Description - Two Lights State Park is just minutes east of Crescent Beach State Park and Cape Elizabeth Lighthouse. This beautiful rocky area offers ocean-side picnicking with spectacular views of the Gulf of Maine. This site was once a W.W.II defense installation. Concrete remnants are at the heart of the park. In addition to the beautiful rocky shore, a small freshwater lake is available for fishing. There is a short trail that meanders from the lake to the coast and through the picnic area.
