Right now is a perfect time to plan those special family events and celebrations.

The Maine Bureau of Parks and Lands came out with a great list of picnic areas available from state parks in Maine.

This list includes state parks across the State of Maine and includes not just picnic sites but also picnic shelters, with roofs, as well.  These will require a purchase of a day pass and may require additional fees but will be well worth the cost for a memorable family event.
