The Beach

Jenkins Beach is a family beach with many amenities to make your day at the beach memorable. Grill your burgers and dogs or try some of ours from the Snack Shack. Try your hand at sandcastle construction and then cool off in the clear Green Lake waters. Spend a quiet afternoon fishing from one of our boats.

In 1940 William Partridge Jenkins, grandfather of current day owner Joe Jenkins, purchased the beach from the Peterson family who had opened the it to the public ten years earlier.

Come enjoy the warm sands and cool water at our white sand beach on spectacular Green Lake. We are located half way between Ellsworth and Bangor, off Rt. 1A.

For a small fee, both lake dwellers and day-trippers can join over 50 years of visitors making summer time memories at Jenkins Beach.

We love our pets but unfortunately, not everyone does. We must request you leave your pets at home. Thank you.
