Desert of Maine

The Desert of Maine is comprised of sand and mineral deposits left behind by a glacier during the last Ice Age. Veins of hundreds of shades of sand run through the Desert floor. A haven for indigenous fora and fauna, the Desert offers visitors a chance to see trees half covered in sand, wild flowers, mushrooms, wild blueberries, and much more. The Farm Museum, housed in a barn that dates to 1797, is from a time when a 300 acre farm covered the Desert. The Desert also features a butterfly room and campground. The entertaining, educational, and unique experiences of the site make it a great place for groups of all ages.
