Range Ponds State Park
A great place for families, Range Ponds State Park offers swimming and large picnic and play areas in addition to a wide range of activities. Boasting 750 acres of land used by cross-country skiers, campers, canoers and kayakers, horseback riders, and hikers, Range Ponds State Park remains a frequently visited state park by visitors and locals of the Lewiston-Auburn area.
Paddling is a wildly popular activity in Maine, and particularly at this state park thanks to the smooth surface of Range Pond. Canoes, kayaks and windsurf boards dot the horizon and provide the opportunity for individuals and families alike to explore the wooded shoreline.
A small boat launch at the end of the beach provides access for boats with up to 10 horsepower motors. Maine has a variety of boating rules and regulations that must be followed, so be sure to review them before heading out on the water.
In addition to paddling and boating, visitors to Range Ponds State Park are encouraged to take advantage of the numerous hiking trails at Range Ponds State Park. Those looking for an outdoor experience with the family will be happy to know there are plenty of places to hike and even enjoy a picnic with the whole family.
