Attractions - Maine's State Parks are designed to harmonize with mountain, lake and seashore. All the state parks offer lovely scenery from Maine's famous rocky coastline to its splendor of the great northern wilderness. State Historic Sites preserve the rich heritage of the American Revolution and Civil War. Public Reserved Lands total almost a half million acres of wild lands and are managed for a variety of resource values including recreation, wildlife and timber.

Recreation - Twelve State Parks and the Allagash Wilderness Waterway provide camping opportunities. Most of the parks offer picnicking and hiking trails while every park offers the opportunity to view wildlife, observe diverse forest and soil communities, enjoy nature photography and an opportunity for relaxation. The State Historic Sites offer visitors the chance to explore old forts, of which many protected America's waterways during the American Revolution and Civil War and the chance to view archaeological sites. Many of the recreation opportunities on the Public Reserved Lands include camping, fishing and hiking. Hunting and trapping are also permitted on the Public Reserved Lands.

Climate - The climate in this northern state is cool year round. Summer high temperatures average near 75 degrees F, but often reach 90 degrees in the southern portion of the state. Summer evenings are cool and a sweater is usually necessary. Fall is usually dry with crisp days and cool nights. Expect nighttime temperatures to reach into the high 30s, especially in the northern regions of the state. This weather brings spectacular foliage colors between early September and late October. Winter can be long and gray in Maine, but recreation opportunities abound to beat the cold. Average daytime temperatures from December through March remain close to 20 degrees F. Nighttime temperatures can dip below zero. Spring is usually wet with snowmelt and rains. Moderate temperatures between 45 and 60 degrees F can be expected during the day.

Location - Maine's State Park, Public Reserved Lands and State Historic Sites are found throughout all regions of the state. Many are concentrated along the Southern Maine Coast, Greater Portland Region, Mid Coast and Down East. However, they stretch west to the New Hampshire state line and north and east to the Canadian border.
