Reid State Park is a public recreation area overlooking the Atlantic Ocean on Georgetown Island, Sagadahoc County, Maine. The 770acre park is noted for its sandy beaches and sand dunes—both rare in the state of Maine—plus its rocky tidepools, salt marshes, and tidal lagoon. The park is managed by the Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry.Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Georgetown trip simple and quick.
The park lands were donated to the state in 1946 by businessman and philanthropist Walter E. Reid, a native of Georgetown who grew up in a family of modest means and who built an oceanside estate near the grounds of the present-day park.
Ocean swimming is offered at Mile Beach and Half Mile Beach, while warmer waters are found at a tidal inlet, The Lagoon, where the quieter waters tend to be 10 to 15 degrees warmer. The park also has picnicking areas, fishing, and hiking trails. The beaches provide essential nesting areas for endangered least terns and piping plovers. Other wildlife commonly found along the beaches include various shorebirds, eider ducks, clams, and mussels.

Reid State Park reviews
If close by it is worth a stop. Very beautiful park. On the left is the typical Maine rocky coast. On the right is a huge sand beach. If you plan on swimming beware, the water is always cold in Maine. more »
We had never been here but there was sooooo much to see. We explored the shore line both the sandy beach and rocks. Our 3 year old had a blast. It made our trip so worth it! more »
