Maine Wildlife Park

State run wildlife park whose wildlife is permanently injured, human dependent or had been raised in captivity; so cannot be released back into the wild.

Looking for something to do for an afternoon and don't want to spend a fortune, definitely check out Maine Wildlife Park. Its affordable, $7 for an adult and slightly less for children over 5. They are open rain or shine, and we decided to go on a rainy afternoon before shopping in nearby Freeport. There is a lot of walking, the park is spread out, but the animal exhibits are really neat. Where else are you going to see so many native animals in one spot? We especially enjoyed the cougars, such majestic cats that you wouldn't want to run into in the wild, so here is your chance to see one up and close.

We spent about an hour here and found the photos and descriptions very interesting. The history of Poland Springs Water is laid out and the old plant building is refurbished as a small museum. It's worth a visit!

Beautiful views on a nice boat ride with our baby grandson. He is 20 months and enjoyed walking around the top deck with us. Lovely lakeside homes and beaches. Snacks and drinks including alcoholic available to purchase on board. Narration was good, not too much either.

Reviewed By disneygirl41 - Reading,MA

This state park campground is on a beautiful lake with impeccable bathrooms and friendly staff. The only draw back is that the camp sites are on top of each other which was a big disappointment. We only stayed one night and I probably would not return. We were kept up by country music playing after quiet time and a baby crying at 6am.

I saw a review for the Shuga Shak on line, and it had limited hours. One website said - if you stop by and we are not open just ring the bell and we will come on down. And they did! We were headed back to Baltimore, and stopped in at 10am (found that time on line), but they did not open until noon. We rang the bell and the owner came down. He told us great stores about how he started the business and about the different colors of maple syrup. This is a must see when in Poland Maine.

Sabbathday Lake Shaker Village

The Sabbathday Lake Shaker Museum is located within the perimeters of the only active and functioning Shaker Community in the world. The museum was first organized in 1931 by Sisters Iona Sedgley and Ethel Peacock in hopes of educating the public about the "truths" of Shakerism. Thousands of visitors have come to explore this unique and sacred place of work and worship. Six of the 18 existing structures at Sabbathday Lake are open to the public. Throughout these buildings there are twenty-seven exhibit rooms which explore a continuum of over 200 years of Shaker heritage in the Maine Communities. We request that all visitors remember that this site is a home and to respect the privacy and work schedules of the Shaker Community. With the exceptions of the Shaker Store and Museum Visitors' Center, access to any building is restricted by guided tour only. 1-hour guided tours leave our Visitors' Center every hour on the half hour beginning at 10:30am with the last tour leaving at 3:15pm. The Shaker Museum is open from the Friday of Memorial Day weekend through Columbus Day. Open Monday through Saturday, from 10:00 am to 4:30 pm EST. Please note that the Museum and grounds are closed on Sundays but Sunday Meeting worship is open to the public. We offer a full schedule of workshops, concerts, and special events throughout the year, please visit our website for our full calendar of events.

Glorious distraction on a hot summer day. Water was nice temperature and when I swam out a bit farther a loon appeared right next to me! Good facilities, shady spots for picnics, lots of families with little kids. Super packed the day I went!
