Barrett's Cove Beach - Megunticook Lake

Photo Credit: Alison Denton Jones


Megunticook Lake is located at the base of the Camden Hills in Camden. At the eastern end of the lake, just three miles from the harbor and the ocean, is Barrett’s Cove Beach, a beautiful spot for swimming and picnicking that is rarely crowded. The beach has a designated swimming area and a shallow area for children. A diving platform floats offshore. This beach has no lifeguard. Adjacent to the beach, you'll find a grassy area with picnic tables and grills, and an outhouse nearby. Parking is free and close to the beach. A boat launch is located just around the cove, where you can set off by kayak or boat to explore the lake. Camden Hills State Park offers tent and RV camping on 102 sites. The campground also has restrooms, showers, a playground and day-use area, and many miles of mountain and woods hiking.
