Beaches in Maine’s Aroostook County Region
Aroostook State Park
In 1938, Presque Isle citizens donated 100 acres of land to the state, leading to the formation of Maine’s first state park — Aroostook State Park. The park offers a beach area on Echo Lake, although no lifeguards monitor swimmers. Fishing, canoeing, and paddle boating are popular activities at this state park. Aroostook State Park remains open year-round, with campsites open in both summer and winter months. After swimming at the beach, rinse off in the showerhouse and eat at one of several picnic areas. Entrance fees are $2 for residents and $3 for non-residents; call 207-768-8341 for more information.
