Extremely scenic, beautiful, cold water lake, surrounded by mountains and pretty clouds. Un-crowded roadways with views. Great fishing, lots of game and of course you see the occasional moose. Well worth a overnight stay for the average tourist, a weeks stay for the hunter or fisherman. Great snow mobiling in the winter.

We have come every year for many years now with family and friends. You can rent two waterfront cottages there through Northwoods Camp Rentals. We canoe, kayak, fish, swim, enjoy the call of the Loons, seeing Moose, hiking nearby. It's a great place for family vacations.

Incredible spot to kayak, fish, golf , you name it. Stay @ the Mooshrad Lake Inn for the best views at any hour. The owners are as nice as they're cooking is good . You'll want to come back again and again.

Crossed to Mt Kineo for the hiking by the shuttle which runs regularly. Great climb up the mountain and a choice of paths. Take the bug spray!

This is my fiancée and my second trip up to Moosehead. We found it completely by accident, originally going to Portland for the night and not wanting to go back to NH quite yet, looked at a map and picked out a lake with a cool name !! :) How untouched by man and pristine this place is blows our...

Why Moosehead? because we were determined to see moose! and we did - eventually , on a tour. It was worth the drive (we hadn't originally planned to go as far north as Maine) because we saw a HUGE bull feeding on the waters edge. We also enjoyed fantastic breakfasts at the hiker cafe in Monson, took some beautiful walks... More

The lake is spectacular and offers boat rides, seaplane trips, scenic views and as you drive around the east side of the lake at dusk you will see moose at the side of the road. So quiet at night that you have to shout to make sure you are still on Earth.

My wife and I were very impressed by the beauty and peacefulness of Moosehead Lake. We enjoyed visiting here on Tuesday (26 May) and Friday (29 May 2015). Our first stop on Tuesday was at the village dock in Rockwood, from where we walked around the grounds and took many nice photographs of Mt. Kineo. If we had time, we... More

An absolutely beautiful lake! We rented a small boat from the Wilsons and toured the lake. There are guided boat tours if one perfers.
