What’s New

On Thursday June 2, 2023, Chris Wall from the Maine Island Trail Association (MITA) and four L.L. Bean employees came by boat to Beal Island. They cleaned up the winter debris on the beach, removed flotsam and cleared the winter “blow-downs” on the scenic Beal Island trail. Chris and his team of volunteers can be seen moving a floating dock that washed ashore.

The AMC owns Beal Island and it is on the Maine Island Trail. Day visitors are always welcome, tent sites for overnight stays are available for rent.

In October 2022, the Knubble Bay Camp/Beal Island Volunteer Committee replaced one of the camping cook tables on the beach at Beal Island.  This was made possible because of a family’s generous donation in memory of their 20 year-old son Robert who loved camping on Beal Island.  In the spring, a plaque to honor him will be affixed to the table.
