Ellisville Harbor State Park, Plymouth, Massachusetts, USA


Ellisville Harbor State Park is located a few miles north of the Cape Cod Canal on one of the few unspoiled sections of undeveloped coastline between Boston and Cape Cod. It is 100 acres of forest, meadow, marsh, bog, and beach.  Ellisville is one of the ten villages of Plymouth.

The upper marsh hosts many species of birds and other critters in its rich ecosystem, shown here at high tide.

In 1857, Henry David Thoreau stayed at a tavern near here in Ellisville on his foot journey between Plymouth and Cape Cod.

At the end of a very pleasant walking trail from the main parking lot, one arrives at the beach, shown here on a rising tide.
