Abstract

Cameron Mountain, near the edge of Camden Hills State Park, was purchased by the Nature Conservancy and added to the state park. Within months, construction had begun on a wide mulit-use trail, eventually arousing local concern. The state stopped work to allow planners to avoid the steep terrain that had been local users' chief concern. Androscoggin Riverlands recently became a state park, and the public process shaped the state's initial plan. Managers at Maine's state parks are often left to their own devices because there are no individual management plans for state parks. When the Morse River changed its course, a new bathhouse at Popham Beach State Park was almost swamped. Residents say if consulted, they would have advised against the site the state chose for the bathhouse.
