No Ferry Service Bathhouse Closed and...   

There is no ferry service January – March 2020.  Ferry service for the 2020 season is scheduled to begin Friday, April 3, 2020.  Currently, access to Bear Island is available by canoe, kayak, private boat, or private water taxi.  The bathhouse on Bear Island, with rest room facilities and potable water, is closed and winterized.  Camping is permitted but campers must bring all necessities with them including drinking water. Campsites 9 - 11 are currently closed through 3/15/2020 due to beach erosion.  Open fires are not permitted at any time.  Barring freezing temperatures or maintenance issues, the bathhouse will reopen on March 16, 2020. All facilities on the mainland are open including the trails, kayak launch, and boat ramp. 

Please see Hammocks Beach Updates for additional information.

Plans for mainland area at Hammocks Beach State Park

The planning process for the development of the mainland area of Hammocks Beach State Park took place from August 2016 to spring 2017. We are excited to present the ideas and concepts that will shape the mainland area of Hammocks Beach State Park. We anticipate these new plans will allow for improved visitor experience and opportunities.
