Popham Beach State Park
Popham Beach State Park Review
Popham Beach State Park has bathhouses and picnic tables. At low tide you can walk several miles of tidal flats and also out to a nearby island, where you can explore tide pools or fish off the ledges. The park is on a peninsula facing the open Atlantic, between the mouths of the Kennebec and Morse rivers.
Percy's Store. About a mile from Popham Beach State Park, the road ends at the Civil War–era Fort Popham State Historic Site, an unfinished semicircular granite fort on the sea. Just before the fort you can dine in and enjoy the beach views at Spinney's Restaurant, or grab a quick bite next door at Percy's Store, which has picnic tables and a path to the beach. It's a beautiful, secluded end-of-the-road locale. 6 Sea St., Bath. 207/389–2010. www.percysstore.com.
