About Wolfe's Neck Woods State Park:

Most popular for its picnic area at the rocky shore of Casco Bay and its offshore island that houses a population of ospreys, this scenic state park also offers some limited but sweet bouldering and top roping opportunities. All of the climbing is concentrated on a short 100 yard stretch of shore line on the western side of the park. The rock is highly metamorphised and studed with quartz and mica deposits. The real prize for climbers is an immense, 30-foot high, free standing boulder that has detatched from the bank and sits at the high tide line. $3 will get you into the park and an easy 15 minute hike will get you to the climbing. There is a campground just down the street and many more 10 minutes away in downtown freeport.
