General Information

Description - Roque Bluffs State Park sits on 274 acres of beautiful pebble coastline along Englishman Bay. The park's unique feature is the freshwater pond open for seasonal recreation.

Attractions - Located northeast of Acadia National Park, Roque Bluffs State Park offers spectacular views of a boreal coastline. The 274-acre park is open May 15 through October 1. The remote site rests on the shores of Englishman Bay providing a picturesque view. East of the park, located out in the Gulf of Maine, is Libby Lighthouse. The lighthouse was formerly known as Machias Lighthouse because it marks the entrance to Machias Bay. This historic structure was erected in 1817 and still provides a beacon of light to watermen.

Recreation - Rogue State Park is an enjoyable seclude park nestled between Great Cove and the Little Kennebec Bay. This seasonal park offers both fresh and saltwater swimming. Walks along the beach offer sights of tiny maritime life clinging to the rock strewn shores. Beautiful rounded gray rocks and water-worn ocean glass is a favorite find. A picnic area with tables, grills, changing area and a children's playground is offered. Visitors may also fish from this site and use the trailerable boat launch.

Climate - Visitors to the Down East / Acadia Region may expect to find daytime winter temperatures averaging above 18 degrees Fahrenheit (above -8 Celsius). Summer brings southwesterly winds and temperatures averaging above 68 degrees Fahrenheit (above 20 Celsius). The region receives an average of more than 44 inches (112 centimeters) of precipitation each year.

Location - Roque Bluffs State Park is in the town of Roque Bluffs about six miles off U.S. Route 1.
