This is a state park with NO place to purchase food or drinks so make sure you pack a cooler! There is a fee to enter the park as well. There is no showers, just a changing area.

Who can go wrong by visiting a beach. This beach is so soothing and great for all to hang out on.The lull of the waves is so inviting. Walking or jogging the beach is a must to do. Few shells but they are there.

Ferry Beach is great for swimming, it's close to Portland, not overly crowded like OOB or Higgins. Great scenery, very relaxing.

We did not try camping there when we visited in late June, but found the park to be not very crowded.
