A short drive from one of Maine's major urban areas, Lewiston and Auburn, Range Pond State Park welcomes visitors who enjoy the wide sandy beach as they swim, picnic and play. Most activity centers on the waterfront which is easily accessible because of the smooth, surfaced promenade that parallels the pond for 1000 feet immediately next to the beach.

A resource room and group picnic area is available for rental.

Watersports are popular activities; small boats, canoes, kayaks and windsurf boards dot the horizon. A public boat launch site is located at the end of the beach and is limited to 10 horsepower motors. Stay advised about Maine Lake Ice Out dates at www.maine.gov/dacf/iceout.

Leisurely walks are a must on the two-miles of easy trails comprised of old logging roads and railroad beds. A new group shelter, playground, and handicap accessible enhancements have been completed.
