Rented a small cabin on adjacent Wilson pond,in Greenville. Moosehead Lake itself is HUGE and beautiful. Lots of excellent hiking, wildlife watching, kayaking/boating, ATVing all over this area. Our days were full with excursions--B52 historical site, Barren mtn, Wilson falls, Shirley, Mt.Kineo, ice caves. The town of Greenville has several very helpful guides for outdoor activities and moose watching (... More

Lake is very beautiful and peaceful. Water is very clean and there is plenty of wildlife to see. Only downfall is the lack of boat rentals for the size of the lake.

We've been going to Moosehead Lake for 40 years, with 30+ years at our family house in Sandy Bay. The lake is absolutely gorgeous; with great views, sunsets, quiet boat rides with no one in sight, a quaint town in Greenville with nice restaurants and shops, and locals that are as friendly as you'll find. There's no place like it... More

It wasn't a hard climb to see the falls. They were beautiful. It was a scenic drive to the falls. We got to see plenty of moose. The small town was great for shopping & eating.

A beautiful place to visit, watch out for moose if driving in this area after dark (or any time). The Fly-In in the late summer is fabulous!

Visited Moosehead Lake last week for the first time, and really enjoyed my stay. The lake is amazing, and very peaceful to experience. I camped at Lily Bay State Park which I left a review for as well. The highlight for me was hiking Mt. Kineo after taking the shuttle from Greenville.

If you think you know Maine from its rocky coast but haven't been to and on Moosehead Lake you have missed the other beautifully scenic part of Maine. ATV's, Snowmobiles, sea planes, hikers, motor boaters, kayakers, canoeists, fishermen, and those that want to wildlife watch need to come and enjoy. Stay in a state park, rent a cabin, stay in...

Stayed at Balsom Woods campground and brought our ATV. Miles of trails and had a ball looking for Moose and the Lake is beautiful. Greenville is a great town with restaurants and that North Maine Woods we were looking for. 5 stars

40 miles long and 20 miles wide it's hard to miss...even from space! The summer sky and water are both a deep color of blue that no camera can capture...so you'll have to make the trip!
