Camp Ellis Beach

You can see the effects of time and erosion at Camp Ellis Beach, a seaside community in Saco at the mouth of the Saco River. The beach at Camp Ellis is nearly gone, eroded away by natural forces of storms and the man-made forces of the breakwater, or jetty, that juts out into Saco Bay. The disappearing beach has been replaced with an extensive seawall of granite blocks extending northward from the jetty. While you won't find much beach here, you may still enjoy the walk along the long breakwater out to sea. You can also charter a fishing boat or rent a kayak. You'll find public parking in the area of Camp Ellis Avenue, Eastern Avenue and Lower Beach Road.
