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 capitol, 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. The group picnic shelter at this park is equipped with electricity, running water and a group grill. 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.
