Damariscotta Lake State Park is a protected area of Jefferson, Lincoln County in Maine's Mid Coast region. The park sits at the northeast corner of 12-mile-long (19 km) Damariscotta Lake. It was formed in 1970 and, as of 2011, was one of Maine's most visited state parks. The park's group shelter that had stood for 33 years before being destroyed by vandalism in 2009 was rebuilt and opened two years later.
Activities and amenities
The park offers a sandy beach, swimming, canoeing, and picnicking facilities.
