Enjoy picnicking and swimming at one of midcoast Maine's most popular day use parks located on beautiful Damariscotta Lake in Jefferson. Damariscotta Lake State Park is a short drive from the state's capital, Augusta. A large freshwater lake with a sandy beach provide a relaxing location for beach goers. Of course a trip to a state park wouldn't be complete without a picnic lunch. Picnic tables and grills are available for this popular summertime activity. To reserve the group shelter during the summer months, contact the park staff. Visitors will want to arrive early on warm summer days as parking is limited.
