Roque Bluffs State Park, Roque Bluffs

Roque Bluffs State Park is a public recreation area on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean in the town of Roque Bluffs, Washington County, Maine. The 274acre state park overlooks Englishman Bay from Schoppee Point and includes 60acre Simpson Pond and six miles of walking trails. Visitors can inspect glacial striations attesting to the Ice Age history of the Maine coast. The park is managed by the Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry.
In July 2013, two women, one from nearby Machias and the other visiting from Pennsylvania, drowned after driving off a boat ramp in the park during high tide and inclement weather. The women had been rescued earlier in the day after getting lost while hiking in the fog.

  • Been going here since I was a little kid. Salt or fresh water, take your pick here. Great place for a cookout.  more »
  • Fresh water pond on one side of the road, gentle ocean on a rocky beach across the street. Hedges of wild roses, red-wing blackbirds, eagles, forest trails. Almost thirty years of respite, peace...  more »
  • There's pretty good signage to direct you into the park. The beach parking lot has a little box to put a "fee" ($6 for non residents) to park. The lot has a lake on one side with outhouses and a little kids park. The other side across the road has a (for Maine) large beach. There's not much else here and it's pretty small for a state park.
  • It's the best beach ever! Nice and quiet and never busy like most are. We love it husband and kids and I that is. Walking along the beach I love doing as well. Just BEAUTIFUL!!!
