few minutes we saw whales swimming and diving very close to the shore!! We watched them for about an hour, very exciting! Be sure to wear sturdy shoes to navigate the rocky terrain. We will definitely go back often!
