The views and just being out in the Northern woods is the best. Pittsburg is the nicest place to visit while! The people are the nicest you could ask for, real friendly and more then happy to help out with any question you may have about their great area.

Plan on at least a week to visit the First Connecticut area - and bring your fishing pole and your camera. Leave your phone at home (you won't have service anyway)! The lake water is clear and cold with plenty of lake access for those of you with boats/canoes/kayaks. This region is beautiful any time of day!

This was our first trip to this remote area, and we loved it. Memories linger still, and the area definitely tugs at my heart. We like to hike and kayak, and this is perfect for both. Little Hellgate Falls trail is off Magalloway Road, between 1st and 2nd lakes, difficult to find, but well worth it. The beginning of the... More

This area is really nice, sparsely populated with plenty to do outdoors. Fishing, hiking, wildlife viewing, etc. If you're into doing things outside, this is a place to consider.

We stopped in this area while driving back from Quebec City to Boston for a couple of days. The natural beauty of this area cannot be described. Very rural and relaxing. We spent a night on "Moose Alley" as described the best area around to try to see a Moose. This is the area just North of town on Rt... More

I liked everything except I wish I'd caught more fish---not lake's fault, probably my own. Beautiful part of the world.

On this trip we brought our boat to explore the 1st Connecticut Lake. There is a wonderful launch site and adjacent picnic area with lots of parking. Launching and pull-out were very easy on this ramp. Our trip around the lake was beautiful. The next morning my husband took the boat out again to fish - he landed several rainbow... More

Been fishing this area for 21 yrs. Whatever your fishing style, this area has it all. Large lakes, small ponds and rivers. Trolling, fly fishing, casting or still fishing. No crowds-no waterskiers. Just fisherman.
