Kayak Rating for Damariscotta State Park

A very pleasant, picturesque, and enjoyable lake with facilities, swimming, and very vocal loons.


Damariscotta Lake State Park is a protected area in Jefferson, Lincoln County in Maine's Mid-coast region. The park encompasses Damariscotta Lake, which is 12 miles long.

KAYAK RATING: 5 KAYAKS                

The park has a clean swimming area, well-maintained "facilities", and lots of picnic tables and grills, making it a great place for a family outing. While there is no actual boat launch in the park, they do allow kayaks to be launched just to the side of the roped-off swimming area. There are public boat ramps on the southern end of the lake, and residents do have their share of motor boats but, overall, the traffic is not too heavy.

 Entrance. Folks 65 and over get in free. Adults $4


 Beach. Launch area just past the trees.

 The swim area is roped off.

 Loons abound on the lake
We'll be on this lake a number of times this summer. It's only seven miles away and much more to explore.
