Take your Daddy to a Maine State Park this Sunday for a picnic!

This Sunday is Father's Day, and Governor LePage has opened the gates to Maine State Parks for all Maine residents!

In today's press release the Governor said, "I encourage Maine families to visit and enjoy Maine State Parks and Historic Sites this summer and throughout the year. There is a lot to see and experience, and all visits are affordable every day, especially Father’s Day.”

The State will not charge admission fees this Sunday, the 21st, to show appreciation for Maine residents and their continued support of State Parks and historic sites.  All vehicles bearing a Maine state license plate will get free access to all 48 State owned parks.

My family frequents Lamoine State Park where there is a $3 per person charge.  But, not this Sunday!

Some parks and sites will still continue to charge this Sunday, they are: Baxter State Park, the Maine Wildlife Park, Peacock Beach, Scarborough Beach, Swan Island, or the Penobscot Narrows Observatory in Prospect, although admission to Fort Knox State Historic Site will be free that day.

The State has a very informative website that will tell you all about it's Parks and Historic sites!
