Recognizing the need for greater shore access around Inner Penobscot Bay, the State had long sought a property that could provide area residents with a site for swimming, sunbathing, picnicking and windsurfing. A 100-acre property on Sandy Point in Stockton Springs offered all the attributes the State had been seeking–with more than half-a-mile of undeveloped sandy/gravelly beach (a rare resource along this stretch of coast).
