Still unsure of what you are doing for Father's Day?  Why not take dad to one of Maine's nine state parks... for free?

Yes, according to a post on the Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation, and Forestry Facebook page, Maine residents can visit Maine's state parks for free on Sunday (June 21st).

Whether dad wants to hang out on a beach, hike through the woods, or climb a mountain, there's a park for him.  You could visit Damariscotta Lake State Park, Lamoine State Park, Fort Knox, Popham Beach, Reid State Park, Fort William Henry, Quoddy Head State Park, and dozens of other spots around the state.

Sunday is Maine residents' day at state-owned and -operated locations*, from 9 am to closing. Vehicles with Maine...

According to the post, there are a few excluded areas.  These include: Acadia National Park (makes sense, as it is a National Park and not a state park), the Allagash Wilderness Waterway, Baxter State Park, Maine Wildlife Park, Peacock Beach, Scarborough Beach, and Swan Island Penobscot River Corridor and the Penobscot Narrows Observatory.

Instead of hanging out in the backyard, take dad on an adventure for Father's Day!
