Moosehead Lake is surprisingly gigantic. At every turn we saw spectacular views. This is a must see body of water.

We rented 2 canoes from the Northeast Guide Service for a 5pm canoe tour of Moosehead Lake. The reason the tour was so late in the day, is because much like the deer in NY, the moose are on the move at dusk and dawn. The timing gives you the best chance at seeing a moose. A tour guide drove... More

The food was winter hearty and most creative. I wonder how many dishes were prepared ahead and frozen. The clafouti and the haddock were dry. The salads could be smaller. The chili was delicious.

My sweetheart camped at Moosehead Lake 50 years ago. So when we decided to vacation in Maine, he was very excited to have this opportunity to walk down memory lane. Although we did not participate in any of the activities (fishing, hunting, hiking, etc.) that visitors to the region usually participate in, we thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the area.... More

One of the most scenic lakes in the US. Magnificent scenery with miles of undeveloped shoreline. Stunning, unless you are a city person who needs crutches

A few years back, I noticed Moosehead Lake while paging through a road atlas - a large lake in the rugged interior of Maine. I figured it would be a cool place for a vacation or vacation stopover. My wife and I were not disappointed. Serene, peaceful - local residents extremely friendly and genuine. Beginning to see some significant fall... More

A nice relaxing trip out on the lake might be just what you need. There is plenty of low relief glacial topography here. The Katadhin sets off by the maritime museum for a 3 hour tour. It is rather low key overall. There is a lot of seating on the deck but few places to be comfortable inside! Dress warmly.... More

A beautiful lake in the north of Maine. It is a place more of natural beauty rather than a commercialised location so its much a case of making your own fun although there are tours of the lake on a steamer and also air tours by float plane which we thought were very good value but then again we are...
