Maine’s state parks are getting even more popular, a report said. With 12 state park campgrounds as well as 48 state parks and historic sites across the state, visitors have plenty of outdoor recreation opportunities to choose from.

Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry Commissioner Amanda Beal and the Maine Bureau of Parks and Lands (BPL) announced an 8% increase in final attendance for Maine State Parks in 2021 compared to the previous all-time attendance record in 2020.

According to a release, Maine State Parks welcomed more than 3.3 million visitors last year compared to 3 million in 2020. In addition, three of the last four years have reported record-breaking visitation across Maine’s 12 state park campgrounds and 48 state parks and historic sites collectively.

“It is great to see more people than ever enjoying our trails, campgrounds, beaches, and ponds. Our beautiful State Parks are go-to destinations for Maine residents and visitors as they look to find accessible and welcoming outdoor recreation opportunities,” Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry Commissioner Amanda Beal said in a press release. 

“On pace with increased park visitation are the number of compliments for our State Park staff, which is well-deserved as they have worked diligently over the course of this busy year to ensure an enjoyable experience for visitors!”

In addition to the record-visitation rates, authorities also announced that Maine State Park camping reservations begin on February 1 for Sebago Lake State Park and group camping across the state.

Other Maine State Park camping reservations start on February 4 and can be made online or phone.
