Scenic, extremely private with camp sites set aside by natural topography. Ocean beaches on property, camp sites on the water. Near famous Popham Beach. Close by to beautiful mid coast Maine.

This is a great beach to take friends and family. There are always a lot of shells to see and find and if you're lucky, you might find a sand dollar. They have a snack shack which is great for the kids and the facilities...More
