Cobscook Bay State Park is a state park, surrounded by the salt waters of Cobscook Bay, and located four miles (6 km) south of Dennysville, Maine. The park contains 888 acres (3.59 km2) of land and provides magnificent views of the ebb and flow of the tides. The name Cobscook is a Maliseet-Passamaquoddy word for boiling tides. Tides on average rises to 24 feet (7 m) high with some reaching as high as 28 feet (8.5 m). The park is a heaven for bird watching with the park's over 200 species of birds, including the American Bald Eagle.
