If you or your group wish to hold your “special summertime outing” here this season, it’s easy to do. All we need to know is:
- The approximate SIZE of your group expected to attend.
- Will the outing be CATERED or will you be doing your own cooking?
- The DATE that you wish to have the outing and a possible alternate date, should this not be available.
- How would you like to handle the METHOD OF ADMISSION PAYMENT? Admission Fees of $2.00 per Child under 12 years and $4.00 for Adults are our standard fees which are charged to everyone (Children under 3 and over 80 years of age are always FREE), whether they have a reservation or not, and may be paid individually at the gate or; if the company or group wants to take care of the total admission fee, then a ticket system is used. If a ticket is used, you would provide each of your guests with a ticket the size of a business card. This would then need the Company Name, Date of the Outing and marked either “Adult Admission” or “Child Admission” for each ticket holder. These tickets would be turned in at the Entrance Gate for admission individually. The tickets would then be totaled and the actual fees due would be billed to the company after the party is held.
Once we have established the above, we can quickly and easily make a Reservation for you. Depending on your needs, we can arrange for a variety of areas offering Sun or Shade, groves or open lawns, locations for caterers, electrical sources for PA Systems or Bands, Ball Fields, etc. Other services that are available include: the use of tents (Company listing available), Caterers Listing. The Park also has Wood, Ice, Cold Drinks, Ice Cream and Food Services on Premises. A large bandstand located by the beach front is also available for rental for those needing one. Camping in the Park is $27.00 per site per night, without electric, $32.00 including electric. We do request reservations for overnight camping.
RESERVATION CHARGES AND FEES ~ Our standard ADMISSION FEES are charged to everyone, with or without a reservation ($2.00 for Children under 12 years of age and $4.00 per Adult). Admission Fees may be handled by an individual or ticket basis. RESERVATION FEES are determined by the number of people your are expecting to attend your outing and the size of the area you require. Our Reservation Fees start at $100.00 for a group of 50 people or less, and range to $375.00 for an entire field which will accommodate 500-600 people, with their automobiles. THESE ARE THE ONLY TWO FEES (Admission and Reservation) you will be charged when making a reservation at Thomas Point. The Reservation Fee will include: Guarantee of your location for the date of your choice from 9:00 AM ‘til Sunset, Allow for Parking Space within your site, Tables, Fireplace, Clean-up and allow for ample Game Area for your guests. Your area will be easily recognizable to your guests by a sign with your groups name at the site location. This fee also takes care of general clean-up, however, if your outing is professionally catered, we do request that the caterer remove whatever trash possible. We follow the same “Take In, Take Out” Trash Policy used by the State of Maine. Reservation Fees are to be received within two weeks of the date of booking, to confirm the date.
Should you wish to rent the Main Lodge for the day, please inquire for details and availability. A separate fee is required.
