Moosehead lake was the best place I have ever gone to. It was so quiet, and there was a lot of relaxing, but it was an awesome experience. We also saw a moose!

Went to the nearby state park which borders the lake. Do not miss it - perfect for families and hikers, beach-goers and nature enthusiasts. Had a young doe share the trial with us!

Beautiful lake sprinkled with colorful islands. it was the end of the season so many things had closed, but I believe they have a paddle boat that tours the lake. there is fishing and canoeing are just a couple of the fun outdoor activities. We went moose hunting.

Funny to have a waterfall picture for the largest lake in Maine. A beautiful lake, both private and publicly owned. Nov 1 many amenities are not operating, parks may be closed but its pretty!

Great lake for fishing, boating, or just a ride. I camped out on one of the islands and loved it. I hope to go back

This is a spectacular part of America that is so special during this time of the year with breathtaking views of the Lake and surrounding mountains. The summer has been replaced with the calm and quiet of fall -- wonderful!

My job is extremely stressful. I make the five hour drive to Moosehead Lake stay at Wilsons camps and sit with coffee in hand and look out on the lake. Talk about nature and her healing ways!!!!!!!

We had never been to Moosehead Lake and we were transported by the superlative beauty of the land. We stayed over night and drove along some trails and dirt roads hoping to see a moose but we did not. Still it was worth it.

We fell in love with this area and we will be returning! Shoot, I am looking at planning on going there for retirement if I can swing it! Moosehead lake is awesome and will take several vacations to see enough to know for sure!
