On June 19th, we celebrate Maine Resident's Day. The Department of Agriculture, Conservation, and Forestry recently announced that all Maine residents could attend many Maine State Parks and Historic Sites for free between 9 am and close on June 19th.

Rain or shine, this is a fun way to explore some of the beauty that Maine has to offer. However, not all of Maine's State Parks or Historic Sites will be included as part of the free admission.

According to The Department of Agriculture, Conservation, and Forestry, on June 19th Maine residents will not receive free admission to Acadia National Park, the Allagash Wilderness Waterway, Baxter State Park, Peacock Beach, the Maine Wildlife Park, Scarborough Beach State Park, Swan Island, the Penobscot River Corridor, or the Penobscot Narrows Observatory in Prospect.

Where You Can Get Free Admission on June 19th

Granted you are not able to get admissions to every Maine State Park and Historic site, there are still a lot of places in which you can go for free. It is important to note that the free admission is only for day use, meaning that it does not cover overnight stays. You can choose to stay locally or venture out and experience someplace new.

If you are wondering where you should go, the maine.gov website has a park and land search to help you narrow your options. The search will help you look at all options by park, site, rail trail, or public land. You can even select by region, facility, activity, or trips that are only one tank of gas away.

There are so many options to explore and enjoy the day in Maine. If you want to see more information about the participating State Parks and Sites, you can view more with this outdoors in Maine guide.
