“Get away from it all”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2012

You are clearly in the North Woods once you descend the hill into Greenville with the southernmost part of Moosehead Lake stretched out before you. Greeneville is definitely the "city center" of the area but Kokajo and its lakes, mountains and winding dirt roads are worth a visit.

“Spectacular.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2012

Moosehead Lake is a huge lake in northern Maine. The water is crystal clear and the fishing is great. You will likely need a motor boat to get to where the fishing is good.
One heads up: This is a large lake, so the water can get rough at times. Be careful with canoes and kayaks especially with kids.

“Take a plane ride!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2012

We were driving north to Quebec, and just stopped for a break and to look at the beautiful lake. It's so big and the hills are covered with trees, it looks kind of like a movie setting! Then we saw the sign for Jack's air tours. A quick phone call and in no time we were climbing into the prop plane.

WOW. Seeing the Lake from the air is so cool! It's not big - it's gigantic! All kinds of little islands and bays become evident, tiny summer houses tucked into places, boating skimming along the water. Our pilot even banked (sharply!) so that we could watch a moose stick it's head up out of the water where it was eating. So so cool!!!

Go, and take a plane ride!
