Things To Do

     

Overview

Peacock Beach State Park is a convenient drive off Maine Route 201 on Pleasant Pond in Richmond, about 12 miles from Maine's capital city, Augusta. A small beach and swimming area staffed with a lifeguard make this an ideal spot for a family picnic. The area attracts mainly locals offering summer swimming and picnicking opportunities

This new park offers visitors great hunting, swimming and wildlife viewing. Close to the costal areas and due to the lake effect, strong cold winds pass through the park. However, it doesn't stop visitors from coming. Most visitors are Richmond residents, but the park gets a few people from out of town occasionally.
