Wonderful scenery, had a great 30 mile skidoo trip out on the trails. We took the skidoos out onto the frozen lake to get into the woods. We were lucky to visit the crash site on Elephant Mountain and pay homage at the crash site where the B52 came down in 1963. The site was adorned with American flags, the... More

One of the most memorable things me and my family did while there was go on a canoe trip with a guide to a pond to see moose. They are absolutely stunning animals and everything you hear is peace and quiet aside from the frogs in the pond. You just feel like you're with nature.

I spent most of my week long vacation here. Every day held something new to see and do! I had my Service Dog with me, which I believe is allowed; I'm not sure about 'regular' dogs. The trails are kept in excellent shape. The rocky shoreline yields plenty of interesting things to look at. On one side of the lake,... More

We went on a cruise on the Katahdin steamboat, called "Kate". What a relaxing cruise up & down this huge lake. We had an added attraction as we were there for the International Sea Plane Fly-In. Fun. Beauty & history surround this gorgeous lake.

What's not to like?? It is beautiful, peaceful, serene. You could just sit outside and look across the lake all afternoon.

Absolutely beautiful! We went to several areas on Moosehead, climbing Mt. Kineo one day, standing on a private dock near Prong Pond and fishing on the banks on several coves. It's October, so the water was chilly and rough at times, but it was breathtakingly beautiful.

This is my eighth trip to the Moosehead area in the last 58 years. It is the first time I have been in the fall. The fall colors on the trees by the lake are spectacular. I was quite surprised because in my mind, the area was just evergreen trees. The weather was perfect.
