Great Views. Great access. Lots of activities. Take the ferry to Mt. Kineo - worth way more than the 10 round trip fare.

We were surprised at how remote the area is. After you leave Greenville, The entire northern section of central Maine has one paved road! In an area approximately 10,000 Sq. Miles!

Moosehead Lake is a place I have been camping at since I was a kid and each time has been fun. The lake is amazing and you can see a variety of wildlife, such as loons and moose. Plenty of breathtaking views of the mountains. It is especially beautiful during the fall and fun to fish at.

A big, beautiful, clean lake. Nice for kayaking, power boating or sailing, or even taking a sea plane ride. While kayaking we even saw a bald eagle nest (with the parents and babies up in the nest). You can rent the kayaks across the street from the lake at the sporting goods shop in the center of Greenville.
