- Swan Lake sits in the upper section of the Mid Coast Region offering day use facilities from Memorial Day through Labor Day. This is a fairly new park encompassing 67 acres of beautiful rolling hills and mountains. As a consequence, this scenic park is heavily used during the summer months for group picnicking and several other recreations.
Recreation - Swan Lake State Park features a large attractive picnic ground offering tables, grills and shelters for large groups. A summertime-guarded beach is offered along a sandy shore. Summer shoreline fishing opportunities are enjoyed as well. Swam Lake is known for its abundant game fish because the lake is a heavy producer of feeder smelt. In addition, the lake is heavily stocked with brook trout that thrive off the smelt. As a consequence of the abundant smelt, the brook trout grow to incredible lengths of 15 to 18 inches. Most likely, this area inhabits some of the largest brook trout on the East Coast. Lake trout and landlocked salmon also exist in these waters. Most are caught right after the ice-out in late April or early May. This time of year is also popular for catching white perch that seem to congregate close to the boat launch on SR 141 located along the lower tip of the lake.
Climate - The summer vacation haven of Mid Coast Maine sees winter temperatures averaging above 18 degrees Fahrenheit (below -12 Celsius) and average summer temperatures above 68 degrees Fahrenheit (20 Celsius). The Mid Coast Region receives on the average less than 38 inches (97 centimeters) of precipitation each year.
The park is located on the shore of Swan Lake, on SR 141 north of Swanville.
