Department of Agriculture, Conservation & Forestry
In 2021, Maine’s State Parks and Historic Sites drew a record of 3.3 million visitors, surpassing the prior visitor record of 3 million in 2020. These visitors and their activities contribute an estimated $100 million to the state's economy.
With funding from the Maine Jobs & Recovery Plan, Maine's Department of Agriculture, Conservation & Forestry will undertake urgent capital infrastructure improvements at State Parks. These investments will help address major safety and stewardship concerns, enable the parks to accommodate continued growth in visitation, and bolster the recovery of Maine's vital tourism and outdoor recreation sectors.
