Head Beach in Phippsburg is part of the family-owned and operated Head Beach Campground and Cottages. The 1,000-foot long beach near the tip of Phippsburg peninsula looks out across Casco Bay and is a perfect spot to enjoy the sun, go swimming, play or simply relax and read. The beach is protected by ledges at both ends so the waves here are mild, just right for the entire family to enjoy.
There is a $5 parking fee for non-registered campground guests. Parking and restrooms are available just ahead of the beach dunes. Pets are not allowed on the beach. The campground is a seasonal campground where sites are rented for the entire summer season.
Nearby Fort Popham, a semicircular granite fort built during the Civil War that guards the mouth of the Kennebec River, is worth exploring. At the Bates-Morse Mountain Conservation Area, go for an easy hike over Morse Mountain to Seawall Beach and enjoy beachcombing amid the sounds of the surf and abundant bird life. Walk the narrow streets and enjoy the shops and restaurants of historic Bath, known as the City of Ships for its long maritime heritage.
