We went on a cruise on the Katahdin steamboat, called "Kate". What a relaxing cruise up & down this huge lake. We had an added attraction as we were there for the International Sea Plane Fly-In. Fun. Beauty & history surround this gorgeous lake.

What's not to like?? It is beautiful, peaceful, serene. You could just sit outside and look across the lake all afternoon.

Absolutely beautiful! We went to several areas on Moosehead, climbing Mt. Kineo one day, standing on a private dock near Prong Pond and fishing on the banks on several coves. It's October, so the water was chilly and rough at times, but it was breathtakingly beautiful.

This is my eighth trip to the Moosehead area in the last 58 years. It is the first time I have been in the fall. The fall colors on the trees by the lake are spectacular. I was quite surprised because in my mind, the area was just evergreen trees. The weather was perfect.

This is without a doubt one of my favorite spots to visit. Everyday offers something special. We love the water and moose watching. Saw three on this visit.

It's far enough up into Maine that it's not crowded, even during leaf-peeping season. I hear the fishing is very good.

Cute small town in Northern Maine. Motels were a bit dated but functional. Pizza was tasty and had a great breakfast buffet at Kelly's Landing.

On a very short trip, and one after Labor Day weekend when lots of places close down, the lake was always there to appreciate. We kayaked to a small island (40x100 ft.) which was a treasure. The ferry didn't seem to be running, but would be in summer. Great views of lake from town up the east side to Lily... More
