The beach is located a short walk from the light. we strolled down and walked the beach and rocks. It does not offer a view back to the light, but there are several picnic tables and some nice views of the water.

While staying in the Camden area, my wife commented that she would love to walk the beach somewhere along the coast. I did some quick searching and found this little park in a book on Maine travel. The author talked about this being out-of-the-way and...More
