This lake is one I've visited since I was a toddler and it never fails to amaze me through the years. The names of some of the resorts have changed but the incredible wildlife viewing remains unparalleled in this huge lake setting. Mt. Kineo sits in the center of the lake and is so majestic. Enjoy this well cared for... More

I spent 1 full day here and it's already beckoning me back. This makes the top 10 of most beautiful places I've ever been . We went on a moose safari through this area and spent some time adoring it from the shore. There are 4-hour long cruises of the lake, a testament to its enormity. There are also plane... More

I have to say that my recent holiday at Moosehead Lakes Region was my best vacation in over 20 years! God has blessed us with such natural beauty and glory. We stayed at Lower Wilson Pond...actually at Wilson Pond Camp. We hiked Mt. Kineo....wow! Loons, ducks, moose, and even a Bald Eagle!. If you need to get out of the... More

Traveled here with the family and rented a cabin. (Northwood Cabins- great people and cabins) It was a great experience but 3 nights was plenty for us.... I have a 14 year old and a 17 month old so when my teenager discovered there was no WIFI at the cabin OR TV... I think his world ended a bit. (hahaha...love... More

This is the largest lake in Maine and is absollutely beautiful. However, make CERTAIN that you look carefully at the weather before venturing out in a small craft, because when tbad weather blows in quickly, you can find yourself in serious trouble, especially if you are in a kayak. Large waves can and do develop. There are several good fishing... More

Loved Moosehead Lake, and the activities it offers. Boating, canoeing, hiking (on Kineo Island), moose sighting. If you want to be active, this is a great place!

I just got back from a week at Moosehead Lake. There was always something to do or see or, if you prefer, just sit back and enjoy the views, breath in the mountain fresh air or converse with the friendly locals. Lots of shopping, great restaurants, hotels with breathtaking views or small campsites to RV, tent or rent a cabin.... More
