Cobscook Bay State Park is ideal for the camper seeking solitude and beautiful scenery. The Park, surrounded on three sides by the salt waters of Cobscook Bay, has more than 100-well-spaced and secluded campsites. Many of these campsites are located at the water’s edge and provide excellent vantage points to observe the ebb and flow of the tides. In fact, Cobscook is a Maliseet-Passamaquoddy word for boiling tides. The average tide is 24 feet with some running as high as 28 feet. At low tide adventuresome campers may dig for the delicious soft shell clam.

More than 200 different species of birds, including the American bald eagle, have been identified in the Park and in the nearby Moosehorn National Wildlife Refuge. Wildflowers abound in woodlands and meadows and along the roadsides.
