“Beautiful lake.”
Review of Megunticook Lake

Ranked #6 of 37 things to do in Camden
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed April 11, 2012

This lake has lots of islands and coves. It meanders around land that is mostly undisturbed. Most of the camps and houses have been there for many years and are clustered in areas. Although the Megunticook Mountain side gets a lot of motorized boats, the rest of the lake is usually less noisy.

The ocean is far too cold except for the very hottest days of the summer. So head a couple miles inland to Lake Megunticook for a swim in the crystal clear waters. There are many places to go, ask a local what will suit you best.

A great place for the kids to run, the water is full of leaves on the bottom, the water is cool and there are alot of small fish for the kids to chase. great place that is free to have a picnic.

We picked up our kayaks at Maine Sport on US 1 and they recommended this lake for a medium excursion. The put in area was well marked and convenient, and the lake shape was great for our day trip. There are little islands that you can stop at to go swimming or to take a break. the residents do no appear to mind outsiders using their lake. We enjoyed ourselves.

Plenty of free parking to enjoy views/picnic, and our first experience of the many clean public portaloos at many scenic parking spots in New England.
