Androscoggin Riverlands State Park, Turner

Lying just north of Maine’s second-largest urban area and within an hour’s drive of half the state’s population, Androscoggin Riverlands State Park is a 2,588-acre expanse with abundant forested habitats for wildlife and 12 miles of pristine riverfront. Less developed than some state parks, Androscoggin is primarily a nature refuge, but it still offers some 23 miles of recreational and historic multi-use and hiking trails, space for wildlife observation and hunting, and river access for boating and fishing. The Maine Bureau of Parks and Lands, which manages the park, has enhanced the park experience with trail maintenance, interpretive programs, maps and guides, and volunteer projects. A $90,550 National Park Service Land & Water Conservation Fund grant helped support the park. For directions and more information about the park, visit www.maine.gov/androscogginriverlands. The Center Bridge boat access is just beyond the entrance to the park. Look for a small blue sign with a boat on it.
