Ocean Park is located at latitude 43.52N and longitude 70.38W. The climate is varied and tempered by the Atlantic Ocean—with its Labrador current and the proximity of the Gulf of Maine to the Gulf Stream—both summer and winter. The activity of these ocean currents offshore from the Gulf of Maine, result in more moderate summer temperatures and warmer winter temperatures than expected in this northern latitude.

The average summer temperature is in the 70's and winter days on the coast average 32 degrees. Coastal Maine may experience a week or two of 90 degree plus temperatures during the summer. Cool ocean water in the summer results in frequent early morning fog, particularly when the there is a significant temperature difference between the cool water and the warm land. On average coastal Maine experiences 80 - 120 sunny days per year.
